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.
