Christmas at K9


Meet Lia

Hi, I’m Lia. I’m 5 months old and the best and brightest pup ever. That’s what my people at K9 tell me and I’m sure they are right! I’m going to be medium-sized when I’m fully grown, smaller than everyone thought when I arrived at the refuge two months ago. My elderly owners had to take me to the refuge as a change in circumstances meant they could not keep me. I was very sad about that and miss them but am hoping to find my new lovely home very soon.

I have made lots of friends at the refuge and I have been learning about being a grown up and responsible dog from my best friend, Fred. He’s an older lad who has been around, so knows what he is talking about. I love to learn new things and know how to “sit”, “gimme five” and I even do “heel” a little bit. I’m now learning not to jump up but it is quite difficult as I’m still a puppy and love to jump around. I’ll get there though! I love my walks and am very good off and on lead. My favourite game is running after my tennis ball. I even take it back…sometimes!

I’m wondering if you have a place in your home and heart for me? I promise to give you lots of love, fun and devotion in return.  If you would like to meet me, please get in touch with my people at K9 in any of the ways mentioned below.

A Wonderful Night

The annual K9 festive dinner held at Cueva El Campesina in Aldea Blanca was very well attended with 145 people enjoying good food, wine, dancing and excellent entertainment. Guests were, as always, incredibly generous and the event raised well over £1000 for our dogs.

Much thanks to: all our supporters who bought tickets and attended the event; all who donated prizes; Hollywood Mirage for their 7 day studio apartment stay; Showtime Adeje for the 2 person ticket to attend one of their cabaret shows; Aidy Evans and Storm Duo for the fabulous entertainment; Restaurante Cueva El Campesino for the lovely meal; Mikey and Lyn for organising it all (we all know that without you it wouldn’t happen!); and last but far from least to all who brought food and treats for our pupsters who, of course, are what it is all about.  They say “thanks for caring about us guys – we really appreciate your support”.

We have many dogs – in all shapes and sizes – waiting patiently for their loving, safe and secure forever homes.  You can see them all – their stories and pictures – on our website at  Go to “K9 dogs/Dogs waiting for homes”.
