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 us getting ready to go home,our folks are so delighted with us and we have a knee each how good is that. It's great that we have been kept together too. We would both like to thank auntie Sandra (Dapper Dogs ) who comes along and grooms any dog who needs it.She's a wee star Ena & Frank say.So must go we've been promised a lovely walk. Love Judy and Daisy xx.

Day 1 with our new Mum & Dad! After a good night sleep, where we slept in their own beds with no hassle at all. We got out about 8am, afterwards we bounded upstairs and ensconced themselves on Mum's bed. We almost licked her to death. DAd made tea & toast and brought it upstairs. Laying it on his bedside table, he went looking for the newspaper. Two minutes later he returned and asked where his toast had gone! I was good, but One look at Daisy, and they knew..... She'd scoffed the lot! What a hungry Horace she is! Later on were taken to get fitted for our harnesses. We were very well behaved in the car, but Daisy brought the walls down with her barking in the pet shop. There were a lot of big dogs, who weren't even looking at her, but she was probably nervous. Home for tea, and probably a walk with the new harnesses before bed. So far, so good! We're really happy and just love our garden! Will keep you posted Aunty Ena & Uncle Frank. Licks & Kisses. Xxx
Linda thank you so much for the update. XX For Judy & Daisy, who sound like their having fun !!

Posted: 9th July 2014

Hi folks I never reached the website,well I wasn't supposed to, Ena and Frank were meant to be adopting me,even wee Alfie liked me.

Then Ena got a very sad phone call on Monday morning wee Susie the tiny Yorkie has gone to Rainbow Bridge, Mandy and Jim adopted Susie when she was about 11yrs old, she was such a needy wee soul but she got everything she needed and more with this lovely couple. Sadly they only had her for about two years but what a wonderful two years it was for Susie.They are heartbroken at her passing, RIP Susie xx

They can't stand the house without a wee four legged friend.So now its my turn to be spoiled. I will have a wonderful life and stay near the beach now. Love Honey ( my new name ) xxx

Charlie xx >>
Posted: 29th June 2014

Hi there,
Just wanted to update you on Charlie, I adopted him roughly 2002/3 and he's been with me and Becks (our other k9 companion) ever since. He's still a lively lad despite his advancing years and we live in Northern Ireland now, with the beach on our door step. He loves nothing more than swimming and sunbathing as you can see from his photos.
He is one of the best things in my life and I love him very much.
Thanks to Second Chance Kennels for uniting us.
Sharon, Charlie and Becks xxx
Talk about a blast from the past this wee lad was adopted from us on 20/10/2003 he was only 12 weeks old. Hehas grown into quite a big handsome lad x

It's so lovely of his mum getting in touch to update especially as she is across the Irish sea now, with her " boys " thank you Sharon it means a lot xx

Blue & Timmy xx >>
Posted: 21st June 2014

Hi Ena,
Thought you'd like this picture of Blue, showing all of his 13 1/2 years of age after he won 4th prize in the local riding festival's senior section of the dog show - not bad for an old croc! Hi young brother Timmy has improved considerably and now has his own circle of energetic doggy friends to play, climb and swim with just about every day. Ben, spends near all his days sleeping, but is content with that.
All in all, everyone is enjoying life in the Borders.
We also regularly meet up with James, another 2nd Chancer, on the village green!
Best wishes
Linda, Thanks for the update, aw Blue looks so distinguished, so pleased young Timmy has found sme pals to plat with. Say hi to James when next you see him. XX
Linda doesn't he look
