Welcome to The Spotted Dog


My name is Kenobi ( not Obi-Wan “Ben” Kenobi that is a fictional character ) I am a real person and want to tell you my story to make you understand that with a little faith, hope and charity a dogs life can change forever.


The story didn’t start too well, athough I was on a beautiful island called Lanzarote, I had no ‘real’ home and ended up in a cage!


cage


Even though I spent 12 months living there one person called Nuria had faith in me and never gave up trying to find my ‘forever sofa’.


Nuria tried to make sure every one knew about my situation, puting my picture on a thing called ‘Facebook’ and even a moving picture on somthing else called ‘Youtube’. This did get humans interested in me but after three failed attempts at getting me a family things were looking bleak.


Then I was ‘Spotted’ by humans who already had a family but had lost a Dalmatian and though I looked really handsome.


The problem was that I was over 1500 kilometres from their home, not to mention a wide expanse of ocean!


Nuria was convinced that this was a problem that could be solved and set to work finding a solution.


With some generous help from friends the funds were arranged and my flight booked but that's where my story begins please follow me through my blog and see how my life is changing.

    Paddys owners took him to our vets to be killed because he had become an inconvenience to them as they were returning home to the UK (disgusting, disgraceful people). As Paddy is healthy and has absolutely no issues, our vet refused to kill him and called Colleen the owner of our shelter, who went and collected him. Sheri Bowditch and Sue Birmingham have stepped up to take him to the UK and find him a home. With Becky Sweetman Cbdh permission we can now ask you to help with transport costs to get him there. Sheri has already donated €120 so we just need another €130. We will get a passport done for him. It restores my faith in humans that people who never met this lovely boy are prepared to help him when the person who owned him for 7 years just didnt. Paddy you are about to get a much better home than the one you have known. Thank you so much everyone. paypal paradisekennels@live.com
