When 11 year old Lagoon arrived at the SPA in November our hearts sunk. He was in quite a sorry state, covered in tumors, thin and dirty. You could see from the way that he walked that age hadn’t been kind to him and that he had a few problems with his back legs.
Luckily enough the tumors were just fatty lumps, he scrubbed up well, was ever so grateful for regular meals and as we got to know him we soon realised what a real gent this boy was. With his lovely blue eyes this boy became stunning and the icing on the cake was that he was a really easy boy to walk on the leash too!
Like most older gents he was a bit of a character and made it very clear that he didn’t like cats, in fact didn’t like some dogs…he definitely preferred to choose his own friends.
We hate seeing old doggies at the refuge but we couldn’t find him a foster place. To give him the very best quality of life that we could we built him a little exercise park where hen could potter about and watch the world going by!
This was great for Lagoon but what we really wanted for him was a retirement in a loving family and last week such a family came forward.
After meeting Lagoon they reserved him and today he left. Many, many thanks to this kind family for opening up their home and hearts to this lovely boy!
Next to leave was puppy Lucian. Lucian arrived with his mum Lucy a couple of months ago and as luck would have it she is reserved and will be leaving very shortly!
We have had two arrivals. A female shepherd cross who is one of the lucky ones whose owners were looking for her and who should be leaving later today! The other was a young male Labrador cross who we will have more about soon.
This lucky girl will be leaving…
This chap isnt so lucky..
