Throwback Thursday - Tracey Findlay & Cole
The call came in from one of our people. She had been alerted that there was a bloke at a local central coast shopping centre with a trolley full of underage puppies. Trying to sell them for a quick buck, maybe drug money but who knows and frankly who cares ..... underage, dehydrated pups sitting in a metal trolley for hours on end waiting for the highest bidder is a low act in anyone's books.
Somehow, with amazing detective skills our person managed to track down this idiots phone number ... :0 ... and called him. This was the start of some quicksilver negotiating and a few hair raising moments. Long story short - because the details need to be kept private - we secured the babies. Despite our very best attempts we were forbidden to desex the mum. This is something we insist on. Desex, vaccinate & dental, If needed, for the mum if we are to take puppies into care. In this case we could not and it still rankles us, but these pups needed help. Anyway, these adorable shopping trolly bubs were eventually safe after a lot of harassing, cajoling and negotiating. To recollect their beginnings they were gifted "shopping" names ie Cole(s), Aldo (i), Iggi (IGA) Macy (Macey’s)
