BB’s story


This is BB. She’s 14 years old and was surrendered to Schipperke Club Rescue at the beginning of September. Thanks to Debbie Moore who found her advertised for sale on the internet and went to collect her and drive her up to me. Her condition was shocking. She was terribly underweight, had really bad teeth and a malignant tumour on her leg. After discussion with our chairperson Diane Forknall it was agreed this little girl should be given a chance. Surgery was performed to remove the tumour but this left an open wound which needed dressing several times a week. She’s pictured here with her nurse Jess who treated her and eventually the wound healed. She also had 12 teeth removed. She had 4 small meals a day and put on weight. She is also deaf. Fortunately I was made aware by Linda Bisland that a friend of hers, Syd had lost his Schipp and was feeling the loss. When told about BB he was keen to get her. So today BB went to live with Syd in Glasgow pictured here. He was overjoyed when he saw her and I have no doubt they will be very happy together. This has been very expensive for the Club Rescue and without your support this beautiful gentle girl would have been put to sleep. So a big thank you everyone who donates to our Rescue. This is what happens to your money.
