Weiss Rescue-Part 1
Brown Rescue-Part 1
Late!...But not too late for help to finally come to these two...
What a life for a dog...To be treated as follows for
years. They were tied to a short chains with very little room to
move, they had to wade in their own wastes, they were starved to
skeletal size, they received almost no water and absolutely no love.
They did not know what going for a walk was, never received a good word
or petting, never received enough food or water. It was just
simply pure existence. They persevered in filth and misery year
The Animal Welfare folks (PAG) offered to help many
times, but was always refused by the owner. By law, the Animal
Protectors had their hands tied. Only now, since the owner has
been hospitalized, can PAG take the initiative. The regulatory
hurdles have been officially breached and the door has been opened for
these tortured animals.
At the moment, these two do not even have names.
The one we are
temporarily calling "Weiss" shook and peed all over from fear as the
Animal Protectors approached him. What had he expected?
Being hit or otherwise physically mistreated as had been the case in the
past? Was there ever a different experience with humans? We
The one we are now
temporarily calling "Braun" walked right up to these new humans despite
all of his bad experiences which would indicate that he is open to find
the good in people.
Today they have a
warm place to sleep and are able to move around. They walk well on
a line with their rescuers. They are now receiving enough food and
water and best of all, love, care and respect for the creatures they
are. They are learning late, but not too late that all humans are
They will see the Vet soon and receive a medical
check-up and then be allowed to recover slowly from their maltreatment.
We estimate their ages to be around six to seven years and the will have
quite a few years remaining for a good dog's life. The two are now
under foster care with other dogs and cats and can start their new
lives. They will also be given names soon.
On La Gomera, there is no Animal Shelter, but we wish
to spare them having to endure a Shelter on Tenerife. We are very
hopeful that there are people out there that care and are possibly ready
to offer these two good. loving homes.
Today, they appear to be very thankful for there
liberation from their misery and we are hopeful that they will soon
recover and bad experiences will be soon be put behind them. They
deserve our care and respect. We believe in that "Good End" and we
shall do our best to help these two find the "Good" wherever it is
