Harefield Gazette - - ANIMAL NEWS -

YOU can rely on The May­hew An­i­mal Home to have a full pro­gramme of ex­cit­ing events in the lead up to Christ­mas and this year is no ex­cep­tion. Mind you, in or­der to help an­i­mals such as Flower, they need them.

Can you be­lieve this York­shire ter­rier was found aban­doned on the streets? What must peo­ple have thought who came across her run­ning about with no owner?

Af­ter they took her in, the cen­tre made a won­der­ful video of her run­ning, in the wind, on the Scrubs – the pic­ture of a happy dog. Flower is af­fec­tion­ate and sen­si­tive. She builds strong bonds with peo­ple she trusts and loves to climb onto laps for a cud­dle.

She would pre­fer to be the only dog in the home. She has lux­at­ing patel­las so po­ten­tial own­ers will need to speak to The May­hew about this.

Cur­rently Flower is in a fos­ter home but if you are in­ter­ested in adopt­ing her, see details at the­may­hew.org or call 020 8962 8000.
