Keiren has settled really quickly into our family life. He loves his motorhome trips and holidays! He gets several walks a day but is not free running yet due to his fast sprint when he sees a bird, squirrel, rabbit or cat! We are starting to get used to having ‘snow’ in the house from […]

Lizzie Lizzie was one of the ISBC Rescue litter of 2015. She was a gorgeous puppy and has grown into a lovely girl. Love her to bits…



Flynn Flynn came to us in December 18, having come from a puppy farm. He had virtually no contact with humans, he was so frightened and totally shut down. If we spoke or stroked him he had a wee and was terrified of going outside. Luckily Molly, our 18 month old Irish took him under […]



Kensa, we got her a year past January from Karen at Irish Setter Rescue & Rehome, she was a timid shy girl when we got her with hardly any confidence, with lots of patience and love she has grown into the beautiful, confident and loving girl we have today, the care and support given by […]



We adopted a very thin, scared Ronnie (other half of the Ron and Reg pin up puppies-red collar) from ISRANDR.  Ronnie developed cherry eye, had an infection of the cornea and then entropian in both eyes. Poor baby…so painful. He got through it and is now a very healthy, happy two year old who lives […]

Polly “Polly came to me as a foster in 2015. She had been brought over from Ireland and had not had a very happy life! She quickly settled in and it didn’t take me long to decide to keep her. She’s a great hunter with zero recall but is such a loving little madam that […]
