Can you of­fer a home to babes in woods?

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - SOUNDS GOOD -

MEET Bash­ful, Doc, Grumpy, Happy and Sneezy – five gor­geous bun­dles of fun who are look­ing for a home. The five pup­pies and their two sis­ters, Dopey and Sleepy, were born eight weeks ago at the Lord Whisky An­i­mal Sanc­tu­ary, Stelling Min­nis. Their mother, a Ger­man shep­herd rot­tweiler cross, had been found wan­der­ing in woods near Herne Bay a few weeks ear­lier. With her was an­other cross-breed, pos­si­bly the pup­pies’ fa­ther. Lord Whisky founder Mar­garet Todd said it quickly be­came ap­par­ent that the bitch was ex­pect­ing, and the pup­pies were born on Jan­uary 9. Dopey and Sleepy have al­ready been homed, as have the two adult dogs, and Mrs Todd is now ap­peal­ing for lov­ing and per­ma­nent homes for the re­main­ing five black and tan pups. “They are lovely healthy pup­pies and are very af­fec­tion­ate and play­ful. They are gor­geous,” said Mrs Todd. Al­though pint-sized now, the pup­pies will grow up into big pow­er­ful dogs so need to go to re­spon­si­ble homes where they will have plenty of at­ten­tion and ex­er­cise. “They will be about as big as a Ger­man shep­herd. Big dogs have had a bad press re­cently so peo­ple need to re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate what they are tak­ing on,” said Mrs Todd. “Th­ese dogs need to go to own­ers who have plenty of time for them. They need stim­u­la­tion and if they don’t get it that is when the prob­lems can start,” she said. All homes are checked by Lord Whisky. The sanc­tu­ary also has a num­ber of adult Ger­man shep­herds look­ing for homes. For more in­for­ma­tion phone 01303 862622.
