MOUSE

IMG_1012 (1)*This is the story of my own parents rescue dog, Mouse.*

Meet Mouse! Mouse is a 1 year old Whippet bitch. She was in a shelter for 7 weeks, after she was abandoned and found, before she got rescued by my parents. They rescued a Galgo, named Skye, before from Spain, but unfortunately they had to find her a new home because she was too nervous around their 2 grandchildren. It was very sad, but Skye found a lovely forever home in the end.

12025520_1107669259277176_232149658_nA year later, just out of curiosity and for fun, they looked at some dog shelters and very unexpectedly there was a lovely Whippet, named Maud, looking for a new home. Was this meant to be? Everything seemed to be right. The shelter was quite far, but already the next day my dad went to see her. 12822136_1107685109275591_528500935_nHe took Maggie, their Australian Kelpie, with him to see if there was going to be a connection between them. And there was.. they were crazy about each other from the first second. They just couldn’t stop playing!

There were a lot of people who wanted to have Maud, but out of everybody my parents were her best match. The shelter had a rule that after your visit you had a week to think about it, before you could take the dog with you, but because everything looked so promising, lucky Maud was allowed to go to her new home straight away.
Nobody was expecting my dad to bring her home that same day, so it was a wonderful surprise. She was so happy to be in a nice house with a lovely garden and 2 new friends to play with. (My parents also have the cutest chihuahua boy, Nynjo)

This was definitely meant to be!

12833400_1107495425961226_2137581699_nI’m a big supporter of adopting animals instead of getting them from breeders. There are so many animals looking for a lovely home. All for different reasons, but all asking for love and attention.
It breaks my heart to see all the sad faces in shelters or the advertisements of animals looking for a new home because of all sorts of reasons.
It’s such a joy to see animals who are rescued. You can see happiness and peace back in their eyes. Every owner of a rescued animal will agree that it’s the most satisfying feeling ever!

Under ‘ANIMALS’ you can find 2 other categories: ‘Adopt!’ and ‘Rescue Joy!’.

ADOPT!
To show my support for animals who are waiting for their hero, I will promote animals under ‘Adopt!’. You can send me animals who are desperately looking for a new home. Hopefully I can help rehoming animals from shelters or prevent them of going there in the first place. What do you have to do?
– Tell me the name, age and gender of the animal.
– Write a story about: why he/she is looking for a new home, his/her character, any details which might be helpful to find a perfect forever home. (child friendly, friendly with other animals, is on medication etc.)
– Send me 3 of the best pictures you have of the animal.

RESCUE JOY!
To promote adoption (and just because it’s so wonderful to see all these happy faces) you can send me an email with a success story. I will pick somebody every month and share it on my blog under ‘Rescue Joy!’.

What do you have to do?
– Tell me the name, age and gender of your animal.
– Write a story about your animal and the rescue. (max 500 words)
– Send me 3 of the best pictures you have of your animal.

I’d love to hear from you! Thank you! X
