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.

Dear Ena,

Going to bring Ellie to see you tomorrow, she continues to be a complete joy. She has changed so much, both mentally and physically, over the last year and apart from her dry eye condition is in tip top shape. She has gained 3 kg and our Vet says she is just perfect. We are very bonded and she is definatly a mum's little girl which is more than fine by me! She is now off lead most of the time and it is just wonderful to watch her run and enjoy herself and just be a dog (though she always comes back for a cuddle and mussle kisses every few mins!). She is the best, cuttest little fur Princess ever and she just completes our lives. I am sure other people think that about their dog but they are wrong!

Anyway better go as Ellie wants the laptop to send her own message and some photo's to you.

All the best

Chelle

Chelle she looks great what a differnce to the scared dog you had at first eh, you and John have done wonders with her thank you. xx

Harray >>
Posted: 10th March 2013

Hi Ena & Frank, hope this finds you all well. I watch your site often and am never failed to be amazed at the fantastic job you do – I love the happy endings! Thought you might like to see Harray at Christmas. It will be 10 years this September since he came home with us which could make him about 15 years old but we won’t dwell on that. On a positive note, I can now keep up with him, well most of the time! Ha ha.
Hi Shona & Arthur, Thanks for these kind words but Frank and myself just love what we do, and love each and everyone one who has come through our door. Which is over 3.000 now !!
Thanks so much for the update on Harray he looks great and you'll be pleased to know you adopted him on the 20/ 9 / 03 remember he was found in a house in a cupboard originally, vets put him at 4 years old in July 20 /03 so you can knock a year off it'll make
you and us feel better.Thanks to you both for loving and giving him such a wonderful life. We are truly grateful xx

Jess >>
Posted: 10th March 2013

Ena: it was great to speak to you today. I've attached a couple of pics of Jess as she is now.
I can't tell you how grateful I am for letting me have the best dog that ever there was. I hope that Jess feels the same way about me, although Jess being Jess she thinks everybody is her best friend, particularly if they've got food.
Dave

Hi Dave it was lovely to hear from you and Jess and to hear you have set up home down south now on a house boat great for Jess bet she loves it.

Thanks for the update she's looking fab and so happy, please keep in touch I love getting updates on our past residents to see how their doing. xx.

This is one with the family and one of Oscar trying to put Bailey's lead on, these two are so close it's unbelievable. Lovely eh ! It was so so good to see them xx

Rio 1 >>
Posted: 8th March 2013

Well I'm off to my new home, this me with my dad I dont know who's more excited my dad or me.

The two photo's are of me in my new home, but I sent the guys at the kennels a letter.

Hi Auntie Ena,

I have made it home safe and sound. I was a very good boy in the car and have been very busy exploring and playing with toys. My brother, Ian, has come home from University to get to know me over the weekend and my sister will be home soon.

I have been showing off my toilet training and while waiting for Ian (he was late!) I met my Gran's dogs but they were a bit grumpy and went and hid from me.

Thank you for looking after me so well and letting me have my toys come to stay with me,

Dad has tried to get a photo me with a new toy but I am too excited, perhaps he will manage later,

Love to everybody,

Rio xx

 

Hi Ena,

 

Rio has been an absolute star. He slept the whole night and only got up when we spoke to him this morning. He sat while his breakfast was being prepared and was quiet while I had my breakfast, though he was very interested in what I was eating,

 

He has now up properly and I am going to stop typing and go and play, Rio hasn't inspected the garden as well as Sarah did yet but I am sure that will come :-D,

 

Thanks again,

 

Sorry I keep sending emails, we are all very happy.

With love to everybody at Second Chance from Rio and us all,

Derek.

Derek never ever be sorry for keeping in touch we love hearing about our dogs. x

Sherlock >>
Posted: 6th March 2013

I now have a fantastic home and a lovely Lab girl to play with, the guys at the kennels got my folks to come up and get to know me before I was allowed to go home. My dad said " when will we get him " and Ena says the day he runs to greet you when you come into the kennels, I have to say they have been very dedicated and came every day to walk me. Today I was so pleased to see them all that I am in my new home tonight bliss. Love Sherlock xx.

Snoop Dog. >>
Posted: 27th February 2013

Hello Frank & Ena
Just wanted to let you know how I'm getting on since leaving you.
I've been having lots of fun and learning a lot.
So far I've learnt that snow is amazing and I love rolling about in it and destroying snowmen,that
and fishing out seaweed (which tastes pretty good by the way),
that the beach is brilliant and i love going in the sea
that Christmas time is fantastic cause there are loads of people to play with me (and i get to dress as santa) and that Kerry (Mum & Dads eldest kid who lives in America) takes me running with her. (Tho I'm not sure she should stand on those dogs)
I've also learnt that going crazy whenever another dog comes near me gets me into trouble but coming back & sitting nicely by Mum instead gets me a choccy treat.
And I'm starting to learn that barking like mad when Mum let's someone in the house just gets me ignored instead of getting me attention so I'm slowly learning to not do it.
My Mum says I've been 'testing the boundaries' whatever that is but all I know is I get into bother if I get up to mischief ... Not that I would though, I mean just look at my innocent little face :)
What can I say, I'm a happy little chappy and my family love me
Love from Snoop Dog xxxx
Snoop so lovely to hear from you, you seem to be having an amazing time we are so happy for you love Ena / Frank & Co xxx

Posted: 25th February 2013

Hi everyone look at me getting ready to go home, don't know who was most excited me, Coby my new friend or the children Blair, Jamie and Poppy. Ena thinks the children would win for excitement as they were told they were coming to collect some stuff for a football team bless. Anyway I now have a fantastic new home and would like to thank all the other people who called offering me a home and there were many, for some reason just like Pudsey I was very popular . Lots of love Brandy xxx.

Pudsey >>
Posted: 23rd February 2013

I would like to thank everyone who has called offering me a home, as you can see I now have a brilliant home. My folks adopted Benji about 11 yrs ago from here, sadly he passed over to Rainvbow Bridge last year at the grand age of 15 yrs. They felt ready to offer another dog a second chance and I was the lucky one they chose and we know Benji would approve. Lots of love Pudsey xx.

 

This is me in my new home and as dad says,

Hi Ena, some pics of Pudsey settling in, He's still a bit nervous though as you can see has bagged the radiator & the tv.

I think I'm well settled here mum phoned Ena this morning to let her know what kind of night I had and it was a good one.


regards John.
