Story, Personality, Others:
Friendly Ralf was sent to us from a municipal pound. This place has been considered one of the worst in Portugal to the point that was publicly denounced by the PAN (Party for Animals and Nature) as not fulfilling basis conditions for receiving abandoned dogs. Moreover, during the surprise visit by the representatives of the party they noted that the door was dead locked during what was advertised hours for adoption.
So the dogs are in terrible conditions there but noone can adopt because the public is met by a locked door. Now they found a solution that is the easiest – send the dogs away to private shelters where good people, not the state, will contribute.
In total we have received 25 dogs from there.
For your interest, this is the article, in Portuguese, of the audit made by PAN:
Ralf is one of the dogs that came. He is an extremely sweet puppy, not even the awful conditions of the pound managed to break his spirit. He is the first to greet visitors, he runs to people, even to strangers and he asks for attention. Very gentle, friendly, lovely and also good with other dogs.
