The Story Of Ian

A Russian born French Bulldog, Ian was imported to South Africa where he successfully fathered several top breed French bulldog litters. After retiring from breeding, Ian was placed in a wonderful home to enjoy the best years of his life, however when he began to lose the movement in his back legs, his owners at the time couldn’t provide his required treatment and he was placed in a centre.

Ian is the quintessential French Bulldog

thrilled with life, happily playing with Bouncie the Jack Russell, ‘talking’ to Vanessa each day (he is VERY vocal) and sharing breakfast snacks of toast in the mornings. Like all super smart dogs, he knows where the dog biscuit barrel is and chances his luck with everyone that visits (and all employees) to get a treat!  That being said, Ian is on a strict eating programme to keep the weight off his legs and is fed only the best top quality dog food.

Walking through the front door, Ian’s delightful face –

and his offering of his favorite toy, a pink circle, greets almost every person.  Like all dogs, Ian loves to go for walks and see the world around him – you can see the joy on his face as he follows you around and it makes everyone who meets him smile when they see how he enjoys meeting ‘humans’. He truly brings happiness to everyone who meets him. The Ralston family are forever grateful that Ian chose them – and that they can love him as much as he loves them..

While getting ideas for lemon products, they ‘fell into’ the enormous category of bath products and craft soap..
