Wilma arrived at DBARC in November 2019

As Wilma has been a long term resident we are happy to have helped with her non specific general care including spay, ear treatment, worming, flea treatments, food and accommodation costs. MAS also supplied her with her very own adoption bag comprising essential items including Equafleece, harness, lead, collar plus lots more.

Update from Wilma’s long term fosterer Joanna

Wilma has been part of our family for about 5 weeks but she has settled in so well, it feels like much longer. She already knew the rest of my gang as we had visited regularly while she was living in Munchkin Manor. Wilma LOVES a cuddle and has endeared herself to everyone she has met with her gentle, loving nature. She is fun and playful and she likes to eat remote controls! Wilma is a very good girl on her walks, although she is still on a lead as we are not yet confident that her recall is reliable enough. She sleeps on our bed at night and by day, she hangs out on the sofa with the rest of the gang.

Penny (Wotsit)

Wotsit arrived at DBARC in November 2019 and was adopted in June 2020

Update on Martha from Trish who also adopted Brodie from DBARC

“Martha has a real zest for life, she loves playing with a ball and will drop it near us so we can throw it for her. She is bouncy, fast and funny. Martha still doesn’t like being picked up but she will come to sit with us so we can stroke her.

Martha loves Brodie, she has to be near him and loves cuddling up to him”.

Ivy arrived at DBARC in December 2019 and was adopted in March 2020

Update on Ivy from Vikki who also adopted Maggie from DBARC

“Ivy is doing really well. She loves her toys and will not go out into the garden without a toy in her mouth. She chooses to go and play now and climbs into her toy box to find the toy she fancies. She has a mind of her own and now has the confidence to choose where she wants to sit or sleep instead of staying where I put her. She is much more relaxed when I carry her now and doesn’t try and run off when I go to pick her up. She is happy to have her harness on and walks well on a lead. Often when I go into the kitchen a little salt and pepper shadow appears to see if there is any chance of a treat “.

Gabby arrived at DBARC in November 2019 and is now cared for by Carol who is a DBARC Volunteer

Gabby had a major fear of humans, and whilst at DBARC she was given much time, love and reassurance by the team to show her that all humans are not like the ones she encountered during her time at the puppy farm. Gabby also received non specific general care including spay, ear treatment, worming, flea treatments which MAS are pleased to have helped with. We also supplied her with her very own adoption bag comprising essential items.

Update from Carol (DBARC Volunteer) who now cares for Gabby

Gabby has settled back in with my gang, she loves her walks and chats to me when going out the gate, when we wake up in the morning she runs around with the gang telling me get up get up. She has a growl when she talks and then kisses my fingers. When she thinks we are not looking she finds a toy but as soon as she she us looking at her she stops playing with it”.

Meg arrived at DBARC in June 2019 and is fostered by Janet (DBARC Manager)

Meg has a major fear of humans and has therefore been unable to be adopted to date.

Due to the level of this fear Meg requires veterinary sedation to be groomed and receive boosters. MAS funded this procedure at the end of August and is happy to whenever required, to save this girl much stress. Meg also required non specific general care including spay, ear treatment, worming, flea treatments and much love and patience!

Update on Meg from Janet DBARC Manager

“Meg is now happy, very confident (she bosses the collies living with her) and really does enjoy life as long as you do not try to touch her! She will now allow me to go right up to her without running away which is a huge improvement for this little girl. The plan is to go very gently with her. We don’t want to push her and send her backwards, we want her to make the decision that human touch is OK. We are very gently trying to push her towards accepting touch, but it is always her choice to stay or run – we hope one day she will stay and realise a stroke is a good thing”.

Ella (Elsa) arrived at DBARC in December 2019 and was adopted in July 2020

Whilst at DBARC Elsa required cataract surgery and a lump removal which DBARC managed to secure funding for elsewhere.

Elsa was looked after by DBARC for 7 months and we are happy to have helped with her non specific general care including, ear treatment, worming, flea treatments, and also supplied her with her very own adoption bag comprising essential items including Equafleece, harness, lead, collar plus lots more.

Update on Ella from her Adopter Donna

“Ella has been with us for just five months now and has settled in as if she’s been here forever. She’s adapted to our routine of a walk on Dartmoor (right outside our gate) each morning meeting lots of doggy friends, a doze on the sofa until afternoon, and then a second walk, often on a different part of the moor or in woods or fields. She’s had a beach holiday, her first Christmas, and been in the occasional pub! Nothing fazes her, except sudden noises, and she treats everyone as her friend. Her health has been good, apart from having six teeth extracted recently, but she quickly recovered. Eye drops, subsequent to her cataract surgery, are part of our daily routine. There certainly seems nothing wrong with her sight now.

 I am very grateful to all those who contributed to Ella’s rescue and care before she came to me, and especially grateful to be allowed to adopt this dear little soul”.

Poppy (Jelly Belly) arrived at DBARC in January 2020 and was adopted in February 2020

Poppy was looked after by DBARC for 2 months and we are happy to have helped with her general care including spay, ear treatment, worming and flea treatment. MAS also supplied her with her very own adoption bag comprising essential items including Equafleece, harness, lead, collar plus lots more.

Update on Poppy from her adopter Jill

The saddest sight we have witnessed was her routinely sleeping, sat up in her bed with her nose dropping to her front paws, never letting her guard down even when exhausted. Gradually over the months and a series of little wins she has realised that nothing bad is going to happen, and she’s quite happy now to snore, belly up, between us.  After overcoming traffic noise Poppy loves being outdoors, has been on her first camping holiday and has run free on a beach both of which she loved and we loved to see.”

 

Topsy arrived at DBARC in November 2019 and sadly passed away in April 2020

Whilst at DBARC for the second time in her sad life. Topsy needed a dental, many blood tests, ophthalmologist examination, medication and hospitalisation due to HGE.

MAS supplied 20 Adoption Bags which we do so all DBARC Schnauzers get their very own things for the first time in their lives. They contain essential items including an Equafleece coat, harness, lead, collar plus lots more

MAS funded the new Munchkin Manor tiled flooring as the old flooring kept breaking up and was not fit for purpose and staff were spending valuable time trying to repair it.

Oscar

Oscar is a special Therapy dog, whom MAS decided to help as he was an exceptional circumstance. He was suffering with Degenerative Lumbosacral Stenosis amongst other health issues.

MAS funded £5,000 of his life changing operation as if we did not step in when it did his spinal cord would have been damaged to the point of no return. Here he is too scared to move before the operation.

Update

Oscar had his life changing operation last week and is recovering slowly but amazingly well!
