Morning Ian,

Hope all is well at the CAESSR family and looking forward to at least a day of celebration. We are so sorry we live here in North Wales and unable to offer assistance. Fudge Hill would love to help out!!! Fudge is now 6 and loving every minute.

There were no further problems with her eyes so thank you for sorting the eye op out. Mountain Rescue didn't go too far for Fudge not because of her but I had a fall on a high mountain in Morocco and ended up having a spinal fusion but now back to being able to go back in the mountains (with fudge).

Fudge is very loving and extremely well behaved she lightens our lives in these uncertain times. Please keep us in mind if you get any pups in my daughter who helped train Fudge has flown the nest and started a home together with her boyfriend. Anna misses Fudge so much they are desperate to have a Fudge of their own. Enjoy Christmas and stay safe you all do a fantastic job for these beautiful dogs.

All the best from

the Hill family x


Hi Ian and DI

Ted has been with me for a month now and is settling in really well. He's stopped pulling me and is walking well on a short lead and harness when we walk locally - but I have no plans, yet, to take him off his long lead when we do our longer walks. He is an angel at night - sleeping until I make an early morning drink and then he is a delight to get up to. We have our moments though. I think he's checking out boundaries to see just who is boss. He loves the river and is always reluctant to come out.... then it's a test of strength. He brings me comfort and joy and many laughs and smiles. Needless to say I love him to pieces.

I thank you and all of the team for all the hard work you put into the rescue. You make such a positive difference to peoples lives.

Wishing you the best possible Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Best regards

Glenis and Ted


Hiya Ian!
I hope all's well with you all at CAESSR in these very trying times!

I've attached a picture of wonderful Megan adopted from yourselves just over a year ago!

I was delighted ( as Megan was also as she's such a Diva ) that she is adorning a month in your lovely 2021 calendar!

She made herself at home right from the start and still insists on occupying each and every chair that she anticipates her " Mummy " wanting to sit in!!

How she ever managed to survive life in a kennel when her creature comforts are so important to her, I'll never know!

We totally adore her as - hopefully - she does us!

Thank you all for finding this glorious girl for us!

Love to all

Hilary, Mike & Meggy


Hi Di, Ian and John

Just thought you might like an update on the Little Man (Leo) who has become an integral part of the family unit. He has taken over 'the pack' and leads the two labs in a life of riotous playing - they have become like puppies and let him get away with anything - just sit on him if gets a bit too excited - which he does frequently. He has absolutely no fear, except he doesn't like water and going out in the dark on his own. He is very greedy and will eat anything and everything. Fortunately he is so tiny that he cannot reach the worktops but he can jump onto the dining table from a standing start.

He is not good with other dogs when he is on the lead but off the lead he is very good and ignores them. His recall is much better and we are confident in letting him run. He doesn't stop all day, but sleeps all night. You were right about him being vocal!!

Anyway so far so good and we and him are happy.




Hello. I thought you might like an update on Alfie, the golden cocker I adopted in October 2013. He was 6 years old then. He is now 13years and keeping very well. Loves going for walks and playing with his frisby on the greenway. He has been the most lovable and friendly dog, loves people and gets on with other dogs. He has been on holidays to Scotland, Wales and various parts of England. Usually in rented holiday cottages. Great traveller. 

I hope all involved with the rescue have come through this terrible year OK. Lets hope 2021 will be better.

Best wishes to you all at Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Shirley and Alfie


Hi Ian

We adopted Rosie from Caessr in June 2019, and tomorrow she will be 5 years old.

In the year and a half that we have had her she has given us so much pleasure, and gets so much attention when we are out for walks....she is just adorable.

Her tail never stops wagging and she has been the best companion anyone could wish for under these COVID restrictions....well as much as hubby Steve :o)

I have enclosed a couple of photos of Rosie.
