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.

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….

Rossi’s owner died. A year ago. His son does not live there. He lives somewhere else. He paid the neighbour to take care of the dog. The dog stayed in the ex-owner’s apartment. For a year. The neighbour was coming to give food, water, clean. Not to walk. The dog stayed there for 1 year. Without going out, without human contact – just 10 minutes per day with one person.
Finally another neighbour found out and convinced all persons involved to bring Rossi to the shelter.
It is heart-breaking. Especially that the dog was undoubtedly loved by his owner. We often get dogs of people that died, they usually have no vaccinations, no chip, not neutered, never been to a vet. We cannot help thinking that the dog is actually lucky by coming to us, that his life can only get better.
Not in this case. Rossi had a full book of vaccinations, every year he was vaccinated and checked by the vet, including profilactical blood tests. He was neutered and chipped. His owner cared very much about him and certainly he does not rest in peace.
And imagine Rossi’s anguish…. One day the person that loved him disappears from his life… and for a year he stays alone, day by day, alone 23 hours and 50 minutes per day in a small apartment.
Rossi is such a sweet dog. It is heart-breaking to think about the year of solitude he endured. A year of his life wasted. He is so nice, so gentle, so affectionate. When you pet him on his head he stops and closes the eyes. Long time since anyone cuddled him.
He is now learning again how to live. He likes going outside. He wants to smell everything. He walks well on the leash.
He is friendly with dogs.
Rossi deserves a loving home. He is a wonderful dog that endured what he did not deserve. We hope someone now will offer him a loving home.
