I started life in Limerick, Ireland. As a stray I was picked up and then transported to Princes Risbourgh in England to The Hearing Dogs for Deaf People http://www.hearingdogs.org.uk/
I spent some time with puppy socialisers (about 3 months I think). Mum and Dad are eternally grateful to whoever looked after me then as they did a great job on my obedience training! (I've since managed to curl them around my little claw though ).
Mum had been on to Dad for ages about getting a dog and he was persuaded by friends, who already had a Fallen Angel (that's what they call us 'Rejects' !) to allow mum to apply. Dad was told that it would take months to get a dog. The application posted on Monday they had a call on Tuesday and two weeks later I was off to live in Dorset.
I love it here with Mum and Dad and all the other visitors that come along to play
