Hi! I know that you guys
like pupdates so I just thought I'd send you a photo of Jodie. We first fell in love with Jodie at FDR in 2006!!! Time has flown by, but
not a day has gone by where Jodie hasn't put a smile on our faces. Thank you so
much for introducing us x
Bertie - We hope you are all well just thought I'd give
you a quick update on our little man he's an amazing and goes from strength to
strength with everything that's asked of him like training etc.
Gotcha! Two years on since Buddy adopted us, he’s happy, healthy and such a good boy - and he’s loved to
bits. Here he is on a recent walk in the sunshine.
Basil (formerly Chip) on his first seaside holiday. He has a
wonderful bond with the boys. We haven’t regretted our decision to adopt him
for a single second.
It's only taken a year
but today Glorious George was free! Total recall on a dog friendly field.
So loved and totally spoilt xxx he's the apple of our hearts.
Poppy is settling in really well
Teddy (aka Little Ted). He is a lovely little dog and has fitted in so well
with us. He still doesn't understand toys but enjoys his walks with me and play
fights with John. Last photo was when he was rescued, second one is when we
adopted him and a couple more of him when he came back from the groomers
Best wishes Jill and John
Happy 1st gotcha day Amber!
Its been quite a year and you couldn’t have fitted in better to our
family, love you to the moon and back!
Hi All at Forest just to
let you know it's been a year today that my new family took me to my forever
home . You called me Sierra my family call me Freya.
Hi this is Freya's moma what can we say about
her she is amazing. There was no back ground on her due to the fact she had
been abandoned on the streets. But she has fitted into our family . We have had
get know her and it's taken time but well worth it . Considering we had know back
ground she came into our home with 3 cats 2 dogs. So for all you ppl that want
to give a dog a home do it . It is so rewarding. Freya we love you to bits
happy got you day

loves playing with her toys and going for walks and fetches my shoes when she
wants to go! She is a little star with everyone she meets and the whole
Can't believe it's Rolo's 1st Gotta Day today! He has excelled himself this morning by meeting
and greeting another JRT with out any hassle!! Even had a good sniff of each
other. So proud of him. He isn't a dog for the faint hearted but we love him so
much. Lots of love and woofs to you all.
Just thought I'd send
you a few photos of Sherry ( Now
Skye ☺️ ) we've had her a week today and she's honestly settled it so well
already! She's very loving but also very cheeky and loves running off with
shoes, pillows and doormats in her mouth but we love her already! She's doing
well on the lead and has been practising every day and her toilet training is
pretty much sorted! x

fussed 24/7. He is our gorgeous boy now and love him lots so Thank you so much
for letting us adopt him
Marley, the hero! Adopted from you in July 17. Romanian
rescue so plenty of issues initially. Last week my wife slipped and broke her
leg while walking him. He stayed with her for half an hour until I found her.
Despite distractions from pheasants and squirrels her stayed with his injured
"We adopted Dolly from you on 2nd. November and it is like she has lived with us for years.
She has settled in so well and we adore her. Here are one or two pics we
thought you would like to see."
Only adopted Summer a week ago and she’s settling in so well! She’s obsessed with cuddles and
loves playing with her sister. She doesn’t quite understand personal space yet
as you can see in the first picture but can’t help but love her!
Hello! Harley Quinn has been in our hearts and home now for 8
months and is such a
lovely girl, so full of character and love for everything and everyone
(sometimes a little too much at times!!) she goes dog training every week where
she gets to practice her good behavior and her sit and stay is now excellent in
this session! Her favourite part is where the dogs can all run around together
at the end (she is soooooo quick!!) and has a few
favourite friends, it's a joy to watch! At home she loves a good snuggle in the
sofa and playing tuggie and fetch with her ball. She loves hide and seek too
with people or balls/treats. At the park she is still a little too eager and
full on to greet and play with the other dogs (we are working on that) so we
are careful where we let her off but we are noticing big improvements! She is
Hi just a little update
on Lola (was Ruffle) who came to live with us 2 years ago today. She has been such a
wonderful addition to our family and we all adore her. She fitted in
brilliantly with our other pets especially the cat who she likes to curl up in
bed with. She can be a bit mischievous at times and we’ve had to turn our
garden into Fort Knox to try and foil her many cleverly planned escape attempts
earning her the nickname ‘Houndini’. She loves her walks especially when there
are squirrels to chase or muddy puddles to play in. Thank you for letting us
take her home.
A lovely couple adopted Connie (the little brown one) and a few weeks later came back to us and we
introduced Connie to Bumble!
I think we can safely say that they are friends!!!
Hello! Thought I’d give you guys a small update on Peggy (formerly Alice). We got her from you in
June 2017, and she’s just the absolute best. We’ve now moved to Manchester with
her, where she has a bigger garden and SO many good walks in the Peak District,
the coast, and all the other gorgeous areas around here.
After some work with a couple of dog trainers, she’s increasingly
comfortable with people - and once she knows someone, they are her best friend
for life. Including sneaking around a table to lick people’s faces without them
realising. Her daily dog walker adores her and the feeling is mutual, as Peggy
leaps into her arms when she arrives! She’s a big dog now too....
continues to be super weird too. Security cameras in our house have caught her
bouncing on our bed, building pillow forts (I’m not kidding), and routinely
slipping off the sofa while asleep....
just wonderful, and our lives have been so enriched by her.
you SO much for bringing this bundle of nutty energy into our lives!

And another great pupdate from Tilly formerly Scout! Not easy to capture a photo of an excited 10 month old pup but here is
Tilly (Scout) enjoying her first visit to the seaside. I can’t believe we have
only had this wonderful girl for a month she is so much part of our lives.
Thank you to all at Forest Dog Rescue
2 years since we got lil quiver...now Rosie. That day changed our lives for the better. We
now live by the sea and Rosie gets long walks/runs/digs on the beach every day.
Thank you for taking the time for us say hello once again Chewitt, look forward to
seeing you again soon
Just a few photos of Taz ( Denzel) he has settled
so well, both pups have calmed down a lot with play, he has well and truly
moved In..!! Lead work is improving and is learning everyday a lot of
perseverance with a lot of things but he is getting there. he is such a beauty
It's Flynns (was Wilko) 1st gotcha day! This lil guy was so nervous when we first brought him home in fact he never made any sort of noise for the first week or so. He's had lots of medical issues too but even with all his 'baggage' he's such a lovable, loyal and feisty lil dog.
We just want to thank you for giving us the 5th family member we never knew we needed. You truly are wonderful people. Flynn also sends snuggles..
My.old boy Spike had to be put to sleep he was 17 years old got him from you
