Branquinha: after many years of pain, now enjoying her life

Information:

Name: Branquinha

Gender: F

Age: ~2008

Size: medium (25kg, 45cm)

Others: dewormed, vaccinated, sterilised

Story, Personality, Others:
Branquinha was left in the shelter by her owner and she has been there for 3 years already….
She had a chronical ear infection: we tried the usual treatments, different kinds of drops and antibiotics but it did not help. The operation was the only solution and we needed to proceed with it as Branquinha was in pain.
Finally both ears were operated at the university hospital of the veterinary faculty. It was a long operation, each ear needed hours so one was operated in January 2014 and the other in March 2014. Now she is fine and can finally enjoy her life without a pain – although we are not sure if she hears well.
She needs a home. Who would like to offer it to her?
Branquinha is a lovely dog, calm, social and friendly. Good in the car and good on the leash. Houseclean.

Shanti: a special dog

Information:

Name: Shanti

Gender: F

Age: d-o-b: ~2009

Size: big (25kg, 55cm)

Others: dewormed, vaccinated, sterilised

Story, Personality, Others:
Shanti was living on the street, we don’t know for how long. She was a victim of abuse and mistreated so when she came to us she was extremely afraid of humans. It took a long time for her to adjust to the shelter and the staff but she has made a lot of progresses.
She is a lovely dog once she trusts you, she shows her affection by jumping and racing like silly! But she is not a kisser and she is not yet ready for hugs, she does however enjoy pats on the back and nose touching (yes, just like dogs do it!). She has a very calm nature but an athletic body, she doesn’t need a lot of exercise or activity but does enjoy walks, the nature, jumping and running.
Shanti is ready to be adopted but she needs a special family that is willing to accept her limitations, work with her and give her time to evolve. She will have a hard time adjusting and will need lots of treats and patience, but mostly, someone that knows she will never be a “normal” dog and just wants to save a special dog.
She would progress better in a home with other dogs, just by having canine company she feels safer. She is good with both male and female dogs, is extremely respectful with cats and will tolerate children but they do scare her. She has zero aggressiveness in her, just fear and insecurity. She is house clean, walks perfectly on the leash and travels calmly in the car
