However, by managing your expectations, and working together with the dog with kindness and a lot of patience, the best and strongest bonds can be built.

Tara

“When we watched the SOSD Facebook video of the appalling condition that the Frenchies were in, our hearts were broken. We already had two Frenchies (Lulu & Coco ) but we knew, as a family, we could make a difference and decided to apply. Tara was initially really hard work. Her medical issues were daunting […]

Yuan Rong and Edmond with Talia

“OMG! There are stray dogs wandering around our estate! They will bark and chase after us! That’s the image of our street dogs, wandering around, hunting for food to survive. Some may be offered food and water but not all are that lucky. Others may die from hunger or illnesses. Have we ever thought about […]
