Pawfect ending: Missing pups sold on Gumtree returned to mum

Tags: community animals bestof2017 bestof2017_wk4


All six puppies that were sold on Gumtree have been reunited with their mother Lilly.

The frantic search for the dogs began on Monday, when a friend of the owner sold six of Lilly’s nine puppies for $50 each.

The individuals who bought the dogs were told that their mother was already dead, so they did not realise they were separating the dogs and putting their lives at risk.

Founder and Manager of Brightside Farm Sanctuary, Emma Haswell, has been on a mission for the past four days to find the puppies. She talks with Brian Carton about their condition, what’s next for them, and her very special bond with their mother Lilly.
