I posted the following a few days ago at the end of the post entitled "new mums and dads needed". Sadly there was no response to it, but at this time of year especially with so many puppies and kittens about I wasn't entirely surprised.
Sorry to backtrack on this one, but the saga of the soggy puppies (see earlier posts on this thread) has come back to haunt us! Cheryl from CARE kindly took them in, but the mother is also now roaming the area.
She is hanging around near Sue house, meaning Sue is unable to let her own two pups out. To make matters worse, today the dog killed a lamb and is in danger of being shot. The farmer also mistakenly thought that Sue owned her dog so things are a little fraught for her too!
Please, please, please can anyone help out. She's a lovely little thing, a slightly shaggy looking terrier type (hence the lamb incident), she's very friendly towards humans and seems to understand English instructions (apart from go away). Sue is at her wits end, Cheryl can't help and unless the dog is moved soon it will be an ex-dog.
I know stories like this are replicated throughout the island on an all to regular basis, but if there is anyone reading this who could home a small terrier bitch please pm me asap.
Sometimes though stories like this can have a happy ending...
Yesterday the little dog injured another sheep and we though that that would mean she'd definitely seen her last full moon. The sheep belonged to a Greek lady who agreed that a stop had to be put to the dog's activities. However, she doesn't own a gun, so instead she has adopted it herself and has taken it home with her, well away from her sheep, where it will be well looked after and loved.
Restores my faith in human nature!
