Doggie diaries

Introducing some of our longer term dogs…

The Doggie Diaries are new to Freshfields. They came about because we wanted a way of introducing some of our longer term dogs to you. Our ultimate goal is to find each of our dogs the perfect, loving home, which they so desperately deserve.

Freshfields has always had strict policies concerning 'non-destruction' and we never put healthy dogs down. It doesn't matter how long a dog might end up staying with us, provided the dog is not suffering in any way and is experiencing a good quality of life it remains safe with Freshfields, for as long as it takes to find the 'right' home!  We never descriminate against an animal because it is old or has an ongoing yet manageble health condition.

This means that we often find ourselves looking after dogs that many other rescues wouldn't consider taking. Some of these dogs need time to address issues, sometimes they just need to learn to trust again. We strongly believe that there is a home out there somewhere for every single one of our fantastic dogs.

Often dogs may be overlooked because people assume they can't be rehomed after a long time in kennels. This is not true! In these diaries we are hoping to capture the true character of each dog for you, bringing them alive in photo's and words.

We hope to show you just how wonderful they really are!

Hello Everyone! Remember me?
I have not forgotten about all of my wonderful friends, I have just been having so much fun in my new home.
What a life !

I've already been treated to a caravan holiday and have been trying hard to impress my new mum and dad.

We spent two days here and all we did was walk (on the beach every morning), eat and sleep. My tummy is not sore and I'm eating and drinking well.

My new mum and dad are right where I want them..... - that didn't take me long.

I've heard them telling the family that I'm improving day by day, I've decided bikes, sheep, men in strange hats are all ok, but I'm still not fussed about some types of dogs, work in progress.

Considering I've only been here a short time, I'm already feeling really settled and have a great daily routine already.

Sending my love to all my old friends, especially my old kennel pal Floyd.

Keep watching this space for the next doggy blogger who will need your help!

Love & Licks from Beau xx

Hi everyone.... Look where I've been today! I stopped by the rescue with my Dad and his friend to see all my old human friends who looked after me. Actually that wasn't the only reason. I was also having my picture taken for a local paper as I'm trying to help the rescue with their time of need appeal. I'm hoping lots of people can help by donating no matter how small the donation is. My Dad brought a donation to give from us which everyone was so grateful of. Anyway, we're off for a pub lunch now.... My favourite! See you all soon, Freya xxx ... See MoreSee Less

IT'S OFFICIAL!! I'M ADOPTED!!
I'm so happy here in Yorkshire, Sue says it's like I've always been here! For seven whole years I waited for my special home to come along. It's a good job so many lovely people looked after me so well along the way - other rescues might have given up on me! From now on it's lots of cuddles, big walks, deep sleeps, and fun and games - for the rest of my life! I can't wait to have all kinds of adventures. Thank you all for caring so much about me, I'll send you some pictures.... Byeeee!!!
