We have had rescue dogs for 20 years, we have 3. A Segugio Italiano from Canada, a Whippet from Ireland and a Segugio Italiano from Greece. It is not always easy, in fact it can be a pain in the arse. Mary came to us about 4 months ago, she has canine Leish. We were very worried about this. Lots of foreboding stuff online about it! "it's fine and so is Mary" The fab Malin spent days helping us and Skyping us about it. I drove hundreds of miles to pick Mary up and brought her home to Kent in the UK. It was not easy, she got us up at 4 am to go out, she attacked our older Segugio and cost us a fair few quid at the vets. Yet again Malin talked us through it. To be honest I knew the answer, I was just emotionally blind because it was our old girl Ruby. The truth is, that 4 months on, Mary is so much part of our family, I cannot understand how we lived without her.
She is so cute and loving and helps with the gardening all the time!
"I love gardening and find Mary's nose in everything I do!"
She rolls over every time I walk past her, squidges her nose up and kicks her legs up to say hello. She loves our friends and our Granddaughter when they come around. She still flinches when we reach out to give her a pat on the head. "this makes us very sad, we would never hurt her" But she has the look of a dog who knows she has found her forever home. She has learned to love and be a lot more loving of our old girl Ruby, loves the skinny Whippet and the deaf cat. Mary has brought a whole new life to our family and I know she feels loved and wanted in sunny Kent. We have fab river and marsh walks on our doorstep. Mary has had a hard life and we have had a few up's and down's with her joining our family. 4 months on, we have a beautiful Segugio Italiano who sleeps all night down stairs, loves our friends and family, fits in with our pack, and put a smile on our face with her antics every day.
We have an Elpida dog, we made a small difference by welcoming a dog to our home. But the truth is, we welcomed a whole new bunch of fun and love into our life. If you are thinking “should I”? my advice is; "if you care, if you can be a little patient and if you want a little four legged love in your life" welcome to the Elpida family.
