Catching Up with Old Friends

We always enjoy hearing news of how our animals are after they have been adopted and are in a totally new environment.  This month, we had news from Holland about one of our senior shelter dogs plus we had a visit from the owner of a dog found abandoned in the countryside.  We would like to share them with you.

Tuka – one of our senior, visually impaired dogs, adopted by Dutch vet Mascha, who came here to do an internship in April/May 2012 and fell in love with her.  This week, Mascha sent us an update on Tuka with photos and although she is completely blind, you wouldn’t think it the way she is enjoying herself playing in all that snow!  You can read Tuka’s story on this link- Tuka.

Bia – found wandering in the middle of a busy road.  Bia had been abandoned and was lactating but there were no signs of her pups.  She saved the lives of three puppies which had been found by her owner, Ana Rita, in a rubbish bin and accepted them as her own offspring.  Today, she is the pride and joy of Ana Rita and goes everywhere with her.  More on Bia’s story here – Bia.
