Here’s my lovely furry son Scout who we adopted back in 2014.
It’s his 4th birthday today…well we’ve decided it’s his birthday as we don’t actually know.
He’s such a funny, loving boy.
Life would be much duller…though distinctly less hairy…without him.
Thank you for rescuing him and thank you for letting us have him.

Just quick message to let you know Benny is still going strong all these years later!
He has a lot more white hairs (haven’t we all?!) and a couple of inches on the waistline, but still happy, loving, and loved every single day since you brought him here to his forever home from Tralee.
We can never thank you enough
Love, light and happy tailwags Helen!
From Benny, Donna, and Ruudi the cat

Tommy & Mossie have now found homes !!

progress update on Tommy: 10/06/2018

Helen, just wanted to let you know that Tommy is doing really well!
He’s great at puppy training and now knows sit, lay down, stay, leave it and come.
He’s also built up quite a lovely friendship with one of our cats in particular!

Scooby Doo (a.k.a Charlie)

Hi Helen, hope all is well! Update on what Scooby Doo has been up to:
So I took Scooby Doo to his first activity class which includes fun agility, fun rally, Tellington TTouch ground work for proprioception, etc.
He really kept the flag flying for lurchers and I can honestly say that he was one of the best behaved dogs there!
He tried everything and even managed the scary high ramp after 3 attempts!
What was lovely for me was to see that all the hard work I put in him for the last 2 and a half year completely paid off,
and that he is really determined, focused on me and really put all his trust in me..
He was allowed a McDonald’s chip from his human brother’s birthday breakfast as a reward and has now been asleep on the sofa for two hours solid, in true lurcher style! Love this boy so much
A few pics to follow.. xx

progress update: 10/06/2018

Mollie and Bruce would like to say hello to everyone,
Bruce was a small puppy when he came to live with us
All the advice and support given by Helen and her team helped Bruce become the well mannered boy he is today (hiding behind Mollie) and Mollie came to live with us after Helen rescued her her pups and her mate.
She brings so much joy to everyone she meets, both are non reactive, and love meeting new dog friends, and never forget a face or a dog.
Thank you for all you do for our friends x

Hello and a Very Happy Christmas from Mollie and Bruce,

Mollie would like to wish her puppies and her mate a good Christmas and New Year – she hopes you’ve all been good!

Bruce wishes his Brothers a Happy Christmas and New Year.

With Linda and Stuart they will continue to raise awareness of rescued dogs in the hope that one day there will not be any dogs to rescue

Mollie meeting her puppies again at the Dog Show.
Poppy and Flynn with his back to us, hope to meet up with maybe some of the other puppies another time,

Mollie and Taylor were such great parents to the puppies.

Hello Helen just a quick update on Mollie,
she seems to have settled in very well,
Bruce and Mollie are so good together, both sharing the same ideas that,
everybody will want to say hello, which of course they do.
She has been exploring the area with us today, liked the beach,
and around the harbour side, not sure she understood what swans are.
Like Bruce is not a fan of lorries or buses going by,
we are all tired and resting now, ready for the next walk.

Linda Stuart Bruce and Mollie

The Kelpie puppies and Mum – Molly and Dad – Taylor arrived today.

Hi Helen,
Pictures at last of the Kelpie family, the farmer himself took the pictures and apologies for them as he feels they are
not so good but I must say he did a better job than I could have, as you can imagine they never stop jumping around.
The picture of the dad was taken by myself but he was tied up at the time.
The mum is the dog with a hand under her face and her name is Molly,
the dad is called Taylor and the puppies do not have a name as yet.
They seem to have grown so much in 2 weeks and Oh by the way, they are actually 12 weeks old, he remembered at the
weekend that they were born end of June or beginning of July.
They were all vaccinated yesterday.
Taylor and Molly are about 4 years old, Molly is very friendly but
Taylor is a little nervous but I think he will come round. The last
time I saw the puppies which was last week they were so friendly,they
do have the run of the farm when the farmer comes home from work, he
has to work outside the farm as well.
We don’t know how many males or females there are the farmer forgot to
check but they are mixed.
As always Helen, thank you so very much and many thanks also to
everyone else involved.
all the very best,

Bailey has now found a home !!

Bailey is a cross-breed with a LOT of Labrador in him hence the whole body wagging and liking of carrying a soft toy in his mouth.
A lovely, lovely dog who gets on with other dogs, great with the children he met at the dog show on Sunday and generally a friendly chap.
He is so pleased to meet people and say Hello.
He loved his day out at the dog show and all the attention he received from everyone.
Bailey is about 18 months old.
