You may remember earlier in the year I posted an appeal for a forever home for Podenco Rene, who sounded the perfect hound. Well, good news, his forever home has been found. Here is the update from Polly Mathewson.
'Happy, happy, happy news for our sweet Rene podenco -
RENE HAS A FAMILY AT LONG LAST. It's been such a long wait for Rene to find his forever home with lots of false starts over several years since we saved this beautiful, cheeky, gentle soul from a terrifying fate in the pound in Spain: too often the tragic circumstances of this most abandoned and abused of breeds.
Happily Rene has been so well cared for and loved in his foster-kennels with Becky Reed and Allison Reid since then, all my heartfelt thanks to them for giving him such safety and fun with their other rescue dogs, and I know they will miss him a lot. But it is the best news that Rene will be moving to a family of his own this December when his forever Mum Deborah Ashton retires and she and Steve are going to give him the loveliest life imaginable: lots of walks in the Lake District, trips off in their new caravan (Rene fans know how he loves a road trip), a sofa to nestle on and a big garden, and above all so much love for this most affectionate of lads.
