We are overjoyed to give an update on Slygo the stray terrier that was caught last week.

'Slygo has settled in so well it is hard to believe he only arrived on Monday! He sleeps in the kitchen at night with Muppet, no doubt they reminisce about the old days before AIN first rescued them from a filthy shed outside without bedding or any other comforts and have decided a bed next to the radiator is far better. This morning he greeted me like he had known me all his life and after going into the garden he joined us on the bed with the other dogs and went fast asleep. A little later he came out on his first walk of the day and loved every minute. He loves the company of other dogs and they give him confidence. He has been completely clean in the house, in fact, so far he has been the perfect house guest.' Jackie Dalton from Animals In Need and Slygo's new foster mother.

Steve Byrne GSPCA manager said 'Just over a week ago I spent 2 nights in a field trying to catch what was a very nervous, scared little dog and to here the news from Jackie is fantastic and shows what can be done in the right hands.'

'We love the photo of him all snuggled into the bed with his friend and look forward to future updates.'
