The first of the five newish ex-breeder poodles was adopted today while there were two new arrivals, a Yorkie and and chihuahua, also from a breeder. They escaped because they have a skin problem, which is so common in breeder dogs that we expect it, along with the ear mites. There is really no skin condition that can't be treated and most of these dogs have quite simple issues.

With the Chinese New Year almost upon us, we will be collaborating with several businesses to help celebrate, such as fashion retailers Topshop who are displaying the HKDR sign in their store window and collecting donations on our behalf. We really appreciate such support, and the extra income for the dogs we hope it will generate, so please do take a moment to drop by if you are passing.
Of course every dog rescue organisation is worried that there will be many people rushing out to buy puppies for the Year of the Dog, only to throw them out when the next Lunar Year comes along, if not before. I'm sure that none of my readers will be that stupid, but I'm not so sure about many others. If you see or hear of this happening please make sure that any unwanted puppies are passed to HKDR or any of the other animal rescue groups rather than ending up on the street.
