Time for another failure update – our gorgeous Sidney needed to find an emergency foster home. Luckily we had a family in the area who had fostered for us before and agreed to collect him asap. However, it didn’t take long until Sidney’s foster family realised they couldn’t say goodbye to him.
Sidney was originally an only dog but he soon discovered the joy of having dachshund sisters. He’s fitted in really well with the other two dogs and is loved very much by all the family.
We’ve said it before but we really appreciate the help that people give us when we need to find foster homes quickly as without this help, we couldn’t offer the service we do.
Often people have genuine reasons for needing to rehome their dog but don’t know that organisations such as The Red Foundation exist. They therefore resort to using selling sites.
Sid is one such dog so when someone alerted us to his advert, we contacted his family who were really pleased that we could help.
Sid was originally in Northern Ireland but as we couldn’t find him a suitable home, he travelled across to Scotland.
Sid has had a busy week as not only has he just reached his one year gotcha day, but he’s also celebrated his eighth birthday.
Sid is the first dog that I (Sharon) helped rehome with TRF and it’s lovely seeing how well he’s doing in his new home.
Lottie, our wee 10 year old girl, is another dog where you told us about her advert on a selling site. Sadly her owner had died and although the family hoped to keep her, Lottie was used to constant human companionship and she didn’t do well having to spend time on her own.
Lottie’s new family had recently lost one of their dogs and was looking for a friend for their other dog Rosie.
Lottie now has constant companionship – either at home with different members of the family, or at church where her mum works.
Lottie is really settled in her new home and it didn’t her long to give up her dog bed and join Rosie on the sofa.
