Meet Kanchi – 7 moths old, parvo survivor and belle of the Friendicoes brat – pack, a.k.a: the permanent shelter residents. Kanchi’s story starts in April of this year when Anjum Nath, a Friendicoes patron called up the team for help. A stray bitch in New Friends Colony area of the city had died, leaving behind a litter of 5 young puppies all of which seemed to be violently sick. The rescue team promptly drove to the site and found that 3 of the puppies had already died. The remaining two were in dismal condition, vomiting, listless and passing bloody stools. Classic symptoms of the deadly canine parvovirus. The two fur balls were rushed back to the Defence Colony shelter where they were kept in isolation and immediately subjected for a blood test. Even before the reports returned confirming our worst fears that they did indeed have Parvo, the fourth puppy breathed his last.
Left with just one baby, the staff doubled their efforts, monitoring her 24 x 7 for almost a month. Some days she seemed better and on the way to healing while on others she would lie listlessly in a corner plummeting every body’s hopes of a miracle. During this time, the shelter staff, many of who come from Nepal started fondly referring to the small puppy with big eyes as “Kanchi”. Finally, on a steady diet of love and anti – biotics, Kanchi made a miraculous recovery. Beating the odds, to become a rare survivor of a normally fatal virus.
Today, Kanchi is a bright, spunky, entitled young lady, constantly getting up to mischief. She harasses the older canines, never misses a chance to steal shoes, plays endless games of tug of war with her best friend Blackie, the black lab and barks loudly at any new dog entering her territory. Her appetite for both life and food is unmatched and at the end of the day when she curls on to her mattress and looks up at us with her expressive eyes, we all know she was worth every bit of trouble we went through to keep her alive!
