Today we had two adoptions, one pup and one oldie!
First to leave was Achille a very cute Jack Russel cross. Achille arrived in December and was lucky enough to go right into foster. When in foster we learn lots about a pup and can begin the basics such as housetraining and socialising. Small breed cute pups seldom have a long wait and today he left for his forever home.
It’s never easy fostering a pup. Pups need lots of attention, regular trips outside to toilet and like babies often keep you awake at night! So a big thank you to Achilles foster family whose house will be much quieter tonight!
Next to leave was Polly. Polly arrived as a stray on the 26th December and at nine years old could have had a long wait. Luckily for her, a super family contacted us to ask if we thought that she could live their elderly springer and Labrador cross. We had already determined that she was a lovely sociable lady and so off she went to a loving family where she will be adored for the rest of her life.
We are always so very grateful when families will take on an older dog and give them a second chance at happiness. Without people like that dos like Poly would spend their last years in a concrete kennel and that really is far too grim to contemplate.
We were also very happy to hear that Teasel, an ex SPA dog who went missing after a very exciting fox chase is back home safe and sound. Any of you who have had a dog go missing will realise the panic and fear that owners go through. The best thing to do should your dog go missing is to get the word out there. The more people who are aware the greater chance you have of getting the dog back.
