Grandpa Pinky is happy now
When the staff of a shelter were summoned to take Grandpa Pinky away from the five foot way, which had become his home, they immediately knew that he had little chance of survival if taken in. They also felt a strong sense of pity for the old poodle cross, that must have seen some very good times during its prime. They called us and we said we would take responsibility for Grandpa Pinky. He was immediately sent to one of our panel clinics where he was examined. The vet found that he was blind and deaf and has eye and skin infection. His skin was raw and bleeding and terribly infected. Grandpa Pinky's hair, or whatever that was left of it, was removed and his skin treated. However, we dared not bring Grandpa Pinky back to our half-way-home as he would be stressed with our barking dogs, talking dogs and naughty puppies. He would also be in danger of being bullied by the younger and alpha males - his treatment had cost us about RM1,000 and his boarding had hit RM 700 when we asked our KL Pooch Rescue friends to find him a foster home. They immediately set to work and found Lee Woan Mee to take him in. Grandpa Pinky is finally in safe and loving hands. Incidentally Woan Mee had also adopted a puppy that was rescued by us and independant rescuer Eileen Ng about three years ago. We have happy that Grandpa Pinky can now spend the twilight period of his life surrounded by love and care. Any form of help to meet Grandpa's veterinary bills are greatly appreciated.
