Story, Personality, Others:
Tony belonged to someone since he was 3 months old. Last week he was found on the street. He has a chip so we contacted the owner who said the dog “escaped”. But – he added – as we already had the dog, would we like to keep him in the shelter as the guy sold the farm on which he kept the dog and the dog could not go back there for much longer. This is a funny coincidence then when the guy sells the farm the dog “escapes”. He had him on this farm since a puppy, he did not even live there, so the dog did not even have a daily human contact or regular food all his life… This is what they do, they want guard dogs, they put them on a field with a dog house and think that all dogs need is the space to run and that´s it.
(Actually he says he has another farm that he is selling and two dogs living there so he wants to bring the other two dogs as well).
This is so sad. This dog was worth nothing for his owner all his life. For 12 years he was serving him to be discarded at an old age. Tony is very gentle and friendly. He is very sweet with people and friendly with other dogs. He lived all his life in isolation while he loves human and canine contact. Life wasted. He deserved better. He still does but it would require a miracle to find him a loving home at his age.
