loving the unloved, homing the homeless


Hello Gill

These are two photos of Maizee, now called Jenny, one when she first arrived and the other a few months later. I remember phoning you two weeks after we collected her as we were unable to do anything with her because she was so terrified - of us and everything around her.  She ran and hid in the furthest corner away from us and no amount of tempting would bring her out.  Walking her was impossible as I couldn't get her to leave the house.  You advised us to persevere and are we glad we did!  After three weeks, she suddenly plucked up enough courage to pick up a tennis ball and from that day, we haven't looked back.  I used the ball to get her out of the house and into the car under her own steam and now, 6 months down the line, she is a joy to have around and can't wait to go out and get in the car.  She is a bit wary of strangers coming to the house, but as long as they ignore her, she copes. We are at the park or beach every day, playing football of course! Thank you for my Jenny, she's lovely!!
