** Rescuer’s blurb **
I know Holly over 1 and ½ years. First time I met her during the very cold weather in January. It was close to our stable where I usually get washed my car. The lady (not the owner, but she tried to help her) – where she was residing told me about the her how she was transferring her 5 pups from bushes (I witnessed one carrying across the road) into the little shelter where Max was sleeping, almost on the side of the road, but with little roof. So Max sheltered Holly’s pups. Since then I started to feed her real good quality dog food and deworm them both and apply flea treatment. Holly has develop into a nice dog with shiny skin. Almost everyday I drive to the stables and see them. It was heartbreaking when they saw my car they started to run to greet me. If I didn’t go to the stable I gave the lady bag of food to feed them both. Back in June 2012 I missed her heating period (she got pregnant with 8 puppies for which I found great expats families). I promised myself that I will find good owners for her pups. They were born 19 August and since day one we created little shelter in the bushes where Holly conceived her 8 pups. Me and the lady build a little shack from the bricks and secured it against rain. It was hot and humid so lots of mosquito treatments were necessary. Good food for Holly and additional food for pups. I consulted all this with the vet, we lost one pups after 5 weeks (but I found him after 5 months – now with Australian family all happy).
At the age of 7 weeks I took all puppies to the clinic to check them and vaccinate them. It was a big project for me since it took me a while to find right families. And I did. Then mid of November 2012 I took Holly and Max for spay and neuter surgery and since then we kept them there. All happy in great clinic and nurses, good food, warm and love getting from everyone. As I said my original plan was to bring them back to streets, but as per Dr. Beck advice to try them to find nice families, since truly they are great dogs. I took them for a car ride, to restaurants, testing how they are with kids and it all passed the test. Unfortunately really haven’t been tested in family situation, but I have 100% trust in both of them.
Holly is shy, but once you get to know her, she gives you love and affection. She is fully vaccinated, spayed, de wormed and front lined, and fully housebroken. She is medium size, 11kg weight, she would be great in apartments too as she is very calm, quiet. She went through rough stages in her life, for example she was almost killed for meat, got her left paw trapped into man-made trap (I have a photo). As a result she lost 3 of her nails and is slightly limping from time to time. Not a big deal since she can run and is a happy dog. I truly love her, so it is important to me what kind of family she will go to.
Maxik – is a small size dog, mix of chivawa; about 6kg weight, neutered, dewormed, deflead, fully vaccinated and also fully housebroken.
Max’s character is very outgoing, very talkative, feisty, but very affectionate and excited to see people familiar to him. He seems more independent that Holly. He helped Holly through tough times and sheltered her pups, share food with her.
Both are truly great dogs who deserve good, but special families who will understand from where they both come from and give them good life.
As I rescued so many animals in my life I am guaranteeing that they both can give lots of love to new owners.
If they could be rehomed together that would be great as they do rely on each other. But again is not a must and Holly have to get used to it.
** Message from rescuer (Melodie) **
Yesterday afternoon I found Sofie in the street (Haifang lu, close to xi suzhou lu), running, being really scared of people trying to catch her…I managed to get her to come close to me and hooked her up with a rope (she fought and scream like I was torturing her!).
I think she is less than a year old (she still has a puppy face and puppy fur), she is not spayed (couldn’t see any scar), she is scared of dogs (whatever size) but she is very good on leash and walk without pulling (almost all the time), she doesn’t bark at all, she is very skinny and obviously didn’t eat for a long time. My husband call her the puppy Greyhound (she is really thin and tall).
She is now at my friend’s place close to Cantina Agave, but he can’t keep her, and I can’t either (already have 3 dogs and 3 kids….and one of my dog is really aggressive). I have until Friday to find a place for her.
This little girl would be perfect for someone without dog or for a person who never own a dog before (she is very easy going, medium level energy). She is so sweet that I am trying to talk my husband into taking her, but he still resists (4 dogs is not that much, is it?).
Please feel free to contact me at anytime!
I took in a new friend yesterday. He was rescued from the streets by IDIC rescue group. They needed help as they had no space or people to foster so I opted to take him (adopt) in our home (more so as he looks like my existing dog – Mr Lee!)
He is approx 7 to 8 years old male. He has recently been neutered, vaccinated, dewormed and deflead. He must have suffered from mange as his skin is all dry, scabs everywhere and his underbelly skin is all petrified.
We are applying special cream for his dry skin and supplementing his food so that he can gain more weight (as he is so skinny that we can count his ribs!)
Lots of love and attention should do it too
Apart from his health (which is all good), he is toilet trained and gets along well with my other dogs and people
A super nice dog considering he may had been living on the streets for some time….
See his pictures below….hopefully in a month, his condition will improve….more to follow.
When: May 11th, 2013
Where: Cool Docks – Shanghai
Thanking Bubba’s restaurant and Shanghai Dog Walker for including and letting us participate at their event.
Shanghai Dog Walker (Melodie) & JAR are working together to promote their services and we were luckily enough to receive the attention and exposure at the event. For sure more than 1000 people turned up during the course of the day and we managed to distribute plenty of leaflets and our Adoption/Foster Program information to people.
We had 3 adorable dogs available for adoption and they sure received plenty of attention, however none got adopted on the day.
However, one of the dogs is going to be fostered (in time the family will think in adopting it!!).
Some pictures from the event below. Enjoy!
Adult Cat: Fudan
I am Fudan (named after the place where I was born and rescued at Fudan University) I had been rescued on 11 September 2012. The rescuer-Student came to my aid when I was in very bad condition (couldn’t eat at all due to pain in my mouth) sitting in the middle of the pedestrian road. The rescuer took me to Dr. Beck and Stone clinic where I was treated with various medication for Gingivitis and Stomatitis (G+S) – the mounts diseases and moreover I have been diagnosed with FIV. But that doesn’t really matter I still want to continue enjoy my life with some good loving person who could take care of me and in return I am ready to give loooots of love. I am a special cat and I need:
Home: nice loving parents with no other animals living in and need to be living indoor
Food: Royal Canine – Adult Cat and sometimes I like vet canned fish food when my mouth is sensitive
Treatment: 1) FIV positive – need living indoor, parasite control and checkup 2x a year, no raw food and no other animals at home. 2) G+S – need to continue current treatment of homeopathy for sometime in the future; Its curable with 85% rate of success; however subject to changes and the vet discussion on the treatment.
Character: I am very quiet, like my scratchers and toys and I also am sometimes very funny watching nurses;
Surgery: I had been neuter in October 2012; also vaccinated and dewormed;
Home someone can give me a good home. I would be very happy!!
