A disabled twelve week old puppy is in our care

Ruth Searle is raising money for animals in need through the animal characters in her books. We’re looking for the ‘Face’ of the Great Dane in Ruth Searle’s thriller ‘NO PLACE TO HIDE’ her first in the series.

In partnership with charities SHUA Trust and Sanctuary – Safe Homes for Unwanted Animals and NGDR – National Great Dane Rescue – we’re running competitions to find the ‘Face’ of each animal character. In return for a donation directly to each charity, your beloved companion can become a superstar and feature in the book.

In late May, National Great Dane Rescue were contacted by Pumpkin and Friends, a charity for disabled animals, asking if we would be able to help and take on a disabled twelve week old black Great Dane puppy. The disability takes the form of loss of use of the rear and front legs and is believed to have been the result of accidentally being rolled on by the pups mum. After a transfer of ownership the puppy came into our care.
