Shortly after Carol had been notified that she had won Four Paws and a Tail Photo’s competition she asked us whether, on the day of the photosession, she could invite one of her friends Charlie and her dog Scarlett to come along for support. We were more than happy to accomodate for this – we get a little nervous before each photo-shoot and we had yet to meet Carol.
Charlie brought her husband Allan and Scarlett with her to the photo-session. There is quite a story to how Scarlett came to be Charlie and Allan’s care – in Charlies and Scarletts own words:
In November 2013, I was looking on Twitter and saw a photograph posted of a little dog that needed to find her ‘furever home’. Here is that photo:
I looked and kept returning to the pictures for a couple of weeks and then shared the photo with my partner. It had been 3 years since we had owned a dog and finally felt the time was right to consider doing so again. I decided to contact the rescue centre that had posted the tweet – ‘Finding Furever Homes’ @NWDogRescue.
NW Dog Rescue told me that the little dog was still available but was currently in the ‘pound’ in Romania. I was a little concerned about this information but was reassured by the NW Dog Rescue who explained that all travel arrangements would be made for her to be brought to the UK. They informed me some ‘wonderful Twitter people’ had already asked for and paid for the little dog to be saved and transported over here.
They had called her Scarlett. This was because she ‘photo-bombed’ a picture of the dog in the next cage who had already been rescued and was due to come to the UK. His name was Red and it made sense to call her Scarlett.
A second picture of Scarlett in her pen:
So on 12 January 2014 Scarlett arrived in the UK with roughly 15 other rescued dogs who all had wonderful furever homes to go to.
Scarlett – “My new mum and dad were there to meet me when I arrived in a new country. As in all good fairy tales it’s a very happily ever after for me in my new forever home with a loving mum and dad”.
Scarlett, her mum and dad would like to thank all the people involved in helping her find her furever home.

An absolutely brilliant rescue story!
As you can see Four Paws and a Tail Photos managed to capture a few images of Scarlett during Danny’s photosession. Scarlett and Danny played together so beautifully 🙂 Here is a picture of Scarlett:
