This scaredy dog is in desperate need to find a place to call home and a person to call Mom or Dad. He will be timid at first, but with love and patience you will end up with an amazing loyal companion.
Snowby is about 1.5 years old. His life hasn’t been easy so far and he is really scared. He just finished treatment for Leishmaniasis and he is feeling and looking much better! He is vaccinated. He is really sweet once he starts trusting you and he loves being scratched on his little butt. Adopting a scared dog and gaining his trust is one of the most rewarding experiences! He is in Athens, Greece.

Snowby was found abandoned with his mother and sister in an empty field. All of their tails had already been cut off. They were all so scared it took us months to approach them.
After a few months, his mother (Nami) and his sister (Gigi) started trusting us. Unfortunately, Snowby didn’t. He was so scared that he was hiding and waiting for us to leave before he got out to eat.
We fed all three of them every day. At some point, he started losing weight. We wanted to take him to the vet, but we still couldn’t catch him. We couldn’t even get close to him! He became really skinny and one of his eyes turned blue.
We managed to catch him with some oral sedatives our vet prescribed and we took him to the clinic. His blood tests showed Leismaniasis, severe anaemia, and Ehrlichiosis. He stayed at the clinic for a month, where he received treatment.
He gained weight and he started looking and feeling a lot better! The first week he was there he was trying to hide in a corner. But then… we finally gained his trust! He learned to walk on a leash, which was not an easy task, and he loved going on walks with us! He also loved the fact that his sister was there as well and we’d take them on walks together. We were so happy when he started wagging his short tail when he saw us!
Whoever decides to adopt this beautiful dog will be truly lucky.
