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.

Big Ben xx >>
Posted: 5th March 2014

Hi Ena
Just thought I'd ping you over a quick photo of the lovely Ben out on a walk yesterday. As you can see he was keeping a weather eye out for deer! Loving the longer lighter evenings coming in now. Ben is doing great, so so affectionate and very fit and sleek now (we've had to raise our garden fence due to his bouncing over the hedge the other day when some deer popped up in the field, thank goodness the sheep are away for the winter) hope we can pay you a visit soon as he says he misses the second chance sausages! We met another second chance dog on our walk the other day, a scruffy lurcher called Archie.
Hope you and Frank are doing well,
Lucy xx
Lucy thank you so much for the update on Ben, he looks so good, imagine meeting up with Archie he was just a puppy when he was adopted. xx

Update on wee Baxter xx >>
Posted: 2nd March 2014

Hi Ena, Frank and all my Friends,

I had a big week last week and wanted to share it with you.

Firstly Liz gave me a bath in the kitchen sink with special shampoo. I wriggled a bit and tried to climb out but got shampooed anyway. Liz says I smell all lemony now. She also gave me a nice rub dry and a brush. Steve came home at night and said I looked fair handsome.

But the most exciting thing for me was getting off my lead on the old railway walk. It was early on Saturday morning and there was no-one about so Steve let me off my lead. I had great fun chasing Megan all over the place. I was a good we boy and came back when called and I only strayed on to the golf course twice. Steve called me and I came back straight away.

I had another lead free walk in the afternoon and again at night. The evening walk was even better because when Liz called me back she gave me a wee treat for being such a good boy. Megan and I both liked that a lot.

Baxter that's brilliant, so happy for you. All you needed was someone to understand and give you the love you so needed.xxx

 

Liz says I’m so cute and funny that I should be in a Disney film.

 

I hope you are all well and I’ll keep in touch.

 

Woofs and licks

Wee Baxter

This is an update on wee Holly and her new family.

Sally thank you so much for the update and the photo of you all.She certainly looks as if she is really enjoying life.It's really good and so so pleased "our" Holly has settled in so well. Your girl is just so lovely too xx.

 

 

Dear Ena,

Holly is settling in really well. This morning we went down to Tenstmuir and both Holly’s had a great time on the beach and in the sea. I’ve attached a photo of us all in the garden. What a lovely day it’s been and hopefully we will have lots more of these soon!

We have decided to call new Holly, Polly, as although they don’t seem to notice the difference, at least we know which dog we’re talking about!!

Thank you again for finding such a lovely girl for us to re-home,

Best wishes,

Sally & Mark

Posted: 28th February 2014

Look who we met when we were coming out to come to the kennels, Sandy was rehomed about rthree years ago, and doen't see us very often, but he goets really excited when he see's us. You would think he wouldn't remember as he was only here for a very short time. Janet ( his mum ) says if we take the car and leave the ven at home he is right in at the van to see where we are, bless him. He gives the most beautiful smile too. Great to see you both xxx

Susie x >>
Posted: 27th February 2014

This is small dog's favourite position. When picks her up she wriggles back till she is like this as it is obviously really comfortable. Up dozing since 4.30 this morning. I think small just loves cuddling up on the couch. Hard going, especially as Poppy wants to run and jump and we have more than a month to go before she can. Worth it though as we adore them. Duncan is doing not too badly at the moment and his latest results were a bit better. Long may it last x
Lorraine thank you for the update on Susie she's a wee star ! as are Poppy, Duncan hope Fergus is doing ok as well. You've done so well with your guys. xx

It was sooo lovely to see " our " Shadow and he looks so very well, coat gleaming and so silky soft now, thanks to all the love and care he gets from his mum Jinty. xxx

Rusty x >>
Posted: 21st February 2014

Rusty is already settled in his new home. He was really well behaved in the car and has thoroughly enjoyed meeting the rest of the family ! He had a nice walk with Holly and Alex and then played 'fetch' in the front room. He's even managed a little bit of food.His tail never stops wagging and he sits on everyone's knee. You can already see that he's going to be a fantastic family dog. A great big thanks to you because the beginning of the week was so sad. See you soon when I return the harness. Take care . Hilary x
So pleased he has settled in so well, but we knew he would he is so friendly xx
