Italian Dogs

Paddy

Meet Paddy.Some people who lived not far from us owned Paddy. Then just before Christmas one year they moved away, leaving the dog in the garden. Hard to imagine isn’t it. Paddy, of course, when he got hungry found a way out of the garden, and down to our gate. But there was no way we…

RIP Patch, much loved Puglia Pooch

Come and say hello to Patch.We have known this little dog for over three years. He is a stray, that attached himself to a local man, the same man that Piccina used to follow. Whenever we could we used to feed Patch. A couple of months ago Patch was found with a badly swollen and messy…

Peggy RIP Puglia Pooch

This is Peggy. She was a poor stray dog in our village that we saw around from time to time. We noticed Peggy was becoming thin and decided to keep a closer eye on her. The day came when we both decided she had leishmanoise, so we took her to the vet. We were right she…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Skinny

In March 2014,Skinny was literally thrown out of a car at the end of our lane,he had been quite badly abused and had quite a few wounds on his little skinny body! We took him in,treated his wounds and had him neutered. He was barely a year old. He looks to be  a Miniature Pinscher…

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…

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….
