Thanks Lankeela and Paula for the updates, it is great news he has found a new family and also a girlfriend to keep him company. WELL DONE and THANK YOU to everyone who has taken the time to care for him. Will have pleasure seeing him go into the BLUE when he has finally gone to his new home. Lots of hugs and cuddles to the famous Charlie. Jan x

Charlie will be off to his new home on Wednesday. He is going live with a lovely couple who are experienced Lancashire Heeler owners and own a Heeler friend for Charlie named Millie.
Charlie isn't moving to far away and will be able to continue his future care under the ophthalmic vet Sue, who has become one of Charlie's fans and Charlie hers.
Lilford Animal Welfare would like to thank all those who have shown outstanding kindness and caring for Charlie's future welfare.
Charlie has had another home visit to his new family today and everything went well, so he should be going to his new home some time next week. Look forward to seeing his name in blue shortly! Thanks to Adele and Paula for all their help, for taking him in and arranging for his veterinary treatment and to all who contributed to the Lancashire Heeler Community Welfare Fund appeal. A wonderful effort and we are very grateful to you all for helping Charlie. Link to LHCWF: Last edited: 2011-02-26 22:13:26 by Lankeela
I believe there has been an enquiry for Charlie from someone with a rescued Heeler bitch, and a home visit has taken place. Fingers crossed this works out.
Just wanted to enquire as to Charlie's progress please. Has a suitable home been found yet?
Thank you - Debbie x

Charlie update
Charlie has been back to the vets this week, pressure in his remaining eye is OK and hemorrhage is cleared. Cornea is scarred from ulcer and he has reduced tears. Charlie is currently on false tears, return vet visit in 2 weeks.
Charlie has no sight in his left eye and any sign of deterioration that points towards Charlie being in pain, his left eye will be removed.

It is now 28days since Charlie's accident, after much publicity no owner has come forward to claim him and we will now start the process of trying to find this loving boy the kind and caring home he so deserves. Home checks will be carried out and rescue back up offered for Charlie.
Thank you again for everyone's kind and caring support for Charlie.
What a fantastic response! The pictures on the heeler website are just lovely! The dogs look fantastic together, what a credit to the carers.
Debbie x
Now up to £540 - aren't people wonderful in times of need for these dogs?
Latest update - £485 raised for Charlie's treatment. Can you help us make it £500? New pictures of Charlie on Lancashire Heeler Community Welfare Fund website: edited: 2011-02-07 22:49:52 by Lankeela

Lilford Animal Welfare can not THANK everyone enough for their kind, caring generosity and thoughtfulness. At a time when things are hard for a lot of people. The concern and generosity for Charlie has been outstanding. In rescue and the news we get to see a lot of the bad side of things, but everyone has shown that the good out there, certainly out number the bad.
Charlie is off to the vets this week and no matter what the outcome as to the decision on Charlie's left eye, I know that this little boy will enjoy life to the full and make the most of it.
Spending life as Charlie's foster mum I can say "that everyone's good wishes and healing thoughts are finding their way to Charlie and working wonders". Charlie truly is a special boy and has not stopped wagging his tail( apart from when i put a coat on him this morning and he was not impressed, guess tough boys like Charlie don't need to wear coats in bad weather) since the day a caring person took the time to stop (unlike the driver) and take Charlie to the vets after his accident.

A BIG THANKYOU from Lilford Animal Welfare and Charlie xxx
Up dated photo of Charlie arriving soon
Thanks to someone from the US the donations have jumped to a massive £465. Thanks to everyone who has helped by publicising this.

Brilliant article about Charlie in Leigh Journal - and donations now up to £335 from the LHCWF.
Now up to £240.
Donations up to £189!
Hi Adele, thank you for your time yesterday. I have put the newsletter up in the kitchen area at work and have donated on the Heeler website. I was so glad to see money coming in to help with the costs. You really are doing fantastic work. Whoever gets to give this little man a forever home is going to be very lucky. x

Lankeela, great to see all the support for little Charlie. I've bumped his page up a few times to help his plight and look forward to seeing him going into the BLUE when he is rehomed. Jan x
Adele, the donations have been made via paypal so will be forwarded on to you.
Pleased to say that £109 has been donated in the first day, we will leave the appeal open till he is rehomed. We have also asked for people to crosspost his details on other forums, websites, facebook pages etc. The more people that know about his plight the better chance we have of getting him the right new home when he is ready.
Just like to thank everyone for the support offered we are a very small rescue (tiny infact) so any help is very much appreciated.

Hi Paula, so glad to hear that he is ok. (I hope that your daughter is getting better too!)
I work in Leigh although I do shift work so it has been usually around lunch time last weekend that I tried to contact you.
I see that they have organised something on the Heeler website so I will pop onto there.
Kindest regards
The Lancashire Heeler Community have launched a special appeal for Charlie:
Trying to make arrangments for our Lancashire Heeler Community website to accept donations to help pay for Charlies treatment. I'll keep you updated.
I posted on DP as the lost female dog belongs to one of my clients, not the same dog.
Charles has seen the vet and has had his left eye stitches out.He will see the vet again in 7-10 days for assessment. He still has no sight in his left eye.

I also noticed the missing LH on Dogspages last night but on the first posting it does say missing dog is female ?? and only missing since 19th Jan 2011, Found dog was found on 13th Jan so before other dog lost.
There is a Lancashire Heeler missing from Wigan, he is 12 years old, details are on Dog Rescue Pages in Lost and Found.

Thanks everyone for your support and well wishes for little Charlie.

Great we have had updates on him, he sound a real character. Lovely to see there are plenty of offers of a new home.
Sending him lots of hugs and cuddles from everyone on DL. Jan x
Charles had his right eye removed last Wednesday (19th Jan) and his left eye (third eyelid) sewn up at the same time. He has done so well with no sight and has an app. with his opthalmic vet tomorrow morning to check his left eye but it is looking likely that the left eye will also need removing but we should know more tomorrow.
This little fella has proved that being blind really isn't the end of his world. He is a lovely little man and has been so brave.
Lankeela thanks for your support as at the end of his treatment (if not claimed) we will be looking for a lovely new home for this special man.

Thats good news Paula, how are his eyes and has he been operated on? Let us know when he is ready for rehoming as we have several people on our books that might be suitable. Lancashire Heeler Community Welfare Fund

Charlie is doing well in foster with my 3, settled well, takes himself off to his bed and is getting used to the layout of our home. Sorry I haven't updated sooner, unfortunately my daughter was taken to hospital Saturday, now home and convalescing with Charlie. Guess who's the easier patient LOL. Charlie has been a star and coped well with husband nipping back and forwards from hospital to care for dogs.
Charlie is in the local paper this week and back at the vets Friday.
Debbie don't know if it's me or Adele you have been trying to contact, if it's Adele best time is evening and if me routine back to normal now, so should be able to get hold of me.
Hi, just wondered if anyone has heard anything about 'Charlie'? I have tried to contact the lady who runs the rescue to try to offer some help but keep missing her.
Thank you Debbie
How lovely it is to see so many people concerned about this little chaps welfare, thank you for keeping me informed. I hope that he is now recovering from his op?
Judy Spooner
Thank you for letting me know about how Charles is getting on. I've passed all of the information you've given to The Lancashire Heeler Club Rescue folks and they are keeping tabs on the lad's progress. I know you've already spoken to Julia who is doing all she can to try and locate his owner in the area. It seems he's well supported with offers to help from all quarters of the Heeler world.
Poster will be put on Lancashire Heeler Community page to help spread the word.Last edited: 2011-01-20 11:36:27 by Lankeela
Thanks Paula for the call and update. Glad he has been seen by the opthalmologist, as you know Heelers do suffer from an eye problem called Lens Luxation which is what this looks like to me, apart from the trauma caused by the accident. Many Heelers have gone on to live good lives without their sight, so lets hope someone comes forward to give this lad a home. His details have been posted on the Lancashire Heeler Community website and if we get any enquries we will pass them on to you. Thanks for all you are doing for 'Charles'.Last edited: 2011-01-19 12:50:03 by Lankeela
Goood Luck for the op.
This looks a useful site in the circumstances:

Named Charles while in our care.
Latest update.
This little boy was transferred from local vets to ophthalmic vet yesterday. On first meeting him Saturday, it looked like most of the damage was to his left eye. It has been found that most of the trauma was to his right eye.
Charles will be having his right eye removed tomorrow (based on the findings of his scan) and there is a strong possibility that his left (which is also severely damaged) may not regain any sight and we can't rule out this having to be removed at this stage.
The little man is coping very well without his sight and is a happy & constantly wagging his little tail All the vets seem to think he will adapt really well to being blind and will still have very good quality of life so we will just carry on doing the very best we can for him.
Thanks for all the kind offers of support.
Hope all is going well with this little chap, and that you can take him in tomorrow. His details have been passed round the Heeler world and we hope he is soon claimed by his owner.

Paula great you have emailed a photo which I've now uploaded. Everyone is doing a fab job trying to find his family. Jan x
Paula Marie
Thanks. Mark was going to give them a ring on Monday. Have been in touch with local breeder who is spreading the word. Have also put him on Local site and a Lancashire Heeler owner has been making enquires. Calls also taken from rescue.
I have just been informed the printers dog went to rainbow bridge some time ago so he isn't theirs. I have also contacted fellow Heeler owners in the area to try and locate his owners.
Details put on various Heeler forums. Lancashire Heeler Community Welfare Fund will be keeping in touch over this dog.

Thanks racheljane and Mark, I've emailed Paula with a contact number for a printers on Railway Road. I did speak to Leigh Cats & Dogs Home earlier today and checked if anyone had reported him missing, they do already have his details but not his breed. Paula is there any chance you could get a photo? Hope his family are found soon. Jan x
The printers at the bottom of Railway Road own a small male Lancashire Heeler. Could it belong to them?
Paula Marie
Thank you.
