All I need is someone to love me and a place to finally call my home.
You can't buy food,medical care and a roof over my head with just licks
Duchess and her pups were found on 17/6/17 in a filthy stinking pound. No food no water no shade. In 42 degree heat. The trodden in faces was 2 inches thick in places. Flies and magots everywhere . The puppies still had their eyes closed. It transpires that Duchess was dumped at the pound. Heavily pregnant & with a broken leg. The men at the pound who are duty bound by law to seek medical attention for ill and injured dogs had not sought any medical attention at all and just left her there to suffer. Duchess originally had 6 puppies as far as we know. When our volunteer found them, one was already dead and had been moved from the cage and tossed by the side and left there to rot on the concrete. The other 5 were close to death Very week and so badly affected by the heat. Duchess was desperately trying to get out that cage. Biting and pulling at the bars...she was trying to save her dying puppies..trying to get them out of the heat. 2 more had died by the time our volunteer could get them out of the pound so our volunteer took Duchess and her 3 remaining pups home. Few weeks on Duchess is looking better. The 3 pups are starting to thrive. Their eyes are open and they have started waddling around. Duchess will need an operation to reset her leg so it no longer causes her pain. But at the moment she is still feeding her pups milk while they are being weaned so the poor girl can't even have pain killers.
