04 Dog of the Month: Twilight

Hello! My name is Twilight and I am about eight months old. Just like any other young dog I like to play, cuddle and explore and am very affectionate and loving. The only difference to my other fluffy friends is that I have been born blind which must have been the reason why I was found dumped in front of the shelter one morning. But rest assured I can find my way around no problem! I am sterilised, got all my shots and have also been fully trained. I am urgently looking for a permanent home where I am cared for, loved and accepted the way I am and understanding shown in regard to my disposition. I get on very well with other dogs and would benefit a lot from having another dog to live and be friends with. Can you give me that home? If you want to meet me or even open your home and heart to me then, please contact the Care for Dogs shelter at 084 752 5255 (English), 086 913 8701 (Thai) or For more information, visit at .

We have Open House every Sunday 10.30 a.m. to 3.30 p.m. – spend some time with our kitties and find the one(s) just perfect for you! All are vaccinated and litter trained.
