Fantastic pedigree, with lots of champions. Both sire and dam can be seen....Our Adoption Process: If a potential adopter is interested in any of our Adoptable Faithful Friends they contact us to set up a meet and greet with the dog. An online application will be emailed to them. A home visit, vet and reference check will be completed to determine if they and the dog are a right match. An adoption fee of $200 is necessary to cover the cost of spaying/neutering, vetting and unexpected medical issues that may arise.
We also have to pay a fee to the shelter from which the dog originates, not to mention the cost of the transport to get the dogs to Faithful Friends. Without charging an adoption fee, we could not possibly continue our overall mission......to save lives and give second chances."Weird and wonderful stories - amazing animals, stupid criminals, great British eccentrics, local...Published: 14:30 EST, 16 October 2012 | Updated: 09:37 EST, 17 October 2012It would be fair to say that modern art isn't everybody's cup of tea.And it seems this is particularly the case in the seaside town of Ilfracombe, Devon.A controversial Damien Hirst statue of a pregnant woman wielding a sword was erected in the quaint town today. And it led to extremely mixed reviews from the locals.Scroll down for videoHer good side: A woman stops to look at Damien Hirst's controversial bronze sculpture of a half-flayed pregnant womanTowering: The sculpture was erected in Ilfracombe, Devon, earlier this week
The 67ft bronze sculpture, called Verity, was put up on the pier at 3pm, after Hirst loaned the piece to the town for 20 years.It was installed on the harbour, with full planning permission from North Devon Council, despite 100 letters of objection.Verity, described by Hirst as a 'modern allegory of truth and justice', carries the scales of justice and is standing on a plinth of law books.groodle pups for sale victoria

Mike Edmunds, councillor at North Devon Council, from Ilfracombe, said he saw the controversial statue as a way of boosting tourism.bichon frise for sale london ontario
He said: 'We need to have a second string to our bow.Feat of engineering: It took cranes and heavy lifting gear to move the 25-tonne bronze into place'We’ve relied, as a holiday resort, on our natural charm and beauty, but that’s not enough in the present day.'Hotels are closing, so we’ve got to do something to boost the economy and we’re looking at the arts as a way of encouraging visitors.'Art divides people, and the one thing about Verity is that because it is so controversial it will attract people to the town.I can’t see in my own mind why there was such an outcry that it was so offensive.'Verity, who stands at 20.25m from plinth to sword tip, is slightly taller than the Angel of the North and weighs more than 25 tonnes.Her stance is taken from Edgar Degas’ Little Dancer of Fourteen Years, which was first referenced by Hirst in his 2005 bronze Virgin Mother.The statue was made in more than 40 individual castings at Pangolin Editions foundry in Gloucestershire.
It is made from stainless steel and bronze, with the sword and upper arm from a single piece of fibre glass reinforced with polymer.Wind tunnel testing was carried out to ensure the statue will be able to withstand high winds and sea spray.Slowly does it: After being transported to the pier on a flatbed truck, the statue was lifted uprightOn the way up: Verity is painstakingly inched into placeThe colossus stands tall at lastNorth Devon Council received 100 letters of objection and 177 letters of support of Verity before it passed the planning application this summer.One objector was Sue Dale, owner of Ilfracombe’s Darnley Hotel, who is relieved her guests will not have a view of the statue.She said: 'I think it’s more hideous than I did before, and it isn’t suitable for a Victorian seaside town.'I think it’s disappointing that the money and the ideas couldn’t have been spent on a proper attraction to encourage people to come to Ilfracombe 52 weeks of the year.
