I help rescue and look after street dogs in Thailand and I work with the wonderful Pic-a-pet4home in Bangkok to arrange adoptions. Throughout the 8 months that I have volunteered with the dogs, particularly in Bangkok, I have experienced immense joy and also utter sadness. I would like to share with you one of the happier stories about a doggie called Smartie (poodle), who I had a particular bond with, and his little friend, Palin. I hope it will inspire you to donate towards helping street dogs, particularly those in Thai shelters or/and to adopt (please get in touch); you don’t need to shop for a dog- there are plenty already looking for good homes, puppies and pedigrees included! I feel so happy to have met these gorgeous, gentle spirited doggies and to share in their journey to a happy life. I just wish there were more happy stories like this… but with more help, there can be. I hope you feel all warm inside after you’ve read Smartie and Palin’s story… 

Smartie was abandoned at a shelter in Bangkok by his owners. He’s only about one and a half years old. Unfortunately, his little friend didn’t make it through life at the shelter and joined his siblings at the rainbow bridge already.

Bye Bye Smartie! My last cuddle before Smartie was put in the car with Palin and embarked on the long jouney to LA – with the hope of a better future!
Smartie and Palin are both ADOPTED together by a man and his daughter in LA, Calafornia! They live with an elderly dog and a cat, who are said to be very welcoming! I’m over the moon and I have a good freling that this will be there happily ever after!
