Nala: her son did not like the “toy”

Information:

Name: Nala

Gender: F

Age: d-o-b: 10 January 2019

Size: will be big

Others: dewormed, vaccinated

Story:
Little Nala was brought from a home where the owner of the dogs was not responsible, did not sterilise his dog, the dog had puppies and he dumped the puppies in the shelter. Nala was adopted from us when she was 2 months old and brought back a month later because the woman’s son “did not adapt to her”. This is what she said. Basically her son got bored of his new toy. Stupid people! Puppy is not a toy! When will people learn that puppies are not presents to their kids?
Lovely Nala deserves better. She is a sweet, friendly, gentle and social puppy. We hope this time a responsible person appears for her.

Size: medium-big (25kg, 55cm)

Others: dewormed, vaccinated

Story:
Joly had a happy life in a village since a puppy. Then his owners got old. The woman went to a nursing home. The man stayed a bit longer bit he got sick and had to go to the hospital for a prolonged treatment. The dog ended up homeless. How many stories like this we heard. The dog was brought to the shelter.
And he is a lovely, friendly, gentle old dog. Those make the best pets.
He gets along with everyone. And especially chicken and donkeys as he grew up among them. Often people ask if we have a dog that can live with chicken. This is not easy, most dogs would hunt them. But here is the one! Gentle with everyone. Friends of chicken.
We hope Joly can still find a lovely home for his retirement….

Millie: a year to gain her trust

Information:

Name: Millie

Gender: F

Breed: x labrador

Age: d-o-b: ~mid-2017

Size: medium-big (20kg, 50cm)

Others: dewormed, vaccinated, sterilised

Story:
Millie and her two siblings were brought to the shelter in April 2018. They lived on the street. They were friendly but shy. They trusted people that were feeding them but they did not allow themselves to be touched. It was not easy to catch them but finally they were caught and brought to the shelter.
In the shelter they continued shy and fugitive but they also seemed happy dogs – they played and run around with other dogs.
We noticed an important improvement when Nina, a dog that was very social and friendly with people was added to their kennel. Nina taught them to trust people. They copied her.
Millie is the one of the three siblings that made the greatest progress. She already comes to people she knows, she trusts, she accepts a leash and she likes going on a walk. She is very gentle and still shy, especially with new people, but she has made a great improvement. Of course in a home, with a human attention focused on her she would improve even more.
