The only survivor of 10 puppies abandoned illegally close to the Sanctuary in a number of sacks, Ferdi was taken home by Ed and Sharon on Saturday 2 October 2021. Brother Floyd was also about to be adopted, but sadly succumbed to Parvovirus on 22 September 2021. Ferdi battled on in a separate quarantine unit, and was finally cleared for adoption in late September.
It's tragic that of the 10 puppies that came to the Sanctuary in August, just Ferdi made it through, but such young puppies taken from their mothers are always at much greater risk from virulent diseases such as Distemper and Parvo. We hope Ferdi lives a full happy life in tribute to the lives barely begun - Floyd, Fiona, Fonzi, Flynn, Frodo, Tulip, Bonnie, Rose and Vincent.
