Having grown up with a huge range of animals from hamsters and rabbits to dogs and horses, I have always had an enormous passion for all things 4 legged! All my dogs have been rescue dogs and I take huge pleasure out of rehabilitating them and seeing them enjoy the best life I can possibly offer them. I enjoy the challenges so much that, I began fostering boxer dogs for various boxer rescues, these dogs came from a whole range of situations but inevitably, they each had their individual behavoural and health hurdles to overcome. I loved nothing better than working with these dogs and, eventually, seeing them trot off to their new owners knowing they would now be safe and forever loved. It then seemed to be a natural progression to work full time with dogs. So, in 2012, I made the decision to leave the corporate world of Estate Agency and founded Canine Capers of Chester and the rest as they say, is history.
Baxter Aka Tiny Terrorist
Well, what can I say about my little pocket rocket of a boxer boy!! His story is a long and harrowing one so I’ll keep it brief. Having suffered so much abuse in his home country of Spain, Baxter was found in the streets of Madrid in June 2016 with both his legs cleanly broken courtesy of a humans boot! He was nursed in a foster home in Spain, whilst undergoing multiple surgeries on his legs, finally, in August 2017, he was deemed fit to travel to us and so, he became the 3rd member of the resident pack. His health and behaviour have taken an incredible amount of work but I am so proud of how he has turned out and nothing gives myself more pleasure than seeing him flying around with the pack, he really does grab every opportunity I give him and his zest for life is infectous! He’s a bit of a celebrity too, with facebook followers all over the world, his full story and journey back to health is available on his facebook page “Baxter the unbreakable boxer dog”.
