Ice came into rescue in May 2008, at the tender age of 8 weeks old. He was initially fostered by Jacqui, before Shirley and her family offered to foster him until his forever home was found.

We knew that finding Ice a loving home might not be that easy because of his deafness. Shirley did a wonderful job in looking after Ice; all at NIBRS thank her for doing so.

He has now gone to live in Dorset with Craig, Ruth their 6 year old daughter Leah May. He also has a companion in boxer form, a lovely girl called Millie.

Ice is settling in well and up to his usual tricks, hiding Ruth’s keys this morning, resulting in a 45 minute search to find them!

We would like to thank every one who has helped with Ice and the Johnson’s for providing him his forever home.

From Craig

"Hi Jacqui,
How you keeping? Just a quick update on Ice, its almost like he has always been here him and Millie are best friends already! Hes been to a Castle exploring and round a Lake with some woods next to it. I have taken him to work on a few occasions where he had a ride in a big digger and absolutely loved it (Very waggy Tail). We also let him off the lead this evening for the first time with Millie and was a very good boy. We have started using hand signals with him and Millie is helping out. She taps him on the bum to get him to sit when we have a treat ready for them. We can now get him to sit and give Paw. I think that is amazing progress in a week. He also went to our Vets on Friday and had his jabs and they fell in love with him but more importantly he was given a clean bill of health, the Vets have now given us a designated Vet for the Dogs so im really pleased with that.
Have a look at the pics and will speak again soon."
