[rehomed!] ADOPT: Blacki - quiet, affectionate 10yo singapore girl saved from spca

Name: Blacki
Breed: Mixed stray
Gender: Female
Weight: 17.5kg
Height from head to backside: 1.2m
Age: About 10 years old

Health status:
Healthy with a slightly enlarged heart but doctor says she is fine. Taken her injections. Teeth is not as strong. Need to soak her food to soften them first.

Character: Quiet, has not barked since. Affectionate.

Toilet Training: We bring her down twice a day.

She was roaming on the road outside a friend’s house. The guards from the condo nearby said she was seen walking around since morning. First we saw the collar so I thought she might be lost. Then we guess her age and from her grooming, her ears super dirty and clogged with black stuff, her body had a stench and so we reckoned she must be either homeless or just abandoned.

We called SPCA and they said since she has a collar she must have owner. So they placed an ad on papers for two days. But no one came for her. According to their protocol, Blacki will be handled in two weeks time - most probably put to sleep since she is an old dog and chances of adoption is not high. My friend placed her plight on facebook and we decided to adopt her to save her from being put to sleep.

However, we then found out that staying in a HDB doesn’t allow us to have a dog of her size and we have neighbours who are sensitive to dogs as well. In addition, our house is small and not enough for her to roam around.

We have saved her from being put to sleep and we hope that someone can provide her with a home.
