Every now and then something happens that is proof that showcases the good and kindness in the world… Marika Gothlin is an Swedish immigrant, and last year for the first time in her life adopted a dog; a beautiful 6 month old Biewer Yorkshire Terrier (Noah) from Ark Animal Centre. To her surprise Noah molded into her lifestyle and stole her heart.
Often speechless as words cannot describe how amazing it is to have him in her life, Marika expresses how wonderful Noah is with her 3 daughters and husband, Noah has become part of their family. In December she cancelled her trip to Sweden primarily because Must Love Dogs, boutique hotel was fully booked and she couldn’t bear to leave him with anyone else.
Ark was lucky to have received 3 Basset Hound Puppies on the 26 April they were quarantined and the little male (Goerge) had a very strange eye condition, after visiting Palm Gardens Vet it was clear that the puppy was in need of an expensive operation to remove a Dermoid in the eye. On the second of May Marika and her family popped into Ark Animal Centre, for a visit, they had booked another little Yorkie as they felt Noah needed a friend. However whilst spending time with the pups in the kennels, they noticed little George and Tracy explained the nature of his condition. Marika asked if she could foster little George for a week. On the 6th May Marika returned to Ark and to our surprise had taken George for the operation on her account. An amazing lady with a very warm heart has given this little Basset Hound and opportunity to a beautiful life. He was adopted by a loving family and is now living in the lap of luxury. While Marika ended up adopting another one of our rescue pooches, Sammy. Big thank you to Marika Gothlin and her amazing family!!!!!!!
