Poor Marvin was picked up on 18 July 2021, a very weak 3-month old puppy with multiple bites wounds on his back.
Despite this, he has a very sweet nature, and loves following Doc Milton around the Sanctuary!
On 18 July 2021, we appealed for a foster for Marvin, as the Sanctuary Quarantine was full. Sadly one did not come forward in time, but we simply couldn't wait any longer.
We bought him into a Quarantine cage so we could treat some serious bit wounds. Our concern was that he might also have Rabies, which seems to be on the rise in Negros Oriental, so he had to remain isolated under observation for 14 days. Usually in puppies signs will become visible within a week. (find out more about Rabies here.)
He is eating well which is a good sign. He is the sweetest happiest little soul. Doc Milton takes him for a walk and he just follows him wherever he goes. He also knows his name now! Marvin is super friendly and active and now hates being in his cage. He has 6 more days left in isolation as we have to observe for rabies, given that he had 6 serious bite wounds when we rescued him.
He's still currently on antibiotics
His skin is starting to improve and his hair is starting to grow back.
Marvin Finds a Home!
We are so happy to announce that the last of the 5 puppies found in a bucket, Marvin, has been adopted by Raymart, one of our Sanctuary Vet Assistants, so we know he will have a good life.
Monty, Mona, Miggy and Minky had already embarked on their new adventures, after being rescued only a few short weeks ago, covered with ticks and fleas.
Finally Joey is on his way to a new home with Miggy as playmate. Joey was a mange-ridden, undernourished hit-and-run victim in late July, and has truly been transformed into a happy, loving boy. Read his story on his profile page here. Good luck to all four of them!
We're so happy that Marvin was adopted today! He was collected by Jennielynn and family, who had previously adopted Gabby, now called Xaduu. You can find out more about Marvin on his profile page here.
It's clear that the love and care lavished on little Marvin during his time being fostered by Emma and Sam worked its magic, and we wish little Marvin all the best with his new family.
Fostering is so valuable to us, since we are always at, or over capacity with our current rescues. If you think you could be a temporary foster carer for our rescues, supported by us, please look for more information here.
A New BFF for Shaun
Puppy Marvin is such an inquisitive bundle of energy, we decided to match him up with Shaun, a similar force of nature. They took to each other straight away, and we give them time together each day. We have to be careful as Marvin is still so tiny, even Shaun seems gigantic in comparison! Find out more about Shaun and Marvin on their Profile Pages.
