Lucky Noosa and Blondie

Just when I was thinking we hadn't seen any dogs leaving Tai Po for a while, two adoptions have been confirmed. Blondie is one of them and Noosa the other, so I'm feeling as relieved as they must be happy.

Murphy went back to Acorn this morning as one of a group of dogs taking part in experimental stem cell treatment, which although not a new concept had previously required the stem cells to be harvested from the dogs themselves before being re-injected into the affected areas.  Arthritic dogs that I have known to have had this done have been given a whole new lease of life, so I'm hoping that Murphy and Lucas (the old golden retriever recently taken from AFCD and with bad hips) will soon be skipping around like youngsters.  This new treatment comes ready-made, and all that was required was for the dogs to be X-rayed to confirm that they were suitable candidates, which obviously they were.  It takes a while for the stem cells to do their work so it's a matter of wait-and-see, and although not a cheap option, for those of you who have dogs struggling with pain and unable to walk it's worth considering.  (We were lucky to be offered the treatment free of charge just in case you're wondering how we could afford it).

We had a new arrival at Ap Lei Chau, and hopefully just a temporary guest as we already have a home lined up for this gorgeous boy.  As I tell everyone who comes looking for a dog and leaves without finding what they wanted, new dogs come in all the time and we really never know what to expect, or when.  So please keep checking because as much as we try to let people know when a suitable match turns up (as in the case of this terrier), sometimes there's just too much going on and we are so busy we don't have time.
