Eagle eyed followers of the forum may remember this girl from a few months ago when she was Lexi Sadly, Gypsy has been returned to the Home as, although all was hunky dory indoors, Gypsy and her bro had a few sibling scuffles whilst out on walks. After chatting to the staff, her family thought she may be happier living as an only dog. Gypsy has come back to CDH with glowing references, she is a perfect house guest and very gentle around the youngsters that she lived with, as well as all visitors to the house. Good girl Gypsy, we didnt expect anything less of you girlie!!
Gypsy has lost none of her charm and spent her photoshoot wooing me and Cheryl all over again! She does seem a bit bewildered to be back at the Home though, and took great comfort from staying close by us
We took Gypsy for a short walk before her photoshoot and she was lovely to walk. No pulling, walked passed other dogs with no problems whatsoever and didnt seem bothered by anything! She really is a good to go girlie!

I meet little Gypsy on Saturday, she is stunning - who knows what she is...Heinz 57 for sure...but who cares...because all you need to know is that she is a beauty!! I've no idea why she's not been snapped up already!!!
Gypsy walked very well on her lead, we had a lovely stroll, there was no pulling at all, she has great manners and the cutest face ever!!
This girl has bags of love to offer....snap her up quick!!
I had great pleasure in taking Gypsy for a walk this morning. She was excited to get out of her kennel and get going, and so was a little bouncy at first, but she very quickly settled and walked most of the time with no pulling at all.
Gypsy is so nice to walk, she's not pully, she checks in every now and then and though she does like to be up ahead she will wait at kerbs etc when she's asked to. She took no notice of traffic, bikes and happily walked past other dogs with no bother at all.
We had a short time in the garden and she enjoyed a fuss and some quiet time and I was rewarded with a kiss
when I saw her later in her kennel she clearly remembered me but she's quite timid and tends to keep away from the front.
Gypsy is quite vocal in her kennel, but please look past this and take her out, she didn't bark once at anything while we were out!
I am really surprised she's still waiting for a home, she's a little diamond

Can't help but echo the things above. Took this lovely lady out for a walk today, so gentle and polite. She said a few hellos as she came out the kennels but not a peep when we were out of with Fletch.
Very little pulling, constantly checking I was there by her, very polite and timid. Bumped into Suzie and her dog Bas, she had no interest and they walked blissfully side by side like long lost chums.
I've forgotten how to post photos onto Proboard and will have to get into practice again but Gypsy is the loveliest total family dog. We had the pleasure of walking her the weekend before last because Cheryl couldn't resist steering me in her direction (once a terrier girl, always a terrier girl ). She was a darling to walk - didn't pull, non-reactive to other dogs, checked to make sure we were still there - and would make a lovely and loving addition to any family. Fingers crossed that a family will see what we can all see and she'll get a forever home really really soon xx
I am absolutely delighted to say that the gorgeous Gypsy has trotted off home I cant quite believe she waited so long, she's a beaut and as easy a dog as you could get! Be happy lovely girl, we will miss your whiskery face x
We are absolutely heartbroken to have to share this sad news.... Gypsy has left her beloved mummy for Rainbow Bridge
This has all happened so quickly. Gypsy was out of sorts, and had a scan for what her darling mummy thought was a mass on her liver. The initial news was that she actually had a problem with her spleen, and it was thought that this was operable.
But the reality and severity of Gypsy's illness soon became apparent, and just four days later, Gypsy's mum posted...
"It was with a heavy heart we said goodnight to our beautiful girl, Gypsy yesterday. We found out Tuesday she needed a splenectomy which was carried out yesterday but the cancer had spread too far. It's really hard to comprehend how within 4 days your world can be turned upside down by your furry baby. I'd like to think she's off trying to say hello to cats somewhere because she never chased them. We'll never forget you Gypsy-dog, xxxxx"
Sometimes we rehome a dog, and we know, we just know that it's a match made in heaven, for that dog it truly is the best day of their life, and we all felt in our bones that Gyspy was the luckiest girl in the world to be going home with Fiona.
We can't imagine how utterly heartbroken Fiona must be, she and Gyspy had such an amazing bond, to have her taken away so soon, and so quickly is so very cruel and unfair.
We remember every single one of our bridge babies will such affection, every one of them reminds us why we do what we do.
Gypsy died in the tender arms of the person who gave her a second chance, who whispered soft words to her as they slipped away, and as heartbreaking as that is, it is a great comfort to us that she died knowing how it felt to be truly loved, maybe for the first time in her life.
Rest easy Gypsy, run free with our precious bridge babies xx
