Who and why?

First and foremost, we’re dog owners, just like you. The current incumbents in the Shake Paws family are Roma and Dotty, both lurchers, and our two cats Cloud and Rain; prior to rescuing Roma and Dotty, we had Jem, also a lurcher. You could say we like lurchers. We have had dogs in our respective families since we were children, including a Jack Russell terrier and a number of mixed breeds. When they arrived on our doorsteps – some of them in a very sorry state – each and everyone had found their forever homes.

Shake Paws’ founders Jeff and Jane Porter have spent their entire careers in magazine and book publishing. They wanted to set up their own little venture, so they chose their favourite subject – dogs – and here they are!
