Happy's titre test has passed so he is ready to fly to the UK. Everyone will miss him, he is a big character in a small body but we know this move is in the best interest of Happy, so that he can be part of loving family. Our volunteer Yao Yao especially loves Happy and gives him regular cuddles ❤
When Blind Dog Rescue UK originally said they would take Happy, we started a fundraiser to raise the costs for the flight. Although people did donate, we still fell short of the total amount. Blind Dog Rescue UK have said they will pay the remaining cost but we're sure you will agree, being a charity themselves the money they would pay for the remainder of the flight will come out of charity donations and would be best used for the blind dogs they look after and rehabilitate. That is why we need your help. Please could you spare the cost of a cup of coffee? If all our supporters did that we would raise the remainder and more. If you can help Happy get home, please donate via the button opposite. Thank you for helping Happy!
Because Happy's new home will be the UK, he needs to have a microchip, the rabies vaccination and then 30 days later, blood is taken and the serum of the blood is sent to a laboratory in Changchun. This is known as a titre test.
It is UK law and a dog cannot enter unless a titre test has been performed and the dog has pass. Now we must wait for the result to decide when Happy can fly to England.
Happy has been weighed and measured for his flight crate. These recordings are given to our partners at the transport company for them to make sure the right size of crate is available for Happy to travel the long journey to England. We wish he could understand what is happening and why..
Happy enjoyed his last Christmas in China. Ms Du took photos of him for everyone to see. He is so cute!
In future, Happy will spend every Christmas, for the rest of his life, in England!
We contacted Blind Dog Rescue UK to ask if they could help get Happy adopted to a good home in the UK. They said yes! This is such good news. This charity specialises in blind dogs so they will know how to train Happy so that he adapts to a home environment. He will then hopefully find a loving home, someone to love him for the rest of his life. Piecess are finally coming together for Happy and we couldn't be happier too!
Happy was rescued after he and his siblings were found abandoned on the streets as puppies. Happy was born blind but as he has never known the world through sight, he gets around very well. He still enjoys playing like any young dog and we would love for him to find his own forever home where he can live life to the fun, exploring new places and smells. Happy's siblings found homes in no time. Unfortunately disabled dogs find homes homes rarely in China... it's such a shame because they have so much to give someone. They would return your love tenfold.
