Well I thought I was "at home" with my fosterer and all the other dogs. Then one day a lady came along with a dog that looked amazingly like me, only smaller. We got on really well from word go and had a good play. He was obedient too and so off we went in a car together. They keep telling me I have my passport and will be going to the UK. Stan, my new mate, says it's OK and he'll be there too. So I'm really looking forward to this new adventure.
Well, I just stayed and stayed and stayed with my foster Mum. So now I am hers forever and I love it. We go for very long walks every single day. I go in the car with her and meet her friends and other dogs. Life is just so good.
Lucky Lou, this beautiful lemon English Setter pup, has found his forever home up in the mountains with a family who know setters through and through. He is growing into a wonderful dog and is thoroughly loved . . . though not spoiled!!! Hard luck, original owner, you really really missed out on this one!
My foster family wants me!! I've been with them for several months. I know it took me a while to get used to what was wanted of me - and they were incredibly patient, giving me every opportunity of learn. Their other live-in four-legged really did not like me very much at first - I think I was a bit too lively. But little by little they have all grown to love me . . and I really love them and am SO grateful to them for giving me a chance. I will always be faithful to them.
JAVA'S STORY: Well the lady came back with her husband and looked at me and my other two sisters. And then went away again. I felt a bit disappointed . . . and then to my surprise, they turned up at the Puppy Party and at the end of it I didn't have to do back in my kennel! They picked me up, put a lead on me, took me for a little walk and then . . . put me in their car! You could have knocked me down with a feather - I was adopted! I have a new home and I am so happy. I really really hope the same happens for my two lovely sisters, Nala and Lana.
LANA'S STORY: I was left with my sister and we were OK happy and then . . . this huge white dog called Iorek came to stay and I really liked him but he wasn't too keen on me at first. Then bit by bit her got used to me. With Christmas approaching, the big boy's owner said she'd take me to see how we got on. Well, Mr Big Boy as he's nicknamed, wasn't too keen on me being in his house at first but bit by bit I've wheedled by way in and hopefully I'm here to stay. I love my home!
NALA'S STORY: OK, I can now own up that I was always my fosterer's favourite and was kind of special to them . . so yes, I ended up staying with them and with my big "sister" Luna who plays and plays all day with me. She doesn't even seem to mind when I chase and hang onto her tail. She a beautiful big girl and I hope I grow up to be like her (even if I am black and she's white)!
Sometimes things happen for a reason. Jaeger's original fosterer injured her knee and was laid up. He was getting bored . . . and consequently naughty so it was thought best to find a new home for him.
Just onto our books had come a new fostering family who knew setters - a gift from the universe! And so he went to stay with them - and it was a match made in heaven. He even looked like their other two setters! It was not long before fostering became adoption and there is no-one more delighted than us for this boy.
After being returned from her first adoptive home as "too boisterous and wild", it was perfect timing as along came a family of labrador lovers who were looking to increase their pack by just one more. It was - not surprisingly - love at first sight and after just a little over one week back with her fosterers she was adopted. She has learned where her boundaries are - and has even been introduced to their pet ferrets, giving them a loving lick on the nose! Live long and happily, dear Bella!
And suddenly, after more than two years of waiting, along comes a family to the refuge and they fall in love with him. Now he has a home. We do not know their name - but thank them from the bottom of our heart! Enjoy life to the full, dear Lemon.
