Meet Cherry

Cherry came into care with her one day old pups having been picked up in a paddock by the ranger. She showed no interest in being loved or cared for and did not even wag her tail. After 5 days we managed to see the frost was beginning to thaw and she came to me for some love and since then she haven't looked back. She had such severe ear blockage in both ears due to neglect and we thought that she may be permanently deaf but luckily for Cherry our vet has been able to clear the ears and she can now hear and is a normal healthy little girl. She only comes up to mid-calf (30cms to her shoulder height) and she has a slightly feathery coat and is a wonderful chest-nutty colour. Her pups have been rehomed so she is ready to go to a family wanting a contented, lovely sweet nature dog to adore.
