We have two adoptions to tell you about today. Both dogs are a bit timid, and it is lovely to think of both of them happily homed and able to gain confidence in their new homes.
First off Mojito. This one year old border collie arrived just before new year, and wherever he had been before coming to the SPA can’t have been much fun. He was terrified of people and spent several days inside as he hated all the noise of the refuge. Dogs like this can really tug at your heartstrings, and Mojito was no exception. As well as being sponsored by volunteer Marjorie and adored by staff and volunteers, Mojito became the favourite of volunteer Léa. She was determined to show him that he had nothing to fear, and set about walking him and helping him rediscover the world.
Of course this would be far easier if Mojito were not at the SPA. So guess what? Yes, Léa and her family adopted him! So we will have lots of new and photos of this lovely lad.
Next up we have Sno. This lovely lad (who looks like a small lurcher) was found as a stray by employee Marion, and she and her family spent some 2 months trying to coax him towards their house. During this time he proved himself to be good with cats, other dogs, chickens and goats. It broke their hearts to bring him to the SPA, but it was the best thing that could have happened, as less than 2 weeks later Sno is off to his new home. Where there are also chickens, cats and goats!
So good news today, and hopefully more tomorrow.
