Amber arrived at the refuge mid August with two gentlemen who claimed to have found her. We suspected that they were her family and for some reason couldn’t keep her but it didn’t really matter as she was such a darling of a dog that we knew that she would soon be adopted.
She settled quickly into kennel life and proved to be a very easy sweet natured girl who got on with everyone. Once she has settled, off she went to the vets to be identified and sterilised so that when the perfect family arrived she would be ready to leave.
Today, that’s just what happened. A couple who saw Ambers details on the Les Amis d’Animaux group had lost their old doggy a few months ago were desperate to have a dog in the household again. Their remit was female, not too old and medium sized so Amber ticked all of these boxes. The wanted a medium sized dog as they travel a lot with their motor home and wanted their new family member to be able to join them on their travels!
After speaking to me yesterday morning they left in their motor home for the long drive over to Carcassonne to meet her. They were very keen and very sure that Amber was the doggy for them so I knew they would be delighted when they met this young lady and after very successful introductions off she went with them today in their camper van….be happy Amber…you have really fallen on all four paws!
John Wayne or JW was also adopted. This 6 year old cutie arrived at the refuge less than two weeks ago after being found in the woods. Some dogs just have all the luck and he was one of them. He was very lucky to have such a short wait!
Its funny how some adopters will move heaven and earth to come and get the dog of their dreams whist for others an hour in the car seems too much to anticipate. We do realise that everyone’s circumstances are different and if you genuinely want a specific dog then just ask us for help. We can get dogs anywhere in France and throughout Europe too.
Many thanks to everyone who shares our details in their various groups, Ambers story just shows how much social media does help in rehoming our dogs!
Don’t forget to follow this weeks blog. I wont be doggy walking this week but will be very busy preparing a LOT of doggies for travel!
