Weekends, meanwhile, are spent back at home in Macclesfield with Danny and Hannah and include plenty of runs and walks, as well as the odd mountain climbing expedition.
But while she loves to be active, Cinders is equally fond of snuggles on the sofa – as was apparent on the day that Blue Cross visited her. Her transition from sad street dog to much-loved pet is remarkable.
“She is loving, greedy and a bit of a princess. She’s beautiful inside and out, we love her,” Hannah said.
And not only has Cinders brought fun, love and companionship to her owners’ lives, she also motivates them to get out and enjoy the great outdoors on even the dreariest of days.
“It does motivate you; when it’s cold, windy and rainy outside, you still know that she still needs her run so you have to get your kit on and get her out, so it does stop you getting lazy,” Danny said.
Hannah continued: “Danny has always been very outdoorsy and active anyway so she’s fitted in absolutely perfectly with that. But having Cinders has also forced me to get back into running after a few years of not doing much of it.
“Recently Danny was away with work for about six weeks so Cinders stayed at home with me. It made me go out running and walking.
“Blue Cross matched her to us after we were originally looking at another dog, and they have got it spot on. It has completely changed our lives for the better, we’re so glad that we adopted her.”
But perhaps most rewarding for Danny and Hannah is the fact that they’ve been able to give Cinders a second chance in life when she had endured so much misery in her past.
“It’s really rewarding to have been able to give her a second chance, and see her so relaxed and enjoying life. It makes us really sad to think about what she went through,” said Danny.
