(ed:..what a good thing to do..!..to set this up..
and not only ‘cos usually working-dogs deemed past their working-lives are just shot..)
In the past five years Retired Working Dogs Adoption has rehomed hundreds of huntaways – eye dogs and beardies.
When heading dog Spur was kicked by a cow his working days were definitely over.
His chest was injured and his leg so badly damaged it needed to be removed.
He could well have been put down.
However Spur was given a second chance at life
He was saved by Retired Working Dogs Adoption – an organisation that has found new homes for hundreds of working dogs that are too old – have been injured or just aren’t up to the job.
