SPECIAL CARE DOG NEEDS LOVING OWNER & BETTER CONDITIONS
An urgent S-O-S!
Normally I don’t write SOS’s since dog lovers are already working to their limit.
BUT THIS IS DIFFERENT!! A life is at stake…
DaHuang looks like the Cowardly Lion in the Wizard of Oz… and is afraid of most people
To me he’s overwhelmed by the world and needs some miracle to become perfect.
This is the worst case in my 12 years of feeding and caring for two packs of seven “community dogs” in XinYi District. The tragedy is that Dahuang can’t raise himself on his hind legs and many people say to KILL HIM. For 12 years he has endured terrible conditions of living wild outdoors has become crippled (through sciatica/pinched nerve)
But my hope is that we give his a second life and defy nature by adding him to loving family and conditions that will let him live even longer. Dahuang was caught by the dog catchers two months ago in driving cold at the side of the road when he could not raise himself.
One volunteer bailed him out of Neihu Pound and put him in the Dr. Chou’s clinic on 428 Chiangjing Road (Xinyi District) – T. 2720-2631. After two weeks he has miraculously regained his ability to walk – BUT the he still can’t raise himself without help to walk (I have to gently pull up his rear to get him on his legs) … But he’s still too old to be put back outdoors…
Worse still, Dahuang is clogging up the clinic by lying around all day. Every evening and night I tend to him but this isn’t enough! I also have a heart condition and two other packs – and the weather - it’s really wearing me down. Dahuang seems to be house trained since he holds his pee all day for someone to take him outside. But if someone doesn’t come he’ll pee and then drink his own pee out of guilt.
Please help Dahuang (and me) by being a loving empathetic owner… ideally someone with a factory, open sided shop or shelter where the dog can easily move in and out. I need someone who wants to really help Dahuang in his later years.
- For 12 years I’ve been feeding this dog that is part of the “Night Patrol” that hangs out opposite the SungChi Road Fire Station who late at night “patrols” between XinYi Jr. High School and Primary School and 4-4 South Park.
- Nine years ago Taipei dog catchers used a tight noose to catch his mother, a beautiful red lab to later slowly and painfully die in Neihu. Since then Dahuang has been an orphaned semi-outside of the Patrol.
- And I repeat DaHuang looks really cool, like the Cowardly Lion in the Wizard of Oz… and is shy of most people and needs some miracle to turn him around.
