Another scorching but busy day at the refuge and luckily we were busy with departures rather than arrivals!
Two of the ‘wonder woman’ pups left, one into foster and one has been adopted.
Sameer was the last pup from the litter to be trapped and brought to the refuge but he certainly was the boldest! He didnt have long to wait and no wonder he really was a super pup! Today he left with his forever family!
At the moment, we have quite a few pups and in the afternoons they attract lots of attention with their puppy antics in an exercise park in front of reception. Its great for the pups to all play together, different breeds, different ages but we cannot stress the importance of socialisation which the ‘wonder woman’ pups have clearly missed out on.
This is not just socialisation with other pups but with adults, children, around cars, bikes you name it pups need to be carefully exposed to it.
The second ‘wonder woman’ pup to leave was Hippolyta. She is a very pretty, timid girl and has gone to foster mum Shirley to catch up with the socialisation that she has missed.
As Shirley is a dog trainer as well as a volunteer, little Hippolyta is in the best of hands and I am sure that she will be ready for adoption soon.
The next adoption was a really great adoption. Nourgaro a very gentle but timid shepherd cross who had been with us for 2 years! He really was a lovely boy who was easy to walk and it’s a mystery why he waited so long.
We seem to be on a roll with long timers leaving. That’s both Tipi and Nougaro this week which really is encouraging.
Alfie ( ex Mabrook) came along to visit and to bring us some dog food ( thank you Chris and Monique) and to walk some of our dogs, so Padar and Polo got to meet Alfie and have a nice walk.
Lets hope that this weeks luck continues and that we see lots more dogs adopted. Next week will be very busy with strays and lost dog reports after the 14th July celebrations but more about that tomorrow!
Hippolyta in foster!
