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.

Tank in his new home xx >>
Posted: 11th August 2014

Received this update on Tank today, he has certainly made himself right at home. Thanks foir the update and the photo's. xx
Hi Ena
Tank's doing really well and has settled right in. It feels like we've had him forever. Here's a few photos.
He was at the vet's last week as he picked up a nasty tummy bug somewhere but a course of antibiotics has sorted him out. Obviously, he charmed everybody at the practice and they all loved him ❤️ He's been enjoying poached chicken and rice instead of dog food for his sensitive tum - not sure if I'll be able to convince him to go back!
I've been doing some training with him, he's mastered sit and stay but he looks totally confused when I try and get him to give me a paw 😄
As you can see from the last pic, we've bought him a wee car harness so he's comfortable when we're going out and about. He spent yesterday's jaunt to Linlithgow lying with his head in Noah's lap 😊
Thanks
Renee x

Lily ( was Fern here ) xx >>
Posted: 3rd August 2014

Our lovely wee Fern went to her lovely new home yesterday, tears all round, as we had her for longer than the rest of our dogs and spent a lot of time socialising her, Wee Alfie helped her tremedously so much so I have a wee video of her, how she was with us, but if anyone she didn't know came in she would hide in corners ect. However she is going to be such a well loved wee lass, bet next time I see her she will be so outgoing, I do hope so anyway, here she is with her "mum and sis" xx
Below is the story and photo's Sue sent to let us see how well wee Lily was settling in,bless her. thanks Sue xx
Hi Frank and Ena,
Just to give you an update on how Lily is getting on. She is being very brave and we are taking small steps but they are all forward ones!! The other dogs who are with us at the moment are being so gentle with her - it's as if they know .... She has a few beds around the house already but she has chosen her favourite - under the coffee table in the lounge so we have made it into a den and she loves it - like camping inside!! But tonight she came out and decided to sleep on the huge bed right in the middle of the lounge - that was a good moment for us all!! Today she has been out for an hours walkies in the forest with the other dogs and she loved it - stopping to listen to the birds and smell all the forest smells - she was running around with the other dogs and loved rolling in the grass. She is eating well and loves ham!! She woke up crying at 2am this morning so I went through and cuddled her and gave her some food and she fell back to sleep again. She follows us everywhere and when we let the dogs out for wees this eveing she followed us out into the garden and walked around with us which is great. She still isn't quite sure where she should wee but she'll start copying the other dogs soon and will blossom. She is gorgeous.

Looking forward to you visiting us soon xxx

Love Sue, Joe and Beth Forrester, Wee Lily Forrester and all the four-legged babies here in Balmullo xxxx

Sue, Joe and Beth we are so so happy for this wee lass, she has certainly enjoying her life with you guys, thank you so much xx.

Blue & Sky xx >>
Posted: 2nd August 2014

Hi Ena and Frank

As promised, have attached some photos of our gorgeous girls! It's difficult to get them both together and standing still! They are settling in so well, it really is unbelievable how much they are opening up their individual personalities now. They are off the lead now and are great with other dogs. We took them to the beach yesterday and they adored the water! Blue was leaping in from the bank without any hesitation; Sky was a little more sedate! Both are great little swimmers. Sky is very much the 'mother' whereas Blue is a bit of the 'tom-boy' but they get on so well with each other. They love sniffing and running around together. They are going in on Tuesday to get spayed - not something we are looking forward to but it is a necessity. They have both certainly done their 'bit' with regard to having puppies and it is their time to be free. They love going out in the car; Blue falls asleep straight away on the back seat while Sky sits and drives - until that is she too falls asleep! They are just an absolute joy and we both love them to bits!

Hope all is well with you both.

Kindest regards

Alison and Reta.

Thank you so very much for the update on your girls, how settled do they look and it hasn't taken them long to get used to the good life, xx

Baxter xx >>
Posted: 25th July 2014

How lovely to hear from you Baxter and your right, we did have a wee soft spot as you were a very misunderstood wee lad till you found Liz and Steve, all you needed was lots of love and people who would understand you. Love the photo's xx

Hi all,

I’ve not written for a while so I thought I’d touch base and let you know how I am. I know Ena will be wanting to know. We had a wee soft spot for each other.

Well I’m doing just fine. I go for long walks and with this hot weather I like going paddling in the local burn. Megan swims but I like to just paddle. It doesn’t take much for me to get out of my depth what with my wee short hairy legs.

I’ve got lots of toys to play with but I’ve got a new game of hide and seek which I like very much. I hide under the throw and bark. Then Liz or Steve give me a fright and tickle me through the throw. I always jump but love them doing it.

You can see me under the throw in the attached photo. I’m the lump in the middle.

I also cool down on the kitchen floor tiles - see my back legs. I bet you can’t do that Ha! Ha!

I’ve made lots of new doggy pals. There is Jack and Dexter (both from Second Chance) and Jack the Schnauzer. Gregor and Jess both adopted whippets, Mirren the Rotti, Bess the Lasapsu, Finn the springer spaniel and the newest pal is Bonnie a 18 week old springer spaniel.

Liz says I’m a right wee charmer with the ladies (human and animal alike)

I hope you are all well.

Lots of bow wow love

Wee Baxter

Posted: 20th July 2014

Wee Jack brought his folks Donna & Andy for a visit, it was great to see them and the wee boy minded where the sausages were lol. This wee lad certainly landed on all four paws when he went to live with them as he wasn't the easiest of wee boys but they love him what more can I say xx
