Dale has been waiting for a few months to come over to us. He is in the Irish Rescue that we work closely with; where Annie and Bonnie and Bran came from.
We couldn't agree to take Dale earlier as we always put the English Dogs first. Grace was going to come into us today, but has now found her forever home, so we have agreed for Dale to come over and into Southern Lurcher Rescue care.
Dale has been with his foster home in Ireland for nearly 2 years and not a sniff of a home.
He was found in a dark shed along with a poor wretched greyhound, who didn't survive. He was very traumatised and scared of everything. With the loving care of his foster mum "an Irish Angel" he has been turned around and she has given this dog so much love and devotion she wants to see him as happy as Bonnie.
Dale is probably between 3-5 years old. He has been neutered, vaccinated and will be microchipped to Southern Lurcher Rescue when he arrives. He is probably deerhound/beardie x, but he is a big stocky lad, and was Bonnie's best friend when they were together.
Arrival date is yet to be sorted, but could be later this week or next week.
At Southern Lurcher Rescue, we put our English dogs first.... and Dale has been waiting in the wings for over two months for us to help him.... So now.... come on over Dale. And start your new life.
Knowing you Barney if you are collecting Dale at some point from the ferry how many other dogs might you come back with or is he traveling alone. ;D ;D
Nope, he won't be travelling alone Jean: the very well-equipped courier's large van will unfortunately be full of dogs seeking a better existence than they've been hitherto used to, but t'others are bound for different destinations, so even though the temptation will undoubtedly be there, I'll not be able to succumb.
