Shy: like her name, she is timid…

Information:

Name: Shy

Gender: Female

Age: d-o-b ~mid-2009

Size: medium (20kg, 50cm)

Others: dewormed, vaccinated, spayed

Story, personality, temperament:
Shy and her sister, Mel, were found on the beach with their mum, Sofia. They were still puppies and they were probably born there, on the beach. Yes, the other side of the postcard: when you go sun-tan on the Portuguese beach, think that after you leave, at the end of the summer, the dogs will abandoned there because it is an easy place to abandon them.
Shy was still a puppy when she came to the shelter with her mum and sister, so she never had a home and she is a very shy of people and scared of unknown sounds. She could go to a home and we hope she will one day but she will need patience and adaptation period.
She is social with other dogs and very very gentle.

Mel was still a puppy when she came to the shelter with her mum and sister, so she never had a home and she is a bit shy of people and scared of unknown sounds. But she is much more social than her sister. She comes to people, she wags her tail, she turns belly up for cuddling. She wants to learn and trust, although going to a home would require an adaptation period as she never had one. She should go to a calm environment.
She is social with other dogs and very gentle with people. Calm temperament.

Sofia: mum with two puppies…..

Information:

Name: Sofia

Gender: Female

Age: d-o-b ~2006

Size: medium (30kg, 50cm)

Others: dewormed, vaccinated, spayed

Story, personality, temperament:
Sofia was found on the beach with her two daughters when they were still puppies, that was many years ago. Sofia definitely had a home before, she is used to people and really loves their company. Amd she turns belly up immediately when you approach her. She is also used to a leash.
Her daughters are much more shy, they were probably born on the street and never had lots of human contact….
Sofia is a lovely dog, gentle, cuddly, friendly, with people and with other dogs.
Sofia needs a diet though….. She used to be a slim doggy before her sterilisation but in the shelter those things are difficult to control…
