Well done to Deborah Anderson who fostered this little lady ....and to Poppy's new mummy Tanya .....A happy spoilt little dog by the looks of it ❤

Over a year ago I saw an appeal by Crosskennan Lane for fosterers for some wee Jack Russell's. I responded and ended up fostering Poppy. Poppy was a cruelty case having been left in a yard for 2 weeks fending for herself when her family moved and left her closed in! Despite that Poppy was a happy, good natured wee girl. Finn adored her! Here's a little clip of Poppy from a video I got tonight from Tanya ! Poppy is a much loved wee woman with 2 gorgeous human brothers! As Tanya said "let people see there are happy endings"

Massive thank you Lucy White for raising £50 for us by holding a bun & cake sale at her school. Lucy and her family are the adoptive family of Penelope, one of our rescued ponies and she also sent us this beautiful drawing of their new family member
