The Genius of Dogs

We often think of evolution as being the survival of the fittest, where the strong and the dominant survive and the soft and weak perish. But essentially, far from the survival of the leanest and meanest, the success of dogs comes down to survival of the friendliest.

Most likely, it was wolves that approached us, not the other way around, probably while they were scavenging around garbage dumps on the edge of human settlements. The wolves that were bold but aggressive would have been killed by humans, and so only the ones that were bold and friendly would have been tolerated.

Run free

Nico, Flora, Roger and Tom - Always and forever in our hearts.

We united with dog lovers worldwide for the annual “Remember me” awareness campaign. Here at the home we remembered all dogs that have died in kennels through illness or simply old age and especially the four that died in the Manchester Dogs Home fire.

Bring on the Wall....

Eddie's walk along Hadrian's Wall

Eddie will dog walk from coast to coast following the World Heritage Site of Hadrian's Wall, past Roman settlements and forts to raise much needed funds to help lost dogs.

Starting at Sededunum Roman fort in Wallsend, going through the empty landscapes of Northumberland and then on to Cumbria, he will finish at the mouth of the River Solway amidst the outstanding natural beauty of the Solway Firth.
