About:
Stunning Rufus was surrendered to the shelter by his owner who went to live in another country. First he left the dog with his mother and she had him in an apartment for 3 months but she considered him too big for an apartment so she brought him to the shelter.
Yes, he is very big. But also very calm. It is amazing how well he walks on the leash. He is a strong dog but he walk on the leash just right next to his leader, he does not pull at all.
He sits on command. Very gentle, very obedient. Amazing dog. Ungrateful people.

Birger: nice and gentle, but people want big dogs as guards and not pets

Information:

Name: Birger

Gender: M

Age: d-o-b: ~2014

Breed: x castro laboreiro

Size: big (28kg, 55cm)

Others: dewormed, vaccinated, castrated

Story, Personality, Others:
Birger was surrendered to the shelter by his owner who cannot take care of him anymore. She surrendered all her dogs, 13 of them.
From what we can see she stopped caring for them long time ago, or she never did: they were not castrated and never vaccinated.
Birger is sweet and gentle. He is a bit shy at the first encounter but he wants to trust people so he quickly gains confidence and asks for attention. He is social with other dogs, males and females. He walks well on the leash.
