About me

The following dogs are all being cared for at an “interim” shelter in Port Elizabeth. They have all either been confiscated, picked up as strays, abandoned or born in the shelter. We need to get them out of the kennels into loving homes AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. FEMALE MIN. PIN. Abandoned outside the “shelter” last Tuesday morning (5 October 2010). She was VERY SCARED. She is tiny and still very young. She is suffering from a little bit of mange, but has already started treatment for this. Could you offer this tiny girl a space in your heart? MOMMY & PUP This mommy and her male puppy are pining for a loving home. It took a lot of encouragement for Mommy to come out from where she was hiding in the kennel at the back, but once she experienced a bit of love and attention, she could not get enough. Puppy is more adventurous and curious. He just had to come look at what was happening outside. It broke my heart to leave them there. PLEASE OPEN YOUR HEART & HOME TO THEM. FEMALE PUPPY This playful girl is full of energy and absolutely loves her belly rubs. She is about 4 months old and was born at the “shelter”. All her siblings have found homes already. Please help her find her loving family too. Should you need any further information on any of these beautiful dogs OR would like to meet any of them, kindly contact Rose on 041 – 506 1743 (office hours) OR 072 286 2908. Alternatively, you can e-mail me on: nicky.daniels@damelin.co.za Re-location to another town/city will be considered. Spaying / neutering & vaccinations will be arranged upon adoption. Please help us help them!

PET TIP
STEALING
When your dog steals something do you chase after him trying to get it back?  
Don’t play this game of chase anymore.  You are reinforcing an unwanted behaviour. The more attention you give him for stealing something, the more he’ll steal.    
As long as it’s not dangerous ignore him when he steals something, he’ll stop pretty soon if there is no reinforcement involved. Write the incident off to your mistake, as you are the one who left it lying around in the first place. Remember prevention is better than cure.
Make sure he can’t get to items, which are off-limits. Keep tables and counters completely free of food and other fun chewables; keep the laundry out of your dogs reach for several months until he no longer looks there for fun.  He is stealing this stuff to entertain himself so rather have plenty of yummy chew treats to keep him busy and make sure he is getting exercise and his mind is being stimulated with fun games. If your dog has stolen something you need to take back. Don’t just take the article from him this will only teach him that when he has his fun toy and you come towards him, his fun is going to stop and he will begin to hide with his stolen items. Instead offer him something much better a great big yummy chew toy, not only will he drop the stolen item for you to get back but he will be occupied with this new yummy treat and he will completely forget his stolen item. This will also make him happy when he sees you approaching because good things come from you.
