Dog of the Week 6 - Gás

A very beautiful Lady named Gás is the Dog of the Week this time. You may wonder about the name we gave her, and you’re right. Gás in Portuguese means quite the same as in English, gas, but the bottled one (not gasoline) for domestic and industrial use, like butane or propane. She came from a warehouse of that kind of gas, and they asked us if we could sterilize her because she was pregnant. At that time we had a sterilize campaign going on and so it was done. After that, we felt pity about her and kept her because that warehouse didn’t offer the best conditions for dogs, and beyond that, she was already the second dog coming to us from that place.
This was 2 years ago and today she’s still in our kennel. Many volunteers wonder why she is so shy, so slow and lethargic. They took her to a vet and nothing was found. My guess is that she’s bored and maybe a little depressed, because every time I play with her she transforms herself! Then she turns out to be a very intelligent and kind dog, but of course, we don’t have much time for each and every one of the over 110 dogs we got in our custody.
Does anyone of you want to help her getting out of this mood? We think she’s about 6 or 7 years old and really has to find a new family.

Dog of the Week 5 - Maxi

This weekend I present you Maxi. On the contrary you might think, it’s a little doggie, but maxi at all the rest! Very sociable, very good with other dogs and very beautiful as you can see on this small video.

He was found by me a view week ago nearby my office. Many dogs are passing by this place, and first I thought it’s just one more ... but no, he appeared again for several days, first only at night, then most time of the day. I started to give him food to gain his confidence and then he let me take him with me.
Today he appears to be one of the nicest dogs who ever passed by our kennel. I hope it’s just really a ‘passing by thing’, he must find a new home, he deserves it.
