Amado: the biggest dog in the shelter!

Information:

Name: Amado

Gender: M

Breed: x rafeiro alentejano

Age: d-o-b: ~2013

Size: big (74kg, 65cm)

Others: dewormed, vaccinated

Story:
Amado was found on the street some time ago and taken to a municipal pound. The pounds now don’t euthanize the dogs but they have no other plans for them either (like rehoming or neutering) apart from accumulating. They are life time deposit for dogs that would be wonderful pets.
This one keeps dogs in small kennels, they never go out and even when the kennels are washed, this is done with the hose and the dog inside.
Amado is 74 kg. Given his size, the kennel was too small for him. He spent over a year in a cage that was barely his size. As the public access to the pounds is rather restricted those things go on for long without anyone protesting.
Any dog would go mad. But due to his wonderful mellow temperament he stayed like he is – gentle, friendly, calm. Simply waiting patiently for his life to change. And finally it did, he was brought to us.
We absolutely love him. A gentle teddy bear, nice with people, nice with all dogs, always wagging his tail. Now we hope he will find a home because he absolutely deserves.
