Luna: old, skinny, hungry, abandoned

Information:

Name: Luna

Gender: F

Breed: Perdigueiro (Portuguese pointer)

Age: d-o-b: ~2008

Size: medium (18kg, 50cm)

Others: dewormed, vaccinated

Story:
Luna, when she came to us, was very skinny. She must have been long on the street, scavenging for food. She was caught by someone when trying to get into a hen house. She was starving….. This person brought her to the shelter (and she actually wanted to exchange her for a puppy, but we just took in Luna and we did not give the puppy – it was going to be a guard dog leading miserable life).
Poor Luna was tired, exhausted and very hungry. But at the same time very sweet and very gentle… She is another old dog that will stay in the shelter for the rest of her life… It is better than on the street but it is not a home. Old dogs need home and special affection. Not many people want to adopt old dogs though… And she is sooo loving. Just look at the movies.

Betty: the neglect she has been through… and she still loves people.

Information:

Name: Betty

Gender: F

Age: d-o-b: ~2012

Breed: pointer

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

Others: dewormed, vaccinated

Story:
Betty was removed by the police from camp inhabited by a certain group of people belonging to a certain ethnicity. She was kept in a whole in the ground covered with plastic so she would not roam around. She was being used to breed – as she is a pointer x, she was having puppies with every season and her puppies were being sold to the hunters. She was years on it.
Moreover, her leg was broken ages ago and it was not treated so it grew badly. She limps. But it is too old and there is nothing to be done to correct it anymore. At least it does not bother her, she is not in pain and she actually runs and plays and acts like a dog with 4 healthy legs.
Fortunately at some point the police acted upon a complaint and freed the dog from the hell hole she was living in.
She was brought to the shelter and we were surprised finding our how gentle and affectionate she was. She is lovely with people, very friendly, very gentle and super nice with other dogs.
