Teddy is a spanish dog who came to the Uk recently. He was living with a potential adopter when he decided to pull himself out of the adopters hands, whilst wearing a harness and his lead. He survived running through Dorking high street on the A25 and dived into the countryside around Brockham and Betchworth. A large number of people helped with putting up posters, making local people aware, and looking for this energetic dog. Five days later he was spotted by a small group of doglost volunteers, of which I am one, coming out of a garden and making off down a lane. He was skillfully scooped up by a quick witted passerby (no easy job) and tied to a gate. Veronique, one of our group of volunteers was alerted and quickly drove to make him safe. He has a small injury to his head and a lot slimmer but otherwise undamaged by his adventure. It is thrilling to be part of such a fantastic little local group when the outcome is a happy safe reunion.
I was raised with dogs always about the house. Cairn terrier, German shepherds, Belgian shepherd, Bull mastifffs, Dachunds, min poodles. As soon as I could - the search was on! What bred would suit me? Then I saw a shaggy dog - the rest is history!
