Karat gave us the royal wave last week as she was chauffer driven (in her mind) to her new home in Cork. We hear that she has already decided that life as a loved and adored pet is so much better than the stray life she previously lived. Mum Laura and big bro, Harry, are […]

Ronnie came to us a few weeks ago after we came across him locked in a shed. After making enquiries we heard that he had then been let out to wander the streets and nobody seemed to “own him”. So we searched for him over the next couple of days and it wasn’t until a […]

Sinéad, and her mum, travelled from Mayo to meet a very special boy. Sinéad had seen Dudley on our website and fallen head over heels! After a homecheck was completed the only thing left was to see if they “clicked”. Dudley had not shown much interest in his visitors before, so we held our breath. […]

The very last, but by no means least, of our cocker pups is Miney, now Bobby. Miney was, in fact, the first to be reserved but his Mums had a holiday pre-booked so we all agreed it would be best if they collected Miney after they returned. So on the same weekend that saw his […]

Fisher was surrendered to us in February. A young, bouncy 10 month old spaniel he had already been in 2 homes, that we know of, with both saying that he was too energetic. Fisher was energetic but no more than you would expect from a 10month old spaniel/setter boy and one who was so eager […]

Bourbon arrived as a stray and slotted into our kennel life straight away. He was simply the sweetest, kindest boy. Once we got to know Bourbon a little better we put him up for rehoming and waited for the applications to come in. And we waited. NONE!! We just couldn’t understand why this amazing boy […]

Corrie arrived in June 2021 as a stray. A sweet girl but one who suffered from severe shyness. We worked hard to gain her trust and once gained, Corrie was just the sweetest, most loving girl. We tried a few “meet’n’greets” with people interested in meeting her and they always went the same way, with […]
