Spread the word

RAFI and his brother Rafa were rescued together from a simple home in the mountains where they were exposed to zero experiences, and taken to the refuge and they were terrified.  Needless to say they were not chipped – so their names have just come “out of a hat”.  It took a couple of weeks to get them in a position where we had a chance of helping them.  This meant until they were comfortable when approached rather than petrified, and could have a lead put on them.  RAFI was the first off the mark and from word ‘go’ wanted to be friends but was just too scared to come up and say Hello.  However, it took relatively little time before he was happy to be stroked, have the lead put on him and ready for the off.

We were then able to get them into a foster home together so that we could assess their needs.  They immediately showed that they were ready for home life – even if many many things were strange and scary.

RAFI has improved so much that he is ready, once sterilised, for an adoptive home.   He is a very bright dog, a fast learner and a people pleaser!   So hopefully in the right hands he will continue to learn a great deal and become the beautiful dog he looks like he is going to be.

Despite their fears, doubtless their terrible past, neither RAFI nor his brother, has ever shown a gram of aggression.  Their choice is always to leave the scene or make themselves small.  They have so much love to give so whilst we know they are not a finished product, we do feel it is time for RAFI to move to his adoptive home where he will not face upheaval again.

His brother RAFA needs more time, and we need to give him a chance to find his own form of confidence rather than hiding behind his brother.  We feel RAFI’s boisterousness may be holding Rafa back from stepping forward.  Clearly splitting them and moving RAFI to another foster home is not desirable.

So in an ideal world we would like a family that is looking for a small to medium dog that is active, that will need a good amount of exercise (but not excessive) and a family that is willing to put in the further time, patience and effort that will be needed to help his reach his potential.

If you think you can give RAFI the next chance he needs, please write to us at info@lesamisdesanimaux.com.

RAFI is currently in foster in Department 19 (Corrèze) but the right home is more important than location.
