Mae’s story in the words of Isobel:
When I opened the back door to my ground floor flat in New Rajinder Nagar, New Delhi one morning last September, I found seven very cute little puppies outside. Their mother had brought them to live just opposite my door in the lane at the back of my flat.
I took over from Mum when the time came with feeding duties and my vivid recollection of last year’s Diwali, was building them a little shelter so as to keep them safe from the crackers and fireworks and checking on them every half hour.
Sadly, over the course of two or three months, I lost one to Parvovirus/Gastroenteritis, one went missing despite my checking the local animal shelter and another passed away and so I am now left with four big puppies.
Mae, originally quite independent and liked doing her own thing, although again friendly and sweet. However, sometime during the night/early morning on Saturday 21st April life changed for Mae. I came out of my flat at around 7am that morning and found her sitting on the floor and not reacting to my presence which was strange. When I got her to stand, which she did very gingerly, I noticed her back right leg was not corresponding with the rest of her body. After a visit to the Vet Lab to be x-rayed and seeing Dr Choudhary, she was diagnosed with a broken right leg and fractured pelvis. She spent 6 weeks in a medical centre in Delhi and made excellent, albeit slow, progress. Now, nearly 5 months on, she is able to run and play with a slight limp and is now a very affectionate and loving dog, grateful for the care and attention she received during her recovery. In fact, she regularly likes to come inside the flat and will settle on my floor if given a chance, however, she is not allowed to stay in the flat and so I have to move her back outside, I would love it that she could stay permanently in someone’s home and not have to be taken back outside. Mae does bark at strangers but has never bitten anyone; she would make an excellent companion for a single lady/man who would enjoy some company and a little protection in their home.
