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.
We are pleased to let you know we have received a donation for £434.69 from the Support Adoption for Pets charity. Our volunteer Lynda took kennel hound Moll to the Pets at Home, Leigh store to collect the cheque today.
It's been a year now since kennel hound Patrick had his photoshoot courtesy of our photographer Sue Costello. He still remains in our kennels, a much loved boy with his own fan club, but continues to wait for his forever home.
Patrick has been with us for over two years and although his confidence has improved he still remains wary of new people and certain everyday situations. Patrick would need a very patient adopter who would take things slowly, and at his pace. Any prospective adopters would need to be prepared to make as many visits to kennels as is required, in order to build up a strong relationship with him prior to any re-homing.
If you would like to find out more about Patrick please contact either Sue our re-homing co-ordinator on 07794463249 or Siobhan at kennels on 07960561988
Little lurcher Suzie is a really sweet girl. She is currently in foster with Makants hound Snowie and foster carers Jess and Andrew. Whilst living with them they have watched Suzie’s confidence grow and she is now starting to come out of her shell.
Suzie has shown she loves to play, both on her own and with other dogs large or small. She is a bundle of fun and does tend to get over excited playing and shows this by barking. Her foster carers are working on trying to tone this down while still letting her enjoy her playtime.
Suzie is fully housetrained and is happy to be left for periods of time during the day. She has bonded well with Snowie so we think she would prefer canine company in her forever home.
If you would like to find out more about Suzie featured here or any of our other hounds please contact either Sue our re-homing co-ordinator on 07794463249 or Siobhan at kennels on 07960561988
