This is my rescued Jack Russell, Bouncer.

Before he was taken in by the shelter where I adopted him from, he'd been ill treated and had a broken hip and pelvis which had been allowed to heal without a vet! Consequently he's on daily medication, but a sweeter, more affectionate and happy little dog it would be hard to find. He gives me so much love and filled the hole left by my previous little dog.

I would urge anyone who is looking for a dog, to consider adopting a 'rescue'. They are so rewarding and the love they give is amazing considering what some of them have been through - and you might be saving a little life as the shelters are so full dogs that cannot be found homes are often euthanased - their only crime is that they had no one to love and care for them!

I have 5 dogs. All of our dogs have been rescued with the exception of our latest addition. I am a big believer in rescued pets being grateful for the love and affection after the life they may have led. Congratulations, Hywela. Bouncer is a cutie.

Thanks Kimberley. Yes Bouncer is a real sweetheart and gives so much love and affection - as you say, rescued pets show their gratitude and by returning the love 101 per cent!

Aw thanks MM. You know as much as anyone, the love these rescues give each and every day, having four rescued dogs yourself! I am so thankful that Bouncer found us!

And Sabby - so sorry I missed your comment before, thank for your kind comment. Licks to all, from Bouncer. (He does the lick bit well!)
