Just Jazz!

Jazz is a beautiful young sighthound. He came to the rescue in the depths of Winter, a tiny frail pup covered from head to toe in some sort of glue. The glue had matted his fur and caused substantial hairloss and nasty sores along his body.

With the help of our vets, over time we eventually got his coat clear of residue and he began to heal. Never shy or cross, Jazz has the most fabulous temperament, he loves to play and is full of life – even as a weak, sick puppy he still had a tail wag for everyone. We knew he was a special boy from the day he came to us and every day since has only confirmed what a wonder he is.

As Jazz grew we noticed that something wasn’t quite right with his back legs; he could run and play and jump but they were just a little ‘off’. We returned Jazz to the vets where they checked his legs thoroughly and it became apparent that he has slightly impaired joints in his hind legs – there was no option for treatment and our vet believed it possible that they’d fully right themselves as he gets older – the problems were likely caused by poor nutrition coupled with rough treatment as a baby. Jazz is 8 months old now and his legs are, for the most part, perfectly fine – though he does throw them out in a funny way sometimes when he runs. And he does love to run! A little like Phoebe from the TV show ‘Friends’, he doesn’t care how his legs look, only that running is fun and he enjoys it!

Jazz is a beautiful dog, he has had such a harsh and unfair start in life but he never lets his past get him down – he lives fully in the present enjoying every day! We hope to secure a future full of love and joy for our boy, Jazz, could that future be with you? We urge you to meet Jazz if you a considering a new pet, you won’t be disappointed. He is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and has been treated against parasites. For more information or to arrange a viewing, please contact us!

Cats and Kittens!

We are over-run with absolutely gorgeous cats and kittens looking for good homes! These fabulous felines are currently available in all shapes and sizes, colours, ages and genders! All of our kittens are vaccinated and treated against parasites and once old enough they are neutered too. Someone once said that having a cat in the house is like owning a piece of living art and if you visit our cattery you too will believe that! For all queries about our cat (whom we affectionately call our little people in fur coats!) please contact Nikki on 087-2577182!
