Story, Personality, Others:

Xuxa was brought to us from a hoarder. People that had dogs and then more dogs, they didn´t sterilise them, so there were puppies and more puppies. At some point there were complaints, the municipal pound got involved, but all they did was to drive the dogs to a private shelter. They just vaccinated them against rabies, they did not even sterilise them. Things are slowly changing in Portugal and some municipal pounds sterilise the dog before sending them anywhere but not this particular one. Those continue being a part of the problem and not the solution. And still…. they get money from the municipality for their activity but the activity is hardly existent, so?

Xuxa is a sweetie. She is very friendly, social and cuddly. She appreciates human attention. She is also social with other dogs, in fact she lived with many dogs so she is really used to canine company. She walks well on the leash.
