Project Report | Jul 15, 2021
From newborn to family member

By Sally Andersen | Founder & Chairperson

It's always the very best outcome if a puppy that has been in a foster home since it was a baby can move straight to a forever home without having to return to the Ap Lei Chau Homing Centre.  Billy Bob ended up being a single survivor of his litter, washed out of their nest by heavy rain, and today he was interviewed by a lovely family with another dog in the home, and everyone got on so well that Billy Bob's adoption was confirmed immediately.

Two other washed away victims of heavy rain have now opened their eyes, and despite a week of worry about Beryl who had developed aspiration pneumonia from breathing in rainwater, both are now starting to eat from a bowl and enchant with their adorable photoshoots.  They're still a long way from being ready for adoption unless taken as a pair, but you can follow them on Instagram @why_i_foster to know when they're available as singetons.

I mentioned Ziti yesterday as being the last of "The Edibles" litter and hoping she wasn't going to end up as the one left behind, and I feel the same about Percy, the only "P Litter" puppy still waiting for a home.  As a side note, this litter is a perfect example of how impossible it is to determine how big baby puppies will grow to be as adults, because at first we were told by a vet that they would be small, even under 10kg, when grown.  I was dubious about that prediction, so the next time the puppies were taken for a health check we specifically asked about their size again, and this time it had gone up somewhat.  Then a third time two vets had a look and disagreed about the probable final adult size, so now at four months of age I think all we can say about Percy is that he's unlikely to be over 20 kilos fully grown, meaning medium.   I can also say that he's a very sweet boy who'd make a wonderful family member, and I think it's time that happened.

Sweet and happy Percy 

 

Once again I should know better than to say a dog or puppy has been adopted before the Adoption Agreement has been signed and the ink has dried, because the young (estimated a year old) labrador's would-be family had to postpone any adoption due to unrelated circumstances.  That means Blanco is back on the available list, and in anticipation of many enquiries I'll say now that we'll choose the home that can offer him the best life.  As with all dogs and puppies please start by completing the adoption questionnaire at www.hongkongdogrescue.com/adopt/adoption-questionnaire/

Yet another new dog was taken in at Tai Po, this time a very sweet adult girl who had been rescued with a big wound on her back.  That was treated and has healed, so Wendy is ready to start her new life and that hopefully means being adopted before too long. 

Wendy is a lovely girl
