Derek was our miracle boy, who survived a terrible illness against all odds, and went on to find his perfect forever home.

Derek was rescued from the pound in 2014, a Shar Pei cross who was described to be like a bank manager with his serious nature. He was a lovely boy, very affectionate to humans, and just wanted to be loved. In October 2014, it was discovered that he had leishmania and his kidneys were failing. He was on deaths door, and at one point there seemed no hope. There was an outpouring of love from his followers and well wishers on facebook, and just when it seemed all was lost, he made some small improvements and to everyone’s surprise he pulled through.

In April 2015 Derek had a visitor, who fell in love with him and suddenly everything fell in to place for him to go to his forever home. Derek is now called Benson and is loving his new life with Sheila in the West Midlands. Well done to Benson for being a survivor and waiting so long to meet Sheila. We hope you have a very happy life together.
