She was abandoned in the public shelter last spring. We got her out just before a free spay/neuter campaign, we spayed and the freed her on the streets of Moreni; we had absolutely no room in Happy Paws for her and we were having problems with one of our "intelligent" neighbors at that time. Marilena would go feed her every day, but she was very unhappy and refused to eat; soon, she became even thinner than before. It was obvious to us she was a dog with an owner and she would not resist alone on the streets, because she desperately needed to feel she belonged somewhere. I have no idea why the owner didn't see the obvious...he must have not cared at all about her life...she was, after all, "just a dog".

My cousin found Mura abandoned on a field as a very small and sick puppy. She was under 2 months old, crawling alone, with no food, water or shelter. Her back legs weren't moving for some reason, he tought Mura was paralyzed. He kept her for a while, but the foster family couldn't keep her, so he brought her to Happy Paws. She was very shy and strange looking. No one saw her for a day or two, she kept hidding in the back of the doggie house or even behind it. Happy Paws was too noisy for her.
|No fence could stop his appetite|
He became very attached to Sayouri, now they are practicaly inseparable. Nico still has a big appetite, but the other dogs are not so happy to indulge his bad habbit of cleaning their food bowls. Red, who is our teacher for young male dogs, struggles to show him some good manners.
We tried putting him in a kennel, but he complains a lot, so he runs free with Sayouri (next to him in the picture), Linda (next to Sayouri) and Mura, the black one in the back. Keeping them from attacking one another's food bowls can be tricky.
Nico misses the time he was a tiny puppy a lot and still tries to go throught the fence; obviously, it's impossible...but trying didn't hurt anyone before, did it?
Nico is a 9 months old young male, neutered, friendly especially to female dogs, playful and loving. He does think ALL the food is his, but he is a sweet natured, handsome boy. Nico is available for adoption.
