UPDATE:  PASTO is moving into a foster home!

Please meet PASTO – not yet 3 years old and he had been in a refuge for over a year with zero, absolutely zero interest in him.  Life has not treated him well – and we hope to change that.

We took PASTO out to give him a chance and he has proven himself to have the most gorgeous of temperaments.  Now some six weeks on he  desperately needs the chance to live in a home environment where he can continue to learn and develop.  His time in the pension has shown him to be well worthy of a chance.  He’s still a bit rough around the edges (walking, arousal and interest in wildlife, and learning some more basic commands which are applicable to a home environment and better taught there) but perfectly ready to go to someone who is prepared to meet him where he’s at and continuing working with him.  He was cat tested at the refuge and showed no real interest in them at all.

How could a dog like PASTO get so overlooked?  Finding such a gem of a temperament is not easy.  Could it be that he is down on iCAD as a CHIEN COURANT – commonly known as a “hunt dog”?  Or because he had an infected tail that was dying and it had to be amputated which maybe gives him an odd look?  Or was he so depressed that he became institutionalised and there was “no-one home”?  We find this difficult to understand.  He more often than not looks like he is smiling and yes he gets excited at the prospect of a walk but what dog doesn’t?!   This boy could be perfectly adaptable to town/city living provided he had a good exercise routine, an enclosed garden to be able to have a run, and probably he would need to learn to play with toys.
