"Big" is a Chung Hom Kok Collie, a "breed" invented by HKDR to identify a particular family of dogs that came from the same area. They are very easy to recognise by their beautiful looks and lovely natures, and although some are quite large, Big is actually not too big.
At 3 years old Big is in his prime, and he is the nicest and friendliest dog you can imagine. He loves all people and other dogs, even small ones, so we are sure he would be fine with cats too.
His previous owners, who adopted him as a puppy from HKDR, inexplicably gave him away to a completely unsuitable person, and he was subsequently picked up as a stray and sent to AFCD where we found him.
When Big arrived at HKDR Tai Po Homing Centre, he was feeling lost and insecure. He would cry when he saw people around, begging for our attention. It was heart-breaking how such a sweet, lovely and unbelivably affectionate dog would end up being abandoned (or should we say, re-abandoned as he was adopted as a homeless puppy to start with).
Luckily, it didn't take long for Big to find a great home, where he has settled right in and is very much loved.
Imagine just how a lovely dog like Big could have been killed - twice - if no one ever rescued him from the death rows at AFCD. And to save lives like Big's is the sole purpose why HKDR is here. Thank you very much for your generous support, all you life-savers.
