[rehomed!] ADOPT: Royal + Duchess - friendly, affectionate, sweet 2mo mongrel pups rescued from area with illegal wild boar traps

Very friendly and affectionate, the sweetest little things ever.

They are less than 2 months old, and rescued from an area with a lot of illegal wild boar traps.

Their mum lost two of her legs to the traps, so now she only hobbles around on two good legs.

There were 6 pups, but 4 of them passed away.

They will likely grow into mid-sized dogs (i.e average mongrel size) and do not need to be adopted together.

As mentioned, one of them is currently undergoing blood transfusion and 24/7 monitoring due to lack of blood.

[rehomed!] ADOPT: KY - healthy, non-aggressive, gentlemanly 1.5yo male beagle, loves food and affection

His name was Milo and he was left behind by his owners who said they didn't have time for him. Young Milo is only 1.5 years old but already he's been given the boot. What then is time? No time to walk him? No time to throw him a ball? No time to cuddle and kiss him? It seems then that time is akin to love for this is all Milo is asking for.

Fortunately for him, he was left behind at a market centre where some workers took pity on him and took care of him. They also changed his name to KY and much as they took pains to care for him, as we all know this was not an ideal place where he could stay for long, nor a home that dear KY can call his own, with no cuddly bed to jump nor snuggle into, or watch his favourite programs on the telly with his head on a soft lap. He has since been rescued and is living with his dear fosterer who wants to find him a loving and committed home.

KY is about 1.5 years old, and is neutered and micrco-chipped. He is healthy and according to his fosterer, he has the nicest demeanor towards people and is totally non-aggressive. He loves food and is deemed easy to train, if you have time (aka, if you have LOVE for we already said that time = love). He hasn't had that in a long long while which is why he is such a 'sucker' for affection, touch and cuddles. Is that enough to melt your heart already?

KY is slightly shy towards other dogs. He will sniff them and all that but other than that, not much interaction as he has probably never been socialised with dogs before. If there's a loud bark from a strange dog, he retreats with his tail between his legs. We know he just needs time to get to know everyone and everything.

Our wish for dear affectionate KY is a loving home with time for him and overflowing love. Time to train him, teach him, throw him a ball, run with him, walk him, just be with him and never ever deem him 'too much trouble'.

Although he is pretty small sized for a beagle, this breed is unfortunately not on AVA approved list for HDBs, we are looking preferably for a home in a private apartment or landed. This request is for the sake of KY's security and the adopter's peace of mind.

[reunited!] SOS! NOW IN SPCA! FOUND/FOSTER: m/c, sterilised 3yo, small, dark brown male dog (rosewood drive, woodlands, mon 27 jun 2011)

hi, my friend found a lost/ abandoned dog at Rosewood Drive (Woodlands area) in a big canal...the dog was found on 27 JUne 2011, in the evening.

not sure if the dog is lost or abandoned but it had a collar around it (removed cos it was dirty)

the dog is a male, sterilized, around 3 years old

the size is around a Maltese size, definitely HDB approved.

dark brown fur

my friend brought the dog to SPCA and it has a microchip from overseas, they are still trying to trace the owner. according to SPCA, the dog is quite healthy

my friend wanted to keep the dog but she's a foreigner n stays in a rented place, her house mates are afraid of dogs thus she had no choice but to give it to SPCA where the dog is currently at. They didn't let us know how long they'll keep the dog for, but as most of us know, it may not be for long (probably 2 days before they decide whether to put to sleep).

my friend has informed SPCA to let her know if they can't trace the owner.

in the event the owner can't be found, i am URGENTLY LOOKING FOR THE OWNER OR temporary FOSTERERS/ ADOPTERS...must be above 18 years of age and must have parental approval, i will do the screening and house checks beforehand as this is not my first time rescuing dogs but i have 4 dogs at home so unable to take him in and i have contacted the shelters who are full as well.

[rehomed!] ADOPT: Hulk - 2yo male mini bull terrier

Name: Hulk
Sex: Male
Age: 2 years old
Breed: Mini Bull Terrier

How sad it is when people do not care for their pets, leaving them hungry and lonely. Zeus Communications was recently contacted by a lady, asking us for help to rehome her brother's 2 year old mini bull terrier, Hulk. Her unemployed brother owns the dog but doesn't care for its welfare, often letting it go hungry. Occasionally, Hulk will be fed, but only with white rice or bread. We don't understand why they won't keep him even when we offered to provide food and medical aid. The sister refused our offer, only wanting us to rehome the dog.

For such a young dog, Hulk's life shouldn't be this unhappy and loveless. Please take him away from his miserable existence and consider giving him a loving home where he will be cherished and cared for. Please contact the owner's sister directly.

[rehomed!] ADOPT: Baxter - friendly, sociable, content 7yo male shih tzu x maltese, ex-breeding dog

Name: Baxter
(Baxter's story
Sex: Male
Age: 6-7 years old (estimated)
Breed: Shih Tzu / Maltese cross

Baxter was a breeding dog, used and abused by breeders for their profit. His welfare was heavily neglected - when we rescued him, he was grossly underweight from malnutrition and had a bout of dry eyes.

Despite all that he has been through, he is a friendly and sociable dog. A real sweetheart who is contented just sitting beside you and doing nothing! He loves eating and is not a fussy eater. .

From eyes of desperation, we now see hope. Please give Baxter what he truly deserves.

[rehomed!] ADOPT: Miko - healthy 1+yo female toy poodle born in puppy mill, w deformed hind legs, needs wheelchair + supplements when older

Hello, everybody!

My name is Miko. I’m a female brown toy poodle born on 14 Feb 2010 (Valentine’s Day!!) at a puppy mill in Seletar. As I was born with 2 deformed hind legs, the breeders wanted to put me to sleep. 2 very kind and young girls managed to persuade the breeders to give me up to them instead.

As the girls could not keep me, they found me an adopter who kept me for a year before giving up on me. My second owner kept me in a rabbit cage after adopting me but after a few months, she gave me up to a rehomer. I am now with a fosterer waiting for a new owner who will truly love me for what I am.

I’m a good and sweet little girl but may be fussy over food at times. So, I weigh only 1.8kg. I’m not very heavy, am I? My rehomer said I should only be spayed when I reach 2kg. My hind legs may be deformed but I am still very mobile. I love playing with other dogs so will love to be with a family that already has a dog or two!!
