Dog Talk: Doggone Cruel Puppy Days


Dog Talk out in today's print version of The Star (Weekend section) is all about Doji, a three year old Spitz-like boy who was adopted by our next door neighbours a few weeks ago.

Doji, a name meaning “milkman” in Punjabi, is a little cutie with thick brown fur, large yellow-brown eyes, and soft velvet ears that are so expressive you can tell exactly what’s going through his mind when you’re talking to him.

Unfortunately Doji had a bit of ropy start in life; he was abused when he was a puppy. Luckily he was rescued, re-socialised by a good angel, and finally adopted by our neighbours.

Doji was very shy when he arrived and didn't even bark at teh postman. But you'll be pleased to know he's now very brave. Doji doesn't just bark at the postman, he also woofs at the dustbinmen, the electricity meter man, and the little dog who walks by every day and rudely pees on Doji's gate.

Doji is feeling fine!

Hi...

Thanks for linking to us...

Am glad that Doji has a good home now. Our Lucky was also an abused pup. It has taken months of love and rehab, and now he is an adorable fella. Though he's still got issues...

We also have a resident cat now, Mishka - he's gorgeous!... plus a few others that come for meals... :)

I am so happy to read that these lucky fellows found kind hearted you. I recently met a lady who feeds the strays. I know its not a good idea to do that but how could you not when you see that the dogs have just given birth and forever hiding from humans?I feels so sad each time i see them cos i am not able to provide a home for them. This kind lady neuter some of them and put them back there. All i could help is to share her cost and feed some of them.Tears will flow when some of them ran to me to be patted and fed then ran back to hide behind the bushes on an empty piece of land. I wonder how long can they hide there before the authority clear the land for development.......sigh...
