Hope: her name must have helped!

Information:

Name: Hope

Gender: F

Age: November 2017

Size: small (5kg, 40cm)

Others: dewormed, vaccinated

Story, Personality, Others:
Hope was found abandoned. She was found in a paper box behind a supermarket. Just off the parking. Someone went to get the car, saw the box on a grass field, heard crying. She was there, with two broken legs. There were casts on both legs – this means that someone went with her to the vet and abandoned the dog with two broken legs and cast on them. How is that possible? She was not able to walk, if someone had not spotted her in this box in the grass field, she would have died of thirst and hunger!
The person that found her brought her to the shelter. We had her taken to the vet. She was operated. And then they put two external iron fixtures on her legs and she had them for 6 weeks. They were removed recently. You would not even notice if you did not know – she runs and jumps and plays as if she had never had anything.
Hope is lovely. She is super nice with people and other dogs. She is friendly, cuddly, happy, gentle. A wonderful little girl that managed to overcome the bad things that happened to her.

Liselotte: lovely podenga

Information:

Name: Liselotte

Gender: F

Age: D-o-b ~2014

Breed: Portuguese podengo

Size: medium (12kg, 40cm)

Others: dewormed, vaccinated, sterilised

Story, Personality, Others:
Four sisters were brought to us from a hunter/hoarder who kept his dogs in horrible conditions.
The plight of podengos in Portugal is equal to the plight of galgos in Spain, only less mediatic. When they serve for hunting they are kept in small cages with minimum or no food and transported in masses in trailers behind the cars for their master’s amusement (hunting). When they don’t serve anymore they are abandoned or killed.
If given a chance they make wonderful pets… They are gentle, social, friendly. they get along beautifully with other dogs.

Fours girls came to us rescued from one of those places. We guess they don’t serve for hunting anymore otherwise the hunter would not surrender them so easily. They came to us skinny and scared but they are slowly gaining confidence. They are gentle, friendly and gaining trust. They wag their tails when we approach and they play with each other and other dogs. Such nice girls.

Liselotte is lovely and gentle.
