Dog of the Month

Mr July "Bryn"


The very photogenic Bryn arrived with kwk9 as a stray at aprox 8 months old, he was very timid on arrival but thanks to the love and patience of his foster family a lovely boy emerged very quickly.  His forever family initially fancied a collie as that was the breed they had owned previously.  Luckily for Bryn we did not have any collies in at that time and they decided they did like the look of Bryn on the website so decided to  come over to meet him- the rest is history!!  Bryn is now a much loved family member and has done us all proud at KWK9 by completing his Bronze & Silver Good Citizen Awards at training class.  He is full of fun and mischief and friends with everyone he meets


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.



We will have some seriously cosy comfortable dogs in foster homes this winter thanks to the sewing skills of a lovely lady who has transormed some donated duvets into lovely beds to fit either crates or baskets.  She has asked if anyone has any material which is fairly durable and washable that is cluttering up the airing cupboard to please consider donating it so it can be transformed into quilt covers.  Cotton flat sheets, duvet cover or cotton curtains would all make great covers.  If you have any that we may be able to use please email us at admin@kwk9.org and we will try to arrange pick up or drop off points.  Thank you.
