GREAT NEWS!!!

As you know, we took her to the SPCA. Unfortunately they deemed her "unfit for adoption" because apparently it would take them too long to rid her of the ticks, mites, and ringworm (fungus). Basically, they told us that if we don't adopt her ourselves, they would put her down.

We asked them to PLEASE hold off on it while we find someone to adopt her... We would have done it ourselves, but the way my life is situated right now, it is NOT the right time to be responsible for a dog. So we begged and pleaded on Facebook, and one of my friends' friend was able to take her in!

She was literally running into the last hours of her life, and she was rescued. I want to cry!

Out of curiosity, how much does it cost to get her back into tip top shape? ie. get rid of all the ticks/fleas/ring worm?

I can ask the guy who adopted her. It shouldn't be too much, since she had no serious illnesses. I think he is having her stay at their vet, so that would be somewhat costly. Taking her to your own home wouldn't be much, since all you'd have to do is keep pulling ticks out of her as they hatch. Pretty gross job (you can see the video of what happens on the previous page... nastiest cleanup job I have ever done), but not too expensive.

The adoption would be $1800 HKD, $1000 of which gets returned after you have her spayed. So about $100 CAD in the end.

Nothing to do with me rescuing a dog but this thread felt like the best place for this story




a guy on a paddle board paddled by some rocks peeking just over sea level and he finds a puppy stranded on it! and he rescues it (just saw it on cnn)

Paddle boarder saves Bam Bam the shih tzu stranded at sea
'He just sat there like a little dude’ says rescuer.


It wasn’t looking good for Bam Bam.
The shih tzu had ended up stranded on rocks in England’s North Sea, and the tide was rising.
But a water sports enthusiast paddling through the area spotted the shivering pup and came to his rescue just in time.
“There’s a little dog...and he’s stuck because of the tide,” Charlie Head said during a video he filmed of the rescue.
Head, 33, expertly maneuvered his paddle board toward the frightened animal.
‘He just sat there like a little dude, wondering what the hell to do,” he said as he steered toward the dog.
“He definitely needs a rescue,” he adds.
“It’s alright dude...it’s ok, it’s ok,” Head says as he coaxes the wet, shivering animal on his board.

Head was paddling his way from Cornwall to London to train for a 3,000-mile cross-Atlantic trip, Kent Online reported.
He took the dog to shore in Hampton. He is being kept by the town's dog warden as authorities search for his owners.

I was looking through my instagram photos, and I noticed that it has been nearly 1 year since we met these three... As you know, the boy (top in photo) got run over (coming home to that scene is something I'll never forget) but we were able to save the other two. Our neighbours took them in, and they are doing very well!



The memorial we put up for the boy lasted quite a while, but my wife says it was torn down about a month or two ago We'll still never forget him, and I am glad we get to see the girls still (although our neighbour moved to another village, it's not that far)

Them feels
