Adoption story of the month

Do you remember Ursula? Ursula came into the rescue from an overseas rescue last October aged 7 months, together with her three siblings.

All four of them were completely petrified little dogs who had had a very difficult start to their lives and never expected to receive any kindness from human beings. Ellie and her family met and fell in love with Ursula and adopted her just before Christmas.

Ursula is now known as Lucy. Lucy settled into her new family in an active rural home very quickly. Within a few days she started to learn to play and to walk nicely on a lead. Lucy met lots of people and started to lose her fear of people, and even began to enjoy having people make a fuss of her.

Ellie described her as “an absolute delight”. She is a happy boisterous little girl with a mischievous streak, who loves life. The first photo shows her and her siblings when they first arrived. What a JOY to see how she has transformed from the petrified little pup we first met to this confident happy dog who is adored by her family. Lucky girl!!
