ZOWIE: male, 9 months, 13kg, Group B, hind leg amputee Puppies born on the streets of Phuket Island are vulnerable as they are usually surrounded by packs of dogs, congested streets and are often unwelcome by people in the area. Zowie was more fortunate than most as he was brought to one of Soi Dog Foundation mobile clinics when a kind local person noticed that he had been injured. The vets at Soi Dog’s shelter discovered that the little dog had a severely fractured leg which was most likely due to a road traffic accident. Unfortunately, they were unable to save Zowie’s leg and they had to amputate it to improve his quality of life. Zowie has adjusted to life on three legs and is a social little fellow who loves going for walks. He is ready for his next big adventure, please give him the chance to travel to Canada before the ban.
CAT TEST: Dog calmly explores immediate surroundings with ears back, tail up and wagging. Stops to look at cat for 5 seconds, tail stays up and wagging, dog then turns away and continues to look around. When given loose leash dog walks past cat, then stops to sniff cat, head low, tail up and wagging, ears forward. Dog sniffs cat for 20 seconds like this, then moves away. Dog approaches observer, sniffs and then approaches cat and repeats previous interaction for 10 seconds before moving away.
Once the dog arrives in care, they will go into foster care for 1 week so we can get to know their personalities better. After the first week, we will post their adoption biographies and review adoption applications or announce that the foster provider has adopted them.
At that time, if you would like to be considered in the event they are accepting applications, please fill out an adoption application.
