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.

Blaze >>
Posted: 16th February 2010

Hello girls!

These pictures were taken by a woman that attends my class at Camperdown park, she was catching all the dogs playing at the end, and caught Blaze in action. He is TOO friendly now and wants to play with EVERYONE! Making up for lost time?!?

Well it seems Blaze may have a new home!
Steve has had German Shepherds for years, and is such a soft touch, he loves nothing better than cuddling up with one - not your average 'German Shepherd guy'. His wife wanted a yorkie, so he hasn't had a big dog around for years, but now the little one is 14 and not able to walk far any longer, he said it is his turn. He just loved Blaze as soon as he met him and Blaze liked his food! I had tears streaming down my face yesterday, as I walked away, thinking of all that we have been through in these last months, what a special dog. I know he needs somewhere more calm than all the comings and goings at our place, and he doesn't really like to share me with the other dogs. But I will always hold a nook of my heart that one!

One last thing. This week I got a call out about a 3 year old german shepherd, Max, who the couple had adopted from a family who said their newborn was allergic. However they had only had the dog 3 months, and she was already pregnant when they took him on? Anyway the new owners took him on, not realising that he has severe people and dog aggression. He has bitten me twice, and Lorraine once, and they are now terrified, after only having him for two weeks. I went to see them on Thursday, and took Blaze with me. I met Max, and the same thing as Blaze originally did, launching up, lots of barking at me. I ignored him and asked for the lead, and he was calmer away from his new owners. When he met Blaze he launched at him barking and snarling, Blaze turned away and looked at me with a ''what's his problem?'' look. Within about 10 mins I had Max calm, and walked them both together, and then into their house. Max went in a huge huff, he was very confused. I was so proud of Blaze, imagine, the dog that was going to be put to sleep, HELPING another aggressive dog!
Anyway, after that Max met us at the park on saturday afternoon, but he was very very stressed out, so I suggested I take him home to work on his trust issues. I really think that he feels he has to look after the world, and his people. He recongnised Blaze again, and that is what helped him get in my van. He too has been fine with the dogs here (avoiding), but he is very very scared of me. I am leaving him too it, eventually he will get hungry and come looking for me!

How are things over with you guys? Hope you are having lots of successful rehomings?

Best Wishes,
Jess and Pack.

Ollie & Polo >>
Posted: 13th February 2010

Hi Ena
Ollie doing really well now. Went back to walking the two dogs seperately so Ollie saw us as pack leaders and not Polo. Ollie walking so well at heel. Now obeys sit,down,stay,heel,drop,come and paw. Took both dogs over to park this morning together. Ollie's first time off leash. He did brilliantly even with other dogs as distraction. Met my brother with Molly and Harvey (could hear Harvey before we could see him! Typical Bassett Hound!) The four of them had a great time. Ollie's retriever skills are amazing.
Has had second obedience class, my wife reports that the other dog owners appear nervous of him but he is so well behaved! Their problem I guess!
Here's a couple of photos I took this morning. He just keeps getting bigger and bigger.
Caroline is planning on dropping in soon to see you with Ollie and Polo. He is also getting less anxious in the car. We have been taking him on very short trips in the car and increasing the time gradually. Sometimes I need to listen to my own advice that I give clients!
Am desperately trying to convince Caroline about your 14 month old lab/rott cross to increase our pack...............................I think she needs a wee "out of the blue" phone call from you....heee heee
Kind regards
Ewan

Well look at them do you think they have settled or do you think we should take them back ha ha. This is what it is all about matching the right people with the right dogs, even when they didn't know they wanted a second dog, but it was a lovely surprise for Audrey & Brian.

Hi Ena

Here are some pictures of the babes together - he is doing just fine. They are getting on really well and he is getting to share her sleeping cushion now.

Speak soon.

Zues >>
Posted: 7th February 2010

Its been a while but I am doing well....getting older but still up to chasing squirrels, cats and barking at the deer. (the bear is asleep now and should probably stay that way if he knows whats good for him grrrr!!)
Wanted to share with you my first experience of getting sprayed by a skunk! First of all I protected everyone in the house and then Susan opened the door to se what all the noise was about and promptly shut it on my face! I tell ya! She then made a lot of fuss about how much I was stinking the place up! Dont know what her deal was, it was me that got it in the chest! Then, to make matters worse I was bathed every single day for 2 weeks! Bit over the top if you ask me, but Susan insisted that I still smelled bad. I had to sleep in the garage for the first week, my bed was thrown away ....finally I got a brand new bed, new collar and was allowed back in the house!!
Well, hope Alfie finds a home soon, he seems like a nice boy. Hope you are both well,
Love Zeus xxx

This was taken about October . He is getting grey around his muzzle but still as handsome as ever! He's my best boy! My other best boy, Kelly, is getting bigger now, he's 9, and Zeus cant push him around as much. Its funny to see them wrestling now that Kelly is getting bigger!
My friend brought her wee puppy around and it was the cutest thing to see Zeus with this puppy. Just had us in stitches, he didnt know what to do with him so he sat on the puppy!!!!
Will send over more pics sometime soon.
Susan x

Hi Susan,

I was so thrilled to get your e-mail and that Zues is still to the fore, loved his wee story about the bear and the skunk hilarious. Would dearly love some pis of him. Lovely to hear from you Susan hope Tommy and the family are fine.
Zues was one of our Rottie boy's who was rehomed here but travelled all the way to Colorado Springs to a new life and boy is he loving it.

Oh wow you look absolutely adorable, can't believe you could ever be naughty with a face like that x

Hi Ena, I thought I would send you some photo's of me in the snow,this is my first experience of snow and I love it.
I'm doing really well, maybe a bit naughty sometimes. I was a good girl but I have started chewing again and my Mummy is not very happy with me,but she knows I'm only a puppy and I think she forgive's me.
I started puppy training and I'm doing really well and I love playing with all the other puppies too.
I hope you like my photo's.
love Luna.x

And this is Sandy with his folks getting ready to go home, he too has such a lovely home with Wendy & Damion. We have known Wendy for a wee while now, thanks to her & Kath another vet nurse who helped our Diesel with the sore ears have the treatment to get his ears sorted. They only came through to bring us goodies that had been collected at Broadley Vets in Stirling and the rest is history.
This is him with his new brother awwwwwww.

Just a quick note to update you on Ollie's progress. Well!! Everybody loves him!
He's a fantastic wee character and has joined our "pack" without any problems.
He's had his 2nd jag now.
Toilet training continues, he seems to have control of his bowels with just the odd wee (wee) accident.
I swear he's going to be bigger than Polo!!
He just loves to play and is a great wee "retriever"
