We hope you will enjoy looking into the Samtastic world of The Fluffters
We have Fostered Samoyeds in the past waiting for a loving home but we Foster any breed when we can. Our dogs are pets - we do not show or enter serious competitions with them but do attend lots of Charity or fun dog shows which we enjoy very much.
Coney, Angel, Kaylie, Kirby, Nova, Alfie, Merli, Kiki, Ruby Vinnie, Button, Eddie,Penny,Noodle, Bertie Nola and Pepe are very loyal, loving and well-behaved dogs....Most of the time! We have - and always will - pay them very special attention despite being called NUTS and a lot worse! - they have a strong routine (which we believe to be important) especially so in the early days of a rescue dog’s new life with you. It's been a lot of work and effort with Some of our dogs to get them any where near being normal happy trusting dogs but it's been worth every moment when we look at the fantastic results we have had.
We think our dogs need to know where they stand and learn from you what is expected of them from the word go - without any confused messages. We made our minds up what would be and stuck to it including working with unwanted behaviour. Kaylie our Samoyed and Kirby our Westie were the only two dogs that came to us more or less problem free the rest had issues such as deep rooted fear issues, aggression toward other dogs, biting us, separation issues, lack of confidence, could not walk on leads, no basic training or understanding of even very basic commands, fear of men, no house training, general fear of the outside world and strangers. We have also dealt with what we would call nerve realated ticks such as constant checking of the same part of their body, grinding of teeth and shaking of the head while chewing thin air!
We sure have had many problems along the way as most of our dog's were not ready made pet dog's but we tackled problems one at a time, with a great deal of patience kindness and Training ..... we say and know you can teach ‘an old dog new tricks’ but there is not always a quick fix. We enjoy every day we spend with our beautiful dogs - they make us very, very proud indeed
Giving a Rescue Dog a home is so very rewarding seeing their trust faith and love in you build and develop is an amazing experience and one we hope to have over and over again.
The black and white Collie you see in some photo's is Rio he was such a wonderful Boy but despite our very best efforts we could not keep Rio and he was re homed. Re homing Rio left me broken I don't give up easily and he was a very special Boy.
Very sadly we lost our Coney Bear on the 18th April 2006
The 19th Dec 2009 our Kaylie went to sleep
she was our last original Fluffter and the reason for this website
On the 3rd Oct 2010 very unexpectedly we lost our Nova my doggie soul mate
