11 AUGUST 2019
Today 11 Aug 2019 marks a very special day for us. We have successfully launched a rescue Mission for Gao Bu and Girly, two of our dogs which we have been feeding.
We have deep worries and concern as Latte, the maggot wound dog which we rescued 4 months ago has heart worm and we need to treat him urgently. We suspect that Gao Bu and Girly living in the same area, may also have heart worm. Lately the dogs appetite are not good and they became skinner.
We need to rescue them and find out the truth. We need to help them. They are so helpless, so vulnerable, so pitiful. They do not ask for more, they only need food and we have been taking care of them. Our love, dedication and concern for these strays grows over the past 12 months.
Purely Adoptions team members Adeline and Jeannie took the initiative to trap these 2 vulnerable dogs. We need to help them. They started to fence up the area of feeding. And while they are feeding on the delicious food prepared for them, these 2 ladies swiftly enclose the netting.
Patience and dedication is the key ingredient towards trapping these 2 strays. The many months animal communication, dehydrated treats and touch, is also important to harness the trust between humans and dogs.
While they have been feeding the dogs, another team members Raymond, Yong Tat and Jun Jie stand by with the carriers and carry them inside. The moment of happiness takes place when we receives a sms that the dogs are surrounded. We have a go ahead to go uphill.
With great effort and hard work we managed to get both Gao Bu and Girly into the carriers. The next challenge is to carry them downhill and give them a shower. So with great happiness and with tiring bodies, we carry these 2 darlings for a critical vet check. We need to determine whether they have heart worms as it is life threatening to them.
Along the journey, Gao Bu becomes very anxious and freaks out. She just “lao sai” green colour liquid stools. Poor gal she must be so frighten. Both Adeline and Jeannie have to endure the smell for the entire journey. Their love towards helping these 2 dogs is remarkable and commendable.
At the kennel, it’s takes 3 ladies to shower the dogs. One will be holding a towel to lift the hips, another with the water hose and third one to lather the dogs. They have never been showered for years and it’s an amazing feeling to be clean and smelling fresh.
Both dogs enjoys the shower and we witness them smiling at us. It’s as though they are saying “Thank you” to us. We feel so enlighten, so overjoy as we know that we will be changing the destiny of these 2 dogs. We are determine to rehab and rehome them to be family pets.
We gain great satisfaction and joy when we rescue, rehab and rehome each dog and cat. One stray rescued from the street is one pet rehome to a good family.

Our volunteers Irene, Adeline and Jeannie brought Gaobu (the black and white) and Girly to see the vet today. Gaobu which means "Mother Dog" and Girly (apparently her daughter) were from the same forest that Latte was rescued. Both dogs have very nice nature and very trusting to people. We believe they have good chance to be home pet. We did the relevant tests to understand more of their health conditions.
Gaobu tested Heartworm and Tick Fever negative. CBC and Liver and Kidney are normal which is great news.
However for Girly, she was tested Heartworm Positive, no tick fever and blood test show CBC and Liver/Kidney normal. We immediately put Girly on Heartworm Treatment.
Both girls look relaxed and happy during this vet visit. Glad that we rescued these two girls from the forest. They deserve a good life. We can't imagine how they survive in the wild for the past few years when it rains and when there's no food. It's time they have a better life. We will keep everyone posted on their progress.

Glad to see Gaobu's happy face. She was rescued from the same forest as Latte and Girly. These 3 furries grew up in the forest and have to battle for survivor for past years. We brought all of them down and put them in home environment. They adapt well and have been smiling since being rescued. They yearned to have a home like our home pet.
We loves Gaobu's smiling face. It's the same smile we saw on Latte when he went to his foster's house. It's the smile that pushes us to do more for the strays and homeless animals out there.
We believe Gaobu has settled well and she is ready for adoption. She is 10yr old and HDB approved. If you like to adopt her, pls contact @purelywoof or 90709585 (PurelyWoof). Pls share the post. Thank you.

Its heartwarming to see Gaobu walk well on leash.
This is her 3rd attempt walking on leash after living the forest for past 10 years. PurelyWoof Irene is surprised by her progress when she walked her this afternoon. We are amazed too as it has only been 9 days since she was trapped. As what we can remember (when we went up to feed the forest dogs), Gaobu likes to run around and we have been thinking it will be hard to leash her, let alone rehome her. Apart from that, she does not like to be restrained
Gaobu obviously wants to be a family pet and she is trying her best to be as obedient as possible. Our fosterer Sharon is trying to toliet train her and letting her get use to humans and traffic.
If you like to give Gaobu a 2nd chance, pls contact @purelywoof Irene at 90709585. Pls share the post so Gaobu can find her forever home soon. Thank you.

Forgot to mention in yesterday post on Gaobu that she's addicted to TV too😄. Considering she has been living in the wild for the past 10 years with minimum human interaction, she can sit quietly at one corner when the TV is on. Its as though she is concentrating on the moving pictures. Another giant step to becoming home pet 👏👏😊 If you like to give Gaobu a 2nd chance, pls contact @purelywoof Irene at 90709585. Pls share the post so Gaobu can find her forever home soon. Thank you.

Good to see Girly, one of the 2 girls we rescued from the forest learning to walk on leash. Infact, she is doing well considering she, similarly as her mother Gaobu has been living in the forest for their whole life. All strays animals deserves a home isn't it? It's touching to see the 2 girls, Girly and Gaobu trying their best to be home pet. They settled down pretty well, probably they love the attention human are showering them, giving them regular meals rather then them fighting for food with other dogs. They probably feel the warmth at home, knowing there's a bed and blanket to take cover when it rains. We see their determination and its our responsibility to find a good home for them. Girly is diagnosed with Heartworm and we have started her medical treatment. We will let her recover first before finding her a home.
All strays dogs and cats deserve a home. It's not their choice to be born on the street. We will do what we can to help them. Pls help to share any adoption posts we have, may it be cats or dogs. Every share means a chance for them to find a home. Thank you.
