31/01/15 UPDATE: No one has claimed Tara to-date... So we really think that she must have been abandoned. We are considering putting her up for adoption, but her adopter will have to be quite experienced with dealing with Shih Tzus due to the condition of her eye. It has improved a lot but it will be a lifelong condition where she will require eye drops and eye ointments.

However, she is also quite snappy therefore her adopter must also be very patient and kind when dealing with her. 

She gets along well with older dogs and also cats. One of our rescued cats Snowie loves her alot and watches over her all the time. So if you have a calm cat, she will also do well with you...

Please SMS or WhatsApp 016 322 8816 if you can give Tara a good home.


19/10/14 UPDATE: We have decided to name this little girl Tara... Her ear infection has cleared up completely, and her eye infection is much much better now.

No one has claimed her to-date, and so she is up for adoption. However, she will only be released to her new family once her eyes have cleared up a bit more. Please note that she is a bit older (about 6/7 years old) and so will need extra care. She will also need an experienced handler as she does not like her eyes and ears cleaned and is quite snappy. But otherwise she's a really easy dog. She loves to eat and sleeps alot...

Please SMS or WhatsApp 016 322 8816 if you would like to give her a good home. Serious adopters only, breeders NEED NOT apply. She will also be spayed before she is released to her new home.

 27/09/14 UPDATE: Just back from the vet. Kiddo's eye is badly infected and there seems to be some trauma to the cornea. Ears are also full of gunk and my vet managed to clean it all out although the kiddo was quite snappy. Have got 2 different eye ointments, ear ointment and antibiotics. Dewormed as well...

26/09/14 I'm at my wits end. Thought I would have the weekend to work and run errands. But that was not to be. My helper Charis Stanton heard a dog barking outside my house. 

So of course we went to look and found this kiddo in the 6 foot deep drain right outside my house. It's in terrible condition. Don't know if it's lost or dumped. I hope it is the former...
Have just given the kiddo a quick bath, cleaned its eye as best as I could and fed it. Will be taking it to the vet tomorrow morning.

If this is your dog, please SMS or Whatsapp me at 016 322 8816. If not please share so that we can reunite this little one with its family....

12 JAN 2015: We rescued this sweetie in February last year (2014) and he was slightly injured then. But the good news was that we found his family a week later. We returned him to his family who seemed very happy to have him back and we thought that that was the end of the story.

Last week, my helper Charis Stanton saw him at our house with the rest of our strays. She fed him and didn't think much of it as she actually did not recognize him immediately as he has lost so much weight and looked really poorly. 

He came again this weekend and it was only then that I realized it was Oreo. He had a huge maggot wound in his neck and several other wounds, he was covered with fleas and he was limping badly. 

We managed to catch him the next day, gave him a good bath and treated him with Bayticol as there was just so many fleas it was unbelievable.

And then with advice from Mun Mun IMonday we flushed his maggot wound with hydrogen peroxide. Hundreds of maggots came out and it was just absolutely disgusting. As we couldn't stomache taking the maggots out ourselves, so we took him to the vet, and she removed alot more. 

Our vet told us that the wound was at least 10 days to 2 weeks old, which means that he has been left untreated all this time. The fact that this time he has no collar makes us suspect that he has now been thrown out.

He is currently boarding at the vet as we think that he has alot of underlying issues as well. We will be treating him and we hope that he will have a speedy recovery.

 Once he is all better, we would like to put him up for adoption to a good home where he will be love and cared for. In hindsight, It is quite clear that his family does not care about him. Because when we sent him back to them last year, and told him that he was injured etc they weren't too keen about listening to what we had to say. And we also told them that we had boarded him for a week and taken him to the vet several times, and they didn't offer to pay us back for anything. But at the time, we just left it as we were just happy that we found his family. Mind you they lived in a big corner house and had about 5 big cars in their porch!

He is a very sweet natured dog and did not show any aggression to us or the vet when we were cleaning his wounds. He just lay down very quietly. He seemed like a broken dog with no spirit left. We hope that we can change this and show him there are people who will care about him and show him lots of love and affection. 

If you think you can give Oreo a good home, please SMS or WhatsApp 016 322 8816. If you cannot, please share this with your friends. Someone you know may be able to give him the home that he deserves.
