Today got off to a great start with the adoption of a puppy! Java arrived about a month ago at the age of five months. No idea why he was rejected, but he is yet more proof that not all pups are wanted, and that uncontrolled and irresponsible breeding, be it by puppy farmers or by individuals who do not have their animals neutered, is the cause of much misery.
However Java was one of the lucky ones. He caught the eye of a young Belgian couple who have just arrived in the area, and today off he went for what is going to be a wonderful life. Sadly kennel mate Dobby is now alone again. We will find her a new pal, but what she wants, like all our puppies, is a family of her own.
As predicted yesterday, one of the day’s new arrivals found his home. But what was NOT predicted was that the two griffon fauve de Bretagnes who arrived last Tuesday were reclaimed. Their owner was away and unable to collect them earlier. As suspected, they were mother and daughter, with the mother (who was identified) being 15 years old! Even the vet was amazed at what wonderful condition she was in. Now the daughter is identified as well, and both dogs were happy to leave with their loving owner.
Finally many thanks to the Dog School of Trèbes (Trèbes Sport Canin) for their generous donation of food, and also to all the people who loaded volunteer Moira’s car up with 120kg of food and treats to bring back from Scotland. What would we do without all our wonderful supporters? Thank you all!

Dobby is still waiting
