Abandoned by backyard breeders
For the second time in recent months, breders have dumped their dogs outside of PAWS. This time around. there were nine females and a male and we can safely assume that the sole male was used to service all nine females. Two of the females had a kind of hernia - which we believe could be due to multiple births. Anyway, PAWS which is working very hard towards becoming a no kill shelter agreed to release the dogs to KL Pooch Rescue. MDDB has undertaken the responsibility of paying for the dogs veterinary care as well as neutering all of them. The dogs were taken to one of our panel vets soon after the rescue for a thorough medical check-up. Some are currently being fostered and a couple have already been adopted. We would like to request the adopters to contribute something towards the spaying - to be paid directly to the clinic - this will help ease the financial requirements. The dogs are certainly breeders' dogs because they are not used to being touched by humans and are very frightened of everything that's going around them. This is the sad reality - breeders dogs have little contact with humans and are treated as merely puppy making machines. This is also evident by the female dogs' enlarged vaginas. All the dogs which are Maltese-Terrier mix have also been debarked - meaning that their ability to bark has been surgically tampered with. It is cruel to debark dogs and this practice is outlawed in most civilised countries. Backyard breeders generally debark their dogs because these dogs are kept locked-up secretely in cages stacked one on top of another. So, if 'allowed' to bark there would be a lot of noise due to the discomfort and pain felt by the animals. Please do not buy when you can adopt. There are thousands of destitute dogs that need homes - take them in instead of giving pet shops business which in turn only supports cruel and unethical breeding. Those wanting to adopt any of these dogs - please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
