...for a home.
This is Apple. We posted about her a few weeks back (before she had a name). Dave and I rescued Apple, and her five brothers and sisters, and her mother, from an abandoned house in our neighborhood about six weeks ago. All of Apple's siblings have found new homes (many thanks to the generous adopters!!), but Apple is still waiting. We would love to keep her, but our house is awfully full: 4 cats and 2 dogs (one of them is Apple's mom).
We've received inquiries from good-hearted Malaysians who shy away once they learn Apple is a female. Why? Female dogs, many people think, mean male dogs sniffing around the yard, messy and disruptive 'heats' (when the female is ready to mate), and, possibly, puppies.
Not so. A simple surgical procedure called 'spaying' - very common in the US - prevents all these problems. A spayed female will not go into heat, will not attract male dogs, and cannot have puppies. Spaying requires just 2-3 days of hospitalization. It will not make a dog lazy or fat. It will make her a better pet. Please read this, prepared by the American Humane Society - an organization dedicated to bettering the lives of dogs and cats in the US - to learn why spaying is good for the animal and good for the owner.
Apple is about 10 weeks old. She is quiet and shy with strangers, but playful and extremely loving once she gets to know you. She loves to play with her ball, chew her rubber bone, and cuddle. She would be perfect for anyone looking for a lively, but not too rambunctious, pup.
She is up-to-date on all her vaccinations, and we are offering a 'voucher' to completely cover the costs of spaying when the time comes (about 6 months of age). Please help us find a home for this sweet pup. If you're interested, or if you know someone who knows someone who knows someone who might be .... well, you get the picture.
Thanks. We'll get back to eating Asia tomorrow.
