I have got a call for help from the Bitlis family, the owners of the Sunset Beach Club in Lapta.
The Bitlis family have taken the young dogs, but because they themselves have five dogs, they are now looking for new owners for the unexpected newcomers.
The two puppies, I believe they are Husky-mix, are about eight weeks old and in excellent condition. They are socially very friendly, playful and cuddly, not anxious, but very curious.
There is a male one named “Snickers” and a female one named “Mango”.
Anyone who wants to take one of the dogs or both of them, please directly call Dilek Bitlis on phone number 0533 – 865 71 71 or mail us to email@example.com!
The two puppies will be examined by the vet and vaccinated next week after Bayram. The costs will be taken over by the Bitlis family. Thanks to them for this extraordinary gesture of animal love.
