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.

Hi Ena, Frank and everyone at the kennels,

Hope you are all well. I’m doing fine. Steve took me for my MOT the other day and I’m a healthy and fit wee boy. Christine the vet was fair taken with me and said I was a cheeky wee chap with lots of personality. I was the talk of the waiting room.

Megan and I are spoiled by Liz on a daily basis and we get lots of playtime, walks and cuddles.

That’s all for now as my tea is ready – fresh chicken – yummy!

Lots of love and licks

Wee Baxter

Baxter thanks for the update, so pleased you have found your " forever" home, you sound as though your certainly taking a trick with everyone xx.

Lovely surprise this morning, Olly and his family came to visit. Great to see them all, the wee lad kept Wee Alfie occupied throwing his ball to him. Olly liiks great but does cast even though he's a Labradoodle and isn't supposed to !!! Sophie wasnt with them as she's getting a bit older now and would rather have a rest than a walk. xx

Bonny & Hugo xx >>
Posted: 9th April 2014

Hi Ena,

Thought you would like to see this picture of Bonny (on the left) with her brother Hugo. We fostered then adopted Hugo last year. I am so proud of Bonny in this picture because she is not keen on other dogs being in the house and every time Hugo went to cuddle into her Bonny would growl then get up and leave. However, today Hugo was on the couch cuddled into me and my daughter. Bonny decided to jump up and cuddle in too with Hugo actually touching her and she fell asleep like this. It has only taken Bonny 1 year 1 month to do this but I am so proud of her. We ended up fostering Hugo because he was abandoned with his friend in a boarding kennel while their owners went away on holiday. The owners did not come back for them. Hugo’s friend then died while in kennels and Hugo could not cope without his friend by his side. I offered to foster Hugo because I though with him being older (12 years old) he would not pester Bonny to play etc and I did not want him to stay in kennels. We brought him home and all Hugo wanted was a cuddle with Bonny but she just growled and walked away. After months of them ignoring each other Bonny decided to try and play with Hugo but he just looked at her with a look that said I needed a cuddle when I first arrived but you didn’t give me one so I am not playing with you. Bonny has been through so much and I constantly feel proud of every small step she takes. It does take her time but she get there.

Love

Isla x

Isla what a lovely photo, you and your family are just amazing, the love and care you first of all gave Bonny, she wasn't the easiest of dogs. I remember she was so so timid hiding behind her chair at the kennels. Then to take in Hugo at 12 years old ( love the oldies) as I said your stars. xx

Alfie xx >>
Posted: 7th April 2014

Hello Ena,
Hope this finds you,Frank and the dogs in fine fettle.
Alfie is quite settled in now,and getting on fine with Bruce although they still have the occassional "arguement" over toys.Alfie is such a loving dog..he loves getting attention and playing,and he's a lot calmer now he's had " the op".
He's getting better on the lead and we're using both an extendable one,a normal one and the Halti.
Alfie is a bit aggro with other dogs though.He seems to see each new dog as a challenge and if he doesn't get their submission right away, he can get a bit feisty.I guess this will come with time and training.
Since he had "the op", his response to treats and verbal commands has improved, and we're optomistic about the next few weeks and months training.He certainly keeps us on our toes...*:) happy
He's a big daft lad really, and a typical lab.He's funny to watch and good with visitors to the house now too.
I thought we would have received something from the chipping company,so I emailed them.They have got back to me now, wanting to confirm my address and telephone number, which I presume you gave them on the form when I was getting Alfie.I've replied today with this, just to check our details are now registered against Alifies chip.If I have any probs I'll let you know, but I'm sure it's sorted.
How are things at the kennels? Hopefully you've not got too many dogs and the ones you do have are getting lots of visitors.
Our vets in Edinburgh had heard of you when I mentioned the name of the kennels,and thought Alfie was a cracking dog too.( they're huge labrador fans and thought he looked very well looked after and of good working dog heritage)
I've attached a pic or 2 for you.I took some of Alfie and Bruce together which I'll send you next time.
Thanks again for all your help with Alf's and I hope the kennel goes from strength to strength.
I'll be in touch again next month with another Alfie update.
All the best Ena,
Angus,Bronwen,Alfie and Bruce
Thanks Angus for the update on Alfie, glad to hear the big fella is settling in although still a work in progress lol, look forward to future updates. xx

Jess & Jake.xx >>
Posted: 2nd April 2014

Hi Ena

Hope all good with you. A few photos attached to let you see Jess now that she is all grown up! She is almost 13 months and is a bit smaller than we thought she might be (she still hasn’t grown into her ears!). She is such a sweet little girl. She still has a problem with some dogs when we are out and she gets nervous aggressive, however, once she gets to know the regulars we meet she snuggles up to them then rolls on her back with her legs in the air! She is so loving and sensitive. We actually think there is Jack Russell in there somewhere. The fact that she is smaller than a regular collie and some of the things she does, like springing in the air on all four legs. When I saw the picture of Rusty, one of your recent residents, it fell into place, she looked so like him. I am busy trying to re-seed the grass after a winter of her and Jake making it their career to destroy it! Now that I have started working in the greenhouse, so has she! She obviously thinks I've got too many plant pots in there and that they would look better if they had some more holes in them and were littered around the garden. She and Jake are such good pals, they are inseparable. We will pop along to see you sometime so you'd better have plenty sausages in!

 

Hi Laura,

Thanks for the update on your guys.

Jess is looking great as is Jake, love the photo of them on the couch !!! and yes always plenty sausages lol xx

Hi Ena and Frank!
Just a wee note to let you know Snowy's still doing really well. She's settled right in at home and in the office, loves her new aunties in Falkland who pop in often to have a play or take her a walk, and is sleeping and eating well.
She's full of beans but such a good and happy wee girl.
Thanks again for all you have done!
love
Gill xx
ps this was me last night - was exhausted after 2 walks with mum and then an extra one with auntie Emily, lots of playing, and hanging out with my new friend Mickey the border collie. So much excitement! I slept until after 8am this morning!
love Snowy xxx
Thanks so much for the update Gill, one lucky wee lass xx.Ps:Never thought she could lie this still Lol xx
