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: 6th September 2013

We also had a visitor at The Lodge Hotel Edinbane, " our " Ben has been on Skye for about 10 years now and just loves it, he is looking so good has a wee touch of arthritis and can't go for the long walks he used to.Couldn't get him to stand for a photo though so have taken this one of his folks Cath & Angus who absolutely adore him. xx

Well we're heading back down the road but it was so lovely to see Toby / Brodie / Ben / Jess / Moss and of course their two pals.Oops and their folks hahaha xx.

Jess & Moss.co. >>
Posted: 6th September 2013

Well still on the Isle of Skye we popped along to see Jess and Moss,

Both went to stay on the island last year and are both doing really well and looking great. Gerry was saying there were a few hiccups with Jess to start with, but sorted now ( I did offer to bring her back but he said no way !!) This is them when you look at photo of the four collie's Moss is the dark one looking at camera and Jess standing next to him, then there is Joe and the pup who is only six months old.Then one of Moss and Joe with the hen Couldn't resist this one though, I know !! it's not a dog but he is only a week old how cute is he.

Moss was a failed sheepdog and gues what ? He went along to a show and he won second place for being the second fastest dog to pen sheep !! Well done Moss, Gerry will make sheepdogs of you and Jess yet. It was great to see you and to see how happy you are with all these fields and hills to run around in xxx

Our boy Bogart. >>
Posted: 2nd September 2013

Jude thank you so very much for the update on "our " wee boy Bogart. We all had a lump in our thoats reading your story about him.
So pleased you came along a week past Friday,thank goodness for people like you who don't give up at the first hurdle. As you know he had already been out in two homes and neither homes could cope !! with him.doesn't take much if you know what your doing.
This is Bogart and a seperate photo of his mum and two pals, both Second Chance dogs. I didnt take a photo when he was leaving the kennels as I ususally do, this is his update for this lucky wee lad now he's settled in his new home.xxx
Hi Ena,
Sorry the call was cut short. Bogart is an absolute star and I can quite see why he has developed the snappiness he has: he is a very small dog and he has needed to effectively stop other dogs pushing him around. Unfortunately this transfers to people when he is stressed too. So the solution is not to put him in that situation, not to punish him for it when it happens but to sternly reprimand him. All the time loving him loads.

He is well trained and only wants to please. He also has just the temperament for mucking in with Molly and Roscoe (which is just what I was looking for). So, he is not leaving our family whatever he does. M&R are very accepting of him and he is dearly loved by my son and I already. He has been away in the campervan with M, R and I and has found that slipping down my sleeping bag is the best place to spend the night. He has lost a little weight due to the walks and games off the lead and his coat is shining in the sunlight. I would say, looking at him now, he is a very contented little dog who feels at home and loved.

Thank you for such a gorgeous wee friend. I attach some photos.

Jude

Buddy and his mum & dad >>
Posted: 30th August 2013

Hi Ena

 

Just thought I would let you know what I've been up to today. Had a great walk this morning with my new mum. When we arrived at the woodland walk she opened the car boot door I jumped out and I heard her say "What the hell, let's go!" I was off the lead and had a fantastic walk with lots and lots of new smells and new places to see. Every time mum shouted on me to come back I did, and it was nothing to do with the chicken she had in her pocket (I got a little bit every time I returned to her so naturally I came back every single time!!).
Then this afternoon we had loads of visitors - come especially to see me, I was on my best behaviour and charmed them all. Christine and Jim's son Peter came up too and he said "He'll do nicely" high praise from Pete apparently!
Then it was out again for another walk (same as this morning) - I know mum's car now and run and sit by it til she catches up. Then home for dinner which I have scoffed and am now lying sleeping at mum's feet.

 

Lots of happy days to look forward to.

 

Mum and Dad send their love.

 

Lots of love
Buddy xx

 

Buddy so pleased to hear you are doing so well,You were such a good boy at the kennels we had no doubt you would be okay with your lovely mum & dad xx

 

 

Well I went for a lovely run in the van today with Ena /Frank and wee Alfie. I was ever so good in fact at one point they wondered if they had remembered to take me with them !! My folks came to meet me and take me out. Of course I worked my charm and they fell for me, well who wouldn't I'm such a great wee dog, and have now found a wonderful home. Love Buddy xxx.

Ps: They thought they weren't having a photograph taken as I hadn't taken one at the kennels yesterday mmm no !!!! Dad's not looking he's making sure mum and me are watching the camera xxx

Posted: 22nd August 2013

Hi

here are some photos of chief now rechristened Ozzy. We're getting on top of the biting a bit. He's quite an anxious young man, but very loving. He certainly needs quite a bit of handling, He's going in for the snip next Friday. So Ill nip in and get the voucher Thurs.

Kind Regards.

Hi thanks for the update on Ozzy, he certainly looks as though he is having a great time, wouldn't have like to be the one brushing him out that day !! but I suppose your used to it by now eh !!!

Big Ben Settling In. >>
Posted: 19th August 2013

Dear Ena
Just thought I'd drop you an email with some pics of Big Ben we've taken since his arrival. Can't believe he's been with us over a month! We absolutely adore him and he's settled in so well, and is such a a happy chap. Thanks so much for letting us have him. I'm sorry we didn't manage to make it to Bark in the Park - we ended up visiting my mum that day and taking BB to the beach after which time ran out.
Attaching some photos - lots of sleepy ones because he does love his snoozes and it's a good opportunity to take photos while he's still -as you know yourselves Ben in action can move a bit quick to get a decent photo! You'll see he's commandeered an armchair, cheeky boy, and likes his sunbathing... particularly loves crashing out in the car boot (last pic), can be tricky to persuade him to come out after a journey!
Lucy x
Lucy thank you so very much for the update on Big Ben, he certainly looks well settled, we're so happy for the big lad xx
