John did his first "Animal Ambulance" rescue run yesterday. He a got a phone call from K9 collected the ambulance and headed out to Villa Martin. His mission there was to collect 6 very young puppies which then had to be delivered to a saint of a fosterer who has just hand reared one litter and was ready and willing to take on another bunch. What an amazing lady she is. The mission did not end there however next stop was Punta Prima. No dogs this time but a chinchilla would you believe. This exotic creature was found on a traffic island and taken in by another Brit who was holidaying here. After three days of trying to find its owner or a new home she rang K9 for help. The lady was due to go home and needed to know the poor creature would be in good hands. It has been duly delivered to a kind hearted vet who will keep it till it is rehomed.
Chinchillas are crepuscular rodents, slightly larger than ground squirrels, native to the Andes mountains in South America.
