Pets, vets and rescues / Abandoned puppy
« Last post by La Foschia on September 06, 2019, 04:37:46 PM »
We have just come back to our holiday house and found that a stray puppy is hanging around. We have asked in the village and it would appear to be abandoned/ stray. We live in Manzitti, a small hamlet near Atri.
Brown and black, about 3 or 4 months old, very cute but thin and very wary of humans so won?t allow itself to be caught or us to get close enough to check out its sex.
We are feeding it and giving it water so we hope we will gradually get it into a storeroom for capture.
Is anyone in need of a puppy ? Or knows of someone who is ?
We have contacted the local commune and a dog rescue place who may be able to help but it is only a maybe.
Please message me if you can help.

Roy and Christine recently looked after my dog for 3 weeks.  I would highly recommend them, and in fact, I think my dog sulked for 3 days after he came he had had such a good time!  They took great care of him and charge very reasonable rates.

Same here, late and fewer than previous years. Mind you everything?s a bit weird this year. I?ve never seen so many swallows, so there must be plenty of insects.

There doesn't seem to be as many fireflies around our house this year compared to previous years.

We don't usually see them until the very end of May, but the weather this year made them even later, but numbers are certainly down.

We got back to the house late on Friday after a stint away & we were treated to a beautiful display from our resident fireflies. Absolutely magical.

Having the grass waist-high probably helped!
Pets, vets and rescues / Vets and chips

I doubt this will affect anyone here but just in case....
I have been told that vets will no longer be able to write prescriptions or treat dogs which are not chipped. I believe the intention is to encourage dog owners to get their pets chipped and registered, however I think responsible owners already do that and all that will happen is that irresponsible owners with unchipped dogs won?t get them treated when they need to be.

Pets, vets and rescues / Black Labrador needs new home
« Last post by Murphy123 on May 19, 2019, 08:21:10 PM »
I am currently feeding a lovely black Labrador who through no fault of his own is now an unwanted burden for his Italian owner. She can no longer live at her house due to an accident which has left her with very limited mobility and now lives with her daughter. Rudy is a nice natured dog who spends all his days on a chain and only gets let off when I go up and feed him every day. He is  about six years old, is used to living outside and is ok with cats and female dogs.If anyone could give him a home or knows of someone who may have him .... please pm me... he is near Penne and I would be very happy to show you this beautiful dog.... I cannot take another dog as I already have two large dogs.... thank you..
