Our young lurcher boy Piccadilly has sadly been returned to us, after only a week, through no fault of his own (well if we are honest, maybe a little). Whilst we may feel that he wasn’t given enough time/commitment to settle into a new world we also have to step back and consider that we […]

Trafalgar

Trafalgar is a young lurcher boy, approximately 12-16 months old, who arrived to us from the pound. He can be a little shy and unsure at first as he has only known life in the back yard where he was kept. We feel he would do well in a home where there is already another […]

September 2020 saw the arrival of a very scared little terrier girl who had been found lying injured on the roads, in Mullingar, after she was hit by a car. One of her front legs was severely damaged and, at first, we all hoped it was just nerve damage and would, perhaps, heal. Sadly, as […]
