Another Poor Little Soul Left To Cope On His Own

This dear little chap was abandoned here yesterday.Thrown out like some worthless piece of trash. The reason ? We think the reason is because he has Cherry Eye.The medical term for ‘cherry eye’ is nictitans gland prolapse, or prolapse of the gland of the third eyelid. Unlike people, dogs have a ‘third eyelid’ that contains…

Barking Mad!

I will start by admitting I am more of a cat person than a dog person as those of you who follow Casa Mare Cats on Facebook will know. However, having known Val and Mino for more than eight years it is inevitable that I have got more used to dogs. I was even tempted…

The Puppies Leaving Home.

Hi Everyone Mino set off on his epic journey on Friday, to get the pups to the UK to join their families in their new homes. It’s a very long journey, especially for the puppies, very traumatic for them and stressful for all concerned. The puppies have been really hard work for both of us, and…

As many of you know my two wonderful friends Val and Mino, aka Puglia Pooches, have sacrificed all of their time and most of their money taking care of stray and abandoned animals in Puglia. They have successfully re-homed a number of stray dogs, and…

Gyp

Hi Everyone, Its been a very busy few months here. With the puppies and the new arrivals,we do not get many spare minutes in the day. Poor Gyp had two further seizures this week. He has had them spasmodically before,but now they were becoming too regular,so the vet has put him on medication. We are…
