Other details: 

Nino’s owner had to go into a home and the family were only visiting once a week to feed him. He is about 2 years old and has no life experience at all – he was put into a small kennel as a puppy and that is the only life he has known. He was terrified of someone stroking him but is already learning to love it. He is in a pen by himself at the moment until he gets more used to having other dogs around, then we can introduce him into a group kennel. He is very playful and loves to play with a ball on his own, possibly the only toy he has ever known.

Despite the miserable start to his life, we have high hopes for Nino – he has reacted so well already to the care he has received from us in the last couple of weeks. He is obviously desperate for love and a proper home and will be a truly wonderful companion for someone who can offer him that.
