For most of you that know me you know I absolutely love animals, and have owned quite an array of different types of animals over the years, and the latest being our dog Carly.
Carly is a 4 year old Bitch Rottweiler who we rehomed back in September 2015 from a friend of a friend who could no longer look after her due to unforseen circumstances. We arranged to go and visit her one evening just to see what she was like etc… When the evening came to go and visit me and my partner tom, and his mum came with us to talk to the owner and find out her temperament, behaviour, health etc… Well it was love at first sight with her, she was perfect in every way house trained, used to be on her own while were at work and good with kids and other dogs.
After we made the decision to rehome her we picked her up a couple of days later on the friday so we could spend the weekend with her and get her settled in to her new home and surroundings.
She brings us so much happiness and laughter with all the funny things she does.
A lot of people think that Rottweiler are one of the dangerous dogs, which isn’t true because no dog is born dangerous it is how it is brought up and what it is taught, it is fair to say that Carly hasn’t got a nasty bone in her body. She great round the kids a good guard dog and just a great companion a very loyal and loving dog.
She loves playing in the park and running around burning energy off, she’s been out in all weather, rain, snow, sun and wind and loves it.
We spoil her like we would kids with toys and treats etc. she has got quite a strong jaw we have to be sure to get her strong toys that she can’t destroy easily and we found the perfect ones in Pets at home, but they were in the sale so bargain.
When you come in from work and have had a bad day or feeling a little under the weather Carly will always without fail make you smile, running up to you when you get home and bringing you a toy to play with.
Christmas time we had only had her a few months so treated her to an advent calendar and some new toys and maybe decorated her with tinsel while putting the tree up.
Nearly 12 months on she is amazing, settled in great and an absolute joy to have around the house.
Have you rehomed animals? Would love to hear your story.
