Mongrel Puppies Need a Home

Fatty Puppy

Friendly Puppy

Frightened Puppy

Here is a BIG BIG thank you to all those who helped to advertise the puppies' plight. They have all found owners now.

These puppies are now being fostered at a construction site. Fatty Puppy loves to eat. He has a very placid, calm temperament and clearly prefers to be lying down and observing than running around. Friendly Puppy looks the most dominant of all. She is unafraid and readily approaches strangers to check them out. The funny thing though is that she is the runt of the litter - smallest in size of all the 3. This one has spunk and spirit. Or maybe she's just stupid, and has no notion of danger. Friendly Puppy may be more suited to a family with some dog experience. Frightened Puppy is not a dominant female even though she is bigger sized than her brother and sister. She is anxious and easily frightened but is quite affectionate when she knows you will be nice to her.

Do help me spread the word to rehome these puppies. Just email this link to all whom you think will be able to provide a loving good home. Otherwise, they will almost certainly have to be put down. If you want the puppies, please leave me a contact in the comments section. I won't publish your comment so you need not worry about privacy.

Fatty looks really like a roly poly! Maybe Friendly is just plain nosy like my lambs! consups

petunialee said...

Sinfonia - Yup!! Very nosy. I wish I had space for all of them.

Blur Ting said...

Aw, they are so adorable. So much like Milo! I'll help ask around.

petunialee said...

Ting - Oh please do... I would be so sad if any had to be put down.

Theanne and Baron said...

Awwwwww...and I thought you'd gotten a puppy! I hope you find good homes for them Petunia! I'll check and see if I'm visiting anyone else in Sinapore...I don't believe so!

petunialee said...

Theanne - Thanks for the thought. You're a bit far away though...

Wen-ai said...

I really do hope that they will find good homes! I'll be heart broken if any of them had to be put down too. ;( My fav: Fatty!!!!!!

petunialee said...

Wen-Ai: Fatty is really cute. He's so fat he had trouble scratching his own nose!! My fave is Frightened. He makes me wanna hold him and make sure he's not scared.

Malar said...

The puppies are all so cute! Hope they will find home soon!
Happy New Year to you and your family!

Blur Ting said...

have they found a home?

petunialee said...

Malar - Thank you!

petunialee said...

Ting - Not yet. Sob!!

Cheralyn said...

Are they in Singapore? o-o

petunialee said...

Cheralyn: Yes they are!! I brought Frightened Puppy home last night. She spent the whole evening and this morning on my lap. She must have been badly frightened because every time I put her down she whines and wants to climb back on. Then, when she is on, she promptly dozes off.

vanitha said...

hi, I live in a hdb flat. Is there any way to find out if they will be HDB approved.We are family of four. all of us fell in love with fatty puppy and your description of him.:D. If we could we'd like to try stop them from being put down!

petunialee said...

Vanitha - Would you please leave me your contact? It won't appear publicly. I promise.

Cheralyn said...

Lovely. I want to bring him home! ><

Cheralyn said...

I live in a HDB though. Had brought a dog home before, he's a lost dog near my house. Took care of him for some weeks then his owner came to us for him. :/ . My sisters seem to love frightened puppy too. & my family members are basically dog lovers. ^^

petunialee said...

Cheralyn - May I have your contact. I promise that it won't appear publicly.

Blur Ting said...

I have seen HDB dwellers with mongrels too. As long as they don't bark too much and distrub the neighbours, I think should be fine.

Ohxn said...

Hi, Is Fatty adopted? :>

petunialee said...

Ohxn - Nope! Fatty is still available!! Leave me a number to call. I promise it won't appear publicly.

Ohxn said...

I live in hdb isit really suitable for him? Cause he will still grow bigger right?

petunialee said...

Ohxn: If you are really interested, leave a number. If not, then it's ok too. I hope to find these dogs a home. But if they have to be put down, then so be it. I would have tried my best.

Lin said...

Hi there ! Your article was recommended by my sister. Question : are the puppies still looking for a new home, or already fostered away ? Thanks for your feedback. Cheers

petunialee said...

Lin - No... they are still available. Mongrels are not popular with Singaporeans, who prefer branded dogs. But they are very resilient dogs (because not inbred). You will save a bundle on vet bills. And they are very loyal and affectionate.

petunialee said...

Daniel - Sunny will surely reply you. Wait a bit.

Unknown said...

Thanks Petunia.

Sunny has replied me. I will pick up Frightened on this coming Wednesday.
Thanks for your help.

Will take good care of her. =)

petunialee said...

Unknown - That is WONDERFUL. Frightened is a sweetie. Ya just gotta make sure there are laps available to put her on.

Unknown said...

Thanks petunia.
Unknown is Daniel btw :) same person that commented earlier this morning :)

Will have my lap available for frighten always :p

Daniel

petunialee said...

Daniel - Do you have prior dog experience? If not, you may wanna read up on how to train dogs. Make very sure your dog knows that you're the boss. This is the best way to protect her. Unless she yields to your leadership, she could end up irritating other people and then it is always the dog that will get abandoned or put down. Train her well from young and you will enjoy her much more. My 2 cents. Hope ya dun mind.

Unknown said...

Petunia - yes. I do have prior dog experience. :)
Used to have a Maltese before, but it died of old age...
No worries on that, though having the experience, I will still read up more on it. Hope to improve too... :p

Will train frightened well :D

Have prosperous new year to u n ur family!!

Daniel
