BooBoo and Wowow were our first two dogs rescued from the island of Pulau Selat Kering. When Booboo first arrived, she was very skinny and timid. After about a week, she started filling in nicely and became friendlier by the day. She is about 2-3 years old. She may look rather intimidating, but she is gentle and very sweet.
Good news - As you can tell from the photos, she is one playful, adorable and goofy dog! She was very thin and covered in mud when she first came in, but after a few good baths and good food, she is now a tubby little dog with a beautiful black coat.
When Cuddly was rescued, she had a trans-venereal tumor. She was in pain, and was very timid. After her check-up at the vet, she was admitted for almost two weeks as she had to undergo surgery to remove the tumor. She was also spayed at the same time. Fully recovered now, she is slowly but surely trusting us more - she seems to be constantly gazing into the distance - perhaps thinking of her terrible ordeal. She is very shy, and very gentle. She really deserves a good home with an understanding and patient family.
Daya tends to be very wary of people, letting out tiny growls whenever one ventures too close for comfort. However, peeping at her from a window - she is relaxed and playful when no one is watching. She has put on a good amount of weight, and her dull coat has turned glossy! She has beautiful brown eyes, and a very sad face. Due to her wariness, we may consider rehoming her at an orchard or farm - where she will be cared for, but will have her own space and not have to be always in be in contact with people.
Flora is a large dog but she was very, very thin when we first rescued her. She was also very upset with the world in general. After several weeks, she has morphed into a beautiful dog, and seems to be much more content with her life. She is about 3-4 years old, and spends most of her day peacefully snoozing under the ample shade.
Karishma has rather large ears, but she looks adorable! Initially, she was very scared of people and sat shaking in a corner of her crate. Recently, she had been placed in an enclosure with several other dogs and seems to have built up her self-confidence - she runs around visitors, letting out little barks gleefully.
Karuna was so friendly compared to the others, that the rescue team actually caught her by hand as she cautiously walked to them looking for some food. She is very manja, very playful and gets attached to people easily. She loves to roll around on the floor, getting her belly rubbed and tickled. She may very well have been someones pet who had been caught and abandoned on the island. She has since been adopted by a very kind lady, who fell in love with her the moment she laid eyes on her pretty face.
Liberty has the most beautiful, soulful eyes. Add her droppy ears to the mix, and you have a very sad-looking dog! However, over the last few weeks she has learned that she can trust us, and she is now more confident and at ease. She now walks around sniffing out new visitors and keeping an eye on her friends! She also has an excellent appetite, and is now rather chubby!
Meta is a famous face - photos of her eating the carcass of another dog on the island were splashed across websites, as well as the local and international dailies. When animal communicator Irene visited the dogs, she said that Meta felt a deep sense of guilt and was very sorry for what she had done. Irene told her that she was forgiven, as any other dog would have done the same under those cirsumstances - having had no food for weeks. She is a grand-looking, large dog with a haunting gaze. She really needs a home where she will be loved and cared for unconditionally, as she really has had enough of misery and sadness in her life.
Mr Miracle @ Romeo was rescued from under a walkway in Pulau Ketam. He was injured, and sat helplessly in the water as the tide rose - swaying with the current. Animal Inspector Murugan rescued him and took him to the vet to be treated. He spent a week at the vet, and came back looking great! His fur is slowly growing back, and he is just a darling - an excellent watchdog, but also a big soppy puppy when it comes to his favourite person Roli, our Swiss volunteer.
Mudita is a very shy dog, but we could easily approach her and stroke her. She has a pretty fluffy tail, and those gorgeous brown eyes that tell her sad tale. She had put on a lot of weight since arriving at our centre, and her coat looks great now!
Piccola and Piccolo are close to each other, and they may be related judging from their looks and close bond. Piccola used to be very stand-offish and silent, but she now runs around with Piccolo in their enclosure, circling visitors and barking happily. She also loves her food very, very much!
Piccolo is a cutie-pie. About 2 years old, she was initially very unfriendly. Today, she will approach you and sniff you out, running around playfully in little circles as if teasing you! She is a medium-sized dog, with a unique coat. She always has a cheeky look on her face!
Ginger is a small-sized mongrel, with a wonderful temperament! Along with Marco, Lucky, Luna and Molly she was part of the fourth batch of rescued dogs from Pulau Selat Kering. Sociable, gentle and tail-waggingly happy - she would make a great companion for a family with children.
Bright, energetic and very friendly! This 6 month old pup loves to run and play, and will run up to visitors, wagging her tail wildly and grinning widely! She is adorable, do visit her and make her day!
Luna, Luna, Luna. She is pretty. She is smart. She is very, very loving. A little shy at first, she soon warms up. She never wastes a drop of food, as she is grateful for everything she now has. She would make an excellent companion!
Macho Marco is shy, but curious about people too. He has a brown-black sleek coat, and a winning smile. He has recovered from a big scald wound on his back, and is slowly mingling with the other dogs.
With her bright eyes, and gentle behaviour - Molly is a wonderful little girl. A small sized dog like Ginger, she was covered in wounds and bruises when she first came in. Now she is healing well, and eating well. It takes some time to get to know her, but its worth the wait!
Annie and Tinkerbelle are good friends! Annie is still very timid, and tried to avoid eye contact wherever possible. However, she is carefree and curious when left on her own to roam and play.
Buddy would make a good buddy for a family, once he settles down and learns that some people really can be trusted. He has a bad scald mark on his side, and seems like a dog that has been mistreated on more than one occasion. If you have the patience and experience to help him come out of his shell, please come and be his friend.
Suave, sleek and sweet - this is Rocky. Like Buddy, he will take some time to trust again - but he is getting a lot of love and attention from our volunteers! He is a gorgeous dog, and we hope he will learn to love again.
Naughty. Bossy. Adorable. Three words to describe little Tinkerbelle, with her mischievous face and twinkling eyes. She has a very unique howl-bark, which she uses to scold you if she doesn't like what you're doing!
Kourtney and Khloe are sisters, who were born at an orang asli settlement in the islands. Their owners could not care for them anymore, and passed them to us in hopes that they would find better homes in the city. Both are bounding, bouncing, brilliant pups - they can wrestle, run, play non-stop for hours - and then they will pass out and sleep peacefully for the next few hours !
Bobby is one of the neutered strays from Pulau Ketam which we brought back to rehome. He is a bundle of energy, and he LOVES people - though he doesn't like other dogs. He is very loving, and all he wants is a good cuddle. He is shown here in the loving arms of Roli, whom he loves tremendously!
Gentle, pretty and fairy-like - Cotton is a very lovely lady. She is 3-4 years old, and has a brilliant smile that will take your breath away - as demonstrated in the photo above! She loves a rub-down, and wags her stumpy tail furiously when she is happy.
Like the supermodel, our Heidi is classy! She is gentle and quiet, but can't help wagging her tail like a little pup when you talk to her. She is one cool chick, who deserves a wonderful forever home.
Terry is an athletic dog, who loves to run and scamper about with the other dogs here! Loving, friendly and definitely manja! Terry would do well in a home with other dogs to play with.
