Aka is a 7-8 year old female German Shepherd Dog. This lovely gentle, mature boy is Aka. Aka came to the shelter in Portugal in a terrible state. He had been found in the middle of nowhere (presumably abandoned) and his neck had horrendous injuries. We believe it’s possible he may have been tied up and fought to get away. He was underweight and very depressed. He was also disorientated when walking.
Happily, we were able to secure a foster home for him and his recovery began. His neck healed very well and he now has one small area without hair which will not grow back. He has gained weight and is a happier dog. He does appear to have some arthritic problems fairly typical of a German Shepherd Dog of this age but he moves around well. He sometimes shows some signs of confusion.
Despite all this, Aka is a lovely boy who just wants someone to love him and give him attention. He is a sensible boy and doesn’t’ like change. He is strong on a lead but may cope better with a harness. Because he sometimes has jealousy issues with other dogs, he would be better in a one dog home. He is tolerant with cats in his own home, but will chase cats that are outside.
Aka is a lovely dog, who just needs someone to love. Current location is in a foster home in Portugal can travel to the UK once he has a home to go to.
Adoption Fee : £185 – to be paid direct to the Portuguese rescue to cover travel costs via UK bank account.
