This week we catch up with adopted Makants hound Badger. This lovely boy was adopted by Gina and Russ on 31st January 2016 and lives with furry rescue siblings Bud and Tara.
Badger has settled well into his role as Chief Sofa Tester and Gina describes him as 'one gorgeous big softie!' Nice to hear he is such a well loved hound. :)
If you have adopted a Makants hound and would like them to appear on our Throwback Thursday feature please send in a photo with some information to our facebook page. We love to hear how they are getting on :)
On Saturday we had a fantastic day fundraising in Westhoughton. It was a new location for us and we found everyone we met so friendly, we'll definitely be back again soon.
The stall holders on the market were particularly welcoming with raffle items donated by Westhoughton Cosmetics plus kind offers of water for the dogs from several stall holders....and best of all the market is dog friendly! Here's a few photos of the day.
Pal arrived in kennels late last year and went into foster care earlier this year, with a female greyhound for company. He has showed himself to be a loveable companion enjoying lots of cuddles in the company of humans.
As you may have seen from our fundraising photos Pal has a party trick in that he sits on his foster carer’s laps like he is a human!
Pal’s tolerance of small dogs is slowly improving due to work undertaken by his foster carers, exposing him to situations where there are other dogs. We would expect anyone thinking of adopting him to continue this vital work. We feel Pal would be happiest being homed as an only dog.
If you would like to find out more about Pal featured here please contact either Sue our re-homing co-ordinator on 07794463249 or Siobhan at kennels on 07960561988
This week we share a photo of adopted Makants hound Bruno who was adopted by Phil in January 2015.
Bruno is a lovely 'snowflake' hound and Phil lists Bruno's hobbies as riding on the back seat of the car listening to tunes, sardines, lots of cuddles and kisses and his bed. Sounds like he has got it made, lucky boy.
