Mel: heartbreaking!

Information:

Names: Mel

Gender: F

Breed: Portuguese podengo

Age: d-o-b: ~2010

Size: small (7kg, 40cm)

Others: dewormed, vaccinated, sterilised

Story, Personality, Others:
The story of Mel makes you cry. She was abandoned and living on the street. Some people fed her and some people chased her. One day she was hit by a car. Municipal pound was called, they took her with, she was limping, an Xray was done and nothing was broken. So she was put in a cage there, where she stayed for a year. People don´t easily adopt old dogs but also no one knew that sweet Mel was there… Municipal kennels don´t do promotion of dogs, those are places where dogs are forgotten. Mel lost a year of her life. Now let´s hope what she has left she can spend in a home.
Mel is very sweet and extremely gentle, no one gets any gentler than that. Absolute sweetie.
She was very dirty when she came, she got a bath (some photos are after the bath if you look) and she was very patient.
She is good with other dogs.
She walks on the leash but slowly. One leg is weaker, it must have been damaged when she was hit by a car but as it was a year ago and nothing was done then, it is too late to fix it now. She is not in pain, she just limps. See on the video.

Polo: he is a dog of one owner

Information:

Name: Polo

Gender: M

Breed: spitz

Age: d-o-b: January 2008

Size: small (6kg, 35cm)

Others: dewormed, vaccinated, castrated

Story, Personality, Others:
Polo´s owner went to a “home” and she could not take him with. She had no one, so no one wanted the dog. She left him in the shelter. He lived with his owner since he was a puppy. A calm life, where it was just him and her.
He got adopted by another old lady. He got very attached to her quickly. She could do anything with him, but he thought he had to defend her so he barked and snapped at her daughters when they were visiting. So the daughters said they would not visit the mother anymore if she kept the dog. So she returned him to the shelter.
Poor Polo. He meant well. He is gentle, sweet and he just wants to be loved. He is good with other dogs. Good on the leash. Used to living in a home.

Wiliam: an old dog needs a loving home

Information:

Names: Wiliam

Gender: M

Breed: Portuguese podengo

Age: d-o-b: ~2011

Size: small (9kg, 35cm)

Others: dewormed, vaccinated

Story, Personality, Others:
Wiliam was found on the street. It is very sad to find an old dog abandoned… He would not survive on the street. He was taken to safety and at least now in the shelter he has food and is not exposed to sun and rain but such a sweet dog should have a home… In the period of their lives when the dogs are most fragile, they need us. Wiliam should have a comfortable bed and a loving family, not be in the shelter.
Wiliam is a very sweet dog. He loves people, he is attentive and obedient. He walks well on the leash. He is good with other dogs. Very gentle.
