Arielle’s story is an upsetting one. From birth in Ireland, she was kept in dismal conditions. She arrived in our care, thanks to our Irish rescue friends. She was severely traumatised and totally shut down and we were unsure if she would ever be able to cope with life – it was clear she found the world completely terrifying. Again, a previous adopter got in touch and offered to foster this poor, broken girl. It was here where her journey really began. Since that day, her amazing foster parents have given Arielle nothing but their time, devotion, patience and understanding. The tiniest steps forward have seemed miraculous for Arielle. Every journey starts with the smallest of steps you see…. And every little step forward, even if followed by a several many backwards, is cause for rejoicing. After over 18 months, Arielle was able to sit next to her parents and her tail was lifted from underneath her. A few months back we received the most wonderful news. Her foster parents wanted to make it official. They could not bear to be parted from this special little girl and the feeling was mutual. Arielle has managed to build trust and we believe a bond with her foster family who are now her furever family. She has not only gained two of the most awesome parents, but also three furbrothers and sisters! Recently, Arielle also managed to take a biscuit from her grandmother. Miracles really do happen…..
