What a Star!

Saturday, November 26th, 2011


Great news of one of our former stars!!

Star – an 8 year old tri-colour border collie.

We adopted Star on 4th June 2011 and she’s settled in so well that,after only five and a bit months it feels like she’s always lived here.
We had intended to adopt a smaller dog but, having studied the profiles of several terriers on a visit to the home, we decided that they weren’t really suitable and we were about to leave. On our way out, however, my husband spotted Star lying in her bed gazing up at us with big, brown,soulful eyes and, when we found out more about her, we knew she was the dog for us. She’s loyal, loving, very well behaved and, on top ofthat,extremely beautiful! She was a bit overweight when we got her, her coat was slightly thin and she had dry, flakey skin but with careful feeding, lots of exercise and a bit of vegetable oil on her food she’s blossomed.
She’s very good with children and animals and has lots of friends
(canine and human) in our local park. She enjoys chasing things and loves running around with the rest of the “park pack”, although she stays out of the rough and tumble. She also likes a swim when she gets the chance so it will be interesting to find out what she thinks of the sea when we go to Cornwall. Having a dog has been good for me too. I’ve discovered some lovely walks, I get plenty of fresh air and I’ve lost weight. Star loves my husband as well and rushes to meet him with her squeaky chicken toy when he gets home from work.

We were so lucky to find Star and I think she feels lucky to have found us

Kay and Al -Star’s new Mum and Dad.

Star seems very happy indeed-thank you for giving her such a loving home she is indeed, very lucky.

We have many other ’stars’ here at BCDH  all looking for a loving home-cats,dogs and small animals too


if you are unable to adopt at present please consider sponsoring one of are lovely Paw Pals or making a donation to help our ‘Stars’ through the cold winter months-thank you.
