Can you temporarily adopt this beautiful dog? It's urgent!


(Santa Cruz - Bolivia)





Mandy (male, mutt) was rescued off the street about 2 or 3 years ago. He does not have the lower part of his jaw (the vet is not sure if he was born this way or it happened due to an accident). In spite of this, he eats absolutely fine (dry food, or home cooked too, he has all his molars, which are the teeth dogs use to chew their food), drinks water no problem....they estimate him to be about 7-8 years old and a medium sized dog. He has been neutered and up to date on his shots.


Because no one ever adopted him (people would take one look at his jaw and get grossed out...but in reality its not gross) he ended up living all this time (as the clinic "mascot") at the Udabol animal hospital but unfortunately, the hospital (which is just a large house) has to move in literally one week (they have to be out after Carnaval). Mandy can not go to the new clinic because it is a lot smaller than the old place and has no yard or space for a dog. We have been asked to help find him a foster home (temporarily) until we can get more aggressive about finding him a permanent forever super good home :)

Mandy is very loving and a really sweet dog. He would be best in a home with dogs that are not aggressive since again, he has no way of defending himself in the event he is attacked by other dogs. Although there were no children living at the clinic he was in permanent contact with people every day (the clinic also functioned as a class room) so he is very social with people and has been around a lot of other dogs and even cats.

by: Silvia

Hi, I'm from Barcelona, Spain and work as a volunteer 2/3 months a year in and camp for rescued animals in Bolivia. I was browsing through this website and came accross with this post about Mandy. Stories like this break my heart so I'd love to know what happened to Mandy after all.

Thanks!

I'd love to foster this little guy until he finds a permanent home. I could come get him right after carnaval.
