Our Staffie boy has now been named Buzz.
He had a relatively comfortable night last night and he is recovering from his shock. Today was a hard day for him as he had to have his wound cleaned vigorously to help clean it out and it will have to be cleaned like this twice daily to stop any severe infection setting in.

WARNING: GRAPHIC PICTURES. One of our volunteers decided to take her dogs for a walk at Emo Woods. On entering the woods, she could hear a puppy yelping in the distance and she followed her dogs lead towards the yelping. Arriving close to where the yelping was coming from, a gentleman who was also out walking his dog, told the volunteer he had found a puppy but couldn’t get to it.
