Xena’s story

So we lost our dog Saffie (the staffie) who was 13 years old about 4 months ago and we were absolutely devastated. My wife in particular was very upset.

She was determined to take a long break from having a dog but I knew our family couldn’t be long without one, especially the bull breeds.

So I found Claddagh online and spotted a beautiful American Pitbull called Sasha and showed her to my wife. She initially said no but then started to enquire without me knowing.

After a couple of days she told me and we headed up to Cavan to meet her and we fell for her straight away.

She instantly became part of our family and I cannot believe we have gotten such an incredible dog again. She adores cuddles on the couch and long walks in the mountains. She loves meeting new people and having new experiences and yet is so calm around the house.

The best thing about getting a rescue dog is that you get to save the life of a dog but also you know beforehand the pros and cons as Rima knows the dogs so well. Everything she told us about Xena was true.

She has enriched our lives beyond words and we can’t thank Rima enough.
Xena is the sweetest dog we’ve ever had and she has filled a massive hole in our family that we thought couldn’t be filled.

Thank you so much Claddagh from Matt, Andrea and family, Co.Cork
