Cloë, German Shepherd ADOPTED

Update: Clöe is adopted in Spain.
Cloë is probably just over one year old. As many other dogs, she was tied up at the perrera on 24 Nov 2008 by people unknown, so we don't know anything about her past. She is slightly lower (50-55 cm) than other German shepherds, she is not too fat at all, her hair is not long, rather short and she weights 23 kg. She is sterilised (15 Dec 2008).
She is used to people but is a little skittish and afraid of brooms - she must have been beaten before. On the other hand she is very investigative and incredibly active. She is in a fosterhome now and the whippet only just managed to wear her out running. She gets on well with the other dogs, she can be slightly dominant towards females but if there is sufficient space to run around there are no problems at all.
She has not been educated but she does come when she is called and joins the walks with the other dogs from day one without taking off on her own. She likes playing with a ball but what she enjoys most at the moment is just running around and inviting other dogs to do the same. She has only been with us for three days so there will be more to tell about her.

Chico, a boxer mix - ADOPTED April 2009

Update: Chico is adopted in Spain (Aviles)
Chico is a young dog with a very expressive face - just like his character. He wants to participate, is enthousiastic, can be a good leader if there are several dogs. He absolutely adores people who will have to guide him to channel all his energy as he is very intelligent and does not easily give up.

He loves to play and is good with children.

He is no good with cats, but on the other hand he is very reliable around horses and donkeys.

He knows how to walk on the lead, enjoys travelling by car and knows several basic commands.

Chico is about 50-55 cm, what we call medium-sized, much smaller than a German Shepherd. He is castrated, chipped, vaccinated and ready to find a a new home with someone to love him.

Aisha - setter mix ADOPTED March 2009

Aisha is a dog who gets on extremely well with all the other dogs and with people. She is not afraid, she is independent but also loves attention. She has even learnt to get on with the cats! She is not a barker, only when she gets excited just before the daily walk in her fosterhome.

She is aprox 3 years old, shoulderheight about 50 cm. Medium sized. The ideal companion for older or younger people. She is obedient, will not leave your side which is admirable for a hunting dog.

Aika - the lovely terrier girl found a home

Aika is a small foxterrier, very young and probably pure as she has a cut tail. She was found somewhere in the woods, where she was found and taken home - but the problem was that lovely Aika also loved chicken, as a real terrier and she was dumped at the small perrera in Infiesto.

Name: Aika
Breed: Foxterrier (cut tail)
Sex: F (sterilised 14/8/08)
Age: 1-2 years
Size: aprox 35 cm
Weight: 6 kg
Entry: 12/8/2008

Character: loving and dependent on people, open to new people - in that respect not terrier-like. She does like to hunt birds (chickens ;) - cats are incredibly interesting (there are about 10 in her foster home) but they are al most as big as she is. She is not used to them yet though. She is house-trained and obedient but a very very active little dog.

Aika was adopted in Germany (September 2008)
