COULD YOU GIVE A HOME TO ORPHAN PUP CUPID?
HE’S PART OF A LITTER OF THREE NEEDING SOME LOVE THIS VALENTINE’S DAY:
A LITTER of orphaned puppies whose mum died during labour are looking for someone to love them this Valentine’s Day.
Yorkshire terriers Cupid, Cariad and Valentine are now six weeks old and are homed at the Dogs Trust centre in Bridgend.
They were brought to the rehoming centre after their mother died during labour and the owners could no longer care for them.
They came into the care of Dogs Trust when they were three weeks old and hand reared at the home of Becky Baker, who is the assistant manager.
She said: “The puppies were so tiny and came to me at a crucial point in their development so needed a huge amount of TLC and attention to ensure that they grew into healthy and wellsocialised pups who could eventually go off to their forever homes.
“I’ve seen them grow into playful, confident and funny pups that I could watch all day so it’s hard not to get attached to this adorable bunch that I’ve worked so closely with, and it’s bitter sweet seeing them off to their new homes; but I know I’ll be over the moon when they find their love match for life and have a fresh start with a happy ending.”
Now the playful pups are searching for a new family who are around most of the time to help them settle in and learn all about family life.
The centre said they will benefit from attending puppy classes with Dog School South Wales, to help them flourish into well-rounded dogs.
Becky added: “These pups haven’t had a great start to life but they are now ready to be whisked off to a new home by a loving new owner.
“These fun-loving little pups are full of energy so we are looking for owners who appreciate the demands of young puppies and are at home most of the day to help them settle in.
“They need homes with secure gardens to play around in and loving new families prepared to dedi- cate time to their training and socialisation. They are super little dogs who would make the perfect pets in the right homes and we don’t think it’ll be too long before they find their love match.”
Dogs Trust encourages anyone who is coping with an unwanted litter to get in touch for advice or help with care.
