Estrela: it is easier to give the dog to the shelter than raise the fence/ reserved

Information:

Name: Estrela

Gender: F

Breed: serra da estrela

Age: d-o-b: 13 November 2017

Size: big (35kg, 60cm)

Others: dewormed, vaccinated, sterilised

Story:
People got themselves a serra de estrela puppy. She resulted to be a lovely and social dog that wanted to be with people but her owners wanted to have her only in the garden. She grew. She was not a puppy anymore. So she started to jump the low wall and go for a walk to look for company. So they put her on the chain. Raising a wall would be better but more work. She did not like to be on the chain so she barked. The neighbours complained. Again, raising the wall and giving the dog more attention would solve the problem. But leaving her in the shelter was easier.
Estrela is a lovely dog, friendly and gentle although shy at the first encounter. Especially that the shelter can intimidate the dogs not used to this environment. But we are sure she will gain confidence. For a change she needs a good home.
