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.

Posted: 17th January 2014

Hi Ena and Frank
Hope you're both well and keeping busy.
Ben (Glen) is doing great and really settled into Fort William life. Still enjoying loads of long walks and racing around off the lead chasing his ball. He's so much more confident and not spooked at every day things, like he was when we first met him. We remind ourselves every day of how lucky we are to have found him and give him a loving caring home - he's got us wrapped around his little paw!!
Looking forward to Spring/Summer when we can bring him to you for a wee visit - or if you're anywhere near us in your travels please give us a phone!
Thanks again
Look forward to hearing from you
Love
Ben, Jane & Steven xxx
Ben your one lucky boy to have found such a wonderful home.
Tell your folks we will be in touch xxxx

Buster >>
Posted: 16th January 2014

Hi Ena

Just some photos of Buster, we have had him nearly four years now, he was a poor wee thing when we got him with a damaged back leg. He is a brilliant loving best friend to all of us, especially his little sister Daisy, we got 3years ago from another rescue centre. They are inseparable. Don't know where we'd be without our dogs, thank you for giving us Buster :-))

Thank you so much for the update on Buster,he is looking good, glad your all so happy with him. xxx

This is me getting redy to go home, Ena says she hopes my folks have plenty of energy as I am a very bouncy but loving wee !! girl. Dad had to hold my collar so I would stay still for a minute to have my photo taken, I have a sis in the form of a lovely black lab, so they are used to Labradors. I'm going to have a great life here. Love Megan xxx

Lucy & Bramble >>
Posted: 10th January 2014

Hi Ena,
Hope you had a good Xmas & New Year, justlPa thought I would update you about Lucy ‘the golden one’ and wee Bramble.
They are doing really well, Bramble adores her and she loves him. It did not take her long to get used to his blindness and wee foibles lol
Lucy has nearly stopped pulling in her collar & lead now although she still has no recall, so no off lead work for her just now but she will get there with time.
They play constantly and when we call them in from the garden we shout ‘come on Mr & Mrs Doody-Bramble (his nick name) and they both come running.
Lucy is a very bright girl on one occasion they knocked a throw off the bed playing & Andy said jokingly to Lucy I hope you are going to put that back on the bed. Lucy grabbed the corner and pulled it back up! We knew she was going to be a real daddy’s girl when one night after she had been home about a fortnight she dragged her bed from the living room through the house to daddy's side of the bed so that's were it stays now. She even puts her paw on Brambles back if he is getting excited & gets him to sit!! She is border collie bright, we cannot thank you enough for letting us have this very special girl.
We are booking Lucy in for the end of this month to get spayed and I will give you an update. It is hard to believe that she has been with us now for over 2 months. Will bring then both along to see you once she is spayed and feeling her bouncy self.
Lots of love
Pammy, Andy, Bramble & Lucy Lou
xxxx
Thank you both so much for giving " our " Lucy such a wonderful home, so pleased the gorgeous Bramble loves her too. Love the photo's xx

Brogan going home. >>
Posted: 10th January 2014

Update on Brogan, well he has definatley found his " Forever " home, he is doing really really well. He just needed someone with knowledge of Springers!!

 

This is our lovely Brogan who hasn't had the best of starts so far, this is his third home !! but hopefully his last one. The couple who have taken him into their home have already adopted two nine month old Springers from us when we worked from home. They gave Jack and Jamie a wonderful home but sadly they have now gone to Rainbow Bridge. They now feel the time is right to bring another Springer into their lives.we wish them all the very best with their new pal xx

Bruno ( was Lonely Here ) >>
Posted: 9th January 2014

Hello Ena and Frank
Happy New year.
Just wanting to update you on Bruno. 2 years after we adopted him he is still as beautiful as he ever was. He is fantastic fun, very very happy and an absolutley
georgous dog. He is a terrible escape artist and now have to lock all the doors as he learnt very quickly how to open them.
He adores swimming and every cm of water, clean or dirty he's in it and trying to swim! it's taken him a long time to be a good swimmer. He couldn't swim when we got him and nearly drowned himself on numerous occasions! Now he swims like a professional!
He still eats his meals as if there is no tomorrow and his coat is SO glossy.He also thinks that he is a lap dog and just gets up and sits on your knee!
we have been meaning to bring him up to show you, but never seem to have had the time. I have attached a few photos.
despite the problems we had to start off with he has turned out to be a fabulous loyal dog and loves zeb to bits,(they both love each other but zeb pretends to be the alpha male)!
We will try to bring him up sometime to show him to you
I still look on your website regularly and your stories about the dogs still break my heart
take care and keep up the good work
Alison
Alison Happy New Year to you and your family.
Thank you so very much for the update on Bruno, lots of people will be so happy to see that the dog who was abandoned at the kennels about 6 am one morning two years past Christmas is doing so wonderfully well. Never thought the state he was in when you adopted him that he would ever look this good. Thanks to you Andrew your son and his pal Zeb he is now a well adjusted member of your family. We are very grateful as we know he wasn't the easiest dog for you, but you had the commitment for him thank goodness.
He looks so so good his coatis so shiny, love all the photo's xx

Look who brought his mum and brothers back for a visit. Timmy the wee Lurcher, he has been a bit of a boy though, chewed every wire in his mum's house / mobile phones ect :: I did ask his mum if she wanted to leave him wiith us but she was adamant that NO WAY was she giving him up.Which was just the answer we were looking for someone with loads of committment for their dog. It was great to see them all xxx.

Jinty & Family >>
Posted: 8th January 2014

Hi everyone its me wee Jinty, don't know if anyone will remember me, but I stayed here a few years ago. My mum and dad came with Zak ( long haired boy in the photo) and just fell in love with me.

Well I've been on a big adventure we all went to stay in Bulgaria, stayed there for a few years. Mum and dad said they must have fed hundreds of wee dogs who weren't so fortunate as me and Zak.

We have come back to Scotland to stay and Zara came with us, she is lovely and we all get on so well together.I'm maybe the smallest but I'm the boss.

It was good to see my pals at Second Chance, they were also very pleased to see me xxx

Margaret and Alex thank you very much for bring the wee one and her pals to see us, it ws really good to see them all.I'm surprised you only came back with one new addittion!! as when Jinty used to txt me she said she had towait in a queue for her breakfast !!!! xx

Posted: 8th January 2014

Hi hope everyone at Second Chance had a good Christmas and New year x we had a great time. Pooch got lots of squeaky toys from santa which we are all thrilled about lol. Here is a picture of the two doggys on new years day hoping for a piece of steak pie.
Pooch is doing well though he still objects a bit when we go out. He loves cuddles and his favourite thing is to sneak into bed with us.
Happy New year to you all. From Linda, Paul pooch and Darcy x
Thanks Linda & Paul for the update on wee Pooc, so pleased he is settling in better now, thanks also for not giving up on him.He and Darcy certainly hit it off now, talk about home comforts !! xx

Murphy >>
Posted: 7th January 2014

Hi Ena,

Sorry it’s taken so long to give you another update on Murphy. He is such a fantastic dog with a great nature he was trained well from his previous owner. We all just adore him, he goes for walks between 4-8 miles every day. He has been good for me too as I have lost over a stone and a half in weight (thanks Murphy)!

He has settled in with us so well and everyone that comes into contact with him comments how well behaved he is and how beautiful he is also

 

Once again thanks for giving us this great dog we have had him now for 8 months but it seems he has been with us for ever

 

Thanks again

Colin

Colin,

Thank you so very much for the update on Murphy he looks great and so pleased he has settled so well. Love the photo's xx

Posted: 5th January 2014

Hi everyone I got to go to the radio station on Friday I felt very important, everyone at Kingdom fm thought I was lovely. Lots of people called about me ( that's what happens when your a star ) and I have found such a lovely mum & dad, I went to my new home on Saturday afternoon, i had a really good night and was such a good boy, I don't even seem to mind the cat !! Love Jack xx

Update from Jack's new mum & dad .

Hi Ena & Frank
We have had a quiet afternoon in the house, didn't take Jack long to settle at all, we had a lovely walk along leven prom, pulled a fair bit but nothing a few walks won't sort. We are now all chilled out on the sofa! He loves the tv!! Molly popped in and he was an excellent boy but she's not so sure and has retreated to her bed in the back room, I am sure she will come round! We will visit soon, thank you so much!
Fiona, Ross, Molly & Jack xxx

Very Happy Hound Nanook. >>
Posted: 4th January 2014

Charlie brought Nanook back for a visit today, she is looking so good, she's filled out and looks so well loved and cared for.It was great to see her and she remembered us !!

This is a photo of her with her dad and one with Harry Greig who runs KingdomK9's.Harry took Nanook from the kennels and into his home. Socialised her with other dogs ( although she can still be a wee monkey with golden labradors). When she arrived yesterday we gave Harry a call and of course he came right up to see her, and she was delighted to see him again. xxx

First pic Nanook and her dad next one her and Harry.


Very Happy Hound Nanook.  Very Happy Hound Nanook.
