Letters to Mutts
It's great to hear from people who have given a home and a family to one of our dogs. Here are some of the letters we've received.
Shane has now been living with us for over 4 weeks . He has been checked by the vet and behaved perfectly while there.
He has become a huge part of our family loved by all. He has long walks in the countryside, where he is making lots of friends and their owners
constantly tell us how he is changing daily into the perfect companion. He goes obedience training weekly, where he received a star last week!
We never knew how much pleasure a dog could bring to a family, the love he shows us is very humbling and we return it to him constantly. We would like to thank all at Mutts In Distress for allowing us to take on Shane and hope to keep in touch with the team.
Hello, it’s me Oscar.
Here I am, happy in my new home, having a cuddle with my new Dad.
We rehomed a rescue dog from you nearly two years ago called Phillip. He is a Staffie cross. We were
wondering if you would like to see how much he loves his life and see some photos of him in his
homes both here and in Spain!
This is Phillip now called Tommy, who is a serious Daddy’s boy and he has bought so much into our lives.
Here is Chris the Fat Fish, your first rescue fish !
As you can see, he’s settled very well and has made lots of friends and is very happy. He has a bit of a food
issue, (as in wants to eat it all) but we will work on that because he seems to be getting very fat.
Hello all at Mutts In Distress,
My name is Jessie (you would have known me as Abbi). I have settled in well with my new family, finally got them to behave as I want them to! We had a few problems when I first moved in, I was not too sure about going to the toilet in the garden or park. That’s all under control now. Today we went to the Greyhound & Lurcher show at Great Notley Country Park and I met lots of new friends. Thank you all for looking after me so well, while I was waiting for my new family to pick me up. Good luck to all the other dogs staying with you at the moment, I am sure they will all find homes as good as mine. Love Jessie xx
Hello Mutts in Distress,
I would like to inform you that one of your long term residents, Lara the Boxer dog, who we took on nearly four years ago, has passed away.
Lara was ten years old when we took her on, reaching almost fourteen, she had done so well in a loving home and was adored.
She had such a wonderful life and brought us so much happiness. We took her to many places and she experienced lots of things, regularly going paddling in our nearby rivers and retrieving huge rocks.
She was truly an amazing dog and we feel blessed to have been part of her life. We miss her so much.
The work you do is so important and rewarding, giving all your dogs a new home and the chance to be loved again makes me happy. Thank you for giving us the chance to make a difference to Lara’s life, we will never forget her. If you need any volunteer work done at Mutts, I’d be happy to help out.
Gary and Mandie.
Jackson, we think, is approx 16 years old. He came to us in March 2011 from Mutts in Distress, where he had been for 14 months having been abandoned sometime in December 2009.
During his time with us, he has survived 2 bouts of cancer and although he is now rather stiff and has fading eyesight he still enjoys life. He loves to go for gentle walks and plays when in the mood. He adores pottering round his garden and still loves his food, especially cocktail sausages which he was first given during his time at “Mutts”.
Jackson is a lovely old gent, he is very happy, safe and knows how much he is loved.
