Caring

Dingo x – – to hell and back

Continuation from Harry’s Facbook Post

This is our new little man, brought in from Mount Garnet Area.  Because of the cruel actions by a few young kids, this Dingo-x is permanently disabled.

First he lost his mother and siblings, they were all shot to death.  He had been living close to where he was born and had never caused the station owner any hassles.  A few idiots decided they would chase him down on a quad bike for fun.  His hip had either been broken or severely dislocated by the force of the collision.

A lovely young lady took him under her wing and cared for him for four weeks until she decided he would have a much safer life here at Eagles Nest. Because his hip was never professionally treated, it has healed in the wrong spot. To fix the damage would take major surgery and would put his life at risk.

Currently it does not seem to cause him pain. He is a sweet little guy although he is very scared. He has made a few new friends here and has settled in nicely.

Something that all Dingo lovers wish for is for everybody to just accept them.  Thoughtless murder and cruelty deserves justice.  The groups that are fighting for this right, and Dingo rights, please don’t ever give up.

‘Sorry’

“No ray of sunlight is ever lost, but the green that it wakes needs time to sprout, and it is not always granted to the sower to see the harvest. All work that is worth anything is done in faith.”

An update on ‘Sorry’,

‘Sorry’ came to us when he was approximately 197 days old, he weighed only 970 grams, when he should have weighed at least 1488,  this is 518 grams lighter then he should be.  This is well over a THIRD of his weight.

He really is a fighter to pull through from this. In the last Week, on average, he has gained 24 grams a day. This is well over the average of 16.8 grams a day. He sucking on the bottle so hard now, he is like a vacuum.

Slowly but surely he is coming around, his fur is growing back and he is much more lively. Every day is another achievement.

It will be very hard to let him go when he is old enough and strong enough to take care of himself. But it will be best for him, as he belongs in the wild, this is what caring is about, making sure that the animal returns to the wild, knowing that they can look after themselves.
