Happy Endings (Page 1/2)
Share your Happy Endings! We love to hear about how pets adopted from Oak Tree have settled in their forever homes. Whether they were adopted recently, or a long time ago, we'd really like to hear from you and them!
JessOwned by Debra Robinson
Jess is an absolute delight. She is so full of love and follows us round like a little dog. She was rescued from a hoarding house, but now she has all the space and toys she could ever want. We love her so much!
ObiOwned by The Graham family
We have had Obi almost 2 years and couldn't ask for a better four legged friend. Obi is very intelligent, loves his walks and loves to play with his cuddly toys and tennis balls but is at his happiest snuggled up on the sofa with his legs in the air getting his tummy tickled! He is not so keen on high vis jackets and sliding van doors but that's a small price to pay for the fun and laughs we all have with him. Love him to pieces and he loves us back!
NeroOwned by Ken and Gill Denham
We first saw Nero on the website and fell in love with his happy smiley face, we then went to view him, and we all took to each other immediately. We have now had Nero since March and he is really part of the household now. Nero has adapted well and he loves going on walks and he enjoys to swim in Talkin Tarn which is only up the road from us. He loves car journeys and will jump in the car at any opportunity so he can go for a drive. We have chickens and Nero is very good with them, he does not chase or bother them at all, being more interested in human company! Nero loves people and is a very affectionate boy, he is loving, kind and very placid, he has a lot of energy, he is after all, only 4 years old so we often throw him a ball when we are out with him and he loves it, because it uses up his energy. He loves to cuddle with us on the sofa if we are watching a film on the tv and if a package or parcel comes in the post, he is very interested and likes to get his nose in it to see what it is. Nero has also met the wider family including my neice who adores him, we often take him into our local cafe, or to the pub and he is well behaved and also he gets alot of admiration from other people as well, who often comment that he is a lovely dog and of course, it goes without saying, he loves the stroaks he gets off his fans too!!
Elsa (GSD) Owned by Lauren
Hi we got Elsa (GSD) just over 7 weeks ago from oak tree. She has come on in leaps & bounds. She loves nothing more than going out with her doggie friend every day exploring and swimming even when it's raining. One of her favourite things to do is chase bubbles you'd think she was part kangaroo. We couldn't of picked a better dog than her. He well and truly has got her paws firmly under the table in our house.
MinnieOwned by The Oliver Family
Minnie joined our family 7 months ago. To begin with she was very nervous, especially on walks. We were able to join an obedience class almost straight away, which was a great help for socialising. Now she loves nothing better than playing with a tug toy, chasing a ball or running round the beach or cricket field, preferably with as many other dogs as she can find! She is a lovely little character and we can't imagine life without her.
Sally nee SukiOwned by Elaine & Bill Darling
Sally went to live with the Darling's a couple of years ago, having been brought to the refuge as a stray. She's very gentle with a lovely nature and is much loved by all the family, she even gets the bed when the grandchildren come to stay! Sally loves to run and is lucky to have open spaces where she lives, she is always very happy to see Poppy and Rosie her border collie chums. Her favourite past time bedsides running and eating is sleeping in front of the fire.
HoneyOwned by Stevie sharp
Honey is fantastic! Last week she celebrated her 3rd birthday and her 2nd year anniversary of living with us. Although she's been with us some time now she is still just as hyper and loves nothing more than walks, cuddles and ham.
CassieOwned by Pamela Spooner
Cassie came to live with us 3 years ago after being used for badger baiting and being badly abused. She went into 'shutdown', as Paul O'Grady would say. She just sat in shock for about 5 days. She must have missed out on socialising as a pup, as all she knew was fear and aggression towards other dogs. After lots and lots of love and patience she is now the most loving little dog, and her terrier spirit is shining through! She is also beginning to make doggy friends.
DecOwned by Nia and Matthew Sowerby
We've had Dec two and a half years now. When he arrived he'd been at the rescue for 18 months and was very timid around new people. Not any more. He's made loads of new friends both two and four legged. We run a dog boarding business from our house and he does a great job of being the resident dog, sharing his space with all the guests. He'll soon become a big brother as we're expecting a baby in January and has been practising with the children of friends. We couldn't ask for a better companion.
Honey Owned by Hazel Barnes
This is Honey. Was Sadie. She's a lurcher x. I came to the animal refuge 3 years ago looking for a dog I could take home and for me to have a reason to get up in the morning, after I was recovering from an illness. She is adorable and settled in really well. She gets on great with my cat and other dogs she meets.
