Gemma, Floki and Kiara

~ Gemma, Floki and Kiara ~

Six years ago, Gemma welcomed rescue pup, Floki, into her life. Then, not long after, they welcomed Kiara into their family. Since then, they have all formed such a strong bond with one another and continue to enrich each other’s lives. 

For as long as she can remember, Gemma has always loved animals. Wanting to adopt one of her own when she arrived in New Zealand, she instantly visited a shelter in hopes of finding a furry friend. Once there, she met a beautiful tan and white Cattle Dog x – Floki. He reminded Gemma of her family dog back in England and, in that moment, she knew he was perfect. 

Just under six years after adopting Floki, Gemma felt he needed a friend to be at home with. Then, one day, she saw a Staffy x online, named Kiara, who was looking for a forever home. She decided to arrange a visit, with Floki, and as soon as they met, both dogs hit it off and Gemma knew Kiara had found her new home. 

Having Floki and Kiara has been life-changing for Gemma. Floki has brought so much love and joy into his human’s life and has helped her to learn so much about dog training. Kiara has taught her human even more about dog training as her way of learning is different to Floki’s. Both she and Floki have such a great friendship. It means a lot to Gemma to see them so happy together. 

Both dogs have brought so much love and joy into Gemma’s life. At the end of a long day, she knows that, no matter what, she will have two very excited doggos waiting to welcome her back home. As well as this, Floki and Kiara have encouraged Gemma to be more adventurous by exploring new areas for walks and exercise. Having this time with her canine companions means the world to her. 

Not only has Gemma visited more places, but she’s also had the opportunity to meet many people, and dogs, through Floki and Kiara’s social media accounts. Floki is a gentle doggo that, at first, may be a bit shy, but once he gets to know a new person, they soon become a new friend! Kiara loves meeting new people and is always excited to make friends with both humans and dogs alike. 

The bond that Gemma, Floki and Kiara share is truly special. They have changed each other’s lives for the better and continue to bring love and happiness into every single day.
