but in the middle of all that running about.....
today I am looking after our new family member Shannon!
She is a rescue from the RSPCA East Lancashire branch. Her mum is a cruelty case which was just concluded with the previous owner getting a prison sentence. She was rescued with her 9 wk old pups, Shannon and Tommy her brother who were looked after at Althams RSPCA.
My Mum & Dad went to look for a small, quiet, house trained little dog but Shannon was off out for a walk with one of the staff when they arrived and they just took one look at her big brown doleful eyes and promptly fell in love!
Shes a lurcher cross with a bull terrier we were told but since some people have mentioned she looks like a border collie. She is very loving and likes a cuddle but still needs house training and can be spooked by anything and everything having spent all of her life in kennels.
So as much as we love and miss Charlie and no one can replace our special boy we are blessed with the character that is Shannon the lurcher!
She is absolutely beautiful wish us luck!
