Noreen and her pup were found living in a vacant house in Ponemah village where they had been abandoned when the people moved out. Here's a pic of Noreen and her little Hugo, the surviving pup hiding behind her.
According to a Housing staff worker who came in to remodel the house, Noreen and her litter lived in the house, and thankfully the door was left open so Noreen could go in and out searching for food. By time she was found a month later, only one pup remained, little Hugo.
They were brought to the shelter on February 11, scared and hungry. As time went on they turned out to be wonderful animals. Noreen became Mike's favorite. She was spayed March 12 and left to All Dog Rescue. Hugo went to Last Hope Rescue on March 1, 2009. Hugo has been adopted and I received an update on him and photos, below.
I'm so glad he has such a good home after his very difficult beginning.
Here's what Hugo's new family says:
We recently had the pleasure of adopting Hugo ( now Koda Bear ) He is adjusting very well. My fiance and I just purchased a house in December and love our new addition to our family.He is a very smart little guy. He already is telling us when he needs to go outside to go to the bathroom and just the other day went down a flight of stairs all on his own for the first time.
We were kind of curious about his mothers breed and what kind of info you have on her. We will keep you updated on the adventures of Hugo (Koda Bear)
