Ivan, neutered male, 18 months old, 44 Lbs.
Every night I enjoy carrying some food to feed the strays nearby. I learned to count the numbers to make sure they are all well and waiting for me to come by. But that night was a little different. A new dog showed up, he merged into the group easily, wagging his tail to welcome me. He must be starving for quite some days that didn’t want to share the food with other dogs. So I had to feed him away from others. Then everything went fine. After meal, all dogs left as usual except this little one kept following me around. From his collar and clean fur, I could tell he was newly abandoned. From his submissive and housetrained behaviors, he probably had good life but for some reason to end up on the street. I tried to post him on Facebook and took him around to look for his master. Few months past, no one came to claim him. Well, it didn’t bother me at all because Ivan is truly a very lovable and cuddly dog. He is friendly with dogs, children and people. Every time we walk out, he always carries a sweet smile to welcome strangers and make friends easily with most of creatures. Ivan has a clean bill of health. And now he is ready for a permanent home.
