TOBY

MIXED BREED,  FEMALE

This poor little guy was found wandering on the road near a restaurant and taken home by a local lady. She couldn’t look after him though because she has her own large dog who is very jealous. After a bit of miscommunication, we went to collect him from the local municipal pound. He is a real cute little dog, very social and people orientated and must surely have been born in someone’s home or back yard. We expect him to grow to a small-medium size. Estimated date of birth is April 1, 2019.

BONNIE

MIXED BREED,  FEMALE

When females with no owner start getting fed by everyone and anyone around popular supermarkets,  the results can be easily fore spelled. They get pregnant and have pups somewhere where those lovely people who feed them cannot find them nor catch them. As a consequence of this negligent strategy, there are 13 more pups on our website for adoption that should never have been born were the mother dogs “caught” by the competent authorities instead of just left on the street.

Nine of these pups are female! Imagine we had not caught them. If each female had, on first heat, say 8 pups, that comes to 72 pups. No further comment is needed.

Pups were already 10 weeks when captured. With lots of TLC and special attention from a foster mother who comes here every day, bless her, the pups are making good social progress and will be ready for adoption after all the necessary vaccinations.

We need to find them all homes and get the females spayed at the correct time so these will not go on to produce more unwanted offspring.

This is Bonnie, born on 4 March 2019, and we expect that she will be a small medium.

CIGANO

MIXED BREED,  MALE

Cigano, Portuguese for gypsy, weighs 22 kg and is now about 5 years old, born in 2013, and was rescued from a gypsy camp just over a year ago. And the "rescuer" dumped him at our vet and then disappeared from the world. That was in September 2017 and since that date Cigano "lives" in a 60 by 80 cm crate between sick and operated dogs in the vet's clinic. And yes, a few times a day he can go out and stretch his legs in the courtyard. Cigano had not an easy life and that is why he first looks at you whether you can be trusted, but when you are approved he approaches you very enthusiastically. He is also special because he is Leishmania positive and has a food allergy which means he has to get special dry food. But that must not be a reason not to adopt him. We therefore seek for him an adopter who can give him the time, love and attention he deserves and who "saves" him from the little jail he was condemned by his previous savior. Cigano is good with other dogs, with people and children, but not with cats.

JOSEFINA

RAFEIRO ALENTEJANO,  FEMALE

Last summer Josefina’s owner died suddenly from a tragic fall. Her husband, in a wheelchair most of the time, was taken back to his native Scotland by his children. Their other three dogs, Podengos, were able to travel to Scotland to live with members of the family. 

We agreed to take in Josefina. She was overweight but has lost quite a few kg now and is more active than she was. She is an Alpha type and is not very keen on other females who she regards as competition. Males are better if she likes them and vice versa. With people she is very affectionate and loves attention. She will climb on your lap, sit for a treat and give you a paw, and even go after a toy that she takes away to her bed in her kennel. She sleeps all night in an inside kennel and roams free in the garden some of the time.

She has been with us too long for such a lovely dog and needs a home of her own. She is born in August 2015.

DEXTER

PODENGO, MALE

DEXTER is a small/medium cross Podengo born in April 2012 and weighs about 14kg. He was found abandoned in the Algarve hills by campers and lived in a caravan until they went back to their own country.
He was then dumped in a shelter for more than a year until we agreed to take him in. Due to his background, he never got a bond with people and was very insecure. He focused 100% on his nose and what it was telling him rather than on the people and other dogs around him. He spent a lot of energy with searching for all kinds of "moving" things in the trees, in the bushes and between the rocks and gravel and cats. We don't think he could live with a cat but you never know.
For the past couple of months he has been going to special training classes for concentration, nose work and a bit of agility. He is doing very well and loves to work for the trainer. At last, he has something specific and rewarding to do with his nose.
Dexter needs a family that would continue the training as a hobby and exercise for everyone concerned. He is affectionate, great fun and loves treats. He walks very well on a lead and is fine with other dogs.

FLASH

MIXED BREED FEMALE

FLASH and her 3 pups were spotted wandering in the middle of the main road that goes from Alportel to Almodovar. It is a long windy road through hills and desolate terrain with few houses along the highway. Not a good place for mum and pups of 6 weeks old. A friend called us and Ad went to pick them up having no other alternative so quickly.

Mum is very friendly with people and a good mum for her children.
Flash is medium size, +/- 20 kg and 50 cm. We believe she was born in July 2013.

Update 19-7-2016. Flash has now been here for more than one year! Her pups are extraordinary dogs, one now being trained as an assistance dog for diabetes and one being trained as a sniffer dog for rescue. BUT Flash just runs around the dog run and still has no home. She is a lovely, gentle dog and will thrive in a home of her own. Very affectionate and people orientated, eager to please. Gets on with other dogs but probably not cats in an outside environment.
