Toffee is an absolute treasure

Posted by Nerilie Watson on 24 May 2012 | 6 Comments


Hi all! Firstly I'd like to apologise for this email coming 3 1/2 weeks after picking up our absolute treasure Toffee, or as you knew her, Ja'mie.

To say Toffee has made us happy is such an understatement. She has been an absolute gem when it comes to training and behaving herself in general and the love she has given back to us is immeasurable. She has the most amazing gentle nature even though she has obviously had a tough life so far, unfortunately cowering at anything raised near her. Although it took a little time to get to trust us and all the new goings-on in her new surroundings, she has come leaps & bounds and loves nothing more than a good cuddle and belly scratch and is our shadow around the house. She loves to let you know she wants a scratch by putting her head on your lap and when she looks at your with those big brown eyes, how can you resist?!?



My sister-in-law hit the nail on the head when she said "It must be love - nothing gets you up at 5.30am to exercise". She was absolutely right. We are completely and utterly head over heels in love with our beautiful girl and she makes us smile every single day!


Thank you to all the staff at Shenton Park that assisted us. You do an amazing job and we thank you for giving these beautiful dogs a second chance at life and for making all of us owners very happy people!

Chris, Patrice & Toffee
