The Beauty and the Beast – pure breed or local “Mctuffy”?

Many people believe in and love particular pure breed dogs: German Shepherd, Labrador, Spitz or Weimaraner or latest “trends” like Labradoodles. Reasons are varied: excellent guard dog, great with kids,gentle nature,  tiny size. Whatever the reason to buy such dogs -for sure the owners swear by their  beauty!
Maybe through the belief in a particular  breed one tends to dismiss our fabulous Mctuffies.  How about a dog that has all the traits in one animal?  Excellent guard, fiercely loyal, gentle with kids, better equipped against disease and expert yodellers!
These three musketeers of the Galot family – in true musketeer spirit -adopted a less fortunate member of dog society : Lailai  (née Solai).
When they asked their aunty Deepa (an active EACK member and sponsor of TNR Trust) why they only had purebred dogs instead of a rescued local dog, she couldn’t come up with a satisfactory answer. She took action and called our Trust to see if we had a female pup. Two days later the delighted boys met Lailai and took her home.
Imagine if every owner of a pure bred dog adopted ONE Lailai, KSPCA and the Trust’s  foster homes would be empty.

  1. Lailai is happy now with two new friends called sandie and cookie she has also learned how to protect herself because a cat was hissing at her but sandie and cookie chased the cat away making lailai more trusting – the boy who is holding lailai
