When Watson was rescued from the Waimak pound he had an entropion (an inverted eyelid) which would need surgery before he was re-homed. His surgery went well and Watson proved to be a lovely dog who is great with children, after he recovered he was put up for adoption. K9 Rescue & Rehoming’s Trisha recieved many enquiries for Watson but found one from Laura, who was to be a first time dog owner. Laura visited with her 2 young children and it was decided Watson would go on trail for 2 weeks. After a few days Laura got first time nerves and wasn’t sure if she could keep Watson but after a visit from Trisha, who reassured her that she was doing a great job, Watson soon became an integral part of the family and now Laura describes him as her “dream dog”.

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.
