Lois was confiscated by the police along with 50 other dogs from an illegal breeder in Calanda, Spain, in May 2023. We don’t know exactly how he lived or what he had to endure, but it is clear that his living conditions were unsustainable. Lois was very thin, infested with bugs, and was not accustomed to people, walks, or even toys. In short, he had not received any kind of attention.
Lois is a shy dog. When someone approaches to touch him, he seeks refuge in his doghouse. However, if he senses that he is being ignored, he ventures out and starts playing with Levis. He gets along wonderfully with Levis and effectively communicates with the other dogs in the household with whom he has had brief contact so far.
Lois is not familiar with many everyday situations and, therefore, feels insecure. Currently, his adoptive mother is teaching him to accept wearing a harness and leash, and he is doing very well so far. However, once he has them on, he lies down on the ground and cannot relax enough to walk on the leash. Nevertheless, he is making great progress, and his adoptive mother is confident that she will soon be able to take him on his first walks.
After a while and once Lois gets accustomed to human presence, he allows familiar people to pet him. He seems to have a stronger affinity for his male caregiver, possibly due to past experiences. Lois needs a family that has patience, allows him to adapt gradually, and works on his fears lovingly. Although he is still young and playful, we believe that with the right support, he can have a very positive development. Once he has settled into his new home, he will need sufficient physical and mental exercise, and he will probably enjoy scent-related activities such as object search.Adoption costs for dogs : ADULT 180€ / PUPPY 120€ All animals available for adoption have a microchip and passport. They have been tested for common diseases (Leishmania for dogs, FeLV and FIV for cats). Adult animals are fully vaccinated and castrated.
* Until complete adaptation, adult supervision with small children is essential.
** This means we have tested the dog with cats in the shelter and has shown no reactive behaviour, but this does not guarantee 100% compatibility with cats. Therefore, we always advise that cats and dogs are together only under surveillance.
