Story, Personality, Others:

Hastings was found on the street in a stormy day, the puppy was soaked through. Soon after his “owners” were identified, people that kept Hastings and his mum and his dog in a warehouse in an industrial area in conditions that were not acceptable. The municipal services with the assistance of police removed the dogs. The mum got adopted but Hasting and his father stayed with us and are both waiting for the new homes (they don´t have to be adopted together).

Hastings was growing quickly and his front legs were bent which apparently happens with big dogs that do not get enough vitamines when they grow. When this started to happen we changed Hasting´s food into a “mobility” version and we gave him “condroprotector” daily. It helped as now he is fully grown and the legs are normal.

Hastings is extremely gentle and chilled out. He has a real rafeiro alentejano temperament which means he is very calm and he likes to just lie down in the sun for most part of the day. They are like this. But he can also bark, then he has a beautiful deep bark. He gets along with all dogs, males and females. He is simply gentle. He walks on the leash.
