It's hard to describe how we felt when that old boy walked into our shelter. We were in shock for sure. We took him from the City shelter where he came after 17 long years spent in the yard, outdoor, on the chain.
Kafka has experienced a real "metamorphosis" two weeks after he has arrived. From a scared old boy who was completely unaccustomed of human touch, he became a real joyful little cuddler. He hears well and sees a little weaker.
UPDATE: NERON IS RESERVED! :) Neron is related to Amor, and he also came to us after he spent a year in the City shelter. We knew that Neron is a wonderful dog, but we couldn't imagine that level of gratitude and patience.
Lav is a wonderful Great Dane mix. We like to think that some human is hiding in his smart head, because our Lav understands everything. He's calling us, talking to us, weeping sadly in his box. He lived 7 years in one industrial backyard and walked very little.
