BAILEY

MIXED BREED,  MALE

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 Bailey, born on 4 March 2019, and we expect that he will be medium.

BAYLEY

MIXED BREED,  FEMALE

Bayley was born on 10 November 2018.

They were found in the morning and taken to the shelter where they received more love in one day than in the 4 weeks before. Bayley is a very social pup and is taken out by the volonteers for a walk every day. We expect that she will become a medium sized dog when adult.

BERTIE

MIXED BREED,  MALE

Look at this lovely little fella! Somehow he turned up at a friend’s garden gate looking very thin and sad. How he got there, nobody knows. After a few days of him sitting at the gate asking to come in, they opened it! He was so hungry he nearly choked himself eating. Bertie is extremely friendly with people, other dogs and also cats. There are cats everywhere in that house and garden but he ignores them completely. All he wants is a soft sofa to lie on and be cuddled. Bertie’s estimated date of birth is around Oct/Nov 2017 and he now weighs 12kg. He is house trained and sleeps in his basket at night. Doesn’t need a crate as he doesn’t destroy anything at all, says his foster mum. Who will give Bertie the loving home he deserves.?? Chipped, vaccinated, castrated and tested negative for all blood parasites.

BUDDY

MIXED BREED,  MALE

Buddy, probably born around April 21, 2018, was found far away from any home by a family with young children. It was so far from the civilized world, that it can not be otherwise that he has been taken there and deliberately left behind. They took him home because he was so sweet. But the family has more animals and not much room for this active boy. He is still with the family at the moment because the family does not want to take him to the shelter. Buddy is very social towards people and other dogs and with cats he is OK. He walks well on the leash, is fine in the car, learns quickly and is actually everything you want from such a young dog. But now he is looking for his own house and his own family where he can stay for the rest of his life.

The cats of the house also teach her how to deal with cats. Cookie lives up to her name, she eats like a wolf and grows and grows. Cookie will become a very big girl, who needs a lot of space. Who can give her that space?

DELILAH

MIXED BREED,  FEMALE

Delilah was born around 10 September 2018 and when she was about 2 months old she was found at the bottom of the escalator which goes to the Continente supermarket. We think she came from the gypsy camp next door and that she followed a gypsy woman when she went shopping. But going upstairs with the escalator was a bit too much for her. And so she ended up in our shelter. Delilah is a very social and adventurous pup and walks already very well on the leash. At an age of 10 weeks she weighed 4.6 kg and she is expected to be a medium size dog when she is adult. Now she is looking forward to a family of her own who she can join when some shopping needs to be done.

We do not know anything about her background and what she has gone through and fortunately she does not know that either, because Diana is a dog without problems, good with people and all dogs. She is just a nice happy dog, who enjoys life and that's why we look for a home and a family of her own. Diana currently weighs about 19 kg and is 50 cm high.

DORY

MIXED BREED,  FEMALE

We dont know much about Dory except that she is a very happy dog in spite of her past and always wags her tail and wants to play. She was brought to our vet by a lady who explained that this dog was mistreated, malnourished, full of ticks and fleas etc etc and that she had rescued it from some nasty people.

After treating her there, the vet asked us to take her in and put her for adoption. Dory is about 5 months old (born 14 November 2018) and very energetic. Loves to play with other dogs and a ball or other toys. Needs a family, possibly with children to play with or another dog.  Anyway, a home with lots of time to spend on Dory.

We think she will be a great family pet. Size will be small-medium. At the moment she weighs 7.5 kg.

MIXED BREED,  FEMALE

Emma and her mother were living on waste ground among homeless people. If you have no home and no money, how can you take care of stray dogs?

Dogs were undernourished and left to do their own thing, not far from a busy main road where some of the pups had already been killed. A dog rescuer took them away and brought them to the shelter where the mother was immediately sterilised so no more pups. Emma is a very independent puppy, playful and feisty. Will be a small-medium adult dog. Loves people, lots of attention and already walks on a lead. Estimated DoB, 10 December 2018.

JULIETA

MIXED BREED,  FEMALE

Julieta was brought to the shelter as a puppy, simply because nobody wanted her. And why? Because it is a bitch. And that is enough to throw them away in the garbage container. But when they are 4 months old that is of course no longer possible. Then dumping in an shelter is still the most humane solution. Julieta has been living in the shelter for a few months now, she is a very social and playful dog and that's why we think she should leave and get her own house with people who love her. At least when they promise never to dump her again.
Julieta was born in March 2018 and now weighs just under 20 kg at 8 months. She has been sterilized already.

Kazzy, as she is now called, had no luggage and is currently looking for her new home. She was born around 15 February 2019 and is very social with people and other nice dogs and will be a small adult doggy. With 11 weeks of age, she weighs only 2,3 kg.

Lone Ranger was found in a field together with his brother. So at that time he was not alone. The pups were being chased and driven away by a man with a stick.

MOLLY

MIXED BREED,  FEMALE

Molly and her brother were dumped in a garden of a holiday villa last summer. They were very small pups and the holidaymakers had no idea what to do. They managed to locate a local rescue group who took in the pups and the little male was homed fairly quickly. It was soon obvious that little Molly had a problem with her right, back leg so Molly left the shelter and went into a foster family. She was taken to our orthopaedic vet and x-rays showed she had a dislocated femur, the head of which was damaged so it couldn’t stay in the socket. A kind of hip dysplasia. 
This is awful for such a young dog and we think it could have come from being lifted up by the one leg and shaken about. We have seen many times a (gypsy) child handle pups like this, oh yes, and have a good giggle about a screeching pup. Many people here still think animals have no nervous system so cannot feel pain. Animals are “goods” and not living creatures with feelings.
Molly was operated on twice and has had several other rehab treatments. She was born around 15 June 2018 and we think she can go for adoption to a QUIET family who will take into consideration her slight handicap. She walks well on lead but cannot run or jump a lot for the time being until the vet says it’s 100% ok to do so. As she is so young, everything is still growing but being so young is also an advantage for the healing process. She is very social with other dogs and cats and will be a small-medium adult. She weighs 16kg now. (March 2019) so wont grow much more.

OLIVIA

MIXED BREED,  FEMALE

Olivia was born around July 5, 2018, and when she was only 4 months old, they had enough of her. Olivia was found tied to the door handle of a veterinary clinic. And so she ended up in the shelter. At an age of 5 months she weighs 13.4 kg and she is still growing. Olivia is very social and walks well on the leash. An shelter is not a good place for a puppy and that is why we are looking for a loving and caring adopter who has to promise us never to tie Olivia to a door handle and then run away.

PICOLINA

MIXED BREED,  FEMALE

Picolina is a small bitch of about 2 years old (born February 2017) and was given to us because she was pregnant again. She lived always in the house of a single Portuguese man and his demented father, who could not take good care of her either. Picolina is just a lovely dog, who after one day already felt at home and wants nothing more than to be cuddled. But we really do not have time for that, because we already have too many dogs we have to pay attention to.
Picolina weighs only 5.6 kg and is 22 cm high. That is why we are now looking for a loving family who still have a very small place in their house and their hearts for this little treasure, who will return her thanks and love a hundredfold from day one.

Pomme and his brothers came to us when they were 8 weeks old and they are developing into extraordinary social pups. We expect Pomme to become a large medium sized dog.

POOCH

MIXED BREED,  FEMALE

Pooch was born on November 20, 2018 because Rui did not notice that the mother dog was heavily pregnant. And when 10 pups were born, it became too much for Rui and we were approached with the question if we could help him. And yes we will do that, including the sterilization of the mother dog. The mother dog is a black labrador type, not pure but with the typical labrador characteristics, father is unknown of course. Pooch and her sisters came to us when they were 5 weeks old and they are developing into extraordinary social pups. We expect Pooch to become a large medium sized dog.

QUICK

MIXED BREED,  MALE

Quick, born around October 20, 2018, really wants to learn and so he went to the playground of a primary school in our village. He walked around there among all children running and playing, but when the children went back to their classroom, he was left alone. As he apparently belonged to nobody and neither of the children had seen him before, one of the teachers took him home. But he can no longer stay there, because the teacher is too much away from home. We are therefore looking for a very friendly family for this very agile and active pup, preferably with school-age children, so that he can go to school every now and then. Quick is very social, walks already well on the leash and is very eager to learn.

RAFERTY

Raferty and his brother Ronan were dumped at the shelter together with their mum because they were unwanted. Born in a house on March 1, 2019, he certainly had a good start in life. Now he is in foster and he is very social towards people and other dogs. At the age of 9 weeks he weighs almost 5 kg and therefor we expect him to be bigger than his mother who is only 8,5 kg.

SAMMY

MIXED BREED,  MALE

SAMMY, so I called him when he arrived 3 days ago with a gammy leg and a muzzle on his lovely, sad face. He may have a lovely face but the rest of him is certainly not lovely. Sammy was a young male, 18kg, mixed breed, seen walking the streets of S.Bras for ages and fed scraps by locals.
Well, it probably were the scraps that kept him alive these past few months and he must be a tough little guy. He has a fractured right hind leg at the tarsal/metatarsal joint and a huge hole on the inside of that area as well as several small wounds, many fleas and ticks..well you all know how street dogs look. Yet nobody thought to pick up this dog until 3 days ago when he could hardly stand upright any more. He was taken to a "petshop vet" where he was assessed and the verdict was: give him some antibiotics and painkillers for 10 days and then put him back on the street where he came from!!!
Well, I have met many vets in my life but this one must take the biscuit with chocolate trimmings.
This is where we came onto the scene. I was asked if I could kennel a dog for ten days, a dog with a bad leg, and administer the medication which still had to be bought at the local pharmacy.
Being the nosy person I am by nature I asked all the questions to which you have just read the answers.
Ad and I were both horrified to say the least. Put a young dog with a severely injured/ broken leg (no x-rays had been done ) back on the street? Never. We don't work like that. If we take on an injured dog, we go the whole way. I immediately phoned Dr. Pedro Caramelo in Faro and took the dog down for observation and diagnosis.
Today I fetched him and he is here with us, safe and eating quite well. The diagnosis for his leg is not good at the moment as there are several scenarios to take into consideration and all require intricate surgery.
Sammy also has prostate problems and these need to be dealt with as soon as possible. All blood work needs to be done to see what other hidden, underlying conditions he has. He needs to build up his strength first before he can undergo any surgery and it will be a long road to recovery. But we have done it before so we'll try and do it again.
We hope our true friends and doggy lovers will help by sponsoring SAMMY in any way they can, privately or with a fun fundraiser. Please contact me by PM or by email if you can help.
Sorry this is so long but these awful situations need explaining and just pics are not enough. Thanks everyone for reading.

TOBY

MIXED BREED,  MALE

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.

XANTO

MIXED BREED,  MALE

Xanto, just under 2 years old and probably born in February 2017, showed very loud and clear that he was in need and had to be rescued. Our vet has the practice along the railway in Faro (Centro Vetérinario da Estação) and they had heard a dog crying on the other side of the railway for a few days. But the other side of the railway is not such a nice place with homeless people, drug addicts and criminal youngsters, and Isabel did not dare to go and look. But because Xanto did not stop crying, something had to be done. She then called the police and they have taken her to this aweful place and protected her and also helped to put Xanto in the car. Xanto was in a very bad condition, emaciated, dehydrated, full of scabies etc. etc. but he could not be brought to a better place than to Isabel and Pedro. Now he has been completely recovered, weighs 27 kg, greets everyone he meets in the clinic very enthusiastically and is very social towards other animals. We think that he also has the right to his own home and his own family where he can be happy.
