The pups, who are all aged between 6 months and 4 years old, are Poodle crosses who were found abandoned on a local farm. They were malnourished and covered in matts and dried faeces.
Helen Chittock, manager at the charity’s Lincoln Farm centre, remembered how hungry they were when they arrived: “They were ravenous when we gave them their first feed, but they have calmed down a lot and are steadily gaining weight”.
Centre staff were desperate to clean the dogs and after a much needed bath they were all more comfortable.
The dogs, which have been named Goofy, Tweety, Pluto, Taz, Bunny and Bugs, are now seeking forever homes. After such a traumatic period they are nervous at the moment but are gaining confidence by the day. Helen added: “They rely on each other and when separated can become quite timid. The dogs have already come on leaps and bounds and are now ready to find their new families and homes”.
The charity warns that new owners will need to have time and patience to help the dogs learn to trust again but are confident that the dogs will make wonderful family pets. If you feel you could give a home to either Goofy, Tweety, Pluto, Taz, Bunny or Bugs, please contact the charity on 01929 471340 or visit their website www.margaretgreenanimalrescue.org.uk.
