This is the story of ‘Britain’s Unluckiest Dog’, which starts in 2016 when Zen arrived at the Trindledown centre in Berkshire.

Zen had previously been living with a local family, but sadly they had to say goodbye to him because their young child developed an allergy to this delightful dog.

However, it was soon clear that Zen was going through some stress, when it was discovered by the animal care team that he was eating his way through the pen doors and walls (which are made of wood in the Berkshire centre).

Many of you will remember Bernie’s story from our Christmas Challenge appeal last year. He had been at NAWT for a year, gradually learning to trust people again after a lifetime of neglect.

During his first year in rescue, your donations transformed his future. You gave him the time and understanding that he so desperately needed to cure his deep mistrust of people. You provided the training that would change his mind-set and subsequently transform his future!

Sadly, some dogs arrive at NAWT after traumatic experiences with very cruel people. One of those unlucky pooches is Smith, who was treated so poorly in the past.

The animal care team in Cornwall will never forget when Smith arrived at the centre. He came from a local dog warden and was in a terrible state, completely starving and very scared to step outside into the big wide world again, as his experience of it so far, was a horrific one.

Grace, a young wiry-haired Jack Russel Terrier, arrived at NAWT in severe shock and terrible pain following a nasty attack from another dog. She was covered with several bite marks and puncture wounds, with the most severe one opening up her entire back from shoulder to shoulder.

Grace required emergency surgery if she was going to survive the attack and was immediately rushed to the vet. Thankfully, the vet was able to perform lifesaving surgery, which left her with many battle scars but a whole life ahead of her to enjoy.

Cherry was only 9 months old when she arrived at NAWT. A miniature Chihuahua crossed with a Yorkshire Terrier, she was a tiny little thing and super cute.

However, young Cherry had a problem; she was heavily pregnant with four extremely large puppies, in comparison to her size. There was absolutely no way Cherry or the puppies were going to survive the full pregnancy; it would have killed all five of them. Unfortunately, Cherry’s pregnancy had to be terminated in order to save at least one life.

Five-year-old Bulldog Minnie had been subjected to a lifetime of breeding litters as a money-making machine, before her owner took her to the vet with a leg complaint. After discovering how much it would cost to cure Minnie’s condition, her owner instructed the vet to put Minnie to sleep and left her there.

Shocked by the extreme decision to destroy an otherwise healthy young Bulldog, the vet got in touch with NAWT to see if anything could be done to save this beautiful girl’s life and cure her painful condition.

Robin arrived at NAWT earlier this year, when he and his three littermates were dumped outside the gate of our HULA centre and left to fend for themselves.

The animal care team made the distressing discovery of four incredibly sick puppies when they arrived to work that morning. It was clear to see all four puppies were fighting for their lives, and battling something very serious. An urgent vet check confirmed everyone’s worst fears; every puppy had parvovirus and they were so sick, there was a very big chance they may all die overnight.

Before she arrived at NAWT, Lulu was found wandering the streets, abandoned and alone in an awful condition.

An initial welfare assessment raised concerns about her matted fur, incredibly sore skin and a terrible flea infestation. There was no choice but to remove all the hair on her body so that her skin could be efficiently treated. At this stage, it also became clear that Lulu had mammary tumours that would need removing.
