Nubbe, Nilo and Nacho were brought to the killing station... something that happens here every week. So often that nobody is surprised at it anymore.The mama of these little ones is a brown Perro de Agua, barely 8 months old herself. Her owner took her to her vet to have her young dog sterilized, but the vet thought that that would be like a rape of nature... and talked her out of it. What you would expect id indeed happen. Her beautiful Perro de Agua got pregnant, unwanted, and got no less than 14 puppies..
Her owner was being driven crazy with this big family and so they were all given away to everybody as gifts, only these 3 remained out of the 14. And they were brought to the killing station! Can you imagine that a vet who works and lives here in Spain, and knows what happens to them in a killing station, would give such advice?
The whole family was given away, just to get rid of the problem. The last 3, they were lucky and they are safe now, in our hands.
Update: Nubbe and Nacho are in pre-reservation, so hopefully they will soon be on their way home.
Little Nilo is still waiting. Don't let him be left behind. Will you make sure that he too has a warm basket, like his siblings.
