Dodger was rescued on 15th May 2020, he had obviously been living rough for some time, and had been fed for the last few days by a kind neighbour who reported him to AAR. Dodger is a 5 years old male dog - small to medium size, very wary of people at the moment, but doesn't seem phased by other dogs. Dodger was taken to the vet for general check-up - his skin was in very bad condition and obviously he is ill with few injuries on his body - not life threatening for sure. Then Dodger had a good bath and a shave.

Dodger moved to the kennels where he received all the care and attention he needs to recover from his illness and injuries as well as to get proper and decent home-cooked meals with the medication prescribed by the vet. He had his own warm bed and a place to sleep now in a secure and safe environment where no harm can get to him. Few days later Dodger had started to come out of his kennel for walks in the big garden to stretch his weak legs and get some exercises. Sometimes other dogs join him in the garden too for social interaction. Slowly Dodger gets the urge to play with them and being better at integrating with his friends.

His overall health is good and his skin is much better, the fur has grown back soft and he looks very handsome now. And he has such a great appetite and he eats well and he loves his treats very much as they are his favourite. However he is still nervous when people approach him especially if he doesn't know them because of his past experiences, but he has improved a lot already with his socialising and house training too! And this will get better in time as he meets more people and understand that no one will ever hurt him again!

Dodger has moved to his new Foster Home where he will enjoy family life and play with his foster brother & sister and get new experiences which will improve on his social skills overall!! Dodger is very happy in his foster home and has settled well with the family and his step brother and sister. Also Dodger is now fully vaccinated now and microchiped & passport. His health has progressed well and he looks well. He is also neutered now.
With his foster parents, Dodger now goes out on small trips to the village to socialise with the local people, and the local dogs and cats. Dodger seems unphased by any other animals or humans and he takes it in his stride. He is such a gentle boy. He plays well with his foster brother and sister.

So if you want to Adopt Dodger, you can email AAR at and his caseworker will get in touch with you.
Don't forget he is waiting here to hear from you. AAR & Dodger want to thank everyone who worked so hard to rescue him and donated to AAR for his care.
