Poor Manu, she is such a nice girl, she did not deserve it. She is very gentle, very friendly and affectionate – she just loves people. She is friendly with all other dogs and actually quite playful. A lovely girl.

Reis: small in size, big in temperament

Information:

Name: Reis

Gender: M

Age: d-o-b: beg-2014

Size: small (3.5kg, 30cm)

Others: dewormed, vaccinated

Story:
Reis was found left in an apartment from which the tenant moved out and left for another country.
When he was brought to the shelter, he was so nervous that he tried to bite everyone. The first days were difficult but slowly he gained confidence. We still have to be careful when handling him, not just grab him and lift him but he is much better now, he likes attention, cuddles and human company.
But with other dogs he is just brilliant! He gets along with all of them, he is super at ease even with the dogs 10 times bigger than him!

Kika: a dog used to home is not well in the shelter

Information:

Name: Kika

Gender: F

Age: d-o-b: February 2016

Size: medium (16kg, 45cm)

Others: dewormed, vaccinated

Story:
Kika is the sweetest thing you can imagine. Lovely, gentle, kissy, trusting in people and looking for protection. She has always lived in a home but her owner got sick and cannot have her anymore (the truth is she should have never got a dog from the first place, she was never in condition to have one). But this is not Kika’s fault. Kika lived her calm life in a calm home and now she has ended up in a big and busy shelter which is a shock for her. 700 dogs, noise, no soft bed, not enough cuddles… You can see her pictures taken outside and inside the shelter.
Little Kika really needs a home. And she is a wonderful and loving dog.
She can easily live with other dogs. Two, three, four – but not 700.
She is good on the leash.
