History : While people were sitting comfortably around a table on Christmas 2021 and their dogs were happily relaxing on their beds, I was alone on a country road. No party prospect and no gift prospect. Of course I wanted that too. Fortunately, there were people who were outside and picked me up on a country road. They took me to the animal safe haven and gave me something to eat there. That was my Christmas dinner. You have to imagine I was pretty famished. But not only that, I also looked quite sloppy. The good folks here at the shelter assume I was abandoned by a hunter or ran away because I didn’t feel well treated there. What really happened will probably always be my secret. I was baptized Hope and I do have it. I hope I can find my sweet home and not have to spend another Christmas without my loved ones. But I don’t want to wait until next Christmas because I want to be able to move right away. Spending the spring and summer in my new home, that would be my belated Christmas wish for you.
Description : Although I always have enough food here at the shelter, I am still a little afraid that it will be taken away from me. That’s why I’m still defending my food right now. But if you can credibly assure me that no one is going to take my food away again, then we can work on it together. Apart from this little problem in terms of food, I am an absolutely uncomplicated dog. I get along wonderfully with my colleagues here. It was not a problem at all to integrate an existing group of dogs. We all have the same destiny and are looking for a family of our own. I love when someone pays attention to me. I don’t care if the two-legged friend is male or female. I also like older children. I get to know everyone in a friendly and open-minded way and I really like it when you caress me.
We’re looking for : Therefore, I might as well move into a family with older children if they fall in love with me. However, I can’t tell you for sure if I’ll also learn to love your current cat roommate, if you have one. Whether I like cats or not has not been proven yet. Since there certainly was a podenco in my ancestors, you have to be prepared for the fact that I might have a hunting instinct when I run free. You must be sporty, or at least quite active, because I am definitely sporty and I definitely need enough physical and mental activity. So if you prefer to lounge lazily on the couch, I’m sure I’d love to lay there too, but basically I prefer to be physically active, and I need you for that. It is also said that I am quite intelligent, so a mental stimulation would also be desirable. Maybe soon I can solve puzzles with you or play hidden object games, or you can learn with me when searching for objects or mantrailing. There are many possibilities, let’s try it together.
