  • Murphy the Collie is doing fantastic in his new foster home. Thanks to Shonagh for all the work she has done with him and for opening both her home and heart to another rescued Collie. Murphy has been on a much needed diet and has been getting out and about everyday, heading to work with Shonagh at Paws4Thot. The handsome chap himself has lost an amazing amount of weight already from 31kg to now being 28.8kg. He is still to reach his target weight but he has been doing brilliant already to lose this much.
