Beat the Monday Blues: Things we can learn from dogs

The heartwarming video we have for you today will show you a perspective that you might have missed when life seems to be going downhill. Our dear doggy friends are going to show us how much life is worth living for.

Having a pet has a lot of benefits. They don’t just provide companionship, but they teach us the positivity of life too. Treat them with care and shower them with lots of love.

Pet Adoption Friday: Autumn and Wanda from SoSD Singapore


Name: Autumn
Age: 5 Months old
Sex: Female
Breed: Mongrel/ Singapore Special
HDB-approved: Unknown

Autumn is an intelligent girl who has mastered basic commands such as "sit" and "paw" in just a week. Being an active pup, she gets excited easily and tends to jump on people for attention. She is both paper and grass-trained. She is very affectionate to humans and gets along well with other dogs. As she is in her teething stage, she tends to nip her humans on their hands, legs and ankles. But overall, she will make a lovely pet to a loving family.


Name: Wanda
Age: 7 Months old
Sex: Female
Breed: Mongrel/ Singapore Special
HDB-approved: Yes

Shy and reserved at first, Wanda warms up pretty fast once she's more comfortable. She shows affection by following her humans around the house, lying down by their side and showering them with occasional licks. Unlike a typical puppy, she doesn't crave for much attention from her humans. Although her energy level is quite low, she loves going for walks! At times, she needs her personal space. Wanda is paper-trained and is rather independent. You can definitely trust her with your house when no one's home as she is such a good girl.
