Bamse: many many years on the chain

Information:

Name: Bamse

Gender: M

Age: d-o-b: ~2006

Size: big (40kg, 60cm)

Others: dewormed, vaccinated

Story:
Bamse (and his companion Bozo) was brought by his owner who sold his farm and of course thought dumping his dogs in the shelter was the solution.
He appeared at the gate of the shelter and you should see the chain that Bamse was carrying. A very heavy chain… He had that weighing on his neck since he was a puppy for 11 years. He has never been loose. What a sad life. What cruelty – that here is not considered cruelty.
And now he was brought to shelter but he is old so no one will adopt him. He was brought to die. His life was considered worthless. He will spend the rest of his time in a kennel and will die there, one day or night, alone.
The only good thing is that he can finally roam in the little space he has without this terrible weight on his neck. We have actually seen him playing with his companion. Such an old dog but he still wants to play. He actually seems happy with the change of circumstances.
And he is very gentle. Probably he was not much of a guard dog. He is big so he must have been making an impression. But not more. As he is super gentle.

Leao: what if your dog overlives you?

Information:

Name: Leao

Gender: M

Age: d-o-b: ~2006

Size: medium-big (25kg, 55cm)

Others: dewormed, vaccinated

Story:
Leao’s owner died. He was brought to the shelter by the children. They are not keeping him.
Poor Leao… he must have been well treated. He is a happy dog, social with people and other dogs, super friendly and in very good health for his age. He came accompanied by a book of vaccinations, he was vaccinated every year.
But now that his owner is gone, no one cares about him….
A shelter is not a place for an old dog. Once he understand what has happened he will fade away…. Old dogs who lost their owners and are brought to the shelter quickly loose their will to live. Unless someone takes him home. Which we hope for….
