Story:
Flossy’s owner went to a “home” and he left her behind in the house he was renting in the yard. We know she was not well cared for anyway.
It is amazing that such a neglected dog is so loving.
Flossy just loves people, she is very gentle, cuddly and affectionate.
She is always in good mood. Her tail never stops wagging.
She is good on the leash.
She is friendly with other dogs and with cats.
A wonderful dog. She deserves still to have a home, not spend her last years in the shelter. She deserves to be loved.

Bubo: his owner died and noone wants him

Information:

Name: Bubo

Gender: M

Breed: poodle

Age: d-o-b: 21 August 2008

Size: small (8kg, 40cm)

Others: dewormed, vaccinated

Story:
Bubo’s owner died and the family brought the dog to the shelter.
Bubo, when he was brought to the shelter, he was very neglected. He was skinny, dirty and ridden with fleas. He developed a flea allergy and all his fur on the back was missing, he was basically nude. But he is much better now, he got a bath and a product against fleas and the fur is growing back.

We know that one day someone cared for Bubo. He had a book of vaccinations filled with vaccinations and he has been followed by a vet. His owner cared of him. Only when he died, the family members started to neglect him.
Bubo is old and it is heart breaking that he was discarded like a piece of garbage and sent to die in the shelter.

Bubo is used to living in a home. He lived with his owner in an apartment. He walks well on the leash and he really enjoys walking. He wags his tail and when he walks he seems to have energy of a much younger dog.

He was adopted a few days after being brought to the shelter but given back after less than 24 hours. In such a short time he got attached to his new owner, he asked for cuddles, he wanted to be on the lap but… he growled at the resident dog. He never lived with another dog. Even if in the shelter he does not pay attention to other dogs, in a home he wanted to have “his human” all to himself. We believe with time and education this could be sorted but ideal would be indeed to find a home for him without other dogs.

Bubo takes heart medication but it is normal for a dog of his age: Cardisure and Enalapril 2,5mg twice a day.
