Cravo: saved from the fires

Information:

Name: Cravo

Gender: M

Age: d-o-b: December 2016

Size: small (8.5kg, 40cm)

Others: dewormed, vaccinated, castrated

Story:
This is Cravo. A small dog that was found all burnt in a place affected by terrible fires in central Portugal in June 2017. He was a lastimable sight… He was taken to the vet and treated. His pictures circulated facebook and during the first week offers to give him a home were showering. Unfortunately they were all emotional statements uttered in spur of the moment as months later the dog was still homeless. The vets did a wonderful job, his skin healed nicely, his fur grew and … he ended up in a municipal pound as no one wanted him.
We brought him in and he is a lovely dog, one that really deserves a home. Gentle, cuddly, affectionate and social with other dogs. He is not scared or shy nor traumatised of anything. Dogs can put bad experiences behind better than people. Good he is not on facebook as he would get very disappointed to learn how many people promised him home but none really meant it… We hope now one serious person appears for him. Just one.
