Well Sangria’s time at the refuge didn’t last very long; she was adopted today by a super family who had read about her yesterday. They arrived at 14H00, determined to not be pipped at the post, and even had anyone else been there, this family would still have won my vote. They have another dog to show Sangria the ropes, the mother is at home all day, and their sixteen year old daughter has grown up with dogs.
As promised I warned them about Sangria’s man-eating tendencies, but at this stage she was busy licking the face of a four year old boy who was visiting the refuge, so I am not sure how seriously they took me. But they are experienced dog owners and I have no doubt that they will educate this puppy and solve any problems she may have. It is super news for Sangria, and closes a chapter in her life, and a lot of ultimately useless debate on Facebook.
Other than that a couple of dogs were reclaimed, thanks to being identified, and lots of dogs were walked. There were two new arrivals, one lovely girl found in a nearby village, and another “pre-booked” abandonment of a fabulous dog that looks like a wire-haired beagle. Beagles steal my heart every time, and this boy is no exception. He has been renamed Biggles, which suits him much better than his old name (Pippo). He is really laid back and on Monday we are going to find him a dog to share his kennel with. For now we are letting him get used to the smells of the refuge.
Oh, and we were visited by Castro, who used to be known as Ray, a blind Bleu de Gascogne. He was completely unfazed at being back at the refuge and went round making friends with everyone!
So only one adoption, but an excellent one.
Spirits are high!
Hello and goodbye to Sangria
And a visit from Castro
