View Full Version : The Little ruby found at dump

9th November 2006, 08:58 PM
Hi folks, this is the wee Ruby found a couple of weeks ago at the dump at Navan. He arrived today with to us courtsey of Karlin :drivecar:
and will stay until we are sure what exactly will happen with him. It's only been a couple of hours but he's a lovely little dog and so far there have been no issues with my two dogs, Sally a really old springer and Max our 1 1/2 year old Tri. Max did bark at Rory (as he's temporary called) but that settled down very quickly when we took the two younger dogs out for a quick stroll around the neighbourhood. I think Rory is a wee bit tired tho and bless him he probably doesn't know what's going on just yet. :lpy:

Ohhh, he is SOOOO sweet. How anyone could ever do anything so awful to him just astounds me. I just don't understand how people's brains work that way.

But the good thing is he is in a safe and loving home now. Thank you for taking him in. :flwr:

Good for you. I was booked to foster him. And i'm thinking of him a lot because of know of his situation. I'm really glad to know he's okay.

He is so beautiful, well done on taking him in. :flwr:

A big thanks to Brid and Sannie and Lisa who quickly offered help for this guy (hope I am not forgetting anyone!). The lovely man who rescued him turns out to be a safari guide from Zimbabwe who specialises in working with crocodiles! :shock: And now offers accupuncture outside of Trim. Really, really nice guy who has looked after him very well -- sores are healing, putting weight on so he's about the right weight now, and had him groomed so he's nice and clean. He does something with recylcing or site management or something which is why he was out working on the Navan dump site.

He's a nice solid boy; we thought he was neutered but it turns out his goolies are still in there -- undescended! He is a man of many mysteries.

At least he's being cared for now ;)

Oh gosh he is so sweet and such a beautiful dog, I'm so happy to hear that he is safe and in such a great place now! I am so glad that there are so many caring people out there to help dogs like him.

The more I learn about the things people do to dogs, the more disillusioned I become. :(

Thank goodness for everyone who came to Rory's rescue. His life will be better from now on.

Hope everything turns out well :flwr:

Glad Rory is in a safe place...... are we talking about Rory's googlies or the man who found him..... :lol:

He looks amazing! His coat looks really nice and thick and he certainly doesn't look underfed now...

That man at the dump is an angel and I hope he has been given many, many thanks and hugs for taking care of the sweet little boy. What a wonderful man.

It's very sad though because this little guy was someone's much loved pet. Even after such a short time it's very obvious that someone loved him. After all thats happened to him and we really don't know what his cirmcumstances were before he was found trapped in a hole on a dump this little guy is so full of love and affection - and he has tons of it to give.
He walks beautifully and so proud on a lead, he definitely knows what a bed is for (cavaliers of course)! and he's used to cats. He has some basic commands, like sit etc and so far is great around other dogs.
He loves already to sit on the chair beside the window and watch the world going by, a cavalier trait I think as Max does the very same thing.
He's lovely but I have to say I'm very saddened by the fact that perhaps someone has lost him and so far his owners havn't been traced.

I'd would die if something like this happened to Max - it just reinforced the fact that dogs really should be microchipped and personal details should be updated as circumstances change - it would save so much heartache.

Thanks folks for all your kind comments. I know all of you would do the same if you could :flwr:

Rory looks like a sweetie and Sannie I am so glad he is with you and safe. Hope he finds a forever home soon.

13th November 2006, 12:30 PM
What a gorgeous boy he is. Sad too to think that somewhere out there could be his family, devastated at losing him :(

Hug him tight for me too Sannie and kiss his head for me, poor darling little man :flwr:

I'll be taking him to where I can try to check that chip but talked to a few people and they don't think it will be likely we can trace it -- it is very hard to find chips from foreign databases and he won't have been chipped here with a non-ISO chip. If he can't be traced he will stay with Sannie as long as he fits in to her house. :)

Oh I would think so...

This is my bed! And I'm squashed up at the top!
Well it was a miserable night and they looked so comfy. They always get off after a bit and sleep on their blanket anyway! icon_whistling

oh bless him he certainly knows how to make himself at home!!

Thank you so much to everyone involved in making this wee fellow smile again :flwr: :flwr: :flwr:
