Information:

Names: Rita

Gender: F

Age: d-o-b: 1 November 2018

Size: medium (18kg, 50cm)

Others: dewormed, vaccinated, sterilised

Story, Personality, Others:
Rita is gentle, loving and affectionate. She was brought to us from the municipal pound. She is just a normal dog. Not one of those dogs that people fight to adopt. Not pedigree, not small pocket dog, not white and fluffy. Just a normal dog like many others, the dog that is usually overlooked. Let´s hope that someone will see her inner beauty and will choose her. As she is a great dog. Gentle, social, friendly. Lovely with people and other dogs. Good on the leash.

Marlin: friendly and playful

Information:

Names: Marlin

Gender: M

Age: d-o-b: October 2019

Size: medium (16kg, 50cm)

Others: dewormed, vaccinated

Story, Personality, Others:
Marlin came to us when the owner did not want him anymore and this is certainly for the best as the poor dog was kept on the chain since a puppy. Regardless this Marlin is a very sweet, friendly and loving dog. He loves human company and he gets along with other dogs. He has lots of energy as he is young and likes to run and play.

Mel: heartbreaking!

Information:

Names: Mel

Gender: F

Breed: Portuguese podengo

Age: d-o-b: ~2010

Size: small (7kg, 40cm)

Others: dewormed, vaccinated, sterilised

Story, Personality, Others:
The story of Mel makes you cry. She was abandoned and living on the street. Some people fed her and some people chased her. One day she was hit by a car. Municipal pound was called, they took her with, she was limping, an Xray was done and nothing was broken. So she was put in a cage there, where she stayed for a year. People don´t easily adopt old dogs but also no one knew that sweet Mel was there… Municipal kennels don´t do promotion of dogs, those are places where dogs are forgotten. Mel lost a year of her life. Now let´s hope what she has left she can spend in a home.
Mel is very sweet and extremely gentle, no one gets any gentler than that. Absolute sweetie.
She was very dirty when she came, she got a bath (some photos are after the bath if you look) and she was very patient.
She is good with other dogs.
She walks on the leash but slowly. One leg is weaker, it must have been damaged when she was hit by a car but as it was a year ago and nothing was done then, it is too late to fix it now. She is not in pain, she just limps. See on the video.
