NOODLE UPDATE – ADOPTION(s) SUCCESSFUL
Iggy & Noodle are living the dream… literally dancing on rainbows 🌈
Iggy, the sweet little 6-year-old female Staffy, and Noodle a darling little 7-year-old male Foxy x Chihuahua, were surrendered to BDR around the same time. Iggy was used to and needed doggie companions, whereas Noodle had always been an only-boy.
Enter Lesley & Brian, whose adored little terrors, Roy & Vincent (also adopted from CAWI) had recently passed away from ancient-age. Lesley & Brian were keen to rescue/adopt 2 more dogs.
After successfully introducing Noodle to Lesley & Brian, Noodle’s surrenderer to Lesley & Brian, Iggy to Lesley & Brian, Iggy’s surrenderer to Lesley & Brian and finally Noodle to Iggy – Lesley & Brian were thrilled to trial-adopt both Noodle & Iggy.
There were some hurdles to overcome – Iggy’s frustration with Noodle’s jealousy and only-child syndrome and Noodle’s jealousy and unwillingness to share and only participate in non-interactive parallel-play (a kindergarten phenomenon).
With Lesley’s teaching skills and Brian’s ‘she’ll be right patience’ – Iggy & Noodle doggedly began to interrelate until inevitability they became “best buddies” who now enjoy, frolic, sit, snuggle and sleep together.
The “gang of four” now adore life’s simple joys galore 😍🐚
Little miss ‘Iggy’ is a bit of a special case. She’s a 5-year-old desexed English Staffy, absolute sweetie-pie.
She was rescued 3 years ago from an utterly dire situation – kept in a box, starved and beaten with a hose.
Since then Iggy has been in heaven, living with 3 other doggie companions and her caring BDR rescue family. She is tiny for a Staffy due to her horrific beginning in life and she suffers from epileptic fits if fed any foods with a sugar content.
She loves people (say I, with tears rolling down my face 😢), adores cuddles, the beach & playing fetch. Iggy is faithful, obedient and gets on with other dogs, cats, chickens – you name it.
Her family are loathe to part with her, but 4 dogs is simply to hard to handle with new life commitments. Iggy would do well with someone kind & caring who will enjoy her, snuggled up next to them on the couch, with another dog for companionship if she has to be left alone.
