Story, Personality, Others:
Patanisca was found on the street, seriously bitten by other dogs.
This is the reality of Portugal. Packs of homeless dogs in rural area or outskirts of the cities and owners who let their dogs roam around. Dogs not castrated, females in heat, fights among the dogs… And lack of any organised measures to deal with it especially that the mentalities say it is all right. Patanisca has been a victim of this reality.
The person that found him has a big heart and took him to the vet where he was treated on her cost, just a private person. Having many dogs already herself, she could not keep him when he was ready to leave the vet so brought him to the shelter. The wounds have nearly healed although you might still have a glimpse of some at the video.
Patanisca is a loving and affectionate dog. He is very gentle and he loves cuddles. And still he is super friendly with other dogs. He does not bear grudge that he was bitten, he already forgot. He walks well on the leash.
