Shanorme is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Abandoned Puppy

I'm on holiday at the moment and staying a couple of kms past Faz Fato in the Tavira Hills. Driving back from Tavira yesterday, a couple of kms before Estorninhos, we found a puppy that had been dumped on the side of the road. No houses nearby and we searched up and down the lanes and couldn't find anyone he might have belonged to. We also took the puppy to the local bar to ask around.

I tried phoning one of the local vets and she said the rescue centres will be full and that my only option was to take it to the local Municipal Kennel.

Does anyone have any other suggestions as we are due to fly back on the 7th. If anyone knows of a shelter that will take the puppy, we are happy to make a sizeable donation to the shelter.

The puppy is male, he looks to be about 6 to 8 weeks old. He's in fairly good condition and is probably going to become a medium sized dog.

At the risk of sounding harsh (which isn't my intent)................ Welcome to Portugal.

All you can do is maybe speak to the vet again or speak to another vet or maybe try the Portugal animal rescue FB groups & be sure to mention the donation offer.

Sadly, it's an ongoing problem here.

Do you have a Facebook account? If so you could try posting on Anything Animal Algarve. I'll try to message someone there about what else you can do.

took puppy for a walk in the woods today and he was so well behaved. Didn't run off at all. Bounced along happily.
