Fig is a four year old medium sized Cross-Breed. Fig is fostered in Norfolk (FR007). Fig was caught from the streets of Romania by the dog catchers and taken to the Radauti public shelter. The shelter is always overcrowded and fighting is rife and Fig was picked on by the other dogs. After he was badly attacked for a second time he was removed from the pens and placed in isolation for his own safety.
Unfortunately his sanctum was a dark cupboard sized pen in the depths of the shelter where his mental state was now at risk due to the deprived environment. We were asked to take him as an emergency case and he came to us early last year and was quickly rehomed. Sadly Fig has now been returned to us as ghosts from his past led him to react badly to having his collar held and other situations that startled him.
Fig is a happy and waggy tailed playful boy who adores humans and still loves other dogs despite his ordeal. He walks nicely on a lead and is desperate to be loved. He needs an experienced adopter with no young children who are understanding of his past and understand that a history of pain leaves its scars. It’s not just the scars on his body and his shredded ears that tell his woeful tale, the deepest scars are within him.
