We reported a week or so ago that following her successful fostering experience of Darby, who is now living very contendedly in Germany, Petra had taken timid Céleste home for some love and socialisation. Well, some fosters work out, others don’t. Céleste is no longer a foster dog….She is an adopted dog! Petra and her family fell head over heels with Céeste, and decided they could not bear to see her part. They adored Darby too, but having seen the photos of Céleste on her arrival, Petra didn’t want this once terrified dog to have any more disruption in her life. We are delighted for Céleste, and although we have lost a foster home, we have gained a dog walker, as Petra will still come along to the SPA to brighten the lives of the dogs.
Looking at the picture of Céleste when she arrived, how can anyone doubt that coming to the SPA was the best thing for this girl? But being adopted is better by far!

The day’s second adoption was that of Tintin. He arrived just ten days ago and today is the earliest he could leave; his pound time is over and he came back from the vet (yes, for THAT!) and straight to his new home. We are sure that this lovely little terrier had a home before arriving at the SPA, but as he was unidentified we were unable to contact his owners. Still, his old family’s loss is his new family’s gain! Tintin has been renamed Bailey and his new life has begun! Please, please, if you love your dog (or cat), make sure they are identified. This gives you the best chance of being reunited with them should you become separated.
Tintin – ADOPTED
If anyone is after a small, young dog and was disappointed to have missed out on Chocolat yesterday, he is back. This boy might be tiny but he has a big character, and needs dog-savvy owners, at least until he settles down and gains some confidence. And today also saw the arrival of a male yorkie who is so underweight that the scales barely reach the 1kg mark. He is is desperate need of some SPA TLC but will be looking for a new home in time. Whoever left this dog at the SPA gates during refuge opening hours is a very strange individual. There is no excuse for starving a dog almost to death and then dumping him.
This tiny boy weighs only 1kg
Although his arrival seems like bad news, of course it isn’t! At least this little dog, whom we have named Highlander, will find a good home. And more good news is due before the week ends!
