It’s been over eight months since “Rosey” was brought in to us in an horrific state, one of the worst conditions an animal has been brought in to the rescue with. Little to no hair left, over grown nails, eye and ear infections, mouldy skin, tumour’s…..the list goes on.
As you can see Rosey has come a long way and it’s been a painstakingly slow progress, she recently she had 20 teeth out and that’s the last of her surgeries for now. She had six tumours removed so it’s a possibility that some may return or new ones will appear and will need removing. A lot of her hair has grown back but it’s doubtful that all of it will ever grow back fully, but she looks so much better.
She will be on medication for the rest of her life, for now Apoquel tablets for her skin and Labrella injections for her arthritis. She has been through the mill and then been through it again but she is as tough as old boots and has bounced back each time faster than a dog half her age. Shes has been on school trips, the beach, our charity shop in Tralee and she has her very own harem of cats to keep her company at night.
We have a lot of old dogs constantly needing treatment and if you would like to help with their treatments then you can donate here. Donate
Any donation will help these ‘golden oldies’.
Hi, im Abbie and im 12 years of age, living in County Kerry. I love all dogs and have wanted my very own puppy for a long time and this is my adoption story.
After many months of begging, pleading and bribing my parents to get me a puppy they finally said “YES”. We looked at a lot of websites and shelters when eventually we found a litter of puppies that had been brought into Sera Huskey, we had to make sure that they were the right breed because we already have another dog at home.
2nd May 2020
A few weeks had gone by and it was time to see the puppies. My dad and uncle went to Sera Huskey to see the puppies. Maurice from Sera Huskey then said that my dad could bring me and my sister in to pick one of the puppies another day. I was so excited.

So the Saturday arrived when it was time to see the pup. After lunch we all hopped into the car and went to Lisselton to see the puppies. I loved all of them but one of them really caught my eye, he was black and brown and really sweet. Sadly we had to leave a little while later but when we got home at dinner that evening, my dad told me that someone would be coming the first or second week in June around my birthday, to bring the puppy home. I was so happy, my dream was coming true.

Today I went around asking everyone for a good name and a lot of people agreed with BOOTS because his tiny paws were brown so he looked like he had boots on. I also thought that it went well with the name of our family dog “LOLA”.
1st June 2020
Today my Dad and I fixed up a new outside pen for Boots, so that he would be safe if i was busy or didn’t have time to play with him or bring him indoors. We fixed up a corner in the back with a bed and shelter from the rain.

My mom came home after work today and sat me down and told me that BOOTS was being dropped off tomorrow. Luckily we had gone to Pet Mania in the morning and bought a new lead, a dog bed and some new bowls.
9th June 2020
The day finally arrived. Boots was brought to my house at 2pm today. I couldn’t contain my excitement. I took Boots from my my mom and started to cuddle him straight away. He is so adorable. I introduced him to our dog Lola and Boots was very excited to see another dog. Lola was a bit unsure. After Maurice had finished explaining all about the pup, he left to re-home more dogs and BOOTS was mine. I spent the day playing with Boots, and after he was so tired he slept for hours.
This is a little bat,one of my favorite animals,he was brought to our vets this morning,i was in visiting Goldie,it was attached to a fly screen,these little things are so fragile trying to peel its wings off the sticky fly paper was a job,i got both wings off intact and then gave it a bath which again is no easy thing to do,ive since given him another bath and if he survives he’ll probably need another,that stuff is awful and trying to clean tracing paper wings is the one of the trickiest things my shovel like hands have had to do in a long time,hes been under gentle heat lamp and likes hes glucose drink so fingers crossed he(we’ve named him Bruce) will pull through and he can get back to his bat cave
ABBEY: before and after, we found her in Tralee with severe sarcoptic mange, a skin disease caused by parasitic mites and occasionally communicable to humans. It is characterized by severe itching, hair loss, and the formation of scabs and lesions. This painful condition can be prevented by regular grooming, brushing and baths.
