You will be pleased to know that the really cold snap seems to be over for the time being, but we are still hoping to get as many of our dogs as possible into new homes. Because “home” is the right place for a dog, not a concrete kennel at the SPA!
Moira mentioned that puppy Olaff was left behind after all his siblings had been adopted. Well, after finding a home yesterday, he is sadly back today, as the family’s cats simply did not want a dog in their house and made his life a misery. So he sharing his (indoor) kennel with little Prosper, another lovely youngster who has finished his pound time and is now waiting for a new home too.
In other puppy news, Isa has been fostering little Malko for the past three weeks, and although he is in a warm home, he needs a family of his own! Isa tell us that he is a great little lad, who will grow to be quite a big boy. Lively and cheeky, just as a pup should be!
Better news for pups Chairo and Salsa, both of whom were adopted yesterday. And good news too for today’s new arrival, Malou. His owners phoned the SPA and were relieved to hear that he was there. They were surprised that they had not been contacted, as Malou was microchipped. Except he wasn’t any more! Yes, believe it or not chips can pop out, especially when young pups are involved, so it is worth checking this every time your dog visits the vet.
Onto the adults now! And we have three dogs to tell you about.
First to leave was Roucky, the 12 year old spaniel who came to the SPA when his owner had to move into an old people’s home. Such cases are tragic, as neither the owner nor the poor dog is not to blame. Luckily Marie-Ange lived up to her name yet again and has taken this lovely old dog into long term foster.
Then we had two adoptions, starting with Neige, a lovely lab/griffon cross who arrived relatively recently and is now going to have a wonderful life with a canine friend and lots of horses! This sounds perfect for her. And then Liquorice (now renamed Gru) left with his new family after less than three weeks at the SPA.
So all in all a pretty good day.
Prosper needs a home too
As does Malko
Malou – reclaimed
12 year old Roucky has found a long term foster
Neige – ADOPTED
Liquorice (now Gru) – ADOPTED
