A good Samaritan discovered a litter of four abandoned Cocker Spaniel puppies in an alley in Redhill, Surrey.The litter had patchy skin and crusty eyes, as well as being severely ill from critical infections. Workers at Chobham’s Millbrook Animal Centre took them in.
The puppies, named Mike, El, Lucas, and Dustin, recovered magnificently after months of meticulous care. This was quickly followed by perfect happy endings for Mike, El, and Lucas – all of whom were adopted by wonderful families. Dustin, on the other hand, was still waiting for his precious moment in the sun.The puppies, named Mike, El, Lucas, and Dustin, recovered magnificently after months of meticulous care.
Dustin, unlike his mild-mannered siblings, was not cut out for a settled and sheltered family life.He had an explorer’s soul, and his exuberance was simply too much for potential adopters.He enjoyed puzzles and games, but no one was willing to meet his constant need for stimulation.After transforming the sickly Dustin into a beautiful boy, the workers were disappointed to learn of his unpopularity among adopters. When the adventurer pooch became bored at the shelter, the workers began hiding his tennis balls in unusual places to keep him entertained.Dustin’s life was changed forever as a result of this exercise!Dustin’s amazing sniff-and-search abilities prompted the workers to contact the local police and presentDustin as a possible recruit.Within a few days, everything was in order, and Dustin was hired as a new member of the Surrey and Sussex Dog Unit!
Dustin (now Badger) works alongside Officer Steph Barrett, sniffing out drugs, cash, and weapons for the cops.Dustin has come a long way in the first 20 months of his life, from being abandoned on the streets to overcoming rejection and discovering his true calling. We are so proud of him and wish him the best of luck!
