And in even better news, both Samson AND Rio were offered rescue spaces shortly afterwards.
Now for the best bit of all... Rio and Samson have both been rehomed! Samson was spotted at the kennels by a family visiting another dog - they fell in love with him on first sight. Rio went into foster care, but was there for only 12 hours before his foster family decided they wanted to become his forever family.
Woo hoo! What a result!
We are keeping everything crossed that Cooper gets some good news soon too.
