Mel: heartbreaking!

Information:

Names: Mel

Gender: F

Breed: Portuguese podengo

Age: d-o-b: ~2010

Size: small (7kg, 40cm)

Others: dewormed, vaccinated, sterilised

Story, Personality, Others:
The story of Mel makes you cry. She was abandoned and living on the street. Some people fed her and some people chased her. One day she was hit by a car. Municipal pound was called, they took her with, she was limping, an Xray was done and nothing was broken. So she was put in a cage there, where she stayed for a year. People don´t easily adopt old dogs but also no one knew that sweet Mel was there… Municipal kennels don´t do promotion of dogs, those are places where dogs are forgotten. Mel lost a year of her life. Now let´s hope what she has left she can spend in a home.
Mel is very sweet and extremely gentle, no one gets any gentler than that. Absolute sweetie.
She was very dirty when she came, she got a bath (some photos are after the bath if you look) and she was very patient.
She is good with other dogs.
She walks on the leash but slowly. One leg is weaker, it must have been damaged when she was hit by a car but as it was a year ago and nothing was done then, it is too late to fix it now. She is not in pain, she just limps. See on the video.

Kiko: nervous but loving

Information:

Names: Kiko

Gender: M

Breed: x Portuguese podengo

Age: d-o-b: ~2014

Size: medium (14kg, 45cm)

Others: dewormed, vaccinated, castrated

Story, Personality, Others:
Little Kiko was surrendered by his owner. She said that the dog was very attached to her but did not like her husband and son and the situation at home was difficult.
She also said that he did not like to get groomed, this is why he always looked messy.
What we see is a nervous but affectionate dog. His first day in the shelter was very difficult for him, he was just trembling like a leaf. After a few days he gained confidence but is still quite nervous. On the other hand we find him very loving, he enjoys attention, he asks for cuddling, he likes human contact.
He is good with other dogs.
He is used to living in a home. He needs another chance… Someone who will be patient with him and will understand his fears.

Wiliam: an old dog needs a loving home

Information:

Names: Wiliam

Gender: M

Breed: Portuguese podengo

Age: d-o-b: ~2011

Size: small (9kg, 35cm)

Others: dewormed, vaccinated

Story, Personality, Others:
Wiliam was found on the street. It is very sad to find an old dog abandoned… He would not survive on the street. He was taken to safety and at least now in the shelter he has food and is not exposed to sun and rain but such a sweet dog should have a home… In the period of their lives when the dogs are most fragile, they need us. Wiliam should have a comfortable bed and a loving family, not be in the shelter.
Wiliam is a very sweet dog. He loves people, he is attentive and obedient. He walks well on the leash. He is good with other dogs. Very gentle.
