Today saw the adoption of the very handsome Vegas. This large five year old was a very distinguished looking boy and we are delighted that he has left for his forever home.
Vegas was left at the refuge gates in June, was adopted in September, came back and left today with who we hope will be his forever family.
Why do some dogs come back? Well there are lots and lots of reasons. Sometimes people don’t realise that taking on a rescue dog is no different than taking on a pup…they need time, patience and your presence. Sometimes even although they are fine with the existing family dog at the refuge, things are very different in the home and sometimes owners find that their expectations are far from reality.
Whatever problems you may have when you get a dog home please remember that you are not alone. Simply call us for a chat and if we can’t advise, we have dog trainers and behaviourists on hand that can.
Of course we also have a few arrivals..
For you German Shepherd lovers we have a one year old male and female who are very friendly and are bound to attract lots of attention.
We also have a little wire haired Jack Russel female and like all small cute females she will be quickly snapped up if not reclaimed.
Tomorrow we will have at least one adoption and to a family who have adopted from us before. We love when families come back to us for a second dog, it restores our faith in what we do and our faith in human beings!
