Abbie’s Rescue Diary

Abbie’s Rescue Diary

Hi, im Abbie and im 12 years of age, living in County Kerry. I love all dogs and have wanted my very own puppy for a long time and this is my adoption story.

April 2020

After many months of begging, pleading and bribing my parents to get me a puppy they finally said “YES”. We looked at a lot of websites and shelters when eventually we found a litter of puppies that had been brought into Sera Huskey, we had to make sure that they were the right breed because we already have another dog at home.

2nd May 2020

A few weeks had gone by and it was time to see the puppies. My dad and uncle went to Sera Huskey to see the puppies. Maurice from Sera Huskey then said that my dad could bring me and my sister in to pick one of the puppies another day. I was so excited.

So the Saturday arrived when it was time to see the pup. After lunch we all hopped into the car and went to Lisselton to see the puppies. I loved all of them but one of them really caught my eye, he was black and brown and really sweet. Sadly we had to leave a little while later but when we got home at dinner that evening, my dad told me that someone would be coming the first or second week in June around my birthday, to bring the puppy home. I was so happy, my dream was coming true.

Today I went around asking everyone for a good name and a lot of people agreed with BOOTS because his tiny paws were brown so he looked like he had boots on. I also thought that it went well with the name of our family dog “LOLA”.

Today my Dad and I fixed up a new outside pen for Boots, so that he would be safe if i was busy or didn’t have time to play with him or bring him indoors. We fixed up a corner in the back with a bed and shelter from the rain.

My mom came home after work today and sat me down and told me that BOOTS was being dropped off tomorrow. Luckily we had gone to Pet Mania in the morning and bought a new lead, a dog bed and some new bowls.

9th June 2020

The day finally arrived. Boots was brought to my house at 2pm today. I couldn’t contain my excitement. I took Boots from my my mom and started to cuddle him straight away. He is so adorable. I introduced him to our dog Lola and Boots was very excited to see another dog. Lola was a bit unsure. After Maurice had finished explaining all about the pup, he left to re-home more dogs and BOOTS was mine. I spent the day playing with Boots, and after he was so tired he slept for hours.
