Hamish and Fergus were rescued from the edge of a village where they had been living off scraps of food for over a week. Although the locals had tried to catch them the puppies were like little eels and were worried for their safety if people came too close. After days of trying, finally someone was able to capture them and take them to the safety of a foster home. Here, they have continued to make fantastic progress ever since.
When the puppies were first rescued they were very timid and wouldn't approach people, even if treats were on offer. They craved the safety of one another and didn't trust humans, likely stemming from their abandonment. However, after a few days the pups seemed to realise they were no longer in danger, and their characters blossomed. Hamish barked with excitement when being fed his breakfast and the pair learned how exciting breakfast time was and the value of biscuits. Before long to the pair had absolutely zero worries and have continued to build bonds with their rescuers. He is very loving and gentle, adores playing and is a typical enthusiastic, clumsy puppy.
We are looking for an adopter with a relatively active lifestyle, lots of love to give, a desire to train (as Hamish is very smart and eager to please) and a home with a garden, as he loves to play. Hamish is socialised with other dogs and are young enough to be integrated successfully with children.
