    We've just rehomed a beautiful dog from the RSPCA in Southridge, he's an elderly darling (about 9 years old) who has recently had a large lump removed from his knee, which was a sarcoma.

    We brought him home with us today, which was an unexpected joy - we thought he'd be there much longer as he had to be kept in while his leg healed a little more. But we've been sent home with antibiotics and something to bathe his leg with. :)

    Here are some pictures of him, at home and in the park next door - which was also a wonderful surprise, we hadn't actually explored it till today.

    So exciting that he's worn himself out :D

    He seems to already been settling in really well, doesn't seem fazed at all. And, thankfully, appears to have no interest in the rats! (Not that he could get to them if he did)

    He looks like a super dog and I hope you have many years together. Well done for offering him a home I am sure he will repay you over and over again with kindness, love and loyalty. :smile:
