D.O.G. Success Stories – Mze, Blue, Custard

So many of our residents found their forever homes in the past few weeks, we can barely catch up on the updates about our recent adoptions!

Mze was rescued by the lovely Juliet, and she has been with us since 2017. She always managed to steal the heart of some special volunteers – first she enjoyed regular visits from Owain and Galyna, then she moved to a wonderful foster home during the lockdown period -, but she was never fortunate enough to find a forever family. That is until this January, when she moved to a family with 3 children. After a long trial period, we signed the adoption contract last week.

The story of Custard was the very opposite of Mze’s long struggle: Custard literally just arrived at us earlier in May when her perfect person turned up at the shelter looking for a dog, and it was love at first sight. Custard quickly moved to Sophie, and they are inseparable since then.

Although Blue did not find a home as fast as Custard did, but he, too, chose his person, Bob, the day when Bob visited the shelter first. Although Bob did not know it just yet, neither did we, but it seems Blue had a masterplan worked out from the very beginning. Bob visited him regularly, then Blue visited Bob a few times for weekends, and eventually they both decided that they were ready for the next step, and we signed the adoption contract.

We are so happy for these amazing dogs and their even more amazing humans!

D.O.G. Success Stories – IRENE

Irene started life as a street dog before being rescued, cared for and adored by a dog-loving couple. When her wonderful owner passed away, Irene had nowhere to go. This was heartbreaking and it took some time for her to heal emotionally, but soon after she arrived at us, she had the chance to move to a foster home and that helped her open up again.
Not long after Irene returned from her first foster family, the lovely Vania and her family visited us, with the prospect of fostering a dog. As most family, they started with inquiring about smaller dogs and puppies or young ones. But when Vania’s husband took Irene out for a walk, they had a connection that made them change their minds and they offered to foster Irene.
As Irene is an old dog, we could not even dream of her adoption at that point. But earlier this year Vania told us they were seriously considering adopting Irene – we discussed all questions that can arise from adopting and older dog, and we knew straight away that Irene has found the absolute dream family.
We are so grateful to everyone who helped her along this journey and we hope this will encourage others to also consider adopting a senior dog.
