Aspin pups adopted!

We have some great news! The Aspin pups we rescued from Iloilo City were finally adopted! After being under the care of Greenwoods Pet Clinic for more than a month, they were fetched by their respective new families last Saturday. The search for qualified individuals to make the adoption had been nerve racking; at some point I had entertained the daunting possibility of keeping all seven(!) puppies for good. Yet, after our prayers were answered and the day came for these pups to leave us for their new homes, the feeling was just a bit disconcerting...

The Animal Doctor tried to console me by agreeing that we keep the runt of the litter, a female puppy I affectionately called Trudis.

The picture says it all:
These two puppies were adopted by an animal loving couple from Rosario, Pasig City, who found our blog and our post about the seven Aspin puppies after Sherwin mentioned it in his blog at www.MeFindHome.Org.

Many months back, we joined Sherwin's blog brigade by providing links with each other to create a word of blog about the Shelter animals featured in his site. With more people reading about them, these homeless animals would have better chances at adoption. Little did I know that I would soon find myself a litter of rescued pups and that MeFindHome would in fact be instrumental in their adoption.

This pup was photographed in his new home by his new Mommy, Valerie who learned about the Aspin pups through the ads we posted at Greenwoods Executive Village. We were convinced she was the one because she never gave up on us even when we had already chosen someone we thought was more qualified. She called and visited Greenwoods Pet Clinic several times and each time, we got to know the real person. To us, her persistence was a good indication of her willingness and commitment to care for a mongrel pup.

Three puppies left. Two went to these ladies from a nearby subdivision. Gilda has been taking care of Aspins for a long time, preferring them over purebreds because of their resilience to diseases. Just like the rest, Gilda's persistence in going back to our Clinic to inquire about the pups and to comply with our requirements somehow assured us that the pups will go to a good home.

While we were not able to take a picture of the last puppy, we are assured of her good life too. She was adopted by no less than Jaya's Mom, a regular client of ours who has a passion for rescuing stray animals and from time to time, volunteers at a local dog pound.

Well, we did not really say good bye to the puppies. We will still see them in the coming months for their spay or neuter operation as expressly provided in our adoption contract. Just like with Moy-Moy and Pussy, resident pets of Greenwoods Pet Clinic, neutering and spaying is our only way of ensuring that the tragic past of these rescued animals will never be repeated in their offsprings.

Again we wish to thank Joy and Al, Valerie, Gilda, and Karina. By opening your homes and your hearts to these once homeless puppies, you have forever changed their lives. You are truly God sent!

And of course, we cannot forget Sherwin of MeFindHome.Org. Thank you very much for that one paragraph you wrote which led Joy and Al to our blog. A link was all it took to give two pups a shot at the good life.


  1. Moymoy, this is just amazing; a story to tell your grandpuppies. Your mommy Lilly almost made me cry. Eh boys don't cry di ba? :)

  2. Sherwin, the Animal Doctor told me I can't make puppies anymore??? Never mind what that means. I have to agree with you that the puppies' adoption was an amazing thing that happened here lately. For one,I'm down to just one puppy begging for play! - Moy

  3. Yehey good news nga!! I'll add you to my link list ha? mahirap ipa-adopt ang mga animals pag matagal na sa iyo 'no? congrats sa pag papa-adopt!


  4. Hey Moymoy,

    Al and I are happy with our new babies, Ashley (the brown pup) and Jackie (the white pup). And the pups are happy as well with their new playmate Huppie who has also adopted them as if they were her own pups. You see, Huppie never had pups before even if she has been with us for 6 years now. Maternal instincts, probably....

    Thanks to the Animal Doctor and to your Mommy Lilly who have given the pups a better chance in life.

    We will send you pics of Ashley and Jackie soon.

    Regards to all. - Joy

  5. Dave-- thanks for the comment. we left a message in your chatbox :)

    Joy and Al--- We're so glad that the pups are doing well with their new family, that not only humans but resident dog huppie welcomed them ( with open paws i suppose hehe). i'm in iloilo right now, and i saw some stray dogs again in the street. they hide under parked vehicles to escape the sweltering heat, with no water, no food. ashley and jackie could have been among them. you've changed these dogs' destiny forever, thats all i need to think to ease the sadness of seeing so many unwanted dogs still out there waiting for someone to take them home. God bless- Lilli

  6. Hehe. Honga no. Sorry Moymoy I forgot that one tiny detail. Never mind if you can no longer make puppies--- you can always adopt, right??? :)


We love to hear from you!
