Amazing transformation. How happy does he look? From the scared worried boy to seeing a massive big smile.
CUDDLY DUDLEY you are one lucky boy to be in the care of such a dedicated team.

Sending you all big hugs. ❤️❤️❤️

We have had another busy week but we have really enjoyed seeing our dogs enjoying playtime in the sun, with their new toys and donated dog-safe paddling pool! Where would we be without you, our fabulous “suppawters” 🥰🐶 Your kindness makes it possible for us to be there to help the dogs who really need us, and keeps us going when times get hard.

One of the most rewarding parts of our work is seeing a scared sad dog become a happy playful dog, and this week marks a month since we first met our lovely Cuddly Dudley. His sad face and failing body broke everyone’s hearts, but you all rallied round for him and his sadness is now in the past. His life is happy now and we are so honoured to have been a part of making that happen. We wanted to share with you a “then and now” comparison a month on, so that all of you who sent love, donations, gifts and prayers for Dudley could see in front of your eyes how you have truly helped him leave his past behind and look forward to a bright happy future. This is why we do what we do, no matter how hard it may be at times! Dudley is just one example, one dog, one saved and changed life. Our dogs are all worth it, they deserve the very best and we will continue to give them everything we possibly can.

To everyone who believes in rescue, please keep believing. Rescue saves lives ❤️ THANK YOU xx

CUDDLY DUDLEY our hero boy.

Thanks again to all the dedicated staff at Carla Lane Animals in Need Liverpool doing what you do best.

Dudleys been a brave man today and has been to the vets to be neutered ✂️. Wow what a difference.. he’s now weighing in at 31kg he’s not that skinny 20kg boy anymore! 🐶 The vets have had a good look at his ear whilst he was under but unfortunately the damage is too far gone and his ear should have been treated a long time ago! It is best left alone, it doesn’t cause him discomfort anymore and it adds to his quirks 💙 Dudley will recover this week and then move over to the rehoming block were he will get the training and socialising he very much needs and deserves from the dedicated rescue staff. He is not ready for rehoming right now but we will keep you posted on his progress and post when he is ready for adoption❣️ Whilst Dudley was sulking this afternoon he whispered if any supporters want to surprise him with an indestructible toy for him to wrestle with over the next few days he would be very happy! ❣️

Thanks Georgy I have added a more recent photo (21.03.21) with a first one together. When he has got to what he should be will look at updating the photos. Unfortunately we only have two image boxes. Are you not able to go onto Carla Lane’s fb page? You can see his progress pics and updates on there. He is very popular. ❤️❤️❤️

DUDLEY sure is proof of what Rescue is all about and how much work and dedication goes into a brilliant transformation in such a short time.

CUDLEY DUDLEY is sure going to have so many wanting to have the chance for him to be part of their family. Whoever he ends up with is going to be lucky...............




Dudley is not currently up for rehoming, however we are able to take applications for him.

Dudley arrived with us only a few weeks ago, we are sure you haven’t forgotten the poor emaciated, malnourished stray?

Well, just look at him now! Our handsome, now chunky boy is doing so very well. He has gained over 8kg, he is making friends with all of the staff, having training on the lead and working on some reactivity issues.

This boy has really impressed us and has the most loving personality.

Dudley would like to thank you all for your kind, generous donations towards his care. ❤️

If you would like to send Dudley an Easter treat, please see our Amazon Wishlist below 💛

Thanks Jan for the update ...just had a look at photos of Dudley on Carla Lane's facebook page so I have posted as extra image for those people not on facebook. He looks like a different dog after only one week of being cared for. I am sure he has a great life ahead of him with a happy forever home xxx

20.03.21 UPDATE by Carla Lane Animals in Need Liverpool

We are sure everyone is waiting patiently for an update, so here is the “one week later” news about a very different, “Cuddly” Dudley! ❤️

This time last week, we were all totally horrified at the state of the dog we saw in front of us. Quite literally days from death suffering starvation and dehydration, and so scared he could not be handled safely. He had a very cautious prognosis and we went to bed last Saturday with heavy hearts, praying for a miracle. And it came! We are overjoyed to say that with love, food, medical attention and care, he has made better progress in just a week than we could ever have hoped. Today we see a much happier more comfortable and relaxed dog, who has already begun to trust us enough to make friends with several of our staff, and who has gained over 3kg in just a week. His skin is no longer as tight and shrivelled around his aching bones and he can sit, stand and lie down comfortably without the horrible pain he was experiencing. It is heartbreaking to think about what he has been through and some of the information we have learned about his past more than explains his wariness, but thankfully his neglect is finally over. Seeing him want to be around us and starting to become happy and playful instead of worried and fearful really does make all of the heartache and hard work worthwhile. We really can’t believe we are looking at the same dog, but here he is. Isn’t he just incredible!

We have not only been blown away by Dudley and the strength he has shown, we are equally overwhelmed by the support and kindness that has been shown to him and to us. We know you were as shocked and distressed as we were at what poor Dudley had suffered. Unbelievably, your donations to help him totalled a massive £10,000! We are humbled by such a huge and unexpected show of support for our work for Dudley and dogs like him. The last year has been so hard for everyone but of course we have had to keep going for the dogs who need us the most, and we couldn’t do it without you. Your support helps us to keep helping them, especially the desperate cases like Dudley. Thank you to every single person who has donated so generously, shared our posts and sent good wishes for Dudley. What you have done will help Dudley and many other dogs, and we are extremely grateful.

We will keep you all posted as Dudley moves forward on his journey towards a full recovery. He still has a long way to go but we know he can do it and he has an army behind him! Thank you all again, from us and from our very special boy Dudley xxx
Understand, and apologise if thought was speculating. The main thing is it's lovely to see dear Dudley is going along the right way...hoping he would find the strength to do so with love and care at his own pace and in his own way...keep going this way sweetheart - wishing you the very best of love & luck xLast edited: 2021-03-16 20:34:15 by Carolynl

Today was a big day for Dudley. Following our discussions over the weekend when we made a plan with the vets given the severity of his condition, today Dudley had a full visual assessment. He was understandably still too fearful to allow a full physical examination by our vets, but he held himself together well with the help of his best friend Cathy, who he will allow to examine him if she promises to be careful. So together the vet team managed to get a good look at him and assess his current condition. When he arrived with us on Saturday evening we immediately sent video and photos of him for vet opinion to check if he needed emergency admission. He was assessed as a body score of 1, being the worst possible. By today, with the help of six small nutritious meals a day, he has not only gained 1.25kg in weight but has moved slightly up the body condition scale, and is now approaching the 1-2 body score range. This may sound like minimal progress and it is of course good news which makes us happy for him, but we are saddened and angered by seeing proof that his condition is simply a result of lack of food.

We are aware that there has been some speculation regarding Dudley's ownership and whether he might be a stolen dog. We cannot comment in any detail as we hope you will understand, but we can confirm that we have made contact both with his owner and the relevant authorities. Please may we therefore ask for no further speculation in this regard, as we are dealing with matters appropriately. What is important now is that we focus all of our energy on making sure that Dudley will never want for anything ever again. He is surrounded by love and we know he has so many new friends who he has never met! Your donations and good wishes really do lift our spirits when we are faced with such sad cases and we are sure Dudley can feel all of the healing being sent his way right now.

Another exciting step happened at closing time when he managed to say a friendly hello to the other staff who came to his rescue at the weekend, even managing to take some treats and give a tail wag for them! Little steps make big changes when you have been as scared as Dudley. We are delighted to see the happy boy beginning to emerge from behind those sad eyes, and we hope it means that he is beginning to understand that he is safe and loved.
thanks to role in this poor dog's rescue and the wonderful angel who found him and rescued him. thanks to doglost i learnt he is with Carla Lane rescue in Melling, liverpool - couldnt be in a kinder place. i have, along with many many others sent a donation to help them. for the monsters who let this dog suffer there are so many angels who help victims like him recover be loved and happy again. thankyou to every one of you

Update on renamed DUDLEY ❤️

We knew we had the most loyal animal loving supporters, but you have truly amazed us with the extent of your kindness for our lovely Dudley.

We will provide a full update after his vet assessment tomorrow but we know everyone is desperate to know how Dudley is doing. We thought he’d like you to know that he has already enjoyed plenty of tasty food in small regular portions to help build him up.

He has also begun to train us well, so the hot chicken butties arrive at acceptable intervals! Our work helping Dudley and other dogs in need would not be possible without such amazing supporters and of course our outstanding staff team, who don’t always get - or want - the praise they deserve for their work.

This morning Dudley was still very nervous, but this afternoon he reminded us why our manager Cathy is worth her weight in gold.... JUST LOOK AT THAT TAIL ❤️ we all love you Dudley and now you know you are amongst friends.

Thank you once again to every single person who has been so kind to us and to our newest member of the CLAIN family at his time of need, you have no idea how much it means xxx

He is settling in and his trust is slowly being gained. He couldn’t be in a better place and if all works out and he recovers he will be back to his former glory.

The donations have been phenomenal and so heart warming to see, he has touch so many and there are a lot of people willing him on. Look on the link below for any updates.
There is zero chance he was straying for long.
My heart goes out to this poor lad, I hope he makes a slowly, steadily but full recovery...thankyou to those who saved him and to his foster there a remote chance he could be a long term missing or stolen dog escaped? Would be nice to think there's the possibility he had a loving family and home somewhere before who are still searching for him...
Oh my goodness. Poor boy. He looks so sad and scared too. Hoping he recovers and finds a loving forever home. xxx
