Sian adopted Rue: "Being a part of the charity for 2 years now, I have visited Cyprus a fair few times, and each time, you want to bring a dog back with you. This year a visited and fell in love with a dog called "Lulu" who I had re-named Dotty. She was due to come home in June/July, but sadly, passed away suddenly. The support and love I received from the team was not only admirable, it was a huge help. I was an adopter who lost her pup. It didn't matter I was apart of the team. Time went on and I wasn't actively looking for another dog, I had three as it was and a cat. I was still heartbroken over Dotty, so I carried on trying to do my part in the team. Then, one day, a puppy popped up, sad eyes that had a story to tell already at such a young age. You know when a dog is supposed to be with you, you just know. She was found in a busy road in Cyprus, so tiny and vulnerable, all on her own. So, my 3 were about to grow to 4. I put a deposit down straight away. She reminded me of Dotty. So, Rue was on her way to be with my family. The month of her flight, our puppies contracted Parvo, which is highly contagious. We lost 3 puppies, and I felt dread thinking of Rue. Surely enough, events repeated themselves and Rue was rushed to the vet, with parvo. I was told she was fighting, but of course, the disease is so fierce her little body may not manage to fight it off. I spent a while waiting, hoping. I had updates from the team in Cyprus (who went out of their way to give me info and visit and send me photos to keep me high spirited) the vets were amazing sending me little snippets of information, and I then received the most amazing news that she was eating again, and she got to come home! Sitting on Jodie's little girls lap. The team work tirelessly, and helped me, regardless of whether I am part of the team or not, to keep me updated, to help Rue, and to make her better. Rue came home last night, my Husband (who isn't as much of a dog lover admittedly) and I picked her up, and it's as if she has always been here! I have caught my husband playing with her, playing guitar to her, and chatting to her, so I think she has made an impression on him! She has met the 3 other pooches (2 of which are Jodie's rescues too!), the family, and the cat, and it couldn't have gone better! She is a cheeky, hyper, playful ball of fun and I cannot stop smiling looking at her. A pooch that not too long ago may not have had such a happy story, is now in a warm, comfy, loving home where she will be forever, with her new adoptive brothers and sister. There are SO many dogs out there, ALL deserving. If you are ever considering adoption, my advice, go for it. If you have the room and love to give, do it. You will never regret it. The love and happiness you get from a once lost soul is humbling. I am sat here, with my pup sat by my side sleeping peacefully, I can't think of anything better! "
