I saved three puppies today. My neighbor's dog (my family call her girl-girl), gave birth to three puppies last week. The puppies are only 1 week old and have no abilities to crawl, bark or such. They only roll around the cold cement concrete to move about. That said, they do have the interest for the drains nearby. Unfortunately, this time, they were stuck in the dry drain again, under the hot sun and were making a whole lot of unpleasant cries for help. Previously, the puppies end up in a wet drain after the rain, but the girl-girl manage to get them out. This time, the mother was lost and left the puppies crying.

I had no choice. I can't stand there and see the puppies roast. Moreover, the puppies are already crawling into the rain hole near the wall. One way in, and no way out. Each puppies cramped through the opening and began suffocating. My heart broke. I had no choice but to fend off the angry mother with an umbrella and carefully pick each puppies from the drain without getting bitten.

Now they are calmly asleep under the shed in my house. Too bad my parents are passive towards dogs. They are not even thrilled by pedigree puppies ... apatah lagi mongrel.

I felt like a superman but I felt bad at the same time. What is going to happen to the puppies??? It is not the first time the puppies are mistreated and my neighbor has no ability to take care of the puppies. Girl-girl was cared by them out of pity. She is always chained, drink water out of a weed,algae-infested tub of water, live under a table and roam around where her shit lies stinking. My family feed her once a while with bones as the carer can't afford to feed her at times. Either than that, she is nothing but an ugly fierce unfriendly mongrel. How are the puppies going to grow up in such environment?

I called SPCA today for solutions. If they were to take the puppies away, they have no choice but to kill the puppies as there are already an increase in unwanted breeds and mongrel population. I understand but I can't help but still feel bad. Did I really "save" the puppies?

Am beginning to think that the puppies would hate me for saving them from committing suicide


  1. Aww... yup, you are definitely a hero!

    MAybe you can try contacting PAWS, another animal shelter like SPCA located near the old subang aiport. Maybe they will be more willing to take the pups in.

    Are you sure the neighbours do not want the puppies? If you know they wont mind, I can help you to ask around to see if anyone wants to adopt the puppies - but hafta make sure your neighbour give consent for us to take them away. Try get pics of each pup individually n post it - to let ppl see the pups clearly to entice them to adopt - puppies are always earlier to convince to ppl to take in.

    I'll let you know if I can get ppl to adopt ya, but you mus confirm that your neighbour willing to give them away. Let me know ya!
