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.

Cabo >>
Posted: 3rd January 2012

This wee lad is Cabo and he came all the way from Spain to find his forever home in Aberdeen. We were so pleased when Frances offered him a home as you can see he loves her mum as well they just adore him. Xx

*******

Hi Ena, hope you and the gang had a fab Christmas.

Attached are a few pics of my lovely boy Cabo! He's a pure Joy and such a character. It's nearly 4 years since you put me in touch with him and I took him home to Aberdeen.

Unfortunately, we found out last January, when Cabo suddenly had difficulty walking, that he has degenerative bone disease and two of his discs in his spine have calcified.
We thought he was going to have to go to Fife for surgery on his spine but with 6 weeks complete cage rest, (in a baby Travel cot might I add - Brilliant!) a ramp in the garden so he doesn't need to climb steps, a strict diet and plenty TLC, Cabo made remarkable progress and did not need to have the surgery - for now!

There is a danger that his spinal cord could get trapped and if that happens then he'll be parallised and it will be emergency surgery. However, Cabo is not in pain and leads a pretty sedentary life now but from time to time, he still manages to throw a wobbly and have a mad half hour flinging toys all over the shop and running riot through the house!

I very often think of you guys and would like to thank you again for introducing me to Cabo. I adore him, as does everyone who meets him. He's a very happy, spoiled wee lad and I wouldn't change him for the world!

My mum also just "loves Cabo to Bits" as you can see from the photo of them!

Merry Christmas and a Prosperous Happy New Year.

Love Frances & Cabo
xxxxx

Hi Ena, Frank and Co

Enca here - thought I better get in touch as its been ages. As you can see I have a sore paw for Christmas. Mum, Dad and Fiona said its all because mindless idiots thought throwing glass around was a good idea. I've been all bandaged up for two weeks so far and Im missing my daily swims in the sea. Never mind, it wont be long before I am backing chasing squirrels again. I cannot believe its three and a half years since you saved me. A wee Christmas Thank You cheque is winging it's way to you. We know you will put it to good use helping other pooches just like me. You are amazing!

Love

Enca (plus Lynda, Iain and Fiona xx)

Star >>
Posted: 26th December 2011

Well Star is on his way to a new life with another GSD named Angel. His folks have been coming up for the last fortnight to get to know him. He was such a timid boy when we got him in here, that's about three weeks now and only ever had one tiny wee wag of his tail. Hopefully now he has gone out to his new home he will settle and be a happy lad. xx

Jim brought Blossom for a visit she looks amazing for her age, he says she is nearly 12 but looks and acts like a youngster. We were very sad to hear she has lost her sparring partner Albert a black Lab also a Second Chance boy. Our condolences to Mary & Jim and of course Blossom xxx.

Angel >>
Posted: 25th December 2011

Leanne phoned us from Inglis vets to say they had a wee lab type girl named Angel whose dad sadly and unfortunately couldn't keep her anymore. So Frank went down and brought her back here. Good news for Angel is she has found THE most fantastic home. Lidia who already has dogs from us, brought her sister to visit and Angel was so pleased to see them, that there was no way they could go home without her. So Santa if your looking at this she is now in her lovely new home and we are all so pleased for her. X x

Zues >>
Posted: 18th December 2011

Got this e-mail this morning was scared to open it as I know our big lad is getting old.So sad he is so ill now but at least he still enjoys life.
We actually rehomed Zues to a lovely family in Dalkieth, we used to go and visit him and even though it had been months since we saw him he still remembered us, I used to stand with by back against the wall as he just used to launch himself, giving big slobbery kisses. He is 11 1/2 years old and now lives in Colorado Spring. Hope you still have loads of time to keep these bear & elk in their place old fella.
********
1st pic: This is Zues in his garden just last week.

2nd pic:Zues you look so peaceful
3rd pic: Zues with Tommy his Dad, hope you and your family have a very special Christmas.
Love Ena & Frank xxx

Hi Ena & Frank,

It's been a while and we hope you're all well. I wanted to let you know that my beloved Zeus is an old man now. We just found out that he has bone cancer. I cried for days! There's nothing we can do besides ease his pain with painkillers. He is comfortable on the medication and strolls down to the creek to sniff around or glower at the elk nearby. This will probably be his last Xmas with us. It's been a fabulous eight years since you brought him to us in Dalkeith. He was a handsome young man then and he is still as handsome today! Thank you for allowing me the privilege of having Zeus Rottweiler in my life.
Susan Powers
