Mama Oreo and her 7 puppies arrived at TNR Trust in June 2017. The puppies were tiny and under 2 weeks old with eyes and ears still closed. She is a terrier mix, only a few years old and was an excellent mother to her furry kids.
Once the pups were weaned, she was happy to run around and play with the other dogs. She seemed to enjoy her well-earned freedom after herding and feeding 7 rascals! She was very playful but also loved a good cuddle at regular intervals.
The puppies were for quite a while at the vet as there was no space for fostering. This wasn’t ideal as one of them would cry when being locked up. But our volunteers would regularly take them for a few hours out of the kennel to play, socialize and cuddle. They were very sweet and gentle furkids, and even enjoyed playing with the 2-year-old of one of our volunteers.
Ellie was a very independent little soul, but still inherited her mother’s playfulness and readiness to cuddle. She was adopted in August 2017. When we went for a house visit to check upon her, she was happily running around her new compound.
We wish her lots of adventures with her lovely new family!
