We want to help rescue more dogs but to do this we need help. We are looking for volunteers to help with back office tasks who have skills in fundraising, social media and Wordpress. If you can help please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
YIPPEE!!! Another puppy has gone to their forever home. Louis was sponsored by one of our own volunteers, who named him after her own dog. So it was fortunate that the family who adopted him, where well known to our Volunteer. They are a lovely local family and although Louis is a bit frightened by their two cats, hopefully they will all settle down together soon. Mr Louis and his brother Peanut were both adopted this weekend and hopefully they will meet their mum who was also adopted locally about 2 weeks ago. It now only leaves their sister Joy to arrive which hopefully will be soon. Thanks to our partners in Portugal for all their help in rescuing, fostering & nurturing this lovely family.
YIPPEE!!! Peanut has gone to live with a lovely local family with a new girlfriend called Biscuit to show him around. Have a wonderful life sweet Peanut. You have left a big impression on us all. Big thanks to our Portugese team for all your hard work in rescuing Peanut, his siblings & his Mum.
Yippee!!! Pepper (Potts) has been adopted!!! This scrummy little girl was tiny when she was first found and after lots of love and affection by our partners in the Algarve, she quickly found her mojo and her infectious loving nature shone through! We get lots of people wanting to adopt but we had the ideal family in mind and so she was whisked away to her forever home soon after the Happy Bus arrived. She has found a home with a very loving local family, with three young boys, who will keep her active and give her the love she craves and deserves! Our adopters were over the moon at Pepper joining their family and we received this very touching message from them today. "Thank you so much again. We have been overwhelmed at how much you do. You are both amazing and we feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to give a pup a home through yourselves. Your care and attention to the dogs and the whole process is at another level. Thank you! " So we just want to share the praise with our partners in Portugal, without who's intervention in saving them, raising them and preparing them for their next chapter in their lives, wouldn't be possible without them!
🐶❤️HAPPY GOTCHA DAY!❤️🐶 On the 2nd of August 2019, the absolutely adorable Finnley was adopted by a lovely lady living in Fleet! Finnley was previously called Otto and came all the way from sunny Portugal. ☀️ It is clear to see that Finnley and his adopter think the world of each other and are the best of friends - what a perfect match! 🥰 We asked his adopter how Finnley is getting on, and this is what she said: "Wow! Cant believe it's been a year already, it feels like I've always had this little guy in the my life. Finnley is such snuggle monster, any excuse for a cuddle and nap and he's there! He loves to carry things in his mouth and will greet you at the door with a toy or sometimes your shoe or a sock to say hi! He loves to explore and is always keen for an adventure. Finnley has come on such a long way over the past year and is getting more confident with life everyday. We still have a little way to go but I'm so proud of how far he's come and looking forward to many adventures ahead!" Finnley has grown up to be such a charming, sweet, and loving little dog and we are so grateful to his adopter for giving him such a fulfilling life! We wish them a VERY happy gotcha day! 🐶❤️🥳
ALL ABOARD - Happy Bus now departing Portugal arriving here on Saturday! We have 5 puppies arriving and all going into homes but we have now arranged more dogs arriving in August and September which aren't yet reserved. More details to follow soon. On this trip we have Louis and Peanut who are Elsa's (aka Emma) pups: she arrived two weeks ago. Sadly their sister Joy had a bad reaction to the worming treatment and has had to stay behind. She will be coming over when she has recovered. Her Happy Bus ticket was quickly snapped up by the very cute Balthazar! Also sitting on the back seat will be Pepper and Winnie. Safe travels and see you all Saturday when we will be going live here on FB!
🐶❤️HAPPY GOTCHA DAY!❤️🐶 The second dog to go to their forever family on the 27th July 2019 is the beautiful Coco! Coco (previously known as Julia) also came from Portugal and was only 4 months old when she was adopted! She was adopted by a wonderful family in Yateley, and she is truly loving life now! 🥰 We asked her adopters for an update on how Coco is getting on, and this is what they said: "Coco has turned our lives upside down and inside out! She is a wonderful addition to our family. She has bundles of energy and on her walks she runs and runs and runs. If she sees a leaf blowing in the wind, or an insect, or a bird, and especially a squirrel she goes into chase mode. She loves to go wading in water but hasn’t yet gone any deeper than her chest. She shows her Portuguese heritage by lying in the sun as much as she can. She has changed our lives and we love her to bits." Wow... it's safe to say that Coco has settled in perfectly, and she really is enjoying life to the fullest! We want to say a massive thank you to Coco's adopters for opening their hearts and home to Coco. Happy 'gotcha' anniversary! 🥰🐶❤️
🐶❤️HAPPY GOTCHA DAY!❤️🐶 The 27th July 2019 was a VERY exciting day for us, as we rehomed two dogs! One of the dogs was the very sweet Ohana. She came all the way from Portugal and was 6 months old when she went to her forever home!She was adopted by a lovely family in Fleet, and she has settled in wonderfully! 🥰 We asked her lovely adopters for a quick update, and this is what they said: "Ohana has become such a huge part of our family this past year. She makes me laugh everyday and has the funniest and most excitable personality, which is definitely infectious! She LOVES to chew her toys and play fetch, and is just the most lovely and playful little dog you’ll ever meet!" Look at that face! 😍 It is absolutely wonderful to hear that Ohana is still bringing her family so much joy! We want to say a massive thank you to Ohana's adopters and we wish them a very happy future together! 🥰🐶❤️
YIPPEE!! Suki has been adopted! She was the last of the litter to arrive and her brother Axel (aka Capt Tom) and sister Daphne (aka Isla) came a few weeks before. One sister got adopted in Portugal. They are all amazing dogs and we thank our partners in the Algarve, firstly for rescuing them from a grisly end (after being thrown into a bin inside a bag) and also for raising them to become such wonderful loving pups. When we resume our monthly dog walks, I'm sure they will all get back together for a play date! Suki has gone to a lovely local family and is already lapping up the luxuries of her forever home and we hope to see her again soon!
