Peenut - A Success Story
Otto was born in a INXS German Pinschers’ litter in 2011. The little chubby furball of joy went on to live with a family in Northumberland. During the recent economic downturn, the couple were unfortunately made redundant and had to relocate. In a devastating blow, their new home did not allow them to keep pets. One of the terms of his puppy contract was that Otto was to be returned to his breeder if his owners could not longer care for him. This is how Otto found his way back to Michelle and Ray Holliday.
Michelle and Ray delivered Otto to our home and there was laughter all round (and a huge sigh of relief) when my Min Pin - Kow put him in his place, right at the bottom of the pecking order. Michelle and Ray were always there to answer our questions, “How do we change his diet?“, “What do you feed yours?“, “How do we get his coat to shine?“, “How far do you go with the nail clippers?". The list was endless but they answered us with patience and were very reassuring that we were caring for him in the right way!
It is often said that adopting/fostering is a noble thing because you save them. In the experiences that I’ve had with adoption and fostering (over 13 years), I would say it’s most definitely a two way street, both my Pinschers have saved me as much as I’ve saved them. We look forward to all the adventures we will have with Nuts and all the lovely people we will get to know because of him.
