Sweet little Eve is 5 years old and weighs about 7 kilos, and long-legged Shakira is also 5 years old and weighs 9 kilos. Both girls have spent their entire lives at the shelter. They were dumped as a little puppies within a few weeks of each other and became firm friends – two tiny and terrified creatures that had clearly been abused.
When a puppy arrives in this condition, there is very little hope. It’s very difficult to help these shy dogs and Eve and Shakira are two of these sad, sad cases.
But as we’ve gained their trust we’ve been privileged enough to see their loving sides and catch glimpses of the amazing dogs we know that they can be.
Eve and Shakira are particularly close to one volunteer, our lovely Vaggelio. And recently, Vaggelio just couldn’t bear to see their sad eyes watching her as she left the shelter. So she decided to take them home as foster dogs and see if they could grow in confidence and be ‘adoptable’.
Eve is settling into well into life at Vaggelio’s and is behaving as if she has always lived in a home! Shakira is still a little in shock at the big change in her life.
Eve is already suitable for adoption, and we hope Shakira soon will be. The girls will be adoptable together or separately, but if separately there should be another friendly dog in their future home. Their ideal home is a quiet and experienced family, who live in the countryside with a secure garden – and have the time and patience to help a shy dog to bloom.
