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.

Hi Ena

Sorry I've taken so long to send you some photos of Ben.

He's doing great, lost lots of weight and started his agility training now he seems really keen as well which is great.

Will pop in soon for a visit so you can see the new slim-line boy.

Hope you like the pics

Love Jackie Brego, Ben xx

Hiya our roving reporter Mhairi has been out and about again. The first picture is of Kia and Megan both dogs adopted from here which is how we got to know Mhairi.

This is Tilly in the pics with her mum and her brothers and of course Kia & Megan.

Tilly was brought to us by the SSPCA along with her partner, Leo and their six puppies. All have found wonderful homes.Tilly stays with her MUm & brothers in a very rural location. The phonto's are taken just outside her garden, lucky thing.

Hi Ena

Here are the photo's I promised I would send. Sorry it took longer than I thought. As you can see from the photo's Jake lives the life of luxury(he even thinks my bed is now his). He is doing really well and Lennox loves having him about to play with. They have their little argument's every now and again but that's no different from my 2 human sons LOL. He loves going to the beach and anytime he goes out he loves to carry HUGE sticks about with him as you can see.

Hope all is well with everyone. Tell Mhairi I will bring him along to see her soon(you should see a big improvement in him now, I hope). I came in one day before xmas but there was a note on door saying you were away doing home visits.

See you all soon

Take Care

Jimmy & Jess >>
Posted: 19th January 2008

Hello Ena

Thought I'd drop you a line to let you know that Jimmy and Jess are
getting on really really well as you can see from the photographs.
They play together all the time. Jimmy is settling in to his new home
just fine. He is such a little character. He doesn't get off the lead
yet but that doesn't stop him running about mad.

Last weekend, after his morning run about, Jimmy made a bid for
freedom from the back of the car! What a fright I got. Luckily, after
chasing him for half a mile, I managed to get him back, wee rascal.
All going well, we think he'll be able to get off the lead in 2012!!!

Anyway, we love him to bits and he has brought a lot of joy to Jess
again. It's off to the vets this week for another adventure! Jimmy
still hasn't worked out the parrot yet and this is a great source of
amusement for him!

All is well.

Bye for now

Jimmy Jess Shona and Tom (and the parrot)

Hello Auntie Ena,
Just a quick note to let you know I'm fine after my little "nip and tuck" last week. Today I was allowed off my lead for the first time since the op........and boy did I make the most of it and ran around as much as I could.
Next week some fella called Paul is coming to show Dad a few things. He has illusions about me and Hailey doing the obedience thing......we'll see about that!!.
I've instructed Dad to take some pictures and send them to you so you can see how hard I'm working at keeping everyone here happy.
Love Tyler and Hailey. XXX

Posted: 15th January 2008

Hi Ena and all at Second Chance,

I thought I would get in touch to let you know how the" boys " are doing.
I cant believe that it is 6 years this month since we collected the two bundles of joy from you.Our lives were turned upside down but in a great way. Murphy and Brodie are lovely dogs and never fail to make us laugh with some of their antics and they totally rule the household.We love them to bits and they love us too.
They are in contact with their sisters Poppy and Holly and all four still act like puppies when they are together.
Thankyou Second Chance for allowing them to be part of our lives.

Lynne

P.S here are a couple of photos the other dog is Rocco Murphy and Brodies "uncle" who sadly died last year.

Lidia & Derek with Nana on the right and their new boy, Any dogs who go to stay with this lovely couple are so lucky and have a home for life. They sadly " lost" Dylek back in September but Lidia is sure he is watching and giving the new lad some pointers as he does some of the same things as Dylek.

Hi everyone I hope you all had a great time over Christmas and New Year

I had a super time Santa brought me lots of things (though I am still trying to figure out how he got in and I never heard him)

I have sent you some pictures of me and my friends on holiday at New Year, we were away at cottages and it was great. Morar was there with Auntie Anne and Uncle Billy and so was Blue with my human brother and sister

My mum and dad say I get more handsome everyday and dafter unfortunately.

It was great we got lots of walks and they had a coal fire, it snowed and we built snowmen, I did not like them at first but soon got used to them (picture attached)

We had a coal fire and it was great after my walk I would come back an chill in front of it, I miss it now we are home and don't have one.

It is nearly a year I have been in my forever home and I have loved every minute of it and mum and dad have loved having me. I am doing a wee bit of agility, not a lot cos I need to let my bones fully develop but it is quite good fun though dad says I have the attention span of a gnat!!!!! I am only a puppy after all a big puppy but still a baby.

I have only experienced one problem in my forever home that is that I think I am a collie and insist on sitting on visitors knees I always manage it much to their surprise.

Best wishes to everyone and I hope this year is a happy one for you and all the dogs who find themselves with you to find their forever homes.

Love and Kisses

Sabe

Bryn & Bailey >>
Posted: 8th January 2008

Hello all,

Well it has been a bit of a challenge the last week and a half with wee Bailey joining our home. He is a good wee soul and it breaks my heart to think he was a stray for so long. He definitely had collar and lead issues when he arrived and Bryn, as you know, had issues with having another male in the house stealing mum's attention, but alas, after a bit of patience and a lot of time together, the boys have settled in nicely.

I have to say while it has been hard work the benefits far outweigh the work. Bailey has seen how well Bryn goes on the lead and has followed suit and so now they both sit at the front door waiting for their leads to go on so we can go for our daily walks. They both lay down in the kitchen and politely wait for their meals and Bailey has learned to sit and give a paw for a biscuit. Bryn's issues of slight bullying were quickly rectified with the tips your dog behavourist, Paul, gave me. Seeing the two of them curled up on the sofa together now is absolutely brilliant and wee Bailey wags his tail now when I say good boy. It took about 3 days for that to happen as he clearly was not used to the words 'good boy'. He follows Bryn around like a little brother following a big brother - very sweet. Bryn gets up in the morning and where he used to give me lots of cuddles he now runs to the lounge to see Bailey with his tail wagging a mile a minute and Bailey returns the gesture. Bailey is also very clever as I got him toilet trained in about 3 days and he now sleeps in his crate at night for a solid 8 hours (bliss for mum). All this in less then two weeks - who could ask for more!?!

Here are two photos of the boys. Napping on the sofa together and playing 'tug of war' with mr lion.

Hope your all well.

Cheers,
Lynda and the boys! x
