We need your help!

** Email received **

Dear pet lovers,

We need help for this little puppies.

We found them, the 20.8.2014, on the street. First we found him, and one day later, we noticed that he has a little sister. They looked very pitiful, sad and ill. For this we took them immediately to the vet. It wasn’t a problem to take and to transport them in the arms in a taxi. They have been very quiet and didn’t made any problems, they both were cheerful, like humans and weren’t afraid.
The puppies had there a lot of medical examinations: blood, ears, skin, fur, excrement. He complained and whined a bit, but I think he had the right to do it, nobody likes examination. She was very uncomplicated.
He is 4 months old and male. We named him Sunshine, because he is so unbelievable cute and positive, I think he will enrich everybody’s life! She is 5 months and the most lovingly dog we know, she is so thankful. We called her Gypsy.
The current medical situation is:

  • Both have Demotex, these are mites that live in or near hair follicles.
  • For treatment they need every week one injection, last week they got the first one.
  • Sunshine needs next week, the 27.08.2014, additional one antibiotic injection ( he already got one last week).
  • Because of the itch from the Demotex mites, Sunshine scratched one ear bloody.
  • The ear must be treated with some lotion one week long and he has to carry a ruffle.
  • They haven’t got fleas
  • They have been dewormed
  • They have been bathed
  • They got vaccinated against everything and rubies from the Shenpu- Hospital
  • They got microchips from the Shenpu- Hospital
  • On the 22.09.2014 they have to been castrated and blood has to be taken and send to Germany (an important step for the export to Europe)

    The vet said everything should be good after the injections and it’s not tragic.
    How you can see on the picture, some stupid person cut Sunshine the fur. Normally he should look like a little golden retriever, said the vet. The fur will grow fast. For this his skin has a few scratches.

First we just wanted to find them a foster place, but now we got so much in love with the puppys, that we decided to take them with us to Germany.

The problem is, that we have to leave to Germany in already 2 weeks, but they have to stay here for another 4 months (until the 21.12.2014). We visited some boarding houses, but nothing seems to be good enough for them, because most of them have only little cages, what is worthless for a dog. We would love and pray, that they can found a lovely family for this time, which has time and love for the dogs, they deserve it so much”
There are also big boarding houses with bigger kennels, than the small boxes, but it’s very expensive and we can’t afford the money for 2 puppies for 4 months. And they don’t devote themselves to the dogs, I don’t think they spend much time with them. But we also can’t let them go back to live on the street!
They both like human, it doesn’t seem, that they have been ever treated violent. They like also other dogs, always when they see another dog they wag the tail and are very delighted. They are very uncomplicated and intelligent dogs. He is very cheerful, like nearly every puppy, and not afraid or aggressive. He just teethes, for this he likes to nibble the leash.

She is a little sweetheart and so kind, so honest, so cheerful when she sees one, we totally lost our heart.
We bought them a dog harness and have been out with them, the walking on the lead was very easy, they learned it already. They are not afraid of cars, loud places, people, big dogs or something else, everything was really fine.
Unfortunately we are not allowed to keep them in the hotel, we asked already several times. And naturally we can’t put them again on the street! Now they are on the boarding house “Zimba” in Songjing, but unfortunately it is quite expensive and they really don’t use much time for the dogs.
Our biggest wish is to find for them for the 4 months a loving person or family with enough place, because they are so innocent creatures, which never have done something and deserve so much, to be well treated. They give so much love and not even want to get something back.

So we called JAR and begged for help. And now we pray, that someone can take this little puppys fast! Please help little Sunshine and Gypsy.

Thank you very much for the time spent listening this appeal for help and please help us!

Happy new beginning…..

Dear All,
I’m writing with an update on Frank, but first let me apologize for the delay in sending one; it’s been a busy summer with home country travel, some health issues, moving apartments, and changing jobs.  Even so, I am sorry to not have kept everyone up to date along the way with how Frank is doing, but I know write with great news.
As you all know, Frank’s first surgery was to close the wound around his face.  He recovered well, but a more invasive surgery was needed to correct his fractured hip.  Doctors Beck and Stone proceded with this second surgery in mid-June (even though all the money was not yet raised to pay for it!).  They even put Frank’s story on their website to help raise additional funds.  After the hip surgery (in which he was also neutered as well), Frank remained in boarding at Beck and Stone so that he could continue with physical therapy/massage on a daily basis while he re-learned to use his hind leg and we searched for a forever home.
He seemingly came to know the vet office as “home” and consequently became quite comfortable there, despite most animals sensing/disliking being at a vet’s office.  As it was probably the nicest home Frank had ever known (having come from a hard life on the streets), he was apparently always happy and lively when clients and their pets came in for an appointment.
Many people commented about what a great dog he is and fortunately, he caught the eye of some dog-lovers.  The family has two big dogs already (hence the visits to the vet during Frank’s stay there), a big house outside of Shanghai and hearts big enough for one more family member.
So the great news is, Frank has been adopted!  Please find some pictures of Frank at his new home with his “big sisters” (in the other dogs).
I am still awaiting confirmation, but another praise is that I believe all funds have been raised to cover all his expenses.  Thank you so much for being a part of giving this precious boy a Happy New Beginning!
Warmest Regards & Sincerest Appreciation for all Your Help,

Dasha & Fred

Dasha and Fred:

A lovely couple looking for a loving home.

Brother and sister are about 9 weeks old by now and one falls in love with them at first sight. Dasha, the female kitten, is a brave and cuddly one. She would be the one trying to climb on everything first and does not mind falling off several times in a row. Fred seems to be the smart one. He is more careful at the start, looks at everything first and when he decides finally to give it a try he most likely succeeds. He also needs his cuddling times, but always decides when he wants to have them: most likely once a day they would both hop onto my lap and fall asleep there together.

Being kitten they love to play a lot, where an old shopping list can be more exciting than the best bought toy.

Rescuing Little Whitey

A posting was received on Weibo about a stray dog that had major skin problems wandering around the Guanglan Lu Ming Yuan compound and was again  re-posted by other rescue groups weeks ago.

A kind hearted individual (Brent) who lives in the compound persisted and made contact with various animal rescue groups as the dog really needed medical attention and wanted further support and assistance in rescuing the dog. Unfortunately, there were not any individuals who were available to physically help out.  At the end of the day, the dog (named Little Whitey) needed help ASAP.

I wanted to do whatever I could to help the dog and provide support to Brent……costs/fees and funding was the last thing on my mind.  The mission was to rescue Little Whitey. Cut a long story short, it took a few weeks to rescue him but finally we managed to rescue her last night (9th Aug).

Thank you to Brent and his family for helping out and for another lady (Ellen) for enticing the dog to come in the building. With determination and perseverance, Little Whitey came to trust us…She is going to be safe and sound and will recover to full health again soon…..thank goodness!

Please get in touch with me if there are people willing to donate and assist us with her medical care. I appreciate any help given.

Thank you again for your support!




This is how she looked like late last year! She was owned before till she got a little sick so the owner abandoned her!
I got this information from Brent’s neighbor whose dog used to play with Little Whitey.
