Name: Miracle Blessing
Breed: Mixed Breed
Gender: Female
Date of Birth: 23 Feb 2011
Size: Medium
Vaccinated: Yes
Sterilized: Yes
Health: Good
Good with other dogs: Good after warm-up

Pee and poo habits: During daily walks
Understand basic commands: Yes
HDB approved: Yes

Background:

Miracle was caught by AVA on 26 June 2013 together with another dog called “Asphen” from the same pack. They suffered a traumatic capture obviously because Asphen lost one of his claws from his right front paw.

Ever since the redemption, none of them was quite the same dog as before. They were closed up and very afraid of humans. They trembled and purge in diarrheas whenever they see us and Asphen will whine till we are gone. They were always curled up at the corner of the room and will pile on top of one another for protection.

Rehabilitation was a tough, patient and painstaking process. We had to slowly introduce them to eating food from us, letting us bathe them, towel them dry and wearing the leash and harness and etc.

Breakthrough finally came in December 2013. After 2 weeks of daily “coerced” walks coordinated by 6 Mercylighters, Asphen and Miracle somehow realized that we are not the same people as those who captured them. They also realized that there is nothing they should be afraid of outside their room (their comfort zone) and that when we are with them, they can trust and rely on us to guide them.

Today you will see two dogs walk with much more confidence, heads held high and tails wagging to see more of the outside world. Something that was hard to conceive back then. They are ready for loving homes.

Personality:

Miracle is so-called because her existence is indeed a miraculous happening. Before she was captured by AVA, there was once when she was knocked by a car on her hind leg and started limping. Very soon she disappeared for a long 3 weeks. When she reappeared, she was emaciated. We thought she is going to die but she survived and she did well. Even that limping hind leg was completely restored and you will not see any abnormality in her walking at all. Her life is a miracle.

Health: Good
Good with other dogs: Yes
Good with children: Unknown
Pee and poo habits: Walked thrice a day

Background:

Zane was adopted to a family with 2 children in 2019. However he was returned to us on 7 June 2021 when the family could not cope with the 3rd newborn. Zane was left very much to the helper and eventually due to financial constraint as well as lack of time for Zane, they made the decision to give up on him. We are determined to find him a home that is forever and filled with love and commitment, regardless of good and bad times.

Personality:

Zane is very good with children. However, when he was 1.5 yr old the 3rd child came about. Since then, he wasn’t walked regularly and became unsocialized. Accordingly to ex owners, he disliked small white dogs and excitable dogs.

sheeba_main_banner.jpg

Name: Sheeba Blessing
Breed: Mixed Breed
Gender: Female
Date of Birth: 24 September 2016
Size: Medium
Vaccinated: Yes
Sterilized: Yes
Health: Good
Good with other dogs: Good
Good with children: Unknown
Pee and poo habits: Walked thrice a day
Understand basic commands: Yes
HDB approved: Yes

Background:

Sheeba was rescued on 24 Sept 2018 from a huge canal. She has a blind eye and she was very skinny… so skinny that we weren’t certain if she was pregnant or just had a stomach full of worms. However before the veterinarian could be arranged to come to the shelter to do a physical assessment of Sheeba, she started giving birth at 5pm the following day. 11 puppies were born into a safe and clean environment. Otherwise they could either be washed away in the canal or drown in some self-dug pit in the forested area next to the huge canal because it rained cats and dogs the few days following Sheeba’s rescue.

Personality:

Sheeba is a very sweet girl despite having a harsh life as a stray before rescue. The veterinarian suspected that the left eye was already blinded as a puppy when she was plagued with a sickness. Although she survived and overcame the sickness, this left eye is beyond repair – blind but not causing her any pain or discomfort. Even with a limited vision as compared with the average dog, she is a smart dog – probably this is how she survived for 2 years out there. She learned how to pee on fake grass in the shelter on her own; if she does it on newspaper, she will cover it up cleanly. And she is a splendid mummy who fed all 11 puppies well thereby enabling them to grow up healthily.

Izzie was initially afraid of human touch but by the end of the first week with us, all her uncertainty has disappeared. She was fearless, playing with and eating among the adults and she was also freely walking around us. She started to approach and sniff us and before we know it, she is all friendly with us. She will make a good and confident dog in the hands of a good owner.

Amazejr_main_banner_01.jpg

Name: Amaze Jr Blessing
Breed: Mixed Breed
Gender: Male
Date of Birth: 19 August 2018
Size: Medium
Vaccinated: Yes
Sterilized: Yes
Health: Good
Good with other dogs: Yes
Good with children: Yes
Pee and poo habits: Walked thrice a day
Understand basic commands: Yes
HDB approved: Yes

Background:

Amaze Jr was rescued on 19 Aug 2022 on the 3rd attempt. We think that he and another friend of his was deliberately brought to Sungei Tengah area to be dumped. We first saw the 2 of them in July 2022 running back and forth the street recklessly and frantically as if they are lost. Stray dogs doesn’t behave that way if it is their comfort zone. Our fears were confirmed when they appeared again a month later but this time Amaze looked totally emaciated and sick. They did not survive well out there on their own. His friend was nowhere to be found.

Personality:

Amaze Jr definitely is a dog who has been with human contact because he is so chill and comfortable with human touch and hug from Day 1. He also did not freak out at all on his first harness walk. It was as if these experiences aren’t first hand for him. We hope that we can find him a good home. The person who dumped such a gentle and sweet dog has no conscience.
