loving the unloved, homing the homeless

Ilse was Carla

i Gill,


I visited you in August from Northumberland to be united with Carla (as was – she learned her new name Ilse within a couple of days).


 She is coming along wonderfully and now quite brave and happy in new situations.  She plays and runs on the beach at least twice a day—a.m. and evening with me, and with other dog friends for her midday walk. When the tide is high we trot round the local streets—which she also enjoys as this old part of town has few roads so we are not bothered by cars and she can trot around off the lead. She’s great with other dogs, too.


She has learned to love chasing a ball and engaging in other ball games. She loves to paddle in the sea; although we’re waiting for it to be warm enough for me to go in with her before she’s allowed to try swimming!


Ilse has the sweetest spirit and we become closer and closer each day. She’s a great companion and I hope that she is as happy with me as I am with her. 


Thank you for the work you do – I wish you well in continuing to find homes for these lovely guys.


Best wishes, Alison
