On this day exactly 8 months ago on our morning trip to the industrial estate to feed the many dogs there, we discovered a mum with 12 pups, born during the previous night, living in the shell of an old car. We cleaned out all the broken glass and rubbish from the car, put down towels, fed the mum extra food, and watched carefully over the coming days.
Only 7 of the pups survived. We found homes for four of them, having treated them for worms and fleas, and given initial vaccinations, and the other three pups came to live with us at just 4 weeks old, to join the rest of my rescued family...making a total of 9 dogs.
They have since received all their vaccinations and their pet passports, and like all my rescues, have been neutered.
And now these gorgeous dogs, Chas & Dave and Melek, are 8 months old. They are a real handful and quite naughty, but so lovable. I wouldn't be without them for the world.
