Six year old Pal lives locally with his foster carers and female greyhound companion Candy. His foster carers describe Pal as a 'loveable companion who enjoys lots of cuddles in the company of humans'. They say he continues to act like a lap dog and that he is very fond of his teddies and football.
Pal has made great progress whilst in their care and his tolerance of small dogs has improved as he has regularly been exposed to situations where there are other dogs. We would expect anyone thinking of adopting Pal to continue this vital work.
If you would like to find out more about Pal please contact either Sue our re-homing co-ordinator on 07794463249 or Siobhan at kennels on 07960561988
Today we are pleased to share a photo of six year old adopted Makants hound Jack proudly wearing his rosette after his big win on Sunday.
Jack, who lives with Sue and Nora, came first in the Best Rescue category on Sunday at the REACH Sled Dog Rescue show at Barton airport. Sue says that she was 'very surprised and pleased that Jack won his class', adding that straight after winning Jack headed over to the Makants marquee for a little rest. At least he didn't let it all go to his head, well done Jack! :)
Our fundraisers have gone beyond the call of duty this weekend attending four events in total, and we'd like to thank them and everyone who came along to see us.
We send our thanks to fundraisers Dave, Lisa, Sandra, Niamh and hound Charlie at the Mosley Common event and to Sue C, Janet Wendy, Mary, Stewart and hounds Jack, May, Flute and Rio at the REACH Sled Dogs event at Barton airport.
The icing on the cake today was adopted Makants hound Jack receiving a rosette for Best Rescue
Tony arrived in kennels in May this year, a big dog with a big personality to match and a very friendly boy too. Tony absolutely loves his walks and gets so excited in kennels that he does a great impression of ‘Tigger’ as he is unable to contain his excitement when a walk is imminent. Tony is calm when on his actual walk and is excellent on the lead, not reacting to dogs he meets.
Volunteer walker Sue has regularly walked Tony and says this about him:
‘Tony is a lovely boy, despite his kangaroo impersonation in the kennel! Once out and about he is very calm. He walks nicely on his lead and does not seem to be very reactive, more nosey!
I have walked him around Worsley Woods and Roe Green where he was fascinated with ducks and swans, cricket and especially bowls. We also popped into a tea room garden for a drink and shared a scone and he was a gentleman enjoying a fuss off staff’.
We believe Tony will make a great family dog as he has a lot of love to give. If you would like to find out more about him please contact either Sue our re-homing co-ordinator on 07794463249 or Siobhan at kennels on 07960561988
Jude, Hayley and family kindly took kennel hound Hattie out for the day earlier this week. Hattie loved the day trip to Martin Mere and certainly was a very tired girl when she got back. This is what the family had to say about her:
‘Hattie is a beautiful girl. She was very happy to be out and about in the wild all day. She absolutely loved the masses of attention she got from all of our children and the children who came to stroke her as well. She was a very social girl when meeting other dogs and she surprised us by being so settled in the car even though it was a long journey.’
Well done Hattie!

Today we are pleased to share some homing news with you.... and this time it's Janet!
Lovely Janet, the pups hard working Mum, has now found her forever home - a place where she can, quite literally, put her feet up. She is joining Sue, Adrian and their hounds Davin, Jess, Millie and Star in the Chorley area.
With all the pups now safely in their forever homes too it's a story with a very happy ending. Awwww :)
