Adopting a nervous dog like Jenni is not only beneficial for the dog - getting them into a 121 environment with care and love, but it is so rewarding for the adopters - the first time they wag their tail, chase a ball and come for affection off of their own back is like hitting new miles stones each day!

37. Max - Adopted August 2018

Max is one our favourite success stories. 

What a different dog from the poor lost little soul out in Romania. All made possible by an amazing foster home who sponsored him and invested lots of time an energy into helping him adjust to "normal life" here in England. They showed him there are humans he can trust! Max's story touched the hearts of a special couple who saw past his initial nervousness and spent several hours tossing treats to him and gaining his confidence before he would even let them touch him. When they came to adopt him today he ran across the room bouncing up and down and wagging his tail he was so happy to see them!Some of our dogs get passed over because they won't immediately run over and say hello but if you're willing to work for it, you will reap the rewards!

One of the reasons Moose stayed with us so long is that he was undergoing medical treatment. Moose needed our help and we never questioned giving it to him after his previous owner refused to pay the vet bill they had agreed to cover upon handing him in. It has left us with a huge vet bill to pay.
