Bonnie first came into the Nowzad shelter in summer of 2011. The police at a local orphanage had been taking care of her after she had her litter of pups and brought her in because 2 months after giving birth she was still bleeding heavily and they were worried. We quickly diagnosed that Bonnie was suffering from a disease called TVT (transmissible venereal tumours) and that we would be able to treat her and we quickly started treatment. After 6 weeks of treatment Bonnie’s tumours disappeared and she had made herself a firm favourite at the Nowzad clinic so we decided we would hold onto her and find her a home.
Jack came into the shelter as a pup with his mother, Momma dog early in 2011. Momma Dog, and Jacks siblings were all quickly found homes in America but Jack remained. He was quiet and painfully shy so he lived with Louise and some of the other dogs at the office and soon we felt he was ready to be rehomed.
Bonnie and Jack had bonded so we set about looking for a home where they would be together and a kind couple in the UK offered up their home and their hearts to this lovely pair.
In January 2013 Bonnie and Jack boarded a flight for London and got to meet their new mom and dad for the first time. They settled into their new life very quickly and are having a great life with all the things they could possibly want but they keep mom and dad on their toes with their constant play and opening cupboards and draws and emptying them!
