We have a litter of 10 Lurcher pups and their mum. They are now ready to move on to their new homes as they are nearly 8 weeks old. 3 Girls and 4 Boys available. Their beautiful mum has found a home already and is just waiting for the kids to start leaving so she can go to her new home. New picture to follow soon.
CALENDAR Dogs of the Month
May - Bobby Blue and Jessie
Bobby Blue came to KWK9 as a very small pup. He was the second of what turned out to be a litter of 8 greyhound pups, their mum and dad who we found homes for in 2014. Bobby was a very poorly boy for a long time once he went to his new home and had several trips to the vet. As you can see he made a full recovery and is very fit and healthy now. His owner says he is a friendly, soft lump of a dog and gets on with all the other animals in the family.
Lovely Jessie is pictures here enjoying a walk in the hills near her home. Jessie captured everyone's heart when she was in her foster home and we were all delighted ot see her go off on the ferry to a new home where she is loved and treasured as all dogs should be.
Could you foster a dog?
As ever we are in desperate need of foster homes for our dogs. The input of foster carers is vital for the dogs we take in. It gives us a chance to assess the dog so that we can do our best to match the dog to the right home. It also gives the dog a chance to settle down, gain confidence and all too often health, before they move to their new and permanent home. Most dogs only stay in foster care for a short time, one or two weeks and it is our aim to find new homes for dogs as fast as possible. We do occasionally get a dog that needs a bit longer but not that often.
We have one foster carer who has not been without a foster dog all year. It would be nice to be able to give him a break from time to time. If we can get a large enough bank of foster carers it would mean that we could ask for help from time to time but not often.
If you think you might be able to help and you live in Caithness, North Sutherland or Orkney please complete an adoption form specifying that you are interested in fostering and we will be in contact to talk about it.
