Update from Jokers new family: We fostered Joker & then adopted him. We live in Palmerston North. I came across him on Petsonthenet because 2 stray Doves turned up in our garden. I was looking for a lost notice!! lol . It was a no brainer to offer to foster him. I thought we could teach our kids about helping without having to "own". But you know - he settled here do fast - we just knew we couldnt break his heart & send him on his way again. I think he was meant to be here. Everything fell into place so quickly. Thanks for profiling him - hes a wonderful boy.
THANKS to Errol Johnson, S Thackham, Melissa Hall, Y Johansen & E Shchepets, Liz Anderson, R Dibley and of course the wonderful "anonymous" folks for their fantastic generosity. Thanks to you all Joker has had all the good food and medicine he needed and is well on his way to a new life. Special mention of Alan Wilson of RNZSPCA in Auckland for his very kind and welcomed contribution.

Joker is now a different dog. He is chubby and cheerful and full of life. When the 'before' pics were taken on Friday 7th September he weighed 20kg, was weak, depressed, dehydrated with inflamed skin and itchy with mange. He was starved almost to death. Today on Tuesday 18th September Joker weighs 30.4kg, his mange is under control and improving and he is such a happy boy. He has arrived at his foster home and loving the attention and TLC.

Heartfelt thanks to all who have sent messages of support and donated for Joker. Joker now has a wonderful foster home (via petsonthenet) to go to. THANKS to Karen and her family. And to Bounce, Vanessa and Cherie who also offered to foster Joker. And to KIm & Anne, of course, as well as Joker's rescuer and carer for the last 10 days, you know who you are!
