Today we walked some beautiful doggies that are in rescue, in need of loving new homes. I took my old camera along and got some pics, so thought I would share 🙂
First we walked Poppy, a beautiful 3 year old Collie cross. She was so dinky! She was very worried in her kennel, very anxious about meeting people and the stressful kennel environment, but once she was out in the paddock she turned into a different dog! She loved to play fetch, and every time would bring the ball back and drop it close to you so you could throw it again…somehow I don’t think she’ll be in rescue for very long 😉
Then we went to see two of my favourite dogs, Star and Rossie. Star is a four year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier and is simply gorgeous. Brindle and white she is very unusual looking and just a lovely girl. She has been at the sanctuary for several years now (Staffordshire Bull Terriers get terrible press over here and rescues really struggle to find good homes for them 😦 ) and is just waiting to show what a loving, good girl she is.
Rossie is another Staffy, and is seven years old. He is squat, chunky and goooorgeous!! He’s a lovely, well-mannered boy, and the only reason he hasn’t found a home yet is his breed 😦 He does have one minor problem, and that is that when he is being walked on the lead, if he gets very excited, he will hump the walkers’ legs (this is NOT a dominance issue!!) 😀
Next we took out Bella, a young crossbreed girly who is huge! She is lovely, very full-on; full of life, wanting to play all the time and generally just a very happy girl. No dog deserves to be in rescue at her age, she is only nine months old. We had a ball playing with her in the paddock 🙂
Then we came back to our own little diva, who was definitely in the right mood for posing in front of the camera!!
I love how huge her head looks here 😄
So that was our day 🙂 How was yours’?
