Brandy Dec 2011 (1)


A  heartwarming story-just right for this time of year-we have heard from Brandy’s new owners.

We adopted Brandy (she was called “Blondie” at BCDH – but she had been re-named due to a truly horrible past history, and the name hadn’t quite taken so we could change it) in May 2011.  We wanted an older dog and the helpful people on reception suggested that she might be right for us – being quite a contented dog who was happy to sleep most of the day.  When we saw her the first thing she did was to run up to us and roll over wagging her tail, and we absolutely fell in love with her.

She has settled in really well at home – staking claim to the “big chair” in the living room, although she also enjoys curling up in her basket and looking out into the garden, or, sleeping in the sun on a nice day.  Everyone who meets her loves her as she is so good natured – in fact the little lad next door to us calls her “Friendly” instead of Brandy as he insists it suits her better!  We have taken her on a “doggie holiday” to Keswick where she spent a night in a hotel and was even allowed into the bar, and we aren’t short for people inviting her over (usually allowing us to come along too as long as we behave ourselves).  Some of our friends who have children who are generally afraid of dogs have even said that she is the only dog that they like as she is so gentle.

We consider ourselves so lucky to have been able to adopt her and are grateful to all at BCDH for taking her in in the first instance and giving her a great fresh start.  Thank you!!

Audrey & David (and Brandy)Brandy Dec 2011 (2)BCDH says: Thank you for giving an older dog a new,loving home-Brandy looks so happy and we are delighted she is so popular with all she meets.

We have quite a few older pets needing loving homes-they are often quite easy to settle into a new home environment-so if you are considering adopting from us,please dont pass the ‘oldies’ by.

If you are unable to adopt at present please consider sponsoring one of our long stay Paw Pals or purchasing one of  our Rescue Packs as a Christmas gift-to help the animals.
