Those 4 dogs lived all their life in a cement cell with only one small window that gave very little light. They were a property of an old guy who thought that this is how someone should keep the dogs. He never wanted to give them away, for him, they were fine. He was one of those people that never realized that dogs have feelings too.
When the guy went to live in a home, the dogs were “free” so they were brought to the shelter. Their life changed for the better – they have a big space, they can be outside as much time as they want and they can sleep in a spacious wooden house.
But they are very traumatised dogs. They spent their lifetime being neglected and abused. They are very scared of people and they will probably never learn to trust. They are gentle though. They can be caught, albeit with difficulty, but they accept to be treated and vaccinated and they are not aggressive. Just very scared.
Their probably spent all their lives in the shelter. It will be difficult to rehome them. But at least we can give them some quality of life in the shelter. Apart from the most obvious, food, they need annual vaccinations, Scalibor collars every 4 months, internal deworming… We need people to sponsor them because more dogs for the lifetime is more cost for the shelter.
We call them “The dogs of the old guy”. Although we also gave them names: Vigia, Veloz, Valente and Vivaz. There are two males and two females.
Size: big (30kg, 55cm)
Others: dewormed, vaccinated, sterilised
Story, Personality, Others:
Kira was found on the street and since then, now nearly 3 years, she has been in the shelter.
She is a high energy dog, with lots of happiness and kisses to give. Kira is a cuddling girl that loves people, petting, treats and attention. She walks well on the leash but she will always want to go faster than her human, perfect for jogging!
Despite all the hyperactivity she’s very obedient and focused on her guide, she loves to learn new stuff and would be great at any dog training or games, she even knows some basic obedience already.
She is social with other dogs but can easily be a single pet.
