Little Mandy for Adoption!

We had friends and supporters writing in to us asking how is the little girl ( Well, our first response was: “Never been better!” Mandy is a fun-loving and playful little imp, pretty active for her age but very loving and attention seeking. On the greedy side but excellent temperament and her confidence is slowly building up!

As scheduled, we picked Mandy up from Madam C last week. We will say Madam C and family does love her but circumstances do not allow them to provide a suitable environment for Mandy. This is sadly their current living condition and the voluntary group “A Packet of Rice” who appealed for help to rehome Mandy is in the midst of gathering help to clean up their flat and let them move on with life thereafter. Madam C unwillingly bid farewell to Mandy as we took her away, and we gave Madam C our word that we will find a good home for Mandy.

We brought Mandy to a volunteer’s place to give her a groom and bath. She is a curious little girl and extremely responsive to her name. Her eyes are bright and soulful, and her little tail wags easily once excited. She is however, a thin and messy frame for now. She was no doubt scared but very co-operative throughout the entire grooming process.

Mandy went to the vet a few days later and we did a medical checkup on her. She is not likely to be spayed but will need to put on some weight before undergoing the operation. The soft lump on her belly is an umbilical hernia which can easily be fixed during spaying. Her blood work is generally fine - though her kidney level is slightly above average but the vet advised there is no need to be alarmed for now. The vet prescribed some medication for her skin condition and Mandy is to return for a review in a month’s time.

We need a permanent home for 8 year old Mandy now as this petite shih tzu is just being fostered at the moment. No doubt her fosterer loves her (from all the stuff she brought back for Mandy from the Pet Expo) but Mandy deserves a family of her own after all. She is certainly good with kids as Madam C has young children herself, and will certainly make a lovely addition to any family. To find out more about Mandy and adopting her, please email Thank you!
