Happy Birthday to ME!

Friday March 04, 2011

BeckhamHello my name is Beckham and I am an Education Dog for the DSPCA in Rathfarnham.

I am 10 years old today. 

I was rescued by the DSPCA on the 4th March 2002 when I was only 1 year old because a kind person reported that I was living in a back garden in Clondalkin. 

My owner was not feeding me enough food so I was very thin and sick.  One of the DSPCA inspectors took me back to the shelter and there I was looked after very well.  I was called Beckham after some famous lady called Victoria who is very skinny.

Now I enjoy a fun life.  I accompany Gillian Bird who is the Primary Schools Eduction Officer when she visited schools to give talks and I love coming to work with her to the DSPCA shelter where I have a whole gang of doggy friends including my favourites Maggie, Buddy and Angel.  There are so many things to do here and new animals to meet as well as visitors to get cuddles from.

If you would like to meet me and any of my other  friends please drop up to the DSPCA as we will be happy to greet you and maybe you will think about taking a friend home with you are if you cant you may like to sponsor me or one of my friends.

Gillian would like me to say that if you want more information you can visit our education section on this web site or call her on 01 4994705 or even email

Bye for now,
