Story, Personality, Others:

Markus was found on the street and brought to us. He was skinny and sad. He lied down where he was put and he did not move. He did not eat either. We thought he was sick, we had blood tests done on him and ultrasound and nothing wrong was discovered. It could only be a deep sadness… He was abandoned, he lost his home, he was confused and he did not want to live anymore. How else can we explain this? Dogs can also be sad and suffer mental anguish.

Days passed and Markus slowly started to become more joyful. People were nice to him and he got lots of cuddles, dogs were nice to him and invited him to play. Finally he perked up. Now he walks around the shelter with his tail up and he eats, he is still a picky eater but at least he is not starving himself anymore. And he loves human attention. When he finds someone who wants to give it, he even turns belly up to get more cuddles.

He is good with other dogs, social, friendly and gentle. He walks very well on the leash.
