We today went to Paws Dogs Shelter in Acheleia, Paphos and rescued a beautiful red boxer dog to keep our Brindle Boxer company. We have named her Daisy and she is now happily playing on the balcony with Hummer – see photos:-
Daisy is very thin at the moment so will need some feeding up but we stopped off at the vets on the way back from the shelter to have her checked over and vaccinated and other than her weight appears to be fit and healthy and looks as though she will be a very loving dog.
It really is worth a visit to the Shelter if you are thinking of getting a dog I couldn’t believe how many lovely looking dogs and puppies were there in which I must say are kept in absolutely brilliant clean conditions – it puts British Dogs Homes to shame which are always so depressing and smelly! Although it is so sad to think so many helpless dogs have been abandoned at least it is comforting to see them so well looked after while waiting for a new and loving home.
Unfortunately it appears that some British and Cypriot people tend to just abandon their dogs when they no longer suit, i.e. flying back to the UK or after realising that owning a dog involves time, energy and devotion along with the obvious expenses. Dogs and puppies,(there was even a puppy Dalmatian at the centre looking for a home) appear to be abandoned on the streets daily. What have any of these animals done to deserve this treatment and disrespect?
