Okay, I was a bit mean last night and left you all on the edge of your seats regarding today’s BIG adoption. So without further ado, the lucky boy was KAWA! He has been with us for 17 months, and has seen several of his kennel mates find new homes. His current (or rather now “ex”) kennel mate was Axel, who arrived as a very bouncy overgrown and ill-mannered puppy, and although it is not something that every dog is capable of, Kawa has been patient and tolerant with him, put him in his place when required and generally made Axel a much nicer dog.
But today was Kawa’s turn, and we wish him well.
He was not the only dog to leave today. We had no fewer than five adoptions in total. Yes, five. It has been a while since I have been able to say that.
Thanks to Doglinks, Blanca found a fabulous home. A couple of dog lovers saw an appeal for this deaf little girl and drove all the way from Rheims to collect her. It was love love love and the huge round trip was worthwhile.
Lovely Georgette, who was abandoned a few weeks ago was adopted by a family who have had their eye on her ever since she arrived. They met her for the first time today, and the adoption was mutual. Happy smiles all round.
Furio found a home, leaving both his sponsor, Audrey in tears, as well as Bond, who is alone yet again.
Then the little puppy, Elena, whose brother Stefan left yesterday found a home of her own. So she didn’t have long to wait after all.
As ever it was not all fun and games. Two new dogs arrived, a lovely beauceron called Pit who is identified, but whose owners are untraceable so far. And just before we closed a Brittany spaniel was brought in, supposedly having been found at the station. How many hunt dogs are found in the centre of town? In any case, this five year old boy has been named Bonnet Red in honour of his Breton roots and believe me he is far better off with us than he was before.
So a good day and another one to come, I promise!
