Pancho (ACE Fletske 11073)

Since February 2016, Pancho has been with his new bosses, who got in touch to let us know that he is doing very well! "He is a real sweetheart and we are very happy with him. Occasionally he's a bit naughty, but that's a lot of fun. We notice that he is often afraid of noises, and being left alone but he soon gets over it after a little while. We love Pancho and cannot imagine being without him! "

Thanks for everything!

Arrivals, Rotterdam - May 18th

Good morning,

Yesterday our dog arrived in Rotterdam, together with two other dogs. We took some pictures of the arrival. Maybe you'd like to use them for your blog.

Unfortunately, we do not have any pictures of the little Daschund because it was not taken out of the cage when we took the photos.

Luna, formerly Flora

Luna's (ACE Flora) bosses want to let you know that Luna is doing great. He's a sweet, affectionate dog with a will of his own. Great! Recently we moved to a neighborhood that is in the middle of the "green" - the countryside - and here the dogs have found their paradise. There are a lot of sheep here, so also a lot of fun. Though she really loves to roll! She is also healthy and active.

In short: we would not want to be without her, she's a treasure of a dog.

Yogi, ... looking down from the mountain at his beloved family, ...

Yogi was born in a small Spanish village, he was adopted by a young couple when he was a cute little puppy. He was their boyfriend, their great darling, ...

Yogi, a mini Bodeguero was the king of the house ... he was in his home and thought that
this would go on forever, but one day the wife, his mistress, became pregnant,

What now ?

I often think that getting pregnant in this country one of the worst diseases is that you can come across because the doctor said that from now on all pets had to leave the house ... pets are very dangerous when you are pregnant, so the message was ... ..Yogi had to leave.

Because his wife wasn't happy about it she had the idea of putting Yogi to live on top of the mountain where they lived, so they could see him, and Yogi could see them. And so since the little dog was banned from living with his bosses, he now looked down from the mountain at his at his once beloved home.

The people in the village saw all this and found it terrible for the dog, but could not and did not want to confront his owners... and soon they got used to the situation. Yogi grieved, he became skeletal and
had no muscle mass anymore ... day and night he looked down at his family, at their comings and goings. His food was put down to him every few days.

He deteriorated ... his courage went gradually but finally it went completely. A Belgian lady eventually managed to rescue Yogi from his chain and from the sad mountain and so this lovely dog ​​came to us. He has no muscle mass in his hind legs, is very skinny but is so happy to be gone - his heart was broken. He is so sweet and cuddly. He looks at you out of his beautiful eyes he doesn't look sad or confused. For him from now on, it just gets better.

Madeleine - Raya

It was time so we went looking for a dog again. After a while, it became clear that we had fallen for Madeleine! (We called her Raya)

We quickly contacted A.C.E. We still had some questions because we already have 2 dogs and 4 cats.
Madeleine (Raya) was still in Spain so we could not easily get to know her. But it just had to be this dog so the adoption protocol was initiated.

We were very well informed and so the wait begain. Then there was the long awaited call, she could come on January 5th on a flight from Spain and tso we counted down the days.

Finally, the day arrived that we could come to the airport to pick her up. And yes, the plane landed and there she was! What a beautiful sweet big dog came out of the travel cage, was she really ours? We had chosen her but what did she think of us? That soon became clear, she walked straight up to us in a straight line and it was a match.

Throughout the procedure, everything was handled by the fantastic employees of A.C.E. Now into the car and off to her new house that, of course, would also be her home. In the meanwhile we had given her another name, she is now Raya. She thought everything was a bit exciting, but she behaved well.

Once home we were very curious to see how she would respond to the pussy cats and the pussy cats to her. Fortunately, this also went without a hitch.

Our other dogs also responded well to Raya and Raya to them. The first night I decided to sleep downstairs on a mattress in the living room because then I could keep a close eye on her and could possibly support her that after a thrilling day.

I had only been lying under my duvet for 2 minutes when I felt that Raya had come close to me. We stayed like that all the night, both enjoying each other's proximity.

In the beginning, it was a bit difficult for us to leave her but she soon was used to it.After 3 weeks she was already going to the park after we first practiced on a field line.We have also already attended a course at the Dog Association and, after a practice, she has been following the bike. All in all, she is a model dog, so faithful and so sweet. We also get a lot of responses from people who really want to know what kind of dog we have and what kind of breed it is, of course we tell that it's an adoption dog and that there are many more dogs waiting for a home. She is also crazy about water, we go very often to the dog beach where she can frolic with her friends and girlfriends.

From the very first moment she is already part of our lives, we are so happy with her. And we would like to thank all those who are committed to giving these wonderful sweet dogs a future.

A lot of love from Piet, Linda and Raya
