Tis the season to bottlefeed puppies!

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Along with the teeny bundle of orange fluff (posted in Fur Pics), another person also passed on an armful of squirming puppies. This person is a caregiver to stray dogs around the area, and discovered this litter of pups next to their dead mum. He hardly knew what to do with the newly orphaned pups, so they came to the wildlife rescue centre (traditionally they don't take care of domestics, but these people, bless their hearts, haven't learnt how to say "no").

There are 5 in all. One black and tan, 3 spotties (maybe someone can tell me what their coat colour can be best described as?) and one sandy brown. All unnamed. Best not to get attached, they definitely cannot stay at the rescue centre forever.

All of em.. Spot the odd one out!


One of the spotties


NOM NOM NOM!!


All of em again, including fake mama


The sandy brown and one of the spotties

*passes out from cuteness* Oh they are so sweet....I'm so glad they have a warm place to be and food in all those little bellies.

And the color on those spotted puppies is merle; Australian Shepherds, Collies, and Shelties are some of the breeds that come in that color.

Blue Merle to be exact, and the sandy one is called fawn.
They look like Kelpie or Kelpie mix pups.

May I ask, what is a Kelpie? What dogs in that mix?

I live with 3 bottle fed orphaned cats, and I can't even image how totally loyal and loving a bottle fed dog would be!

You should have posted a cuteness warning. These pups are absolutely adorable!

Hi guys! Thanks for all your comments, I just got back from an overseas vacation trip (went to Hong Kong from 21st till today). I haven't seen the little ones yet, but I'll definitely get more pictures when I do. One of them has already been adopted!

Btw, thanks for the information about the colouring. Its very rare to see that kind of colouring in Singapore strays. Usually stray dogs come in brown, black/tan, white, cream etc, not merle.

By the way, is it pronounced like "pearl", just with an "m" in front?

I've got new pictures! One of them had been adopted as I mentioned in my earlier post, however, the same guy who left them came back to dump another 2 pups, so now the total has gone up to 6 pups.

Here's what they look like when I first open the door to their room - 6 squiggling excited fuzzy puffballs!


Errr, too fuzzy, maybe I should try taking the photo again...

Argh! Even worse!

I named this one Oliver (yeah I know I said there's no point naming them and getting attached to them, but... they're so cute!!) He's the biggest of the lot, and is one of the two newcomers.


He may look innocent, but its just a front... He's actually a mean hand-killing machine




"Naaarr! I'm gonna GET you!!"


This is one of the merle pups, she is unnamed as of now.


Oliver, taking a very sudden snooze as pups often do..


Chew treats - A healthy alternative to toes!


This is another black & tan, not the same one pictured in my last post - that one has been adopted. This one is smaller in size, and is one of the newbies that was dumped together with Oliver. Isn't she sweet??


"Dis is my rawrhiide, go git yer own!"


This is Lola, the fawn puppy. She's studying to be a lighting technician. I'm so proud of her... She'll have a bright future! (In case you were wondering, yup that tall papery looking thing is a lamp)

Pups are no longer being bottlefed, they've moved onto eating solid food. They're still so adorable, nonetheless, and their personalities are starting to show!

Hiigh....


FIVE!


This is Lola investigating a toy


One of the merle pups, very interested in household chores


Posing pretty!




Sunshine loves the pups, and they're very curious about her too


"No photos please, I'm shy.."


"Oh fine, if you insist!"

Belly rub time!


Lola's turn for a belly rub


"Hey I want one too!"


"Hi TCS!"


"Hello!"


Oliver having his turn while Sunshine wonders if she could fit into a lap as well.


Sleepytime... Awwww

Yeah she would have been a great mother if she hadn't been spayed, she's such a loving, caring dog Sometimes though, all 6 pups get too much for her and she leaps away

Scrappy can't really decide what to do with them. You know he's curious because he's always trying to sniff them when we let them out to play, but he also seems scared of them - growls and barks at them most ferociously. We have to keep an eye out when he's near them. One bite and he could easily kill them. Then again, he's an extremely vocal dog, so it could just be that he's playing in his own Scrappy-style He's also feeling jealous, he'll snuggle up to us and look really sad, like he's no one's darling now that the pups are here.. But we constantly reassure him that he's our boy.

Whisky will have nothing to do with them at all, barks at them if they come too near, otherwise will try to avoid them while eyeing us jealously.

Penni also will have nothing to do with them. She goes out into the carpark area and sits there alone when the pups are out of their room
