Today volunteer Dominique was busy again, This time she was driving Kalou and Daisie to Limoges airport where they were collected by their new owners.
Kalou was one of the wolf litter who were brought into the refuge with their mum after having been mistreated by their owner. Mum left quickly, adopted by someone who knew her before she was brought to the refuge. There were six pups, three white and three black. Guess who were adopted first? Kalou left today to live with Jennie who adopted Atlas from us about a year ago. We know Jennie well and know what a super life this lucky boy is going to have!
This leaves two girls, Lilou and Lou. They are lovely pups who have had lots of socialisation from the volunteers. They are now walking on leads and gaining confidence every day! We would love these girls to find a home soon. The refuge is no place for a pup to grow up so please, if you are considering an addition to your family, think about Lilou or Lou!
Daisie is a tiny podenco who arrived at the refuge in a terrible state. She was skin and bones but even worse she had a pellet wound which meant that she needed to have a leg amputated. During her recovery, we got to know this tiny, sweet natured girl well and I am delighted to say that she has gone to a lady who has lots and lots of experience in podencos.
Kalou and Daisie were our happy goodbyes but we also have a very sad one.
Elaine, the lovely lady who adopted Vixen last August had to say her final goodbyes today. Vixen arrived at the refuge when she was about 13 years old and went into foster with Martine. Here she stayed until Elaine was back in France and we could arrange travel. Vixen had 9 very happy months with Elaine who I know will breaking her heart tonight! Thank you Elaine for making the last 9 months of Vixens life so wonderful!
Kalou and Daisie are adopted!
