The poor little pup which later came to be called Shanti, was covered in thistles and crying with despair having just escaped drowning. Imagine being fortunate enough to find just the right window to howl under.
Sonette gave in to the pup’s cries as much from a need for sleep as anything but when she saw the pup, it was a matter of love from then on. This cute little pup touched the heart of everyone on the Yoga course and they all pitched in to help out. One of the big problems was finding a home for a stray in a country over-run with stray animals. Sonette could not bring Shanti home to Australia because of strict quarantine laws; particularly from countries with rabies.
Having seen to all Shanti’s health needs with local vets, Sonette became determined to find Shanti a home. The likely places were Canada or the USA. Following a concerted and widespread facebook campaign, Shanti found a wonderful home in Canada.
