Little Tuxon and his siblings are so very lucky to be alive. The six border collie cross puppies were found dumped in a bin in Adelaide’s north east in April 2017.
RSPCA South Australia Inspector Craig responded to the call and rushed the abandoned litter to RSPCA Lonsdale for medical intervention.
Veterinary care and love in a foster home
Only a few weeks old and separated from their mother, Tuxon and his five siblings were placed into foster care for seven weeks after receiving some much needed veterinary care. Finally, the lucky litter of puppies were placed up for adoption.
Having worked in a pet shop for six years and understanding the benefits of choosing the adoption option, Eva and her partner Matt were ready to open their hearts and home to a lucky dog.
With his distinctive eye colour and luscious mane of hair, Tuxon was an easy choice for Eva. “Tuxon stood out from all the other pups, his markings and his beautiful blue eyes made it easy to choose him,” explains proud Eva.
