4-Month-old Amelia has hit the jackpot. This week the one time sickly orphan was welcomed into the home of her furever family. And what a home Amelia has found. She has two loving owners, a four-legged brother whose tail wags when he sees her and lots of family and four-legged companions that come for visits. All of this makes Amelia’s ridiculously big heart beat faster. recently wrote about Amelia’s rough start in life. She was a sick girl on the day her owner tried to sell her at Canal Walk. A young Melkbosstrander noticed the puppy’s plight, and worried about might happen to her, bought her for a R100. On her way home to Melkbosstrand on the MyCiti bus she phoned her mother with the news of the sick puppy that she had bought. Her mother waited for her at Table View’s MyCiti bus stop and they took Amelia to the vet immediately.

And so, on this day when Amelia was being sold without a care for her well-being, her life also started to change for the better.

'Can we be friends?'

‘Can we be friends?’

'Oh, no!'

‘Oh, no!’

It was at this stage that Peanut Animal Welfare came into the puppy’s life. She was fostered, and judged to be a loving playful puppy.

At a recent adoption day at the Birkenhead Center this side of her nature showed. She approached a smaller puppy but got a look that said ‘You’re barking up the wrong tree, girl. Don’t go on or I will have a bone to pick with you.” The look on Amelia’s face said, ‘Oh no!’

No more droopy tails for Amelia. Thanks to Peanut Animal Welfare, and the girl that rescued Amelia from the puppy seller, Amelia’s time has finally come. For more information about Peanut Animal Welfare contact Michelle Worsfold on 073 300 5100 or visit
