Personality: Shinny was another case of abandonment after we completed our sterilization project on Pulau Ubin. He was found with a many flies swarming around his ear, and on closer look, it was a maggot wound! We quickly evacuated him and brought him to the vet. It must have been very painful, as he didn’t allow the vets to examine him closely, and he had to be sedated in order to be treated. It took about a week for Shinny to feel better, and he slowly warmed up to the staff at the clinic. Because of his big floppy ears, he is prone to getting ear infections. He still requires daily ear cleaning, and would probably need regular cleaning even after recovery to help ensure his ears are clean and healthy. He is also undergoing heartworm treatment currently. Shinny is a cute boy who is very affectionate once he knows you, and would whine longingly when he sees people he likes!
