Lexie (Ace Delanna) has been with us since Friday. She arrived in Zaventem as a shy dog that was quite impressed of everything that has happened. Everyday she opens up a bit more. Her gigantic basket is sometimes not even big enough. Or she will choose to sit with us in the chair or lays down on the cool floor. Almost everyday she comes with us to visit her horse friends or enjoys a terrace. And soon we will visit Lily and Gill who were also adopted through Ace. Exciting!
For quite some time I was looking on the internet for a friend for our dog Bo, a sweet dog with lots of energy and a bit bossy towards other dogs. I visited the sites of the shelters in the Netherlands often. But it didn´t work out for different reasons, too big dogs, dogs who could not be home alone or dogs who were not good with children.
Best regards, Marleen & Kris
These are Yaco and Belle, who have been with us since november and december 2014. They have evolved from scared and shy dogs to happy, playful and lovable sweethearts. They are our babies that we couldn't miss anymore!
After living for 2 weeks with us, Jeroom (now Raoul) has adapted well. He has really become an essential part of our family. He is a super good and sweet dog. He obeys very well,he sits to get his paws cleaned after he has been outside. He never makes noise at night and he didn’t destroy anything.
We also adopted a dog via ACE-SHIN in January 2013: our English Cocker Spaniel O’Mali. He has really found his golden basket with us and he really loves to cuddle like you wrote in your description.
Bollie is doing very well, he is healthy, cheerful, he eats well, obeys well. I can take him everywhere with me. He lies down under my chair and when I walk him he is jumping around and wants to play with every dog. In the car he is quiet and he also sat in the bicycle basket. He is a treasure and I am very happy to have him.
At the site Evy was a cute dog of almost 2 years old, a bitch and she hadn’t lost her ‘trust’ in people. She arrived at the airport and I fell in love with this dog for the second time. Many things were still unknown and that makes it a gamble but also a challenge.
Yes, in September the dogs are living with us for 5 years! And I really hope the having to say goodbye will wait for a bit but the medication doesn't give us the result we were hoping for! The goodbye will always come too soon! But we have had 5 wonderful years! They always went everywhere with us, on holiday to Holland! And the day trips to the seaside! Also in Holland: the dog beach. They could run free there! I was hoping we could go to sea one more time but at the moment he is not fit enough. They are really super dogs and I haven't regretted for one moment that we aopted them. I have also been working with dog whisperer Birgitte Ginee, have a look on the site: Hondenfluisteraar.be and then look at the guest book where you will find our story, it has been from some time ago of course.
Here are some photo's of Nyssa (Ria). A dream dog beautiful inside and outside. A friend for everyone. In the beginning she was very scared of everyhting and everyone, now she can't cuddle fast enough. She even wants to play with our horse but he doesn't understand her crazy jumps and butt in the air :-)
Mother Gigi just arrived at the killing station when we were there, a dirty closed cardboard box. It was put into a corner, not knowing what was inside, we looked and discovered this little mother who looked at us with fearful eyes..................
Fabrice is doing fine! Still a sweetheart of a dog who loves to sit on your lap, is very quiet in the house but loves to race around in the park. He obeys very well, gets along great with the cat, he gets along great with everyone, he isn't scared like he was before, we can take him everywhere........Really a dream!
Do you remember me? I have lived with you in Spain for 2,5 years. Now I have been living for 9 months with my boss Rob and his wife Paula. I am doing very well and am very happy. Rob and Paula make sure that there is always someone at home during the day. And when that is not possible, I sleep nicely in my basket. Sometimes I lie on the pillow on the sofa. When Rob finds out he is angry with me. I know it is not allowed but it is very nice to lie on.......
The collecting (last Monday) of Cuddle went without problems. A bit late, but fine. I was back home at 3 o’clock in the morning. Cuddle has adapted completely to his new home only with the other 2 cats things are a bit rough. Everything in time and this will become fine. Cuddle is a real teddy bear but also naughty. I will have a lot of fun with him and I will keep you informed.
A little news about a lovely darling dog -our Minley, who waited so long for her for ever home, but never lost courage - a brave girl. Well now it has happened - Minley is home, where she belongs, with Charlotte, Maria and Bosnian rescue sister Anabel - and Minley moved right in - a little bit bossy at first towards Anbel, but after a few days she calmed dowm and understood that this great place is for keeps - and Anabel is not a competitor, but a cohabitor, a sister, best friend, playmate. This is not a shelter with soo many other dogs, but a home - our home Minleys and Anabels has to share..
Our Blimperke who is called Sky now, came to live with us on February 7th and has been doing well since day one! He is a wonderful house dog, is devoted and sweet, he is very inquisitive and enthusiastic! We are enjoying him every day.
Liseli (before Blimpie) has been living with us in Belgium for a few months now. She was thrown from a driving car in a cardboard box and has been looked after well in your shelter in Spain. She is now a wonderful dog without a complex but her coordination is not like it should be and she doesn’t see as well as other dogs. But that doesn’t bother her at all:
I can’t help myself, have to show you,...........Just look at our Stef,.........Soooo happy and sooooo forgotten in Spain a long time ago,……..Just look!!!
A short update about Quita. She is a wonderful dog and until now she only destroyed a newspaper and a magazine, that is allowed when you are an adolescent. She hasn’t been inside the bench yet, no need for that. She is fine on her own (until now she has been alone for not more than an hour).
Our Harry, together with other dogs, he was saved from the killing station. At first he was very upset and didn’t want to go on. He was sad and uncertain, afraid and locked inside himself,……..
We are Lima (Aurora) and Fausto, before the happy season Fausto ( the brown-white one) has told his story and I did this one year ago. Fausto had promised to tell you about the Christmas period but he is lazing on the sofa so I will do the job.
Thor is now 2 years and 3 months old and he is still our sweet, beautiful dog! During the summer holidays he went with us to Spain, he has been super good during the trip of 1300 km: in the beginning his head went up when we stopped at the peage but after some time he didn’t bother…..
August 26th, we collected Buddy from Schiphol. He was so afraid of all the new impressions. He peed in the car and then fell asleep on my lap. When we arrived home he was so happy and cheerful.
Since about 3 months we have adopted Bartje. When he arrived at Schiphol he was a skinny dog but quite cheerful. He has now nicely gained weight. He is happy and enthusiastic and naughty. We have taken him to a puppy course and he happily takes part. He is easily distracted but also learning.
Bobby is doing very well. In the beginning he was very scared and difficult or not approachable. He didn’t trust me. In the following weeks we left him alone and didn’t approach him too much. It went a bit better and he even dared to walk around a bit. Afterwards he had an enormous relapse.
My name is Fausto and I am living in Belgium since October 11th. When I was 3 months old I was found in the harbor of Algeciras by the people of SHIN. I was taken care of lovingly by the people of the shelter in Algeciras. After some time, 2 ladies came to visit. They took me and Garcia for a walk.
On April 13th, we greeted Milou in Eindhoven ( In Spain her name was Ami). She was very quiet and sweet, the first night in the bench was not a problem for her, she felt fine. The first 2 months she had some problems with her digestion and we visited the vet a few times. She was never sick and always wanted to play games and slowly it was going better.
