Rex: he loves cats and dogs/ reserved

Information:

Name: Rex

Gender: F

Breed: x German shepherd

Age: d-o-b: 15 December 2019

Size: big (25kg, 55cm)

Others: dewormed, vaccinated, castrated

About:
Rex is a wonderful dog that was discarded by his family at no fault of his own.
They had him since a puppy. They got a puppy but they worked full time. So they had someone who walked the puppy once during the day for free. But one day this person was not available anymore, so the dog started to stay alone at home the whole day. So… instead of finding a solution, hiring a dog walker (well it would not be for free), they just dumped the dog in the shelter.
Rex was utterly unhappy the first days, just hiding in the corner and barking at everyone. At home with his people he was a social and happy dog, in the shelter he has become scared and stressed. He is used to living in a home, coming to the shelter for a dog like him is a traumatic experience.
Rex likes other dogs though and he plays a lot with them. Moreover, he lived with a cat and below you can see some movies of him playing with the cat, he just loves cats.
He walks well on the leash and he is used to living in a home (he lived in an apartment). We hope soon he can have his own home again.

Billy: all his life on the chain

Information:

Name: Billy

Gender: M

Age: d-o-b: ~2011

Size: small (8.5kg, 35cm)

Others: dewormed, vaccinated

About:
Billy lived all his life on the chain. Since a puppy. Why keep such a small dog on the chain? Or why keep any dog on the chain? Why have dogs if they are to live on the chain?
His owner died and after 10 years that was the release for Billy from his misery. He was brought to the shelter.
Billy is calm and gentle. He was a mistrustful when he was brought as he has never experienced any kindness in his life but in short time he learnt what is good. Now he likes to be cuddled and he comes to us to ask for attention. There is never enough cuddles for Billy. But he does not like to be lifted. He is not used to, noone ever had him on the lap. So he gets scared when we want to do it. He really does not like it. He is an old dog. We need to respect that there are some things he will not get to learn and lika.
He is very friendly with other dogs and he walks on the leash.
