Stars: she needs our help!

Information:

Name: Stars

Gender: female

Age: d-o-b: ~October 2013

Size: small (6kg, 40cm)

Others: dewormed, vaccinated,

Story, Personality, Others:
Stars was found on the road, she had been hit by a car. Her back leg was pretty back, bones shattered and she needed surgery. But she did not loose her leg!
Now that the cast was taken off and the leg is healed, she is learning to walk again. But she hardly uses this leg – when she runs, she simply lifts it up. In order to walk properly she needs to do a physiotherapy and hydrotherapy, at least a month. It has proved very effective before, with dogs in similar situation. Please help us to pay her physiotherapy. We depend on your donations. And Stars needs help.

Stars is a very sweet and gentle dog, lovely with people and friendly with other dogs.

Larissa: big cuddly teddy-bear

Information:

Name: Larissa

Gender: female

Age: d-o-b: beg-2012

Size: big (30kg, 55cm)

Others: dewormed, vaccinated,

Story, Personality, Others:
Larissa was found on the street. She was brought to the shelter and she resulted to be super affectionate with people. She only wants attention and cuddles. She is big and fluffy so it is like hugging a big teddy-bear. And she loves playing and running too!
With other dogs she was a bit insecure at the beginning – she stayed in a separate kennel and she was barking at all of them through the fence. But afterwards she was put in the same kennel with other dogs and there were no problems. So with proper introduction she could live with other dogs.
When Larissa was found, her paw cushions were all red. She probably walked a long distance. Bandages were put on her paws to protect them, this is why on some pictures she appears with bandaged paws. But since then the bandages were taken off and her paw cushions are completely healed.
