A tiny puppy was rescued from County Mayo, brought to England and named Boo. He was bright and lively, enthusiastic and fun – everyone loved him. We were lucky to be chosen to be his forever home and at four months old became Spike. He is still bright and lively. He is afraid of nothing and has a wild, independent streak but he still waits for his tummy rub every morning before getting off our bed. We love him very much.
We have had Lady since a small pup and she has not got a bad bone in her body. She loves everyone. She has such a lovely character.
Tess was a year old and a very nervous dog when we first got her. A total dislike of men, it took us over 3 weeks just to get near her. As you can see in the picture, she is our best friend and a proper daddy’s girl.
We’ve only had our little girl Millie for a couple of months but she’s slotted in beautifully and tolerates Woody very well! We were supposed to be fostering her but we failed again! She’s 3 years old and came into rescue because she wasn’t getting on with the other females in her old home so she was pushed out to live on their yard. This explains why she’s only just started going into our garden of her own accord – she now knows she’ll be allowed back inside again. I call her my cuddle monster as she’ll take as much fuss as she can get. She has the sweetest nature and is just adorable.
Woody’s owner sadly passed away and he was left in the house on his own for 3 weeks apart from short visits to feed him. He then came to us almost a year ago now and has totally transformed our lives. He’s a real character and can be a bit naughty but only in fun. He loves his walks along the seafront and, although he won’t admit it, he quite likes his new little sister Millie. And we were told he wasn’t good with other dogs! He adores coming to market with us and makes a beeline for the pet stall where he gets a few tasty morsels. He’s also quite friendly with Lizzie the sausage lady! We can’t imagine life without him.
Zammo is approaching his 3rd birthday and is a very happy, settled boy, having had a turbulent journey from birth, in which his mother died I believe and he was very ill, through several foster homes until finding his forever home in February 2012. Despite missing a toe and being a little on the porky side he manages to keep up with my whippets over the first few yards of a chase. Thank you for saving him and all that you did.
Jenny has been in our home only 2 weeks and it feels like she has been here for ever. She has settled in so well and is equally loved by our 2 Newfoundlands as well. She loves cuddles & snuggling under the duvet… Spoilt ? Of course she is! She came to us called Jessie and we renamed her Jenny B – New start, new name.
As many of you already know, Dex was rescued from Ireland in a pretty bad way. He was underweight and had to be sedated so that his matted and infested coat could be sheared off. He came to us two years ago, a thin short-haired dog with a food obsession and a dislike of small dogs! He’s now a picture of health and a dream to have around the house. Okay, so he steals food at every opportunity and hides behind parked cars when he sees a Jack Russell, but he’s brilliant and we wouldn’t be without him!
Sheeba was not wanted and left locked in a shed she was barely able to stand when she was found due to muscle wastage in her legs and was so underweight it was not sure she would make it.She was a fighter and after weeks of loving care she was able to be homed. She is now a beautiful young lady is a fun lively young lady and adores going for walks and meeting people and other dogs
QUEENIE & BONO
Mum and Son Queenie and Bono. Queenie was rescued by FFD along with her puppies, they all now have loving homes.
We met each other on a walk by chance and they had such fun running around with each other, managed to get some photos most of which were either blurred, ends of tails or just the grass, think for this one they had stopped for a breather before they set off again!
Heidi is a female Yorkshire terrier cross, (formally Scruffy) she joined our family from futures for dogs on Dec 29 2007. She was found wandering the streets pregnant in Ireland and was and was going to be put to sleep but now she is 7 ½ yrs old and very very happy.
All her pups were rehomed by yourselves as well…Shadow, Casper Kane and Bubbles J
This is Queenie who arrived at FFD a bag of bones scared of everyone & everything not even wanting to feed her litter of pups that were with her.After a few days she bonded so much with Stevie her foster mum she named her velcro and was quiet happy to sit back & watch her feed the babies for her..She is now a wonderful girl so much fun and lights up my life and all those who meet her..
