Koi, male, Shelter since 30.09.20
Crossbreed, DOB 09.04.2006 – 20 cm
Koi was bought in to the shelter with his friend Dolly who he has lived with since he was a puppy. This is a sad story of betrayal as they have been abandoned together in their old age despite spending their entire lives in a warm, comfy home living a normal dog life. Koi in particular was adopted from Apasa as a little puppy, and now at 14 years old he finds his nightmare has come true and he is back in the shelter once more. The two of them look out the door wondering what is going on and when they will be collected by their owner, but now all we can do for them is hope that someone comes along and saves them from shelter life, taking them home for good. The perfect home for Koi would be with a very special family who will also adopt Dolly, as the two have lived together their whole lives and would suffer without each other. Koi is a wonderful, affectionate and loyal dog who craves human affection. He is only a little dog and is very quiet. He is 14 years old and mainly just needs love and care. It is important for these two that their next home is their last and that they never feel this level of betrayal ever again.
