Rosie – born in January 2003 and rescued from the RSPCA in September 2003. She was brought to them in Swansea at the age of 3 months because she wasn’t house trained! Did the owners think this happened naturally? She also chewed things – well, who ever heard of a puppy doing that? She was clearly in distress in the refuge – shut in a cage about one metre by two. I was against the adoption as, even in a larger pen, she was still distressed. When we took her round the place on a lead she jumped up to lick Evan’s ‘muzzle’ (he is over 6 feet tall …) and made his nose bleed. So that was that, we had to have her!
