Mioritza aka Mio did not really have a place to feel safe and sound for.. probably her whole life. She was rescued from a killing shelter, meaning that when nobody comes and claims the dog after two weeks, they get killed. There is a big misconception and misinformation happening in human society about "those kinda dogs". Luckily due to some miracle she made it to Berlin, all the way into my home. As a foster pup. There have been several folks interested in adopting her. But no one really took her the way she is. She is amazing, a rebel, a sweet couch potato, sleeping preferably 20 hours a day. Curious. And scared. But given her history she is more than courageous, she's a warrior. I don't get people telling me they are afraid that MIO would change and be a scared old lady (this was a reason given to me after everything seemed perfect and they wanted to adopt her, but apparently they had a talk with their dog trainer who claimed Mio would definitely experience a change in behavior - he never saw Mio himself). Of course she will need time for adjusting, yet again to a whole different environment. But she is strong. And also a real lazy fella. When I took her home for Christmas, she sniffed around a bit and claimed my parent's couch. No problem whatsoever. Not even with our cat.
So, if you know someone, maybe even your parents or grandparents, who are looking for a dog. Suggest them getting an old rescued pupper, such as Mio. She is easy to handle, doesn't bark, somehow knows how to walk on a leash, doesn't shit or pee in your house... She prefers the countryside or suburban areas. And she is super soft btw. ;) #adoptdontshop #rescuedog #adventurebuddies #photography #rescuedogsofinstagram #pupper #oldpuppy #olddog #fierce #pupper #curious #nature #boopmynose
