Bono was rescued in May 2015. We got a call about an abandoned puppy in the area, that appeared to be sick. I was there an hour later. He was hanging out outside a cafeteria, obviously begging for food and attention.
He was about four or five months old, full of ticks and fleas, and a skin irritation that made his scratch constantly. Rescuing his was one of the easiest things I ever did. He just saw us, came straight to us, we picked him up, put him in the car and…that was it. Piece of cake. I could only foster him for 15 days. And within those 15 days he already learned to sit for a treat, retrieve the ball, walk on a leash and control his bladder.
After his treatment, I took him to our tiny shelter, and it’s where he is until now. And it is so sad. Right now, he is the oldest dog there – not in age (he is only two years old), but he’s the one who has been there the longest. This video is the only thing I can do for him for now, he is not perfect, but he is kind, affectionate, dog friendly and desperately needs stimulation, he needs to change environment, he needs to learn about life.
Every time he leaves the shelter, he tries to run as far away from it as possible, trying to grasp every new smell, every new thing, trying to experience something different, something new. Bono is my biggest loose end, and I want more than anything to see him adopted. If you are interested, you can contact me at: [email protected] or zeil at: [email protected]
