The refuge was closed today so I thought that I would share some super updates from very happy adopters.
Who remembers Sanders, the scared boy who looked very like a labradoodle? Well here is what is new mum has to say ‘ Sanders (usually called Sandy) has been with us for just over two months but it seems like he’s always been part of the family. He settled in right away making himself very much at home. He is our second rescue dog and just like our previous one we have made the right choice. Big as he is he is soft and affectionate, loves company, keeps us fit doing around 30 miles a week over our river valley and woods and is generally well behaved – although he can have selective hearing if distracted by a pesky squirrel! He certainly attracts attention and comments wherever we go with his size and colour. Everyone wants to know about him and what breed he is, I feel a DNA profile coming on!’
Then we had one from Eve’s ( ex Maggies) new mum ‘Eve has settled in so well, can’t believe we only collected her from you a week ago! Our morning walks tend to be before 7 am so we are able to have some off-lead time, she doesn’t go far ahead and returns when I call her to go on her lead. She’s a very good guard dog, by that I mean she’s noisy when anyone comes to the house, or even just walks by the house! As long as she stops barking when I tell her, which she does, that suits me. Alice and her are fed at the same time and we’ve moved on from Keith supervising Eve and me with Alice while they eat to putting their dishes a little apart and me in between them. They often drink from the one water dish at the same time so they seem very comfortable with each other now. She is so pleased to see us when we come into the house, Luca’s face lights up when he comes in from school and she makes a real fuss of him…and vice versa. She’s so affectionate and playful, it’s lovely. She’s a fantastic girl.’
And last but not least the handsome Mitch ‘I can’t thank you enough for Mitch , he has changed my life . He is so gorgeous and we love our daily walks and he and I are both getting fitter, he and my boy cat are really close and sleep together! My girl cat is still undecided ……picture to follow!
We have also had happy updates from Dingo, Shadow, Melba and Jess to name but a few!
When times are tough and numbers are alarmingly high it news like that that keeps us motivated. We never tire of news about our ex Spa doggies so please feel free to send updates anytime!
