There were no adoptions yesterday, but we made up for it today, with the departure of two lucky dogs. As the region (and in fact most of the country) suffers in scorching temperatures, it is wonderful to think of these two somewhere nice and cool and enjoying being out of the heat of the refuge.
Princess arrived at the refuge in early June and has proved to be a fabulous girl. Initially she was very nervous around people, but has made enormous progress thanks to the staff and volunteers and also the dog with whom she shared her kennel. A family visited her a couple of days ago and soon fell under her charms. There is still some work to do, but Princess will have plenty of dogs with whom to socialise. This and a normal home environment wiht lots of love and patience is the best way to help dogs settle in, and Princess has a fabulous life ahead of her.
We also said goodbye to Nappo. He was one of two magnificent German shepherds who were brought in about two weeks ago due to a divorce. The female, Miki, was adopted very quickly, and we are glad that Nappo didn’t have too long to wait either. With a CV like his (good with cats, other dogs and children), you can see why his new family is so delighted to have adopted this young dog today.
There is one more day left this week and we are hoping for some more adoptions, of course.
