Newcomer: Amazing Ava

One of our newcomers from the University clinic is beautiful Ava. She is one of the three dogs we took from the obstetrics department. They are shelter dogs that we said we could re-home rather than return to the shelter from where they came. Ava has gone into fostering and is a soft-tempered, lovely young girl. Aprox 1 year old and 15 kg :) She is for adoption.

New Budadogs - stray mum and puppies

Last week one of our adopters who lives in the countryside contacted us about a stray female she has seen often now having given birth. Mum was very protective of her babies so we decided the best option was to feed her on sight until she allowed someone to come closer. A few days later one of her pups got trapped under a log and had to be rescued by our friend. The day after the pup was stuck again. Having been in physical contact with mum and pup she decided it was safe to relocate them to her own garden.

Mum and pups are fine but mum has discarded one of the pups which is now being hand-reared.

Mum is a small black mix, aprox 2-3 years old. Pups are aprox 3 weeks old. When they are old enough we are looking for someone to adopt/foster them and mum will also need fostering. I will keep you updated on their development on the blog :)

New dogs from University clinic!

Before the weekend we were asked to take a poodle mix female we have named Tokyo (bottom picture). She is from a shelter and has been taken to the clinic for Obstetrics surgery practice. She was supposed to be returned to the shelter but instead the vets at the clinic were wondering if we could take her. We said yes and when we arrived to collect her we were shown 7 other females in the same situation. At the moment we have almost 70 dogs in fostering so I said I`d take a look at them and maybe take 2 or 3 but big fat softie that I am I couldn`t bare sending them back to the shelter so I said we would take them all. SOOO we are looking for fostering for all these darling girls.

There`s a Small, happy outgoing poodle mix (Tokyo) and a lovely german pointer mix, a black lab mix, a lean gun-dog mix, a bassett mix, a sheperd mix, a small fox terrier mix, and a small brown mix. They are all really lovely girls, poor things.

Currently they are being kept in cages in one of the older uni buildings and will be ready for fostering in about 2 weeks.
