    My OH and myself have adopted a Toy Poodle called William.
    He is 10 years old and is a dream.
    He was once owned by a lady in her 80's who could not longer keep her best friend,due to illness.
    So we thought about William and took him on for a weeks trial.
    Now William has been a lap dog and never lived in a pack.
    I have 6 other large dogs,but they are all gentle souls.
    William gets on fine but is in charge now.
    He has lots of nice walks and just enjoys being with the other dogs.
    Elmo is his best friend the odd couple.
    Also the lady has now come out of hospital after 3 months and is in a care home.
    We took William to visit her last week and it was a beautiful reunion.
    We will do it again soon.
    Here's a few pic's of the little chap.

    Such a shame for the woman to have to give up her best friend but it's really nice you took him to see her :)

    He's lovely, he and Elmo look so happy together. It's really nice of you to have taken him on and to take him to visit his old owner, I bet it makes a world of difference to her.

    What a lovely thing you've done! I bet his owner is so happy he's found such a wonderful home, what a heartbreaking situation for her but with the best outcome. He's absolutely gorgeous..one of my wish list dogs!!! ;)
