In 2011, Scamp came to us at 12 years old with a slight heart murmur but remarkably fit for his age. His owners were relocating to Australia and it was felt that the upheaval would not be good for Scamp.

Our grateful thanks go to Scamp’s previous owners who left a “Scamp Fund” to pay for any medical expenses which he needed. We had some dental work done on him, got some excellent homoeopathic treatment for his heart, and found him a wonderful new home in Sutton Coldfield. We get regular updates from his present owners, which we pass on to his first owners.


scamp - asleep in shop

Here is his latest update …I just thought you would like to know that Scamp enjoyed his 14th birthday on Saturday.  I can’t believe that we have almost had him 2 years now.  He is still (touch wood) in very good health for his age.  We had a lovely walk in our local park this morning in the sunshine and now he is, as usual, snoozing away in his basket here at the shop.He enjoyed a holiday in the South of France earlier in the year and we are hoping to take him again when we go in October.  He proved to be an excellent traveller and especially loved the novelty of being allowed in cafes and restaurants!We are probably on bonus time with him but we have our fingers crossed it will continue for as long as possible.  He has brought a lot of joy to our life. Sadly Scamp died at just over 16 years old and was fortunate to be loved by both his owners.
