Listen Danny. A Heart Warming Tale

We have had some lovely news regarding Listen Danny. This lad was shy beyond belief when he went off to his forever home in late 2020. But with the help of his 3 adopted Sisters, two of whom have sadly crossed the bridge and the love and understanding of his family his cheeky little personality has come shining through.
Here is what they say about him.
“The study is no longer a hiding place but a storage space for our shoes when we so carelessly leave them under the hall table or on the shoe rack. Millie has been giving him instruction on how to play with toys and it is a pleasure to see them tossing them about together. They are also enjoying a chase in the garden despite the weather (Millie not quite so old and crocked as she was billed!!) What is really lovely is the face at the window accompanied by loud squeaking as we come home and the frequent coming to us for fuss, particularly ear rubs”.
What a lovely story.
Thank you to Danny’s family, it’s not always plain sailing when the dogs go to their forever homes, some take longer than others to settle but they have given Danny the time he needed to truly be himself.

Oh Hurricane

It may be a rainy, miserable day today but nothing could dampen Higgins (Oh Hurricane) spirits on this, his going home day.
He was so excited to see his family when they came to collect him. He has come to know them quite well because they have visited him a few times.
He went with much love from us all, some chunks of beef from his Auntie Linda and his packed lunch.
Good luck Higgy Wiggy we hope to see you again soon.xx

Happy Jack

Happy news for happy Jack (Dillymore Jack), he went home today with lots of love from us all and a tear or two from his beloved Auntie Linda.

Bubbly Blaze

We have had heart warming news from Bubbly Blaze. Here is what his family have sent us.
So proud of Blaze 🙂 (aka Wag-a-Leg! asks for fusses!).
He has been through a lot for a little greyhound boy 🙁
Over a year ago he fell ill with a very nasty bug. Messed his tummy badly.
Then, whilst continuing a long recovery, two months ago he had a massive stroke and was at first terrified at the time as he couldn’t find his legs or see out of his right eye!
It was a difficult time as Blaze was confused and distant and very wobbly.
However he was so good as he soon learned to to walk better, easing off the circling left (better vision!) and even listening as to when to step down each step without falling.
Such a brave trouper! Now bounces along happily on his walks
Tum troubles unfortunately returned due the stroke, but meds helping recover and his appetite is huge! 🙂
This pic is ‘is my dinner ready?’
He has three meals a day and knows exactly when haha!
Just love him 🙂

Well done Blaze, what a brave little Soldier xx

Dudley Goes Home

We wish Dudley all the very best and have sent him on his way with so much love.xx

Borwick Dasher

We have had news of Dash (Borwick Dasher) who we homed last year. He is so enjoying his retirement .Here is what his adoring family say about him.

“He really has been the perfect addiction to our family, and couldn’t imagine life without him.
Although a quiet boy, he is so bouncy and playful!He loves his country side walks, playing with his numerous toys that have taken over the house 🤣 and especially loves crashing out in the evenings for a family movie!
Everyone has loved him that’s met him, he’s so inviting to new people, even when we have taken him to vet appointments love him, but that’s because he’s a flirt and they pamper him 🤣
I can’t recommend re-homing a greyhound more to people! They are so loving and caring dogs, that truly make a house a home.”What a lovely outcome for Dasher. We remember him well at kennels for his love of food and big cuddles”.

Whizzy Bling

We have had news of Whizzy Bling. Whizzy Bling is now called Bet and has really been living life to the full since moving to Bolton. Here is what her adoring family say about her.
“Since coming home we have renamed her Bet. She knows her name and calmly comes back when she is called.Bet loves her daily walks around the local parks and is often stopped by other dog walkers as they admirer her.
Bet has a busy life in Bolton playing with her new best mate poppy in the garden and often sharing a bed together. Grandchildren love to visit Bet and play for hours in the garden.
Bet enjoyed her recent trip to London taking in the sights and the sounds. In the 5 days we had in London we walked a total of 52 miles! Both poppy and Bet slept soundly at nights (as did we). Luckily the weather was wonderful and spent the time exploring London on foot. Seeing Buckingham Palace, The London Eye, Kensington Palace, Hyde Park and the changing of the guard.
With the country seemingly coming out of the Covid pandemic a new year trip to the lake district has been booked. Lots of walk, treats , pubs and sleep.Bet has been perfect and couldn’t have asked for a more perfect dog”
What lovely news, enjoy the Lake District Bet.

News of Drumalee Teddy

We have had news of Teddy (Drumalee Teddy). This is what his adoring family have to say about him.
” We truly could not love him more. He is just the most perfect dog. He’s properly settled in now – he absolutely adores zoomies (especially with his favourite soft toy), enjoys his walkies (he is now off the lead very happily!) and loves lots of cuddles, kisses and treats.
We’ve taken him on lots of adventures and everyone says how beautiful he is everywhere we go! He’s such a happy boy, so loving and playful, and we couldn’t imagine life without him.”Lovely news bless him.
