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.

Posted: 18th September 2009

Got such a lovely surprise this morning, Alison came for a visit with Buddy who is now over 12 yrs old, but still a fit boy. He was adopted from us pre kennels, and was only ten months old. I remember Lorne a lovely lass who adores border collies was going to a show and asked if she could take Buddy with her, I was a bit unsure but trusted Lorne and she found Bud this wonderful home with Alison and he never looked back. I remember Aliso calling to say he had just cost er a fortune, and thinking oh dear hemust have chewed furniture, but no he was just so good at agility and fly ball she bought her own equipment and started a club called Barking Buddies. Well he looks absolutely brilliant and I'm sure has many years to enjoy his flyball. It was wonderful to see them both.

Gyp >>
Posted: 13th September 2009

Hi Ena,


Thought I'd drop you a line since it's ages since I've been in touch.


We had a great laugh taking Gyp to a fun agility course earlier this year, it was more like a social club for him, what a big wuss with the weave poles though, he just wasn't having them!!


Recently his health hasn't been too good, he lost his appetite, intermittent vomiting and energy levels went right down, he just wasn't himself at all. We've had quite a few visits to the vet, he had a throat infection but they also ran tests and found his pancreas enzymes were sky high, he's already on a restricted diet so there's little we can do except give him anti-sickness tablets when it strikes, limit his exercise and do our best to stop him eating grass, something he wants to do all the time!


We took him for his booster this week but unfortunately he was ill that day, bad diarrhoea, after speaking further to the vet they are now considering testing his thyroid, perhaps that would explain his lack of appetite and energy and weight gain, he has put on 2kg recently!


It all sounds like doom and gloom but it's not, he is currently snuggling up beside me, enjoying his new favourite sport of 'mouse hunting', the computer mouse that is, he either puts his paw on my hand or nuzzles in with his nose, nudging me, it's really funny!!


I've added a wee pic of my boy, sending you a high 5 ha ha!!


I'll keep you posted with his progress, sending best wishes to you all at Second Chance.


Diane & Gyp xx

Barney >>
Posted: 11th September 2009

Well Barney didn't have to wait too long after Brody, this is him with his " mum & grandad " He is going to have the time of his life as his mum loves going for long walks and even to the woods & the beach.

Dear Ena and Frank
Just a quick note to let you know Barney is settling in well. Have been
for 2 walks in Tentsmuir and whilst he has zoomed about the place at 60
mph he hasn't gone too far from me. Dad is quite taken with him as he
snuggles up with him on the couch in the afternoons.

Brody >>
Posted: 6th September 2009

This is Brody getting ready to go home with his Mum, who has already had a Second Chance girly ( sadly Lucy is on Rainbow Bridge). The family now feel ready to offer a home to another wee soul and have chosen Brody and we know Lucy had such a brilliant home, that Brody will be absolutely fine.

Sonny >>
Posted: 6th September 2009

Here is Sonny already to go home with his Mum and " Sis ". His family came highly recommended from David a chap who already has one of our Shepherd girls and he took on another lad that we were asked to take in, a heart of gold he has. He already had a shepherd which gives him three, just as well or this lovely family wouldn't have had a look in for Sonny.

Shadow >>
Posted: 25th August 2009

Well another sad / happy day at the kennels. This is Shadow going to his new home with Charles and Claire. They have been up to see him now quite a few times and although we were sorry to see him go ( especially Frank ) and I'm sure Harry who comes in every night to walk the dogs will miss his pal as well. Good news is we have chosen the right home for him and hopefully will see him quite a lot.

Roy >>
Posted: 16th August 2009

Hi folks thank you so so much for these pics, he has such a special place in all our hearts here as he really had a horrible start in his wee life. We spent such a lot of time turning him round and now thanks to you he has a brilliant home. I just knew if we got the right people for him and Gayle they would make brilliant pets.It was really hard to let them go mind you.

Hi Ena, hope this e-mail finds you ok.

You will find attached some photos of Roy (I hope). I am not very good at this type of thing.

Hope you like the photos. We think Roy is settling in really well and is a cracking dog. He is soooo pawky!!!!!!

Speak to you soon

Jane Howell

Cassie & Susie >>
Posted: 16th August 2009

This is Agnes & David with Susie who they adopted from here in 2007, sadly Meg who Susie went to stay with has gone to the Bridge.and now they feel ready to offer another Collie a home. Talk about fate, Agnes phoned me on Wednesday to enquire about Gayle of course Gayle has a really good home but I told her about wee 4 month old Cassie and yes the rest is history. Cassie is now safely ensconsed in her new home, we took her down today and if your wondering why the wee one is wearing a buster collar a wee boy threw a brick at her and split her eye so she had to have stitches put in,wee soul. Her Mum and Dad were really devastated at having to part with her but I hope they will rest easy knowing she has such a wonderful home with knowledgeable Border collie people.
