Trooper - Dec 2023

Update Posted : 25 Dec 2023


Male 4 years old

We are happy to report that Trooper is no longer in a commercial boarding facility. We have moved him to a wonderful home boarding (JUST FOR HIM) where he will get to roam and play freely with 2 other dogs.

We are relieved that the lady was kind enough to allow Trooper into her home after hearing about his sad past and albeit high distrust for humans, she recognises that only a home environment where he gets to interact, socialise and live an awesome life is what will make Trooper thrive.

The first few days were very rough, as Trooper was not used to her, and would lunge and tried to bite as a defence mechanism. That though, is now a thing of the past. After a short 1 week, Trooper has come to learn that the new home is accepting, warm and with 2 other dogs (also with sad past) to guide him along, slowly but surely, he will come around and learn that there are people who treasure him and will do whatever it takes to ensure he is well looked after.

All these would not have been possible and achievable without YOUR support. After living in commercial boarding for over 1 year, he is finally in a home where he can learn to be himself and to trust the ones who are there to help him.

This Christmas, we would like to give thanks to those who have contributed to Trooper's boarding, shared his appeal, liked his posts, etc. Despite not being able to rehome him, finding him this wonderful home boarding is pretty damn close to that!

We will continue to provide for Trooper, including paying for his home boarding + food + training + any medical or transport necessary for him as a gesture of our gratitude. This may be for the long haul, but know that he is in great hands and we will not stop providing for him.

Presenting this goofy boy, wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy 2024!

Trooper was returned to us in Oct 2021 at 1 years old, as he’d bitten the helper on several occasions. Adopted as a wee puppy, he wasn’t given the opportunity to undergo positive rehabilitation and his owners decided he must leave their home asap.

Such is the life of a dog, no second chances, no seeking to understand why he had bitten. As his last owner told us:” Trooper has caused us a lot of grief in the last few months so he needs to go ASAP.”

We read back the previous text correspondences, when the family was so excited to welcome him as part of their family, versus now when they want him gone. Whatever happened to adopting a dog is forever?

When we went to take him, he was tied to a huge pillar outdoors, citing safety reasons and the sight of the poor dog being tied up broke our hearts. He was out of that dreadful place within 15 min.

Trooper has been back with us for a month now, and has been receiving rehabilitation training. He’s come a long way and is almost ready to be rehomed again.

As his current fosterer will be traveling in 3 weeks for work, we will need to find him an adopter before she flies.

Trooper lacks trust, and he will need time and patience to regain that. He gets along fine with other dogs, is very playful but has a tendency to guard his resources. He likes his space and will show his displeasure when it’s intruded upon.

He’s healthy, sterilized and vaccinated.

Due to his past, we are seeking out for a suitable adopter who may possibly fit the following requirements:

1. Singles/couples

2. Strictly no kids / senior folks (this is non-negotiable)

3. Willing to spend time to continue the existing training framework that he’s currently undergoing (this is non-negotiable)

4. Strictly no helper

We are relieved that Trooper is now back with us and receiving the help he so needs, with your kind and generous donation towards our call to train the dogs under our care.
