Puglia Pooches, caring for abandoned, sick and stray animals in Puglia

This is Tuppence, she was abandoned with a badly broken front leg. She is so tiny, we think she is probably a Yorkie crossed with chiauau. How this little mite survived on her own for any length of time, is beyond belief. We had her leg operated on, with help from donations, but sadly it did…

Trixie and Selina

Meet Trixie and Selina.In 2012 these two little sisters were left as tiny pups in an abandoned masseria (farmhouse) fairly close to where we live. All last summer we would take them food and water everyday.The time came when one of the girls came into season. In November we had them spayed, courtesy of Angela Rain (dog…

Titti

This is Titti. After we had lived in Italy for a couple of months, a woman asked us if we could look after Titti whilst she went on holiday. That was many years ago, she never came back!.There was dog number 11. She would not get her now if she did come back! Titti is a little…

Tinker crossed the Rainbow Bridge, bye bye Puglia Pooch

This is Tinker, a sweeter more lovable puppy you could not find. For me it was love at first sight, he was delightful. We found him by the rubbish bins scavenging. I have never in my life before seen so many ticks on one dogs. The inside of his ears were smothered in them, it was…

Teddy - a Puglia Pooch

Teddy just turned up one day, again outside of our gate. I think we must have a sign somewhere in doggy language, saying “all welcome”. He had hardly any fur on him, he was pink and stank to high heaven. He had a terrible skin disease. We took him to our vet, who diagnosed rogna rossa….

Puglia Pooches, caring for abandoned, sick and stray animals in Puglai

Squirt is a miniature pinscher, he was found in a cardboard box, he was roughly four months old, according to our vet. He was in a really bad state with rogna rossa. He had no fur whatsoever and the smell of him was horrendous. The vet was unsure if he could cure this little boy, he…

Rusty

Rusty was about six months old when he was dumped nearby where we live. We took him in, as he had very strange front legs, the joints were very large and knobbly, we thought he would have a problem with them as he grew. He didn’t, thankfully they are fine. He is over four now, and…

Puglia Pooches : caring for abandoned, sick and stray animals in Puglia

Rags is a dear little chap that Mino found abandoned near us. He was seen being thrown from a car, he has a slight problem with his hip, so we are guessing this is why he was dumped. Why are people so vile to animals? He was about 4 months old when we took him. Not…

Puglia Pooches, caring for stray, sick and abandoned animals in Puglia

Meet Poppy. I found her in the middle of the road, looking towards my front gate. As a quite a few of you are aware, it’s a horrible road. She had a lot of little bumps all over her head and body. A visit to the vets confirmed it was an allergy to some grass…

Piccina

Piccina used to follow one of the local men, she was always very friendly when she saw us, mostly Mino, but was always very hungry. We also saw her in season twice, being followed by all the dogs in the area. She is such a tiny little thing we felt sorry for her. We had her…
