MACDUFF joined us in tragic circumstances after his owner suffered a cardiac arrest at home alone. It was a few days before he was found, and this poor boy had stayed by him in a state of shock. He was removed from the house by a neighbour who contacted us as she couldn’t care for him with four cats living in the house. Poor MacDuff was very troubled and was very reluctant to leave his home and his master. It took a while before he accepted that he wasn’t coming to take him home, but then he turned the corner and is now happily settled with a lovely couple. Cases like his are always very upsetting, and we are left wondering just what it must have been like for him in those early days.
DAISY came to us as an ex-breeding bitch with her three very young puppies from a puppy farm. A very sweet little girl, she was extremely timid when she arrived but soon learned from the resident westies that this wasn’t such a bad place to be. She was uncomfortable with people that she didn’t know, but is now a delightful little girl, and very friendly with people once she gets to know them. She has gone from strength to strength, gaining weight and condition and was neutered when the time was right, so no more puppies for Daisy!
One of Daisy’s puppies was found to have a serious heart murmur when she was just 10 weeks old, and just two weeks later we took her for major surgery to correct it. Fortunately this was successful, she made a full recovery and lives life to the full.
