The lovely Neeka’s case finally reaches court today.
She is already an #exempted #dog in the UK but sadly, her owner fell ill and due to ill health they can no longer care for her.
The good news is that our partner site Putting BSL to Sleep UK on Facebook fundraised to allow Neeka the chance of a new life and along with the help of Tag Rescue, found a new keeper.
A transfer of keepership for an exempted dog is never straightforward and strict criteria must be met of both the current owner and any potential new owner. Please join us in wishing Neeka’s team all the best at court and we will update you, once we have news.

How can we make the world better for dogs? Alexandra Horowitz PhD of the Horowitz Dog Cognition Lab at Barnard College told me, “Let them sniff. Perhaps because we humans are so visually-centered, it's hard for us to imagine what it might be like for our primary sensory ability to be olfaction. But that's how it is for dogs: they sniff first, and ask their eyes to confirm or deny. Their world is made of scents more than sights. As a result, when they agreeably head out with you for a walk, the two of you are experiencing parallel universes: we see what's on the street; the dog smells who's passed by and who is upcoming (on the breeze). Since humans are generally averse to closely smelling things -- in fact, we find the idea of "smelling" one another funny or even rude -- some owners discourage dogs from doing that -- from sniffing one another or the traces other dogs have left. But that is the dog's whole world. I would no more pull my dog away from a street corner he is mightily investigating than I would force my son to stare at his knees as we drive by the Colosseum. Acknowledging the dogs' otherness -- and in this case, his different way of perceiving the world you share -- is a good step toward giving them the life they deserve.” More here: http://www.companionanimalpsychology.com/2017/12/how-to-make-world-better-for-dogs.html #dogs #happydogs #snifferdog #sniffing #canineenrichment #instagramdogs #dog #doglover

We have some fantastic news to share with you and kick off 2018 with!
Today we met with the amazing @londonfirebrigade education representative, David Gill and we are delighted to announce that we will be working with them on their community led schools program.
The workshops will be aimed at 13-14 year olds and our focus will be on #dogs and #dogbite prevention.
Our first workshop with the team is in a couple of weeks time and we will, of course, bring you more news then.
We are thrilled at the opportunity and are delighted to be working with such a respected organisation, to raise awareness on #dog welfare and education. Pictured is David from LFB, Born Innocent team member, Shaila, with Lola the #shihtzu who will be part of the workshops.
A big thank you goes to @tilda_llewie_pia tilda_llewie_pia tilda_llewie_pia for connecting us.
