    Wow, heartbreaking story. Can't believe that poor girl isn't even a yr old yet. Thank goodness for people like you and the rescue people...

    Personally I would be keeping an eye out on the temperaments of the puppies. I would be keeping them until at least 9-10 weeks of age and seeing the attitudes, particularly of the males. These are going to be big, powerful dogs, if dad is inherently aggressive you may find the pups follow suit.

    I would be pulling them off mum ASAP, letting her only come in to feed occasionally and do most of the raising yourselves so they don't learn any bad temperament traits off her either. Run them with more stable dogs as they grow up.

    thankyou Kirsty for rescuing the wretched mother. What a state to be in. AND thirsty! absolute basic needs not met, grrrr

    but also thinking, this is what puts me off rehoming from pounds. The fear that somewhere in ancestry, is a dad like these pups have. Gene's just waiting to be woken.
    hope the Dad's aggression was nurture, not nature, for the pups sakes.

    I would so be sending in the RSPCA for this one.

    At least the woman was trying to do the right thing by rehoming the dogs but way too late.

    I'm thinking and hoping that the father was aggressive because of his environment, not because of his nature, when we were leaving he was being handled by a boy who was only 5 or 6 years old, so I guess if the kids are allowed around him, he can't be THAT bad.. but with those type of people, who knows.
    Mummy dog is very settled and stable now, she is very sweet and friendly now and is apparently reaching out to the rescue lady for pats and is wagging her tail, which is great I honestly don't think she has a nasty bone in her body.. she's just a great mum.

    Thanks everyone for all your help I will keep updating with photos as they recover and grow up

    Good on you Kristy for stepping up and doing this
    Thankfully there are people like you in this world. Unfortunately too many like the previous owners
    If there is a fund set up or similar more than happy to donate as well

    Oh she is really close to me, I have some medicated shampoo left over from Bella that I can give her and I can try and get a few other things together. I would be happy to drop it in to her house if she doesn't mind. I will be over that way on Wednesday.

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    It's really heart warming how much people help in a situation like this! I have a huge (and growing) collection of food and blankets people from the dog park donated yesterday, and will be getting a lot more today (which I will take to Brisbane on Friday) plus all you guys making donations too! Thank you so much!

    The rescue put some more photos on facebook today, the mum is already looking a thousand times better.. it's amazing what some food, water and love can do! She is lifting her head, and her eyes look so much brighter.. she actually looks like the wants to live now! She has been given a new name for her new start.. 'Anya' which means 'mother'

    Kristy i have a small pile of donations waiting to be taken to wherever they are needed. So far been to RSPCA, AWL and one of the logan pounds. So these guys sound like the next on the list. Have a small amount of tinned foods, some blankets, towels, etc. and a bit of medicated shampoo. Please PM me with email of this lady or if you want to pick this up yourself. There isn't much but it sounds like anything would help at this point. Poor animals, well done for stepping in.
