My name is Doroteo! Let me tell you about myself . . .

Hi, I’m Doroteo – or Doro for short. I’m a really cute male, black lab with possibly some hound, and/or Weimaraner in me. I was born approximately May 2012 and even though I’m a large dog, I’m fairly slender and only weigh 25 kgs or 55 lbs. Before I share my story with you, I want you to know that I’m healthy and happy living in my foster home now.

I didn’t have an easy start in life. As most street dogs, I had difficulty finding food, water and shelter. I was malnourished and was in very bad condition when my foster Dad found me. I had infections in my eyes and had lost my fur and was covered in open, bleeding wounds that hurt so much. My foster Dad spent more than 3 months cleaning my full body applying balsam and cream to heal my wounds. He even used a special soap to wash me. After being so well cared for, regular food, water, shade and rest, I started to feel stronger and full of hope.

After about 6 months my foster could no longer keep me because he had 5 other dogs in a very small house so he gave me to a local veterinarian. Life was good there for awhile, however, after some time she couldn’t afford to keep me so that is how I ended up in my current foster home. I really like it here because there are lots of other dogs for me to play with and the best part is that my original foster Dad comes to visit me here.

I’m a very well behaved boy and I never get into trouble because I’m calm and not aggressive at all. I’m a very noble and loving dog who always obeys commands. I get along really well with my other foster dogs as well as all visitors we get. I’ve never been around cats or children so don’t know how I would react to either of them. I love to go for a drive in the car and long walks and I’m pretty good on a leash.

Even though I love my foster home and my brothers and sisters, I would really like to find a home of my very own. Could you be that special person? Please consider me and fill out an adoption form as soon as possible.
