The eight puppies who were abandoned in a Deeside litter bin are turning into little explorers. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The puppies – three male and five female – were found in a black rubbish bin by children on 6 March on Chester Road East, Queensferry, Deeside just before 4pm. The pups were so young some of them had their umbilical cords still attached. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Eight puppies were dumped in a bin on Chester Road East, Queensferry, The pups were so young some of them had their umbilical cords still attached.

But despite a traumatic start to life – thanks to care by RSPCA fosterers – the puppies are growing up fast and the charity is now looking to find homes for them. They are now six weeks old and are a Mastiff cross breed. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

[pullquote cite=”RSPCA fosterer Emma Nesfield” type=”right”]“I can’t believe how quickly they are developing, their eyes opened a few weeks ago, then suddenly they were walking, going to toilet on their own and now they wag their tails and play with each other!”[/pullquote] ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

RSPCA animal care assistant at Bryn-y-Maen Animal Centre Abbie Griffith, along with RSPCA fosterer Emma Nesfield, are caring for the demanding litter. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

They have been named Brenda, Angelica, Roxy, Johnny, Pinker, Willow, Snippet and Spud. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“They have started the weaning process and are growing and changing so much as the weeks go on. They are now little explorers.” – Emma said. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Abbie added: ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“They’ve all got their own characters and one is so cuddly it’s unreal! ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“Another one is quite the monkey running off with bits of tissue or toys that my dogs have ripped up. They’re going to make fantastic dogs! ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“We’re still unsure of the breed so people need to be prepared that they might grow to be very large dogs. They have very mastiff like heads but they’re a bit too small for mastiff puppies.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

If you think you can offer any of these puppies a forever home please get in touch with the Bryn-y-Maen Animal Centre on 0300 123 0745 or at brynymaen@rspca.org.uk. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Although the puppies won’t be able to go to any new homes straight away – they can be reserved. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The centre is open between 11am and 4pm everyday, except Wednesdays.  ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
