Dylan – or Badger, as he was then known, grew into a confident and strong pup, just like his siblings Bowser, Stanley, Billy, Gus, Whittaker, Blaze and Winter.
Hannah Wiltshire, Centre Manager at our Burford site in Oxfordshire, who cared for Dylan and Bowser, said: “They came to us at four days old and we had to do a lot of feeding.
“There was also lots of keeping them warm and toileting them in between.
“Once they started to get bigger, they really kept us on our toes as we have to keep an eye on their exploring and play!
“We had a rota to spread out the fostering across the team, as it was a 24-hour commitment.”
Without a mum to guide them, our teams also made sure each of the puppies got the socialisation that is so vital to helping young dogs on their way to becoming happy, healthy and well behaved pets.
It was a commitment that paid off, and when the New Year was rung in, our teams got to work in finding the siblings the loving homes they deserved.
