Denny and Bella are best buds

Posted by Nerilie Watson on 6 March 2013 | 5 Comments


We wanted to let you know how well Denny has settled into his new home as you can see from the photos he is very happy!!


He loves toys and playing tug o war with anyone that will play. He loves the kids and has made a very strong bond with our 9 yr daughter. Denny has some lovely manners (mostly) thanks to the staff and volunteers at Shenton Park and is learning some new tricks also. Amber has taught him to shake and is working on drop and rolling over. We especially like that he sits and waits ever so patiently for his dinner and won’t eat until he is told.

As you can see from the photos it is impossible to turn the hose on without Denny wanting to get involved, he loves his walks with Bella (out 14 yr old staffy cross) and runs with his new dad.

Sadly, we lost our 14 yr old Border Collie in October 2012 (who was from the refuge home in November 1999 – Morgan) and our little staffy cross, Bella, has struggled  since then but now Denny is around Bella is a different dog, she loves running around the park with Denny and will even have a play with Denny (on her terms). Denny has been a fantastic addition to our household and we are looking forward to many fun years with him and his quirky ways.

  • Denny is has the sweetest nature he loves socialising with the other dogs at the park and is ever so gentle (apart from playing tug :-)). It's hard to believe that he was at the refuge for such a long time....we will have to bring him in for a visit soon.

  • Denny was one of my favourites, I played and took him for walks every Sunday he is such a character, so glad he has settled in as I have been thinking about him and now he has found his forever home. Thanks for the update.
