A Mopsy Profile

Today is Mopsy’s day (Which he will be pleased about because he looooves attention)


Mopsy’s our boy puppy up for adoption. He was rescued from DBKL and is really REALLY anxious to find a new home with new owners to love.  He’ll be ready for adoption in about a week or so – needs a bit of time to fatten up and get his land legs, as he’s been cooped up in small spaces ever since he was born his legs are not so strong, and he tires easily as he’s just got over being sick.

He’s a little manja pup and will whine to be picked up and loved (I’m pretty sure the whining problem will be fixed once he has enough attention).   He can be noisy (i.e. he is a little barker) but this can be rectified early, as he will stop barking / whining as soon as you give him a warning whack. This is so unlike some dogs (when Coco was a puppy she would whine for an hour before giving up, Guruguru, if bored, will do a ‘pitiful’ bark for hours on end – even if you discipline him it only lasts for about 2 minutes before he’ll start up again).

He’s very very cute, but has probably been bullied for most of his life (suspect he was a runt) and his favorite thing to do is find a dark corner to chill out.  He’ll still come (most of the time) when you call, but after too much stimulation (like 15 minutes of a free run in the garden) he’ll quickly make his way back to his enclosure for some quiet time.

And yes, he always has that ‘pity me i’m cute’ look on his face


See the little bare patch under his little stubby tail (he loves wagging his tail and the stump is just too cute for words as it goes back and forth)?  He had an altercation at the DBKL compound, probably caused by overcrowding, – no worries, the fur is growing back already and it will be invisible soon.
