Carmel’s Story

Each time I tried to play ‘catch’ or ‘bite the shoe’, the people scolded me for being a big nuisance. I don’t understand all these rules! And I only peed on the bed because I was so excited to be sharing it with my human… I didn’t do it on purpose, honest. I tried to show them that I could be a good girl by being a good guard dog, but my humans called me ‘a problem dog’ instead… all because I warned them of …

Sunny’s & Smallest’s Story

It was so scary each time the new humans came to look at us. I closed my eyes and tried to look very very small so that they won’t want me – I don’t want to leave my ‘kor-kor’. One time, these two humans came and I could see that they wanted me. They looked like nice people, and they touched me so gently, it tickled! I liked them… but I cried when they took me from ‘kor-kor’… I don’t know where mama is, but …

Adam

Adam

Adam did not look like a typical dog when we found him at the Tuas Industrial Estate foraging for food in May of 2003, in fact he did not look like a dog at all. He was a young pup at about 6 months of age at that time, and due to severe demodex mange, a genetic skin condition, which enveloped almost 90 % of his body, the ravage by the mites had left his skin like a rough scab of black, and there was …

Chops

Chops was a scared 3 month old puppy running around the Bishan area when we were first alerted to her in June of 2003. Her rescuer could only stand to hold her for the night because of the stench from her open sores due to a severe fungal infection.
