Most of you will remember our excitement a month or so ago when our long timer Kaiser was adopted and will also remember our devastation when he was returned a week later because he chased their cat. Of course we had explained that he wasn’t good with cats but the family were confident that they could cope with this even although they did have a kitten. So you can imagine our frustration when he was returned a week later!
Maybe this was meant to be because he was no sooner back when a super couple came to meet Kaiser and reserved him on the spot. They understood that he didn’t like cats but as they don’t either it was a match made in heaven. They have spent time enclosing their garden and today Kaiser has left the refuge forever!
This calm sociable boy was a favourite with lots of the volunteers and despite his size was a dream to take for a walk. He happily shared his kennel with many dogs and seemed resigned when they were adopted whilst he remained behind bars but his patience has paid off and he at last has his well-deserved happy ever after.
There were two more adoptions to follow, Sacripan and Star.We were never quite sure what breed Sacripan was, maybe a bit of border collie with a bit of spaniel in there too but one thing that we are sure of is that he is a handsome, friendly boy with the most amazing big paws! Star is a 6 month old Shepherd cross who arrived at the refuge on Christmas eve with his ‘brother’ Trek. He is lucky not to be spending his adolescence in kennels and I hope that Trek will be adopted soon as well.
For all you lovers of small dogs, 4 of yesterday’s 7 arrivals are small and very, very cute. The owner of these poor dogs has died and with no family who can care for them they were brought to the SPA. Neige and Colette are youngsters whilst Tim and Charly are 10 and 11 respectively. For small breed dogs this is not old and they are all in great condition so I am sure will be snapped up very quickly. This is just as well as these poor dogs must be confused and bewildered to find themselves at the SPA after having a loving owner to care for them.
Our lovely volunteer Anne Marie has returned to France after a year in the UK and today was her first day back at the refuge. In-between the showers she managed to walk Chiquet, Swiffer and Mabrouk so I hope that she isn’t too tired tonight!
Kaiser leaves at last!
Star Adopted too!
Neige is 2 and needs a new home
Colette is only 5 and needs a home
Charly is 10 and needs a home
And Tim is 11
