Have just made my second purchase on preloved. It's so easy and although a few people unfortunately don't reply to emails, others reply promptly and even by text too. It's soooooo much better than waiting on an Auction to end. I recently upgraded to full membership and i'm glad I did, otherwise I may have lost out.

Today I sold my Staffie Cross, Scruffy to a lovely couple, Jamie and Kezzia from Montrose. Scruffy is 6 years old and I thought he would find it difficult to go to someone new, I have had him from 8 weeks, but he took to the couple very quickly. They have been in touch and said he seems to be happy with them. He has behaved himself and obeyed his commands. They took him for a walk on the beach and he had a great time chasing sticks and running around making friends with other dogs. They have invited me to visit them any time if I want to see him and they have offered to come and see me when they are visiting friends who live nearby. Thanks Preloved, it was not an easy decision to get him rehomed but I am sure he will be very happy and well looked after.

I would like to say a big big thank you to the lovely lady and gentleman from Warrington who gave us so many lovely things for my son's first home - he really is very grateful, and then she actually posted out some more items! I hope your house move goes well, and you have love, health and happiness in your new home x
