For JD, The only way is Essex!

A COUPLE holidaying in Beckermet returned home to Essex with an extra pet – thanks to a dog rescue feature in The Whitehaven News.
Anne and Mike Yaxley say they instantly fell in love with JD, the collie cross which was being looked after at the Tutehill Rescue and re-homing Centre at Pica.
Mrs Yaxley said: “We looked at the paper on the Saturday morning while we were in our holiday cottage. We saw the picture in the paper and we just looked at each other.
“We went up to see JD and asked if we could have him. We left him in the kennels until we were leaving to go home.
“He gets on really well with our dog, Toby. We are delighted with him. He fits in so well, it’s like we’ve had him for a long time.
“We have a lot of off-road paths where we live and JD is very eager. He responds very quickly to you. He is a soft touch, he likes a fuss made over him.”
Sharon Rogers, of Tutehill, says following the article about the centre a number of animals have been re-homed. The Staffordshire bull terrier Dodger, now called Dude, was re-homed, as well as Rex, who is a rottweiler cross ridgeback. Three of the kittens also have new homes to go to.
Mrs Rogers said two of the dogs featured in the piece, Jet the Patterdale terrier and Milo the black lurcher cross, were re-homed the day before The News went to press.
