It’s been a strange week so far, with not only the rain to deal with but also a torrent of surrender requests as well as abandoned small dogs arriving. More than ever we are in need of homes and fosters, as turning away dogs such as this poor little guy would be unthinkable. Paulie had been living in this cage, outside, for two months before being rescued but he still had nowhere to go. Windy (guess why I gave her that name) is another small dog from the same area, also young and at least she hasn’t suffered as Paulie has. Honestly the mind boggles sometimes at what some people think is an acceptable way to keep a dog, and a cage – especially with wire floor – is never OK.
The mother-and-babies who have been staying in the Tai Po house shower room were lucky enough to find a foster home today, making space in their previous ‘home’ for the mother-in-waiting at AFCD and her six. While this is all good news for now it means twelve little pups will soon be needing homes of their own, and that’s another matter completely. I’ll deal with that when the time comes as I have other ready-to-go puppies that are first in line.
After taking the family out of AFCD, and a surrendered pekingese, there was only one dog left in the entire place and that’s the bull terrier boy. He’s a lovely dog, very sweet and friendly, but I’ve been waiting to see if I can find him a foster – if not a home - before taking him out. Bull terriers fall somewhere between small and large size, and this boy (I’ve already called him Curry) is way too active for our Ap Lei Chau Centre while not really fitting in at Tai Po either. They’re also one of those breeds that people either love or don’t like at all, mainly due to their looks. I promised the AFCD staff I would take him out on Friday so if you are interested in knowing more about Curry, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
