The refuge was buzzing today. After a couple of cool(er) days, we had a glorious day, and volunteers were out in force walking the dogs and playing with the cats. We cannot thank our volunteers enough, seeing all the dogs out enjoying the sunshine brightens up the day.
We have a couple of adoptions to tell you about, too. The first of them took place yesterday, and was of spaniel puppy Skin. He arrived just a couple of weeks ago and we are delighted that he has found a home so quickly. Breton spaniels make great family pets, as well as being lively and inquisitive on walks, they are affectionate and loyal companions. Skin is a lovely lad and we are sure he will be very happy.
Today we saw the departure of Jaja. This little fox terrier cross was brought in towards the end of June by her owner, who had found Jaja two years earlier. She was now moving house and did not think that the move would suit Jaja, who was still very nervous.
Jaja’s time at the refuge has been spent mostly in the company of Bang, and it is thanks to him and to the regular walks given by volunteers Ingrid and Dominique (sponsor mums of Bang and Jaja respectively), that she has gained in confidence as much as she has. Yes, she is still a timid dog, but her new family has a lot of experience with nerous dogs. They are at home all day and have lots of love and patiences so it looks as if Jaja is a very lucky girl!
Let’s hope for yet more good news; the week is not even half way through.
