We couldn’t say no when we heard their story. There was no one else to help them.
At just four weeks old, three Labrador puppies had nowhere else to turn when their breeder could not pay for the veterinary treatment they needed.
The youngsters, just babies, were suffering from hernias, and the breeder faced having them euthanised because of the cost.
Fortunately, the trio had been taken to a private veterinary practice that runs a Blue Cross pet care clinic from its premises, and instead of putting the otherwise-healthy puppies to sleep, the breeder agreed to hand them over into the care of our rehoming team.
Hannah Wiltshire, Blue Cross Newport Rehoming Manager, said: “When we heard these three youngsters faced euthanasia if we didn’t step in to help, there was no question.
"Apart from their hernias, they are healthy and happy puppies with so much love to give and will make fantastic family pets.”
