When Trisha found Grubb at the Waimak Pound waiting for a second chance at a forever home he couldn’t walk, he would crawl along the floor on his belly, hence they called him Grubb. She could see he was soft natured and well mannered. The only downside? He was black and as with Beau and Maverick’s story it would be likely to take a long time to re-home him. Indeed it ended up taking 6 months, but during that time his foster carers found he was a great dog, loving the company of children and a whole host of other animals, cats, chickens and horses as well as other dogs.

Grubb couldn’t have found a better home than with Cristal & Paul. His daily walks to the river, park or lake usually end up in a game of hide and seek, which Grubb loves. He’ll often visit Cristal for lunch with Paul and he’s always learning new tricks. “He has perfected the art of lying on the couch with one foot on the floor, as that’s not counted as being ON the couch!” Cristal says. He’s also learning to ride in their motorbike’s side car.

If you want to know more about K9 Rescue & Rehoming and the work they do, check out their website or Facebook page. I am continuing to offer my services to K9 Rescue by photographing some of the dogs available for adoption. I believe that good photographs of these rescue animals are becoming increasingly important. Less people are visiting rescue centres now that they can see who’s up for adoption online and if the animals personality doesn’t shine through in that image, they aren’t going to get a second chance. Keep your eyes on my Facebook page, you might just fall in love with one of these deserving souls.
