Mango – was a pathetic and sad photo on a website that PFT couldn’t get out of their mind. With a lot of work and coordination, Mango arrived into care from a pound PFT hadn’t really worked with before. She’s was frail and doddery and went to live in Goulburn along with another PFT sweetheart called “Cinnamon”. Sadly, Mango passed away a few weeks from writing this post.
Bump – was a teeny tiny terrified little Chihuahua. He was lucky enough to get a week’s holiday down south with PFT along with Marshmallow and Rumbles. A firm, firm favourite of Mr PFT, it was difficult to prise them away from each other. Bump had a more important job to to – to become a young boy’s new companion after they’d been searching for 6 month for their dog who had been stolen.
Rumbles arrived with a sore back leg. It didn’t work properly. And it got worse. She started to lose balance and tilt. It went from bad to worse. During PFT’s holiday down south, in the space of 5 hours, Rumbles world would no longer be the same. Rushed into the local vet as an emergency at 10pm, it was agreed that she had tumours on the brain and nothing could be done to assist her. To this very day…Rumble’s departure is PFT’s hardest loss.
Marshmallow – would have to be one of PFT’s most famous dogs. When she arrived, she was literally dying. PFT nursed and cared for her with the assistance of an extremely caring vet. The tables turned the day PFT went on holiday down south. The fresh country air and the relaxed environment seemed to have made all the difference. She became The Queen of the Crusty’s.
Popcorn – was an adorable, timid, shy little man. He arrived into the pound with his little buddy who was adopted directly by a PFT Facebook supporter. And PFT then brought Popcorn into care. He was adopted by a lovely lady, who wanted her very own first dog. He was the perfect fit.
Duncan – was as gentle as they come. Sadly, not all adoptions always have the happy endings. PFT placed him with care into a nursing home believing he would be the right dog for their set-up. After one night in a hotel at PFT’s cost, 2 days on the road with no offer of a lunch or a thank you, Duncan was unable to cope with the amount of attention from the residents at the home. Management wanted him gone and PFT worked with one of the carers who found him a wonderful, calm and quiet new home up the road from her.
Yoghurt – was an adorable fluffy handsome man. He was adopted extremely quickly and lives in Sydney with a lovely family where he is adored.
Pudding – came from a hoarder. She was one of about 20 who were surrendered (dumped ?) by the owner who neeeded to move because they’d been sprung by the landlord for running a backyard breeding business. She was tiny and frightened and was adopted by a semi-retired lady who unfortunately wanted to return the dog three months later because they had allowed the dog to become the boss of the house.
Boggles – came from a hoarder. She was one of about 20 who were surrendered (dumped?) by the owner who needed to move because they’d been sprung by the landlord for running a backyard breeding business. Possibly the smallest dog ever to arrive into PFT, she came with a few health problems including a collapsing jaw. She has since passed away but received seven months of love by her adopted Mummy.
Jellybean – came from a hoarder. He was one of about 20 who were surrendered (dumped?) by the owner who needed to move because they’d been sprung by the landlord for running a backyard breeding business. He blossomed in foster care at The Farm, was adopted locally and lives a grand country life.
