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.

This is Nicko back for a visit, he has such a lovely home but doesn't really want to be back, well he doesn't know it's just for a visit to introduce him to his new friend Heather who is going to stay with his gran & grandad (see above).

P.S. We all want to go and stay at Nicko's, he was very overweight when he left, but he is now very trim!!

Gyp (was Chase) >>
Posted: 29th December 2006

This is Gyp (was Chase). We are so thrilled for his family, that he has passed his first "exam" because, although they love him to bits, he hasn't been the easiest of dogs. Here is what his Mum says:


Hi Ena,

Gyp did it, he passed his exam for the Bronze Good Citizen Award by the Kennel Club.

I'M SO PROUD!!!!!!

He has thrived on the challenge and we intend on joining the Silver class starting in March next year.

I've attached a photo taken from the Alpha Dog Training website of Gyp receiving his certificate.

Have a brilliant Xmas and New Year, we hope to bring Gyp to see you for a visit soon.

Diane & Gyp xx

Hamish >>
Posted: 20th December 2006

Hi folks just a quick note to let you know Hamish has settled in here very nicely indeed and really has become part of the family, loves playing with the kids and going for long walks though he doesnt like the rain too much so not much walking done this week.

Here's a few wee picks of Hamish, he is an absolute gem no problems whatsoever......... well apart from the buckets, not sure what happened there but he definitely doesn't like them. He is such a happy playful wee thing I am so glad we managed to get him, i'll try to bring him up to see you soon. Thanks again for your help and keep up the good work.

Jim

Alfie (was Scamp) >>
Posted: 20th December 2006

GOING HOME FOR CHRISTMAS
________________________________________


This wee lad had been abandoned because he had a tumour on his jaw, which the vets kindly removed but it left him with hardly any lower jaw. However he has come on really well and his good samaritan came along in the form of Arlene Mair, who is now his new mum! She fell in love with him whenever she saw him.

So, Alfie (new name) now shares his home with two Yorkies, two Lhasas and a miniature Schnauzer (all girlies) who absolutely adore him! His mum is having to buy a king size bed to accommodate everyone!!

We are so so pleased for this young man because if any dog deserved a home for Santa coming he is the one.

Hi and Merry Christmas to all at second chance. As you could see Ranger is all ready for Christmas and has his stocking under the tree. I'll try to bring him to visit at some point but until then have a great holiday and all the best to you all.

Love from,
Ranger, Freda and family

Woody (was Bruno) >>
Posted: 20th December 2006

This is Woody's with his new mum Lillian and here is what she says about him:

Hello

Hope your well; I can see youre busy with new arrivals.

We have renamed Bruno, Woody, which he seems to like.

He has settled in really well. Sleeps all night and is clean, but still having the odd accident during the day, which to be fair is more our fault than his, as we need to watch him more.

Matilda just adores him, they roll around the floor for hours, and shes never slept so well. She also loves to throw his soft toy for him, which he loves. She also tells him off. She tells him No, down and can just about say his name.

He loves his walks and gets very excited when hes out, especial when he meets other dogs.

Bollinger the cat is still keeping her distance but she is getting braver by the day. He has also met my sisters Irish Terrier; I think they will be best buddies.

Woody is an absolute joy and has fitted into our family as if hes always been there. He really does bring so much joy and fun. Hes got the most wonderful nature and I really cant understand why he didnt get on in his other homes.

Thank so much for choosing us as his new family and we will keep you up to date.

Best wishes

Lilian, Richard & Matilda x

Hi all,

Just reporting in to let you know how my new Mum and Dad are doing.

Well, we got home alright but it was miles! I had time for a sleep before we got there but it was worth the wait. We went for a walk in the late afternoon, just before it got too dark and Gemma and Honey came too. Sam (he's the black Lab from next door) came as well and we all got on fine. Dad threw a rope thing and we chased it - I kept falling over cos I was on a lead - and the Labs brought it back for Dad to throw again and again and again. I was exhausted. After that we went to see the horses in the stables. They're a lot bigger than me but friendly.

Mum went to Tesco in the evening and I jumped up onto Dads lap and settled down, he's really quite nice.

At bedtime I was allowed to sleep in the bedroom and I was very good. I stayed off the bed and slept the whole night through.

We went for another walk this morning and I saw loads of trees, I'll have to drink more if we go that way again. I didn't see any deer but I was told they were there. I was off the lead this time and it was great cos I could chase the Labs or go sniffing about in the undergrowth. I didn't go very far from Mum and Dad and kept a close eye on them all the time. I ran to them when they called me. I really enjoyed myself out there in the wide open spaces.

I can't believe that I've only been hear less than 24 hours - I've done so much, seen so much and met ever so many animals. In fact it's so good I think I'll stay!

Thanks for looking after me until I found my new home. You were super.

Jack

PS I don't have my own armchair here but I share the sofa with Mum and Gemma.

Jack
