No one said it would be easy, they only said it would be worth it.
Meet Bulie! Bulie was rescued along with litter mates when they were found in a rural island located at the west coast of Taiwan where only 4 residents live. This island is where they process all the trash from mainland Taiwan. No one knew how dogs ended up on the island since it is isolated and no one can access the island without a boat. They believe these dogs were probably native from the island since the 4 residents on the island don’t own dogs. Unfortunately this means these dogs survived from eating garbage or the leftovers dumped. These dogs have since been living in the landfill. The coast guards inspecting the area found that the numbers of stray dogs were growing and exceeding more then the people who lives on the island.
The rescuers went on the island to try and catch the mother dog for the TNR program (Trap Neuter Return) however the mother dog is very savvy and smart and continued to escape the rescuers. Rescuers rescued her pups before but because they couldn’t spay her, she gave birth to another litter. The rescuers could only take the puppies to get them fixed and vetted. Unfortunately the shelters are full and cannot accept any more dogs. The rescuer didn’t want to see these pups back on the island to live in the landfill again so they took them back to mainland Taiwan hoping to find them a home.
Sadly, these pups have never had proper socialization with human and never experienced what it means to be in a home. They don’t know what treats are, what toys are, and will only look quietly. These puppies will require a very special and patient home willing to socialize and show them what it means to be in a home. Bulie is a shy pup who would love to find a forever home. Bulie is patiently waiting!
"Peanut (short for Peanut Mochi) is living her best life in the Bay Area! She is a shy pup but we’ve loved watching her come out of her shell. (We like to joke that she is the perfect quarantine pup because she is the best at self isolation!) Peanut loves trips to the park where she can play with her best friends Lohr, a giant German Shepherd, and Kea, an equally giant Swiss Shepherd. When Peanut is feeling extra playful she enjoys stealing Mommy’s scrunchies and Daddy’s socks and ripping up tissues. We’re so thankful to Love and Second Chances for helping us find Peanut. Our lives have changed so much since we met her and now we can’t imagine it any other way! We love our little Peanut and are grateful for all the love and happiness she brings to our family! Thanks again Melody for everything! X, Ashley"
If you have extra time on your hand and would like to help please consider volunteering! Rescue groups need dedicated volunteers to help with events, fundraisers, home checks, transports, etc. All of these things help enable the rescue to expand their network and help more dogs in need.
