We know someone who is breathing a big sigh of relief and happiness tonight. After a very nervous wait while the ten days’ pound time was ticking by, Gee finally collected Taffy (now Teki) today. In fact Teki would no doubt be breathing a sigh of relief too, if he only knew.
This little lad arrived ten days ago having been found in a nearby village. It was clear that he was a hunt dog; the luminous collar and huge bell are a bit of a giveaway. But as he was not identified there was no way to contact his owner. A phone number on a collar is a good back up, but it is not adequate; half the digits were illegible in this case. Had he been identified by either chip or tattoo, by now he could be back with his owner. Except we are all glad he isn’t. Okay, he was not in a terrible state compared to some of the dogs who arrive, but he was literally crawling with fleas, and fleas if left untreated (like these) can lead to infection and disease.
As it is, Teki is going to live a life of luxury with Gee, Chris and their two other dogs. We look forward to news and photos of this lucky lucky boy in his new home.
We had a couple of new arrivals today. A lovely border collie whose owner has died, and a tiny fauve de Bretagne who has been fending for herself in a nearby village for five months. Plus we have five gorgeous pups who are ready for adoption!
New arrival – YOTA
