** Celebrating Makants Third Birthday **
Sophie (was Orla) adopted by Julie and Mark – Nov 2014
'Sophie came to us as Orla in November of 2014. We used to come and walk the greyhounds and one day Orla arrived and came up to us to say 'hello'. We had lost our previous rescue greyhound, Sam, about a year previously so the time seemed right, and most of all she seemed right for us. ...
Sophie was only 18 months old when we got her, she was full of beans and hit it off with our bull terrier straight away. They are now inseparable and are always looking out for each other. They love their mad 10 minute circuit runs around the house! Sophie is such an affectionate dog and Jamie our 15 year old has taught her to “bow” for a biscuit. She loves her walks, especially on wet grass, it makes her bounce! When it is colder she has a lovely house coat she likes to wear to snuggle up in, it was made by Auntie Janet Splaine, (a very clever sewing lady).
Siobhan and all the volunteers work tirelessly at Makants and do a wonderful job taking care of these beautiful loving dogs (well let's face it, we don’t think of them as dogs, they're family!) Thank you for all you do Makants'.
