Shiva: abandoned after 8 years

Information:

Name: Shiva

Gender: F

Age: d-o-b: 25 April 2012

Size: medium (17kg, 50cm)

Others: dewormed, vaccinated, sterilised

Story, Personality, Others:
Shiva was brought by her owner who lost his job and is moving to another place and he cannot take her with. Or this is what he says.
Shiva is a nice and gentle dog who is used to living in a home. She lived with cats and children. But she also seems used to other dogs.
She walks well on the leash.
When she entered the shelter she was already quite apprehensive. But we could still pet her and interact with her. After spending the first night in the kennel she must have realised what happened, that she was not going back home. She got depressed and for days she was just sitting in the corner of the kennel, not eating, not moving and snapping at whoever comes close to her.

Days passed and she slowly came out of her shell. She is now very attached to the people that work in the shelter, that she sees every day. They can do anything to her. She follows them like a shadow. She likes to be petted and she loves playing ball. She also likes their children, they can hug her and squeeze her and she does not mind. But the people she does not know – she keeps her distance.
On the other hand, she really likes children. Children that come to the shelter pet her, hug her, squeeze her and she seems ok with it. She seems to like children more than adults.

Snow: long journey, hopefully with happy end one day

Information:

Name: Snow

Gender: M

Breed: x Husky

Age: d-o-b: ~2015

Size: medium (17kg, 50cm)

Others: dewormed, vaccinated, castrated

Story:
Two foreigners on holidays found a skinny wounded dog in the middle of nowhere in northern Portugal. They brought him to the area of Lisbon and looked for help before they flew home. First he was taken in by a municipal kennel and then we took him in.
Snow was very skinny and dirty. Very neglected. Since then he got a bath and he looks much better. He was eating wit appetite and he put on weight, the difference is undeniable.
He also had a wound on his neck that indicated that he was for a long time on a chain. The wound is healing nicely.
Also, we think Snow does not hear very well.

Snow is very gentle and he wants to trust. He licks our hands when we come to him. But also he is a dog that never experienced any kindess. On the contrary, when we touch him too quickly, he gets worried, he must have ben beaten. It will take time for him to gain confidence but he will because we can see that he really wants to trust us.
He is VERY gentle and he is good with other dogs.
