Hi Everyone, another busy week has past with Chloe going to her new home as well as our lovely pups Effie and Andy who weren't with us for long at all.  We do have two female chihuahua x pups still looking for their forever homes.  If you are willing to put the time into training them and be prepared for any normal puppy behaviour, like chewing of things, then come see us so we can arrange a meeting.  They are very cute and are now about 11 weeks old. 
Coco and Rocket about 5 wks old.

The biggest news this week was Benson going to his foster home with Anna.  He has settled in well  and I am sure he will appreciate the home comforts during the winter nights.  Anna and Rick, we can't thank you enough.

With Benson gone to his foster home I was able to pick up Bobby, a 3yr old staffy x who was due to be euthanased today. 
He was surrendered to the pound as he attacked a cat who went into his yard.  He is a very timid boy,  particularly of men, (not nasty though) so perhaps he hasn't had such a great life previously.  It took me a while to get him into the car and he spent the journey nestled on the floor behind the driver's seat.  I put my hand around to pat him and all I got was lots of licks.  Such a sweetie. 
Through the help of a Perth Pets in Need Facebook, we had a lovely young lady named Rebecca pick up another dog from the same pound who was also due to be put to sleep today.  She is a lovely kelpie girl now named Tuppence. 

Bobba and Jordan went to their new homes today due to the great work from Lyn, our Friday carer.  It has been a good week with two dogs saved from an unnecessary death and the others to their forever homes and foster home.

Lastly, is there any kind heart out there who is willing to foster dear old Leo? (or give him his forever home)  He is just the sweetest dog, (does need to lose some weight) absolutely loves company and a little daily walk.  Anyone who is interested please contact the shelter 93986616.
