harris-2 We love to hear how our adopted dogs are getting on!  Harris’s family sent an email:

 

 

 

 

 

 

A year ago we rehomed Harris so thought we should get in touch with an update.

What a difference a year makes! When we adopted Harris he had been half starved, had little or no training and some clear emotional issues. However with time, patience and a lot of love he has turned into an awesome bundle of joy. He’s not perfect (who is?!?!) but we adore him. He now loves nothing more than heading onto the fells for a run around or playing with his ball, followed by treats and lots of cuddles.

He is a wonderful addition to the family & we’re glad every day that we found him

Buddy – Rehomed

Posted in Animals Rehomed, Branch News and Updates | Comments Off
buddy-lurcher-3 Buddy, who is 16 weeks old and a lurcher, who probably has Saluki, Greyhound and ??? in his make up.  This little boy came to the branch to find a new home due to his previous owner’s ill-health.  He is a typical puppy, up to mischief and longing to play with everyone and everything.

He is doing really well with his house training and now his vaccinations are complete he is finding out all about the big wide world and meeting new dogs in his foster home.
