Most of the dogs in Romania are either dumped on the streets, dumped in public shelters which are horrendous places, born on the streets having to fend for themselves and face all kinds of dangers. Starvation being the biggest, beatings, torture, being hit by cars or even killed for money. The streets are a cruel cruel place especially winter time. Some also suffer horrendous cruelty from so called animal loving owners and the lucky ones are taken to private shelters where they are looked after until homes can be found for them.
Meet Liam he could fit into any one of the above scenarios taken to the Radauti public shelter by the dogcatchers over 8 months ago. Not the beat of places especially winter time, the shelters have no heating what so ever and they rely on donations for food, bedding etc. Volunteers can only do so many hours per week and they do the best they can for these dogs. This little lad only knows shelter life for now, it is not known whether he had a home before, he has to share his space with many other dogs so it is just as well he gets along ok with them, but even in the shelters fights over food can break out as there is very little to go around.
Liam is a smart little boy and enjoys what little human company he gets, and can be quite friendly and affectionate. He has been tested with cats and do not seem to mind them at all, it is not known how well he reacts to children as he has had very little contact with them, though he has not shown any aggression towards to children that go to the shelter on the weekends. He is a lovely boy that deserves a better chance at life than the one he has. Vaccinated to legal requirements for transport, dewormed, deflead, neutered, and chipped. He has EU passport.
