Vanda: why get a dog and then neglect it?

Information:

Name: Vanda

Gender: F

Age: d-o-b: January 2015

Breed: pointer

Size: medium-big (20kg, 50cm)

Others: dewormed, vaccinated, castrated

Story:
A guy went to a municipal pound and adopted two dogs, father and daughter. On a whim it seems. As only 6 months later he did not want the dogs anymore. Because anyone can go to a municipal kennel and they give a dog no questions asked.
A few months later the dogs were neglected, irregularly fed and never had any attention from their owner.
A neighbor started feeding them as otherwise there would be no food. Finally that neighbiour convinced the guy to give the dogs to the shelter. Maybe they can be adopted by someone who wants them! Someone who will care about them!
Vagabundo and Vanda, father and daughter, very gentle, very calm, really sweet. They have to be adopted togehter as they are very attached to each other. They are lovely. Very nice dogs.

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, sterilised

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.
