I told you about Sofia in March, when she was also taken to the shelter directly from the vet's office. Good people found her. They realised something was wrong with her when they saw that she wasn't reacting to external stimuli. It was assumed that she had been hit by a car, but radiological examinations revealed that she had nothing broken or dislocated, but was rather showing tenderness in her front limbs (the cause of which was not identified). After months of bouncing around like a kangaroo and dozens of treatments, she has started to make noticeable progress. Currently, the puppy is walking quite well (not running like a marathon, but getting around using all 4 of her 4 legs).
We believe she is ready to leave for a new family that knows her problem, but accepts her as she is, imperfect. About Sofia we say the following:
She is a female, about 2 years old, of small size (~35cm).
It is a gentle dog, oriented towards interactions with people, with children.
Not as friendly with other puppies, she tends to dominate them and put herself in the spotlight. We recommend her to a family that has no other puppies.
It's suitable for block living, but also for backyard living, but it's out of the question to keep it chained!
She is fully dewormed and vaccinated, not yet spayed. She will be spayed free of charge if adopted.
Share Sofia's album and help her become popular, maybe she'll get lucky!
Help with Food or Veterinary Services
If you would like to adopt a dog from our shelter, we first invite you to fill out the following questionnaire.
It only takes 2 minutes!
What is the purpose of the questionnaire? Why do I need to complete it?
The questionnaire is the first step to adoption and the way we try to get to know you and make sure our fur babies end up in loving and, above all, responsible families (NOTE: We do not consider monotonous answers such as ''Yes'' or ''No'').
Please read carefully some of the obligations to which you are committed as an adopter:
Your contact details as stated in the adoption contract (name, surname, age, telephone number and address where you want the adopted animal to live).
- To ensure that the animal donated by us has a decent, stress-free life, which means: unlimited food and water, a comfortable place to sleep, freedom of movement, the possibility to show his (dog) traits in peace.
- Provide qualified veterinary treatment in case of injury or illness.
- Ensure monthly deworming and annual vaccinations.
- Do NOT bully, do NOT mistreat, do NOT punish the animal. In case of behavioural problems, you must contact our association or a qualified trainer.
- Do NOT under any circumstances abandon the animal if you realise it does not meet your standards.
- Do NOT dispose of the animal unless you notify the donor, i.e. our association, in advance and this will ONLY be done with our consent.
- Notify the association if you change the animal's residence and if you change your contact details - telephone number so that we can keep in touch with you.
- Arrange for sterilisation of the animal at the appropriate age if this has not already been done by our association.
- Notify the association within 24 hours in case of loss or death of the adopted animal.
- Return the pet to the association if you can NO LONGER afford to care for it, if you move and cannot take it with you, if you do not relate well to it, if it is not compatible with your family and/or if you are not happy with it.
- Allow the association to visit the animal, with prior notice, at the request of the association in order to check the conditions provided to the adopted animal and its condition.
- In the event of non-compliance with the provisions and obligations stipulated both in this questionnaire and in the adoption contract subsequently signed by the adopter, our association reserves the right to confiscate the donated animal.
- Thank you for taking the time to go through our questionnaire!
