Norte is a stunning 2 year old male Cross-Breed. He weighs 40k and is an amazing boy. He was born, together with his siblings in a field visited by the owner once a day to bring less than enough food. Their mum was 24/7 chained and desperate whenever her pups would go further than her two meters chain. The pups were raised there, unattended, with scabies and fleas.
At 7 months there were three of them remaining, with their mum. The pups were rescued, but, because of their little socialization with people, only one of them was not scared of everything. This sibling was the lucky one, as he is now living in Germany with a wonderful family. The other two siblings, Norte and Bun, were brought to a foster family but, unfortunately it was a little experienced one and they were completely free to leave the badly enclosed field. When the foster time expired Norte and Bun were two 9 months old big scared pups.
We needed more than a month to gain enough of their trust to be able to set a trap and chase them. Just when we got them to a small enclosure of 4m x 4m they got parvovirosis and Norte got the worst part of it. It took a bit to get them to love their new foster family, to start going on walks that they love and to start meeting new family members.
Norte is a shy lovely dog. He is curious and loves people and is very affectionate, but because of his fear he needs a little time to be able to approach to new people. He loves playing and running, but despite of his young age he is a calm dog. He is not suitable with cats but he is very good with other dogs.
We sent him one week to a house with other dogs and without his brother or anyone he knew and after a day he was all the time close to the girl living there and sleeping in her room even if he had never been inside a house. He loves going on walks, but because he is so scared of many things he gets stressed when he encounters people, bikes and motorcycles, or hears unknown noises.
Once he knows the people he is the loveliest boy. He would suit better to an experienced family living in the countryside. Despite of his really bad start in life he has become a great dog and has made amazing steps forward. Norte is currently in foster care in Spain, but ready to find his own family.
