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.

Bonny xx >>
Posted: 3rd June 2014

Hi,
I thought you might like to see some photos of Bonny since she came to live with us. Be warned though there is quite a few so you might get fed up of them all!. I know how much you love dogs though so don't think you will be fed up lol. I will have to send them in more than one email. I also haven't been though all the photos so I will send you more in the future.
Bonny loved the house rabbit in the picture. She use to like the rabbit jumping on her back. The only time she didn't like the rabbit was when he went near Bonny's bed she use to just growl at him.
Looking forward to seeing you again.
Isla xxxx
Hi Isla all the photo's are lovely so picked out a few to share, Bonny is just nothing like the wee timid girl you adopted. You and your family have made her so much part of your family, she was even good when the children came on the scene. Well done and thank you so very much xx,

Well our wee Holly has been such a lucky wee girl, and has gone to stay with such a lovely lady and her wee Yorkie. We are all so so pleased for them all. xx

We hope her mum who sadly had to give her up, is happy she has found another lady who will love and care for her. xx

Rex and the Gang xx >>
Posted: 29th May 2014

Hello there Auntie Ena, its Rex writing for all the rest of the gang too. Hope all is well at the kennels?. We are all doing fine at home. Just wanted to tell you, im now a big boy as I turned 2 years old just there on the 28th of May..Mummy cant believe im 2 already..she keeps saying she remembers very clear seeing me when I was 13 weeks old for the first time while doing the night time checks and falling madly in love with me and then adopting me. Goodness I only had just arrived that Wednesday afternoon and Mummy had chosen me that night. Im a very lucky boy! Im doing extremely well at my jump jumps (agility) and ive even started competing at the agility shows..its very exciting and I just love it to bits..its just great fun. Ive also been learning loads of dance moves and dance tricks which I just love too. My favourite dance tricks are twirls, jumping through mummys legs, jumping onto mums back and reversing upstairs. I practice every day..mum says every time we are learning new moves or doing agility I always have a huge smile on my face, I guess im just a very happy lad:)
The rest of the fur babies are doing well..Tizer just won a 3rd at SKC in agility and mum was very proud as Tizer will be 11 years old in September and is still winning prizes, he always puts his heart and soul into ever run and just wants to please 24/7. As you can imagine for winning a 3rd at his show he got mega spoiled for doing so well. Gayle is doing well too at jump jumps..although this is hers and Jemma's first year competing together..so we will need to see how they do together..finger crossed for the both of them! Wee Bob has gained his weight back and is doing ok..at the moment hes had to stop agility until he gets better as we still dont know what was wrong with him but hes happy and is still cheeky and as usual always getting up to mischief. Jess is doing fabby as well, although the other day she had to get an emergency vet apt as she hurt her dew claw but shes back to normal now. Shes doing amazing at agility as shes now keeping all the poles up unlike before..everyone thinks Jessica is quiet, hmm not when shes at agility shes wild but shes happy and is completely crazy for it..which is good:) ... And Baby Joule is doing well too.
Well Auntie Ena im going to have to dash for now but have attached some updated pics for you to have a look at, hope you enjoy.
Loads of waggy tails and massive dog licks..Rex and the rest of The Gang♡.

Thank your mum so much for the story and love the photo Rex, as I know she's a busy lady. So good to hear how all our past residents are doing and baby Joels of course. Imagine two years already how time fly's. Lots of love Auntie Ena and Uncle Frank xxxxxx

Kim xx >>
Posted: 20th May 2014

Amy and Rose came quite a distance to take me home, they already have Holly, a wee rough coated Jack Russell who they adopted 7 years ago. So once again I will be well loved. Love Kim xx.

Ps: have promised to keep in touch with Frank I really loved him, used to follow him everywhere xx

Update on wee Kim she had a brilliant drive home and has settled in very well, had a very peaceful night. xx

Hi Ena

Here are some photos of Kim and Holly today - she is so loving things!

Amy, Rose and Rionagh

XXX

 

She certainly has made herself at home already so pleased for you all, Holly is looking great can hardly believe it's seven years since you adopted her. thank you girls xxx

Wee update on Kimmy.

 

Hi Ena and Frank

Just a short note to let you know that Kimmy (AKA Kim) is doing so well!

She has met lots of people and takes to most of them, although remains a tad timid with some men to begin with.

She has fitted loads into her first week with us - including beach walk, river walk, trips in the car, working at our new house build site, chasing the hoover, piling all her toys in one place and sleeping on beds!!

Holly still ignores her, but is tolerating her presence. This weekend Holly is staying with her cousin dogs, whilst Kimmy comes camping! I don't think she is ready for a sleepover at her cousins yet.

Will give you another update soon

Amy, Rose and Rionagh

Kimmy and Holly

:))

(Otherwise known as Teenny and Tiny!)

Amy thank you so so much great news she has settled in so well xxx

This is Scooby getting ready to go home, he's such a wee character. his folks are delighted with him and he has settled in very well. xxx

Ps: think he must just have had a wee bit sausage, which is why he's licking his lips xx

Wee update on "our " boy x

Hiya from Scooby.
I have had three fab walks today and met Tracy next door and her friend Ann. Ann had some good tips about grooming. Tomorrow I am going to the Groom Room for a makeover and will make sure you get a photo of me looking handsome. There was thunder and lightning here and I was very scared but my mum gave me a cuddle and covered my ears. Dad is taking me for my tea time walk when the rain goes off. Mum and dad think I am a real sweetie. I am so tired out I will sleep tonight!
I met lots of dogs today and managed to get our leads tangled twice! Met a cat and fortunately it gave me a wide hearth.
Missing Alfie so give him a wee kiss from me.

Scooby.

Beau xx >>
Posted: 6th May 2014

Hi Ena and Frank just sending a little update on how Beau is getting on. This little fella has brought us a lot of joy since we got him he is such a loving and fun dog to have and is very much a huge part of the family now. Never meet such an intelligent dog when he wants walkies he go's through to our kitchen and brings his leash and places it at our feet he also knows every saturday he gets a new toy (gos' through one a week because he loves to take the squeak out) so he waits at the door all excited trying to raid our bags lol. Took Beau to his first outing at the beach a few month back and he loved it, wasn't afraid of the water! Been taking him regularly since. x

Hi folks thank you so much for the update on the wee lad, he's looking great grown a bit too !! So pleased for you all, dig the pose though, one happy and contented wee lad xx.

Charlie update xx >>
Posted: 6th May 2014

Dear Ena

Just an update to let you know that Charlie has settled in really well. Feels like he’s been with us forever. He’s so friendly and very obedient. He’s very much a daddy’s boy and follows Jim everywhere.

He and Jess are good friends and have been chasing frisbees in the park. I have attached a couple of photos from Sunday when we took Charlie and Jess along the riverside for a long walk. As you can see Charlie found a stick to carry!!!

Hope all well with you and thank you again for letting us share Charlie’s life.

Kind regards

Sandra.

Hi Sandra,

Thanks for the update on Charlie, he is special just like the other dogs you adopted from us, it gives us such peace of mind when it's people like yourselves who give another one of our residents a home, as we know what a brilliant life they are going to have. See our Jess in the background there it was great to see her and your mum on Saturday xx
