Come and meet...
Walter joined the family in April 2022 and we estimated he was around 5 months old.
Walter was born on the streets but his mum and siblings died over the following months as they lived near a busy road. A government friend of the sanctuary’s took pity on Walter when he realised his mum was gone. He told us that a neighbour had been leaving food out for Walter, but after his mum died he wasn’t able to make it past bigger, tougher street dogs, and was often seen scrounging along the road. We suspect Walter has been hit by a car or bike as he walks with a signature limp.
Walter is a cautious boy and it takes a lot of patience to get past his standoffishness. However, we’re pleased to say he’s bonded with a few of the team and is seriously sweet to those he trusts.
Walter is now vaccinated and neutered, but still has a long journey with trust/fear issues before he can be adopted, unless your family is highly experienced/ qualified in helping dogs like Walter. Ironically, a family is what Walter needs most, but it will take a lot of work from him and his humans. Are you up for the challenge?
