Darcy Update

A while ago I posted about search and rescue dog, Darcy who was in quarantine after working in Indonesia following the earthquake - despite having had all her necessary inoculations.

Environment Secretary Hilary Benn has agreed to let her out of quarantine for the remaining five months of her sentence on condition that she is kept penned. She’ll be back at her base in Colchester with the Essex Fire Service and will be allowed to work with her handler, John Ball.


  1. Oh that's wonderful news, Teresa. I am so pleased - poor little mite. I'm sure she'll be relieved to be home too.

  2. Great news and some common sense being shown for once.

  3. So pleased! Perhaps all those petitions helped after all. Let's hope Darcy is back home soon.

  4. Thank you - I thought you'd all like to know and thanks to all those who signed the petition xx
