Husky to be Rehomed urgently & Club 4 Paws flea Market!

Samson the 10 year old Husky is in need for a new home. His owner, an avid reader has written to me the following...
Fellow Dog Lovers, I am looking for suitable owners to adopt my Husky. I am shifting from a landed property to a condo in 2 weeks time. My parents aren't really animal lovers and we will have no helper. I would definitely keep my dog if i owned the property but unfortunately this is not the case. I have been scouting around my neighbours and friends over the past few months to find a suitable new owner for my dog but to no avail. My appeal to you guys represents a rather desperate attempt on my part to prevent my dog from going to SPCA. Samson is a purebred Husky I acquired when he was a puppy. Huskys by nature like to run alot. When he was younger, I used to cycle him around the neighbourhood and also to East Coast Park. Nowadays I just walk him around the neighbourhood or drive him to East Coast Park ( he can sit on the front passenger seat ) He is pretty much a laid back dog. In the day he will be sleeping and I will bring him out for his walk in the evening before his dinner.His daily meal consist of rice mixed with pedigree dog food +/- the left overs we eat. He is not a great fan of dry dog food. The only challenge keeping Samson is that he will run out of the house when the main gate opens. That's why most of the time he is leashed at home. I will unleash him at night, or when I confident that the main gate will not open for a long time.He is a gentle dog generally has no fierce reactions to humans/strangers. He is only excited in the presences of cats. A suitable owner for Samson is an animal lover who stays in a landed property and preferably has a helper (maid). Samson has been a stay out dog all his life. He basically just needs shelter from the sun and rain. Once in a while I will let him come into the house, much. If the new owner can let him be a stay in dog that will be awesome. If anyone is keen on inheriting my dog, please call me at 91726487 or email me at
We can work out the details thereafter. You
can also help me out in forwarding this mail to anyone who you think might be interested.
Personally I have not yet met up with Samson before... but i am sure he is a very sweet dog stuck in an undesirable situation. Please help spread the word for a new home he sorely needs.
On a lighter note, Auntie Linny has a FLEA MARKET COMING!!! and its at her Club 4 Paws location!
Free DENTAL! my goodness! That sounds really interesting... something new to chew?
The facility at Club 4 Paws is truly very nice. Its has a nice pool and very fun agility area at the bottom.
But its obvious where we will spend most of our time!

So come on down for the flea market at Club 4 Paws and join in the FUN!!
There is also a children walk on the same day! This would be so great. We would definitely (hopefully) drop by both events! Talking about a busy weekend... and this would be kick started off with appearing at Cafe Del Mar for their first ever Pooch Frenly day on the 31st of July. It is going to be a fun filled weekend alright!

She needs a new Home / Dog shot 6 times

Dog shot 6 times, lives

TOLEDO (Ohio) - A GERMAN shepherd named Sarge is one tough pup.
A dog warden in the state of Ohio says the dog was shot six times and survived. Witnesses tell police in Toledo that the dog's owner and another man took turns shooting the dog with a pistol while he howled in his cage.
Lucas County dog warden Julie Lyle says Sarge was shot in his head, neck and chest. Ms Lyle says the bullets remain lodged inside the dog and that he doesn't need special care other than pain medicine and antibiotics. She says Sarge was up around Tuesday, eating and drinking.
The dog's owner is due in court next week on charges of cruelty to animals and discharging a firearm. He told officers that the dog had bitten him and that he was dangerous.
The other man pleaded no contest on Monday. -- AP
Sometimes the will to live can be so strong that against all odds we will survive.

Trapped dog honks for rescue

MACUNGIE (Pennsylvania) - A VETERINARIAN says a dog trapped in a car on a 90-degree Fahrenheit (32-degree Celsius) day in eastern Pennsylvania honked the horn until he was rescued.

Nancy Soares says the chocolate Labrador was brought to her Macungie Animal Hospital last month after he had been in the car for about an hour.

She says Max's owner had gone shopping and was unloading packages when she returned but forgot that Max was still in the car. She later heard the horn honking and looked outside several times but saw nothing amiss. Finally, she went outside and saw Max sitting in the driver's seat, honking the horn.

Ms Soares says the owner immediately gave Max cold water to drink and wet him down with towels before rushing him to the clinic.

Ms Soares says Max was very warm and panting heavily but had suffered no serious injuries, only heat exhaustion. -- AP

Bruno and I visited Rotty at Mutts and Mittens... She was really great and friendly. Extremely high spirited as well. She really just needs a firm handler to get her trained. I can see she's really quite smart.
All she needs is a place called home. Help spread the word. She really needs all that she can get.

Rotty the 1 year old Female Rotti for Adoption

We met up with Uncle WeiXiang on Sunday to meet up with a Rotti he found wandering at Great World. She was microchipped and he actually managed to find her owner... unfortunately it was a case of abandonment.

Rotty was basically thrown to him to take care of and she had a chronic tick infestation. Luckily her tests all came back great and so far Uncle WeiXiang has paid almost $1000 in both medical and board for her.

She is a very sweet and intelligent girl, and Uncle WeiXiang is really upset he himself couldn't adopt her. He approached Pa about what to do, and Pa suggested that to reduce Boarding costs, Rotty should be moved to Mutts and Mittens. As a stray looking for a great home... that is a good place to go to.

Uncle WeiXiang only knows Pa by reputation, so we went down to the pet shop Rotty was boarded at Clementi Road, to help transport her to her new temp home. Bruno and myself definitely tagged along.

After we picked up Uncle WX and Rotty, it was not 5 mins later that he got an SMS from the shop itself, that "warned" Uncle WX that he is positively sure Pa was a breeder. Apparently, this shopkeeper was SO experienced that he told Uncle WX that Rotty was not a pure bred rotti (she is 100% is) and was in fact a mixed-breed.

Hence this Shopkeeper was wrong in both counts. Irritated.

After which at the pool, someone who didn't know we were Rotties called both Bruno and me FAT. We are just big boned OK?
Having fun at Pet Lover's Vivo.

For interested parties, please contact Wei Xiang (Contact: for Viewing at Mutts and Mittens). It would be very much appreciated if some costs could be shared. All receipts have been kept and ready for inspection at any time.
