Blaze is looking for home

A beautiful Akita who arrived at Shak with his pal is still looking for a forever home.

Kia was lucky enough to find a foster home fairly quickly, but Blade is still waiting to be rehomed.



He is still living at SHAK and is patiently waiting for his turn to find a new family.

Stephen Wylie, who runs Shak, said: “We are desperately trying to find someone with a bit of experience with Akitas and with no children in the house so that he too can find love again.”

And there is also an update on Penny, who was featured in the Gazette a few weeks ago.

Then Spaniel was found by residents near the charity’s base and was in a poor condition with a huge mammary tumour.

She was due to go to the vets but her procedure was cancelled due to her coming into season.

That also meant that the foster home which was lined up for her fell through due to an unneutered male dog.

Penny is still at the charity’s base, on a farm north of Alnwick, after an overnight stay in another potential foster home also didn’t prove successful.

It is beginning to look like she may never have been in a home before.

And unfortunately Penny will now have to wait several weeks before going through the whole trip again, in the meantime Stephen is trying his best to find somewhere for her to settle.
