Meet Holly's Pups: Brutus and Ellie

This mum and bubs were rescued from a country pound and sadly the babies have now all come down with Parvo. This is often a fatal disease in young pups and all 5 are now fighting for their lives at our vet clinic on drips.

Update 21/10/08: Sadly the smallest little puppy didn't make it. The other 4 are still fighting but 3 of them are doing a bit better today so we are hopeful they will pull through

Update 23/10/08: 3 of the puppies are now well enough to go home, unfortunately puppy number 4 is still critical at the vets.

Update 25/10/08: All 4 puppies are now at home with their foster carer and although they still have a tough few days ahead, they are expected to make a full recovery

Update 27/10/08: Sadly the 4th little girl took a turn for the worse today and didn't make it. The remaining 3 are doing well.

Update 15/11/08: All the other 3 puppies are doing well and will go to their new homes at the end of November. We are still seeking sponsorship to cover their large vet bill.
