Since it opened in 1999, hundreds of dogs have passed through the kennels doors and have gone on to wonderful new homes and families. On this page you will see some of those lucky dogs in their forever homes, and hear how they've settled in and how they've enriched their new families' lives.

Alfie >>
Posted: 27th November 2011

This is Alfie he came into us as a puppy, who had been found in the pitch black one winters night, the motorist who found him said he nearly ran the wee soul over. Then this lovely family came to see him and fell in love they asked what he was and I said he looks a bit like a Jack Russell but it won't really matter if he grows to Great Dane size you will love him anyway haha ! This is Alfie seven years on and he looks like a smallish Lurcher and they say he's the best and they all love him. Xx

You should have seen him when Frank and myself took him to his new home, we took him out the back where there is lots of grass he loved it he ran and ran he was so happy, he is not a million miles away so I will get to see him. Thanks to all who called offering him a home xx

This is wee Jack with his new mum and dad, what a lovely couple they are and talk about a wee dog choosing his owners. Well Jack certainly did that.He went absolutely crazy when he saw them and he would have been devastated if they didn't like him but they did and he is doing very well. xx

Hi again


The first pic ...
Steven has started building the christmas toys, Bailey must have thought the empty box looked like a comfy place to snooze as when we looked in he was stretched out so we added the cushion for extra comfort!! He must be tired after a full day of walking ( 2nd picture)and the last one is just a pic of Bailey getting cuddles he loves them!! These are the corn fields at the back of the house! Bailey loves to play in them so much so we took him there a few times during the day all through summer! Now the corn is cut he just runs and chases the rabbits!

************
Hahaha wish you could get him a bed and look at the colour of him !!one happy dog, love the one with your folks and your son. thanks for these xx.

Sasha >>
Posted: 17th November 2011

Lorraine makes a point of coming in every year on the date she adopted Sasha 17th November 2006 when Sasha was six years old, how good is that, I wish more people would do this.
So 5yrs ago today Sasha went to her new home about 4pm. To say Lorraine and her daughter were excited is an understatement. We were laughing, Lorraine was saying she thought I wasn't going to let her have Sasha, well she did come for a Shetland collie.!! However, after two weeks of "harrassing" me and coming to get to know her we eventually let her have her beloved dog and I am so pleased I did. Sasha has had the best home ever and is looking really really good, although she has slowed down a bit. Xx

Ben >>
Posted: 16th November 2011

Hi Ena,
Sorry the photos took so long but I lost your email address. Got it from Peter though. As you can see Ben is absolutely fine and enjoying himself as always. He is slowing down ever so slightly and sleeps a lot more than he used to. He needs a wee while in the morning to get going and is a bit stiff til he loosens up but once up and about he is absolutely fine.(A bit like myself!!) Still running and catching his ball as always. I make him eleven this year. I think that's right. He's due his booster this month so he'll not be looking forward to that. He senses the vet when we arrive as he goes into drop down ear mode and slinking behind us as if he was going to the gallows. He's just so wise !!!
Hope Frank and yourself are keeping well. Cath is working tonight so I'm on walkies duty. Ben lets me know when it's time and starts huffing and puffing and sighing if I'm late. I'm sure if he had a watch he'd be looking at it and rolling his eyes. Talking of which !!!!!
Bye for now Ena
Angus.

************
Angus thank you so much for pics, Ben looks great the air up on Skye must be agreeing with him, I can hardly believe he is nearly 11 now xx

Ruby >>
Posted: 16th November 2011

Well this wee girl hadn't to wait long for her new home, she came in on Sunday, a couple arrived on Monday looking for a dog and hey ho fell in love with Ruby, so Frank took her to the vets on Tuesday and today we took her out to her home. Really lovely family. This wee girl's story was, she had been in the Edinburgh Cat & Dog home for three months, then she was rehomed unfortunately this home didn't work out for her, don't know why as she is a brilliant wee dog only 9 months old now.. However we have just told her the rest of her life starts from here on in, as you can see they are overjoyed at having her join their family xx

Poppy & Susie >>
Posted: 14th November 2011

Big breakthrough! If a furry cube isn't too stuffed Susie can scramble up all by herself. She's managed this about 5 times so far. When she wants down she just slides down onto all 4 feet.

**********
One of "our" wee girls Poppy with her two brothers waiting patiently for roast beef, the wee tiny girl Susie is not daft she is up sitting on her Mum's knee. It is just so good to see these wee ones settled down in a house after all they have been through xx xx

This is the reason I could never have separated these two wee girls, they just love curling up together.
Thanks for the pic Lorraine so pleased they have settled in so well with your boys Fergus and Duncan. X x

Buddy >>
Posted: 14th November 2011

This is Buddy with his mum Jackie, it was so so lovely to see them today. He came in with his six brothers and sisters in September 1999. Sadly we noticed Buddy had a wee problem I.e: he was always being sick so to cut a long story short he had to have an esophagus operation at the Dick veterinary hospital, when he was only about 10 weeks old. I used to do a dog in the leader Jack Sneddon was the editor then a lovely man, we did a story about Buddy and he ran it then we did a thank you for Buddy to all the people who had sent donations and get well cards for him, some of you may well remember Buddy, Jack put it on the front page of the Leader I remember Jackie ( his mum ) and myself went to collect him after his op we took this big soft bed for what we thought would be a very sick puppy only 11 weeks old., not him he would have jumped all over the place if he had been allowed.So here he is over 12 years down the line with his mum who adores him. He hasn't seem me for a long time but he remembered me bless him. Have enclosed some pics of him just after his op, if you look carefully at the one with the hairbrush, you will see the extent of the cut he had it was right over his shoulder and under his wee leg.Buddy never looked back and he is such a well loved lad. If I remember rightly either one or the two of Jackie's girls were allergic to dogs, Jackie just made sure there were not a lot of hairs or dust from his coat lying around. The girls also think Buddy is brilliant just like Frank and myself. Jackie can we just say thank you for looking after " Our " special boy for all those years and I hope you have many more happy years together.

This is Buddy as a wee puppy, the one with him lying on his bed , if you look really close you can just see the scar where he had his op. From his shoulder right under his tummy. Just look at him now a very distinguished older gentleman, who we all love xx.




Love Ena & Frank xx
