Hi, I am Tamsin and I have lived here at Assisi since 2007. I arrived as a very frightened little baby with my brother and sister. They came round well but I am still not very keen on people. I have ‘small airway disease’ which means I can get short of breath sometimes. The staff have to keep a close eye on me incase I need my medication. Sponsor Tamsin for just £3 a month to help us continue to care for her.

Koda is now reserved  This handsome fella is Koda. Koda is a Husky X and he is approximately 2 years old. Koda is a very friendly boy who is eager to please and loves cuddles.  He would suit a very active family with no young children as he loves to go on walks to explore but he can get a little over excited and bouncy.  Koda will require a family that will set firm boundaries for him.
