ADOPTED! ADOPTED! ADOPTED! ADOPTED! ADOPTED! ADOPTED! ADOPTED!
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.
Rakker got adopted as soon as he was weaned! His new ‘dad’ (Bart) had already adopted another TNR dog called Chania. Bart and his family were so pleased with Chania that they decided to adopted a second but smaller house dog, and Rakker fit the bill.
This is wonderful proof of how much our foster families help to home the dogs. By the time they get adopted, they are already socialized with humans, other dogs and often other creatures.
We went to do a house visit to Rakker and he enjoys the company of Chania so much that they do everything together!
