Dougal + Dustin

Breed: Suffolk Crosses

Fun Fact: They are really vocal till they get fed and like playing tag 

Dougal and Dustin arrived in March 2018 as tiny little lambs rescued from the meat trade. Initially three baby lambs came to us all with health issues as they had been rejected by their mother.  All of them had respiratory infections and Dylan one the lambs, sadly passed away because his infection had turned into pneumonia. Dougal had a bacterial infection in his joints so needed several courses of antibiotics. Dustin was a lot smaller and at a week old was found in the farmer’s barn almost frozen to death. No one was optimistic that Dustin would pull through but after some warming up and some intensive care he has recovered.   Both needed to be bottle fed by staff around the clock until they grew old enough to eat normal food. Dustin loves Dougal so much he has to do everything he does and even falls asleep on him! They are such loveable lambs.
