Joey has been named by his foster carer (thanks Taryn) because he reminds everyone of a baby kangaroo. He has unbelievably short fur and soft skin but has the biggest ears ever. is back legs are also long and lanky and he bounces about on them like a joey. Joey is all curled up and sleepy after a day full of changes and challenges. Check out his little cropped tail - all the pups have different tail lengths but in general they are all stumpy. Thanks Taryn for giving him a place to lay his head. [8th May 2016]
Joey - ADOPTED JULY 2016
We are in the process of rescuing a litter of seven pups - four of which are in urgent need of foster care. We have already brought two of these little urchins into our care in the last three days but are short of fosters as always. They are mixed breed puppies with possibly a couple of different dads as there are big differences in them.
Fortunately most of the litter has improved since these photos were taken.... we have provided high quality puppy food to the owner and had a chat about their condition.
Apparently a couple of the bigger pups were eating all the food which was available and the smaller weaker ones and their mum were missing out....... we were alerted to the situation by several concerned passers-by and have been able to talk to the owner and see an improvement over the last week.
I am hopeful of finding homes for each of the pups as they are now 3 - 4 months old.
