We nicknamed her ‘Fishy’ because this poor little pup was left tied to the gate of our Hobart Home one night, and when staff arrived to take her inside, they quickly discovered that she had a fishhook caught in her mouth.
An emergency trip to the vet to remove it, and then little Fishy went to foster care in the Ron Barwick Minimum Security Prison, where residents provide care to some of our dogs through the Pups on Parole program. This program is good for dogs and good for people – our Behaviour Trainer teaches the residents about dog care and training, and they give the dogs needing some extra support training and affection.
After a couple of weeks of care, Fishy was ready to be desexed and offered for adoption to her new home. Onwards and upwards little Fishy, we couldnt be happier for you.
