Charlie has found an ideal home
Posted on March 19, 2007
Only two weeks ago, we ran a story about pooches at an Eaton Bray kennels in search of new owners.
We featured four hounds at Appledown Kennels but there were many more looking for a place to settle.
One of the most popular dogs was Charlie, pictured, a five-year-old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, who had a pretty bad start in life as a stuf dog on a puppy farm in Ireland.
Charlie, deaf and with one of his eyes in need of permanent medication, was taken by a dog lover who could be with him all day.
Appledown owner Julie Shelton said: "The lady had looked after special needs children so she was absolutely fine with him and just loves him.
"We had a lot of people phone about Charlie. We had about seven or eight good homes come forward for him but this one was just perfect for his needs and it's working out well."
And two other dogs, not featured in the newspaper, were also given a new start by readers who visited the kennels after reading about the needy pets.
There is a constant flow of discarded dogs coming into the site and as many as 40 are still looking for someone to provide them with a fresh beginning and a loving home.
Anyone interested in providing a dog with a new home should call Appledown Kennels, Harling Road, Eaton Bray, on 01525 220383.
