When Minta first arrived in August this year we assumed that as a beautiful white griffon cross she would be snapped up right away. But we were wrong.
In September she caught the eye of a couple from the Uk who really loved the look of her and were sure that her keen scent hound nose would make her a great candidate for training as a search dog. They were so keen that they flew over to meet her and fell in love instantly.
They went home and emailed us on the Sunday afternoon to reserve her, just as another couple adopted her. I was gutted for them and really disappointed!
Sometimes I think that some things are just meant to be and as soon as I heard that Minta was coming back to the refuge I contacted them, and they reserved her right away. I was very worried that in the meantime they would have adopted another dog but no, Minta had stolen their heart.
So, we prepared her for travel, completed her TRACES documentation and this morning very early Darcey handed her over to the transporters. Many thanks to Darcey for doing this, I know what like it is tossing and turning waiting for the transporters call which is invariably about 4am in the morning!
At the moment she is at Eurotunnel and will be with her new family about 2am tomorrow morning. As well as doing search work Minta will have two brothers, both rescues and a family who are very much into training, so she will never be bored.
I am sure that we will have pictures of her relaxing with her new family soon and I am very grateful to them for making such an effort to fly over come and meet her and offer her such a great future.
