The nest with cute sheepdogs is taken care of by the farmer after they have left

The puppies are hoping to finish a new home: Cute sheepdog litters are taken in by the farmer after being left on the side of a road

  • Farmer Carwyn Thomas assumed the puppies had escaped from another farm
  • He heard that one of his own workers had found them along the way
  • Carwyn Thomas suspected the puppies had been dumped by someone passing by

When Farmer Carwyn Thomas discovered six disheveled sheepdog puppies sheltering from the rain in his livestock trailer, he assumed they had escaped from another farm nearby.

So he posted on Facebook asking everyone with information to contact him, and sheltered the pups in a stable – where they hurled ten cans of dog food between them within a few hours and quickly bounced around noisily.

He heard that one of his own workers found them on the side of the road and put them in the trailer for safety after they followed him into the yard.

“But as the day went on, no one came to claim them,” said 32-year-old Thomas.

“I suspect they were dumped by someone passing by, there’s no other logical explanation.”

The puppies, which were not microchipped, were checked by a vet from Mr. Thomas, who keeps 400 sheep and livestock on 150 acres in Llanerchymedd, Anglesey. Despite having fleas, they were in good health.

He contacted the North Clwyd Animal Rescue Center, which agreed to collect the dogs and attempt to relocate them.

Mr. Thomas joked that he was lucky that his wife, Catrin, 28, a supermarket manager, was working when he found the puppies.

“She loves dogs and would like to keep them,” he said. “I don’t think our Cocker Spaniel Alaw would have been too happy about it.”
