Lyn and Dave Evans
Bouncer , a stary Jack Russell, was living in a shelter in Wales, near the area where I used to live. Having lost my previous dog at 14 and a half years old I was ready to give a loving home to another one and I wanted a 'rescue'' from 'Ty Agored' or 'Open House', the shelter's English translation. As soon as I saw his picture I knew he was the 'one' and we set off to fetch him home, a journey of two hundred miles.
He's suffered a broken hip and pelvis which we're told was allowed to heal without the help of a vet, so he's on permanent medication. But apart from walking with a bit of a 'waddle' you'd never know there was anything wrong with him, he's so lively and full of fun. A sweeter, more affectionate little dog would be hard to find. I can't believe how forgiving rescued animals are, when yoiu think what they've suffered in the past. He's certainly made himself part of the family and repays us with his love and cute ways every day.
