About Belo

BELO, male, Shelter since 09.02.2013

Crossbreed, DOB 15.01.2012 – 70 cm


We found Belo tied to our gate one morning, with a little bit of food but no further information about his previous life. At the beginning he was really sad, just waiting for somebody to pick him up. Unfortunately we found out that he is suffering from Leishmania, although there are no visible sign of his illness. He has become more familiar with life here in the shelter and he has found some dog friends here too. However it is clear that the shelter environment is not right for Belo as he longs for some love, attention and also for some training. Belo’s ideal home would be with someone who has a lot of experience with bigger dogs, who can provide him with some training in order to make him the best dog he can be. Belo’s ideal home would also be without any children as he is a big dog and might react to young children around him. We are sure that with a little bit of love and patience, Belo can become a really great member of the household.
