Well, here’s something that doesn’t happen nearly often enough! A lovely man came to the refuge to look for a very particular dog. Kiko had been abandoned at the SPA three weeks ago by this gentleman’s neighbour (usual story, border collie, too active/intelligent for its owner). However Kiko had been a good pal to this man’t children, and when he found out that this beautiful dog had been dumped at the SPA, he came to adopt him. So his children have their playmate back, and Kiko has the home that he probably always wanted!
Another departure today was that of Bonn, who caught the eye of a family who were not put off by her long ears. In fact they, like our good friends at Animal Trust, are Belgian, so do not have the French anti-chasse dog prejudice and are more inclined to go on the character of the dog. And Bonn is a gem of a dog.
On the subject of long ears, my golden girl, Sveltesse has gone to a foster home that we hope will become permanent. And there is another reservation, but I will save news of that for another day! Don’t want too much good news all at once!
Bonn “Who me? Long ears? Never!”
