My darling foster pooch has a lot of names. She has been named by everyone she's met. Her name is Puppy Cola, Falkor, Falkora, Goma, Felly, Bada, Ume, and Westie. I just call her Puppy or Pupsilly. This little girl is one of 19 white toy dogs dumped outside a shelter by cruel backyard breeders who no longer had a use for them. 9 of the dogs are poodle terrier mixes, 10 of them are maltese terrier mixes. Puppy is one of the latter. 17 of the 19 dogs are female. None of the dogs were neutered, all past prime breeding age, and every single one cruelly debarked. Because there is no cctv outside this particular shelter, no one has any idea who dumped all 19 pooches. Needless to say someone had made their money and was done exploiting these dogs so they were tossed out like yesterday's garbage. I guess we can only be glad that the people who used them for their own financial gain had the "heart"(if you could call it that) not to kill them. Lots of people have stepped up to foster or adopt them all through Cherish Life Home and KL Pooch Rescue with Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better sponsoring neutering costs.
I met Puppy at the home of the great ladies of KL Pooch Rescue. When I went there i saw around 10 little white dogs all running around. It was a very surreal moment. I couldn't pick who I wanted to foster. How could I? They all needed fostering. But it was ok because eventually Pupsilly picked me :) I was kneeling on the ground holding out my hand and trying to make friends with the dogs but they were mostly fearful or indifferent. That's when Pups tentatively crept up to my hand and sniffed it then licked it. That was that. I knew we were gonna be fine :) Puppy is super duper sweet. At first she was timid, fearful, flinched and cowered every time I pet her or went near her. She doesn't have an aggressive bone in her body. She acted as if she was used to being hit and expected it :( She's much better now and runs around having fun in my apartment. She's been sleeping in my bed and she's so comfy she loves it. She can't bark but makes a weird little sound when she's excited. She's not toilet-trained but I'm trying to paper-train her. So far we're not progressing in that sense. I've bought two different housebreaking aid products and they're not really helping. Puppy has been with me about 2 weeks now and was spayed this past Monday. She's gaining weight and looking healthier. I'm trying to find her a home but will be very very sad when she leaves me. I hope she goes to a good friend or a relative so I can see her sometimes.
