|Kimmy smiling and getting her first bath ever|
Hi, my name is Kimmy and I am still looking for my forever home. If you bring me home, I guarantee that I will be the sweetest companion because I simply love humans! I will give you kisses and lots of hugs every day! I am about 5-6 years old, small enough to be HDB approved, they say I am almost the same size as a Cocker Spaniel, and have a giant heart full of love! I love home-cooked food and going for walks in the park. I will need some time adjusting to other dogs but cats, cats are the enemy! Just kidding, I think I can learn to love them too if you teach me how.
|Kimmy is HDB approved! She is very small and 13kg only.|
|Finally getting to chill and enjoy the life she deserves. Kimmy walks very well on leash|
I used to live on a golf course, and can remember feeling the grass on my paws as I ran happily up and down. One day, someone made a complaint because they didn’t like the sight of me and my freedom, so the management caught me and locked me up in a makeshift shed. Overnight, I lost my freedom and my life. I could no longer feel the grass under my paws, neither could I run and play. He told me that other heartless humans who played the silly game with a stick and a ball made him do it, and this was the better alternative to being sent to the place where we go to sleep forever. I looked at him with sad eyes but accepted my fate. I stayed in the small makeshift shed for a year, often going hungry, so hungry, for days because no one remembered to feed me. When they did remember, I only had scraps of bread and this caused me to have food intolerence which resulted in diarrhea and I was in a lot of pain as my anus was sticking out from the constant diarrhea! I was tick infested and my shed was filled with poo for months on end. . . imagine the stench and filth I lived in. I could only sniff the air outside and remember what it was like to be free.
|All we could do was sniff the outside air|
I started losing weight and my fur was so badly matted that I barely resembled a dog. I guess one of the workers must have felt very sorry for me and contacted Hope. Hope volunteers came to visit me and found that I had 3 other friends locked up with me too in separate sheds next door, but they took me first as my condition was the worst. I was sick, coughing, had a rectal prolapse from all that diarrhea, and had severe heartworm. The workers agreed to release me to the volunteers, who rushed me to the vet where I was warded immediately.
|Kimmy had a rectal prolapse - caused by long term diarrhea and a food allergy to bread; the workers fed her plain bread as and when they remembered to feed her.|
|My friends I left behind|

Months have passed and I am all better now. Where most dogs only need one round of heartworm treatment, I needed two rounds of heartworm treatment as our makeshift sheds had tons of mosquitoes and I was bitten mercilessly everyday. A kind lady is sponsoring my stay at a commercial boarding house and I am truly grateful for that. I am happy that I am now out of the horrible makeshift shed. Sadly, three of my friends are still caged there and I had to leave them behind. Hope doesn’t have the capacity to take them out and I can only imagine how cold, wet, sick and hungry they must be as well.
Would you adopt me? I am small, sweet, human friendly, very affectionate and HDB Approved. Take me home so that the volunteers can save the rest of my friends left behind please.
Email the kind humans at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want someone to love you forever!
