Shhhhhhh *wishpers* Angel has only just arrived, and she is very anxious at the moment
She was found straying with her best friend Toby, who is possibly Angel's pappa. Their owners were traced, but after a difficult conversation with the Community Safety Wardens they agreed to sign both Angel and Toby over to the Home as her owners couldn't give the dogs the care they need.
Angel is very overweight and the staff will be putting her on a weight control diet when she is more settled, but at the moment the staff are struggling to persuade Angel to eat anything at all.
She hasn't wanted to move from the comfort of her bed since she arrived.
When incoming dogs are anxious and unsettled we allow them as much time as they need to settle into their new environment.
Although the dogs have to be separated during the night, Angel has been sharing her kennel with her best friend in the whole world - Toby - during the day. She clearly gets a lot of comfort from being near her pappa so the staff would definitely consider rehoming them as a pair.
Over the coming days Angel and Toby will be continually assessed, and if they are able to be independent of each other the staff may consider splitting them
If you'd like to meet Angel pop up to Newport City Dogs Home! TEL 01633 290 902 between 11am - 1pm and 2pm - 4pm, on weekdays, 11am - 1pm and 2pm - 3.30pm on Saturday. Please note: the home is CLOSED on Sundays.
Rehoming fees are from £120 depending on the age/breed of the dog, and include 1st vaccination, flea & worm treatment and neutering.
Angel has come a long way in a short time under the tender care of the staff and volunteers at Newport City Dogs Home.
She hit the walkers list this weekend, and stepped out for a walk in the park with Toby, her bestie, to the delight of our volunteers.
Angel and Toby still have a journey ahead of them until they are ready to be rehomed, and we are very grateful to our very good friends at Dogs Trust Bridgend who have offered to continue with Angel and Toby's care over the coming weeks and we have no doubts in our minds that they will continue to make progress in the care of the Dogs Trust.
Angel and Toby may have left the building, but until they are rehomed they won't leave our thoughts, and we are looking forward to following their progress.
