Pet Adoption Friday: Sora and Theodore from SOSD Singapore

Sora

Name: Sora
Age: 6 months old
Sex: Female
Breed: Mongrel
Personality: Sora gets along well with children and dogs. She is learning the boundaries at home, and to pee on papers. She is very active and energetic. Food is her biggest strength and weakness; she will do anything for it. This makes her relatively easy to train as you can get her attention, even with a small piece of treat. Sora is HDB approved!

Theodore

Name: Theodore
Age: 3 years old
Sex: Male
Breed: Mongrel
Personality: Theodore is a big and friendly boy, always wagging his butt... Er, we mean tail in glee whenever he sees humans coming his way. He is highly affectionate, and loves giving kisses to any humans he meets! Theodore has been with us for a tad too long now and we really wonder why this boy hasn't found his forever home yet, because he is just so sweet!

If you're interested in either Sora or Theodore, please fill up the adoption form and SOSD Singapore will get in touch with soon.

Pet Care Tips: What is a microchip?

The microchip is not really a new invention anymore but a lot of people are still not aware what it is. If you don't register your pet's microchip somewhere, you are never going to be able to trace him back if he goes missing.

Remember, if you have a dog in Singapore, he must be microchipped and licensed with the AVA.
