Today I am going to continue with our series of posts telling you all about the doggies we have had the fortune to have known over the years. We really love German Shepherds, or Alsatians, here at Jammy Toast – mostly because they are so loving and intelligent. They make great guard dogs but are also friendly towards the rest of their pack – human, bear or otherwise. The first German Shepherd we ever had was a character by the name of Max. Just like his owner, Max was a little special and had a few social problems. These problems usually manifested themselves in his desire to kill anyone he met. Other dogs we have known have been a little more sociable

Did I mention, Max was also a bit of a vandal?

Over the years we have had the fortune to have known many doggie friends. So, starting today, I thought I would share some of our doggie stories with you because we really have had some characters over the years. We really love German Shepherds here at Jammy Toast, mostly because they are so loving and intelligent. They make great guard dogs but are also so friendly to the rest of their pack – human, bear or otherwise. The first German Shepherd we ever had was a character by the name of Max. Max was a bit special and I mean that in all senses and connotations of the word.

We love dogs here at Jammy Toast and have a soft spot for German Shepherds in particular. So this weekend we were especially moved by the story of one German Shepherd cross by the name of Floyd. Floyd has spent most of his 10 years living in an animal shelter but has finally found a new home. He was the longest-staying resident at Freshfields Animal Rescue in Liverpool but has now moved in with one of the shelter’s dog walkers. For years, Floyd found interacting with people very stressful after a traumatic start to his life, Freshfields said. But the charity said Floyd was now “safe and happy” in his new home.

X-Ray showing a Microchip in place.

Yesterday we posted the story of the dog who came back from war to live with his handler and I think everyone oohed and aahed over what a lovely, heart-wrenching story it was. So today, the first anniversary of compulsory microchipping for dogs, why are there so many dogs still unchipped? Hundreds of local dog owners are still breaking the law one year on from the introduction of the act. Figures released to mark today’s anniversary of the implementation of the scheme reveal 80,000 people in the North West are still flouting the rules.

We received an e-mail the other day from the UK Government. Here at Jammy Toast we are not usually in the habit of receiving messages from the government but this e-mail was concerning Finn the Police Dog. We signed the online petition calling for police animals to be given the same status as officers if they are injured at work and the e-mail was to tell us that this will now be debated in Parliament. The Finn’s Law campaign is named after the Hertfordshire police dog who, along with his handler, was stabbed in Stevenage while chasing a suspect. Finn’s Law wants people who attack police animals to face charges similar to those for attacking a person. It will now be debated on 14th November after topping 100,000 signatures in a month.
