River is a fabulous 7 month old crossbreed...... and although she is a stray, we do know her parentage - but you'll NEVER guess! Answer at the bottom of the page, but don't peep yet....
Although still a pup, River is majestically statuesque - even when showing off her bestest sit. She's going to need a particularly long sofa!
See what we mean?
And River has all the puppy exuberance you would expect! This girl is all about the fun!
But it's important not to overdo it eh River?
Playbowing - C'mon Aunty Suze! Let's have some more zoomies!
Soooooo, apparently River's mamma is a very petite Akita lady, and her pappa is..... a dobermann! Did ya guess right?
If River's owners don't come forward for her, and it seems very unlikely that they are going to, she will be available for rehoming from 8th August. She is lively, energetic, and really hasn't had the time and attention she needs, so it's back to basics for her training needs! But she is soooooooooo worth it!
For more information on River, please contact NEWPORT CITY DOGS HOME.
TEL 01633 290 902 between 11am - 1pm or 2pm - 4pm, or pop in for a visit! No appointment needed.
Rehoming fees are from £100 - £200 depending on the age/breed of the dog, and include 1st vaccination, flea & worm treatment, and microchip. It is a condition of the rehoming contract that all dogs are neutered/spayed. Subsidised vouchers are available at £35, this is in addition to the rehoming fee.
All applicants will be homechecked prior to approval.
River.. our beloved, goofy, fun-loving, affectionate baby, lost her courageous battle last week. Since she was diagnosed with parvovirus on Monday, she has received every ounce of care, every whispered prayer, that any dog could have asked for. The vets tried everything they possibly could to keep her going while she fought valliantly against this cruel virus. She was kept hydrated with drips, medicated with antibiotics and probiotics, we tried feeding her through a nasal drip, but she simply couldn't keep anything down. She was growing weaker by the hour. The plan was to surgically insert a feeding tube into her tummy on Thursday... but when the vets called the staff at the Home that morning, the news was that River was too poorly to even consider putting her under anasethetic. The staff from the Home rushed to be by her side at the vets. She tried to raise her head when Carole whispered her name, but they knew she was dying, and without words, they nodded to the vets, it was time to release her from her pain. River died on Thursday morning, brave and beautiful, and so very loved. Rest easy sweetheart.
