Meet Pongo & Paddy

Pongo and Paddy arrived at Jerry Green Dog Rescue through no fault of their own after a sad start to life. Upon arrival, they both desperately needed a grooming session, as their fur had become severely matted, making them so uncomfortable, but that was just the tip of the iceberg. They both had to relearn how to become dogs and needed crucial training to walk on a lead. They were so scared of people, and our team worked tirelessly with them to make them feel comfortable with human touch, which was challenging given their history. As if that wasn't enough, Pongo suffered from a rare parasite infection that was exacerbated by stress, which required costly medication.

 The road to recovery was not without setbacks. Pongo's infection required ongoing treatment, and his progress was slow. But with every small victory, we could see both their confidence and happiness grow. They were a true testament to the power of love and patience, and a reminder that with the right care and attention, any animal can thrive. Today, Pongo and Paddy are happy, healthy dogs. They even managed to find a home within the same family. They soak up all the love and attention they both deserve with their new families.
