'I’ve always been a dog lover, but was unsure about getting another. You see I lost my last dog Meg, a Border Terrier, about 2 and a half years ago and was completely devastated when she died and I was unsure whether I could go through that kind of pain again. But it then occurred to me that there’s so much joy out of having a dog and the good times far outweigh the bad times.
Nikki was often sending me pictures of dogs that needed a home, but I would always say that they were far too big and only wanted a small dog. Then just over a year ago Nikki sent me a picture of Jess, a small dog, with mad hair and so cute, just what I was looking for, so I immediately said yes.
When Jess first arrived she was so nervous and shy of everything and everyone, but with time and patience and a lot of love she has found her feet and settled in. Jess loves all other dogs and has such fun over the park playing with her many friends. It takes Jess a long time to trust people, but once she does she is full of love and affection for you. I always say she’s such a funny little dog, almost human like, there’s something very special about her. I think she may always be a little nervous of new people, but I’m not bothered by this, the love I get from her is immeasurable and I love her to bits.'
