Adoption story of the month

STORM……a story to warm the heart

This gorgeous 8 year old Dutch shepherd cross, was relinquished to the rescue in July 2018 when her owner’s circumstances changed and they felt Storm was being left home alone for too many hours.

From the very start, she was such a well behaved, gentle dog, and we could not understand why she was not instantly snapped up. But good things come to those who wait….

One rainy Wednesday in March 2019, some prospective adopters were searching to offer a home, and their hearts, to a rescue dog. They had heard about Adam Bailey Rescues and Rehomes, so they decided to have a look at our Facebook page, where they came across the photos and profile of beautiful Storm. They knew straight away that they could give Storm the home she needed, and they felt sure she was a perfect match for them.

Storm’s prospective adopters contacted the rescue through our Facebook direct messenger link.  After it was clear that they met all the rescue’s adoption criteria with flying colours, a visit for them to meet Storm at her foster carer’s home was organised.

The big day came. It was a bit wet and blustery but that didn’t stop Storm and her prospective adopters from having a fantastic time together, playing catch in the big field nearby. It was love at first sight.

The visit was a massive success, so the adopters asked for a home check which was carried out a few days later.  Shortly after that, there followed the final stage of the adoption process – signing the adoption forms. Storm was officially Adopted!

On the day of her adoption, Storm waited patiently for her new family to arrive to collect her, and when they arrived, it was waggy tails and excitement all round!

We are so pleased to report that Storm has made herself right at home with her new family and has already managed to sneak into the bedroom for night time snuggles. If you look at the last two photos of Storm in this gallery, which were taken AFTER she was adopted, she certainly seems to be smiling.  What a perfect ending!!!!
