We had a few calls during the week about a dog that had been abandoned at Fragas de São Simão so went to check him out. We can’t take every stray dog that is reported to us, there are simply too many and often, those in villages etc are well fed – often very well fed if more than one household is feeding them! – can find water, shelter etc. But those in more remote spots, or with medical problems, need our help.
Fragas is a very friendly dog of about 3 years old – he has a bad case of scabies which will require treatment but otherwise seems fine. Once he is recovered, he is going to make someone a lovely companion!
