Pirata is a Spanish Greyhound (Galgos) of about 4 years old. When he arrived, he was a dog with a lot of fears and seeing the scars on his face, we can imagine why. At the beginning, it was so hard to get close to him. However, there is nothing that helps more than treating a dog with patience and lot of love. And that is what we did, getting some incredible results.
Now, Pirata is a lovely and affectionate boy with people he recognises and if he feels comfortable with. But with unknown people he is still shy, but nothing like he was a few weeks ago. When he is with other dogs he is calm, submissive and sociable, no matter if they are males or females. He is in foster in Essex where, although still shy and a little wary at times, is gaining confidence.
He is adjusting well and learning the values of living in a home, i.e. snoozing on the sofa and bed. He is not that playful with other dogs, but is very fond of squeaky toys. It is still early days though, but it is very clear this boy is gentle and enjoys fuss.
Pirata needs a family who will carry on giving him love and treating him with patience so he can keep improving until he will be a confident boy.
