Pixel: hunters clear their stock?

Size: medium/big (23kg, 55cm)

Others: dewormed, vaccinated, castrated

Story:
Pixel was found abandoned on the road near the shelter.
It is not the first GSP abandoned near the shelter in the least few weeks. Looks like the hunting season is finished and the hunters are getting rid of the dogs that did not satisfy them.
Pixel is a young and energetic dog, but at the same time he is very lovely and social – he gets along with other dogs and he is very nice with people.

Maya: calm, balanced temperament

Information:

Name: Maya

Gender: F

Breed: x German shorthair pointer

Age: d-o-b: March 2015

Size: medium-big (25kg, 50cm)

Others: dewormed, vaccinated, sterilised

Story:
Maya was found on the street, with her puppies. They were taken to a municipal kennel and puppies found homes quickly. Not Maya. She was there for nearly a year. In the meantime she was sterilised, which is not very common for municipal kennels, but if things are not done properly better not to do them at all.
When we got Maya from that municipal kennel she had her breasts full of milk (and no one noticed before she was sent to us!) which made us think she was pregnant. Indeed, when she was operated, pieces of ovaries were found so she was not properly sterilised the first time… The ovaries were the cause of her entering into psychological pregnancy, hence the milk… Well… she is properly neutered now.

She resulted to be a lovely dog, very calm, very pleased to be inside, easily attached to people, good on the leash and friendly with other dogs. Really an easy dog to adapt to a new home… We wonder what her life was before but she definitely had a home one day.

Carracinha – little tick how they call her

Information:

Name: Carracinha

Gender: F

Breed: x German shorthair pointer

Age: d-o-b: ~2015

Size: medium (15kg, 45cm)

Others: dewormed, vaccinated, sterilised

Story:
This lovely girl was brought to the municipal pound by her owner, together with her little daughter actually. Noone that minimally likes their dog leaves the dog in one of those horrible places.
Her puppy was immediately killed by a pack of big dogs as in this place they do not take care of separating the dogs in a way that would keep them out of harm. You do not put a small puppy with a whole pack of big adult dogs. But they don’t care.
We were going to rescue the mum and the puppy. Due to their negligence we only had a mum to rescue.
Carracinha, the little tick, is such a loving girl. She is really affectionate, she follows people, she asks for attention. Really sweet girl. Good on the leash. Friendly with other dogs.
