I went and met Suzy for the very time when I took her for an afternoon of walking, running and playing around Jávea. Suzy lives in the APASA kennel and really should find a new permanent home with people who love her. Because the thing is, as long as we were in the kennel with lots of dogs barking and pouncing about, Suzy was acting all nervous and wild. She jumped in all directions, wouldn’t let me touch her and was visibly scared.
It all changed completely as soon as we had walked for 5 minutes alone. She calmed down, became talkative and as we had spent just a little time talking and playing she became very placid and affectionate.
Of course, every dog is an individual little personality with its own experiences and preferences. Some probably love the social life of the kennel and the company of all the other dogs. In Suzys case it clearly makes her crazy and scared to have so many dogs around her at all times. All I could do was take her for a couple of hours of relaxing fun on her own and the hard working people of the kennel of course do not have the resources to give her a special kennel home away from the other dogs.
The APASA people clearly love dogs – and they do an incredible job, but for a dog like Suzy I think the only solution to give her a happy life is for YOU to help out. If you live in the Javea area and consider adopting a dog, go and meet her. Take her for a walk and get to know her. You will very soon find out that she is a wonderfully affectionate dog with an adorable personality. Please give her a chance for a bright future with your family, I promise she will give you plenty of rewards back in form of love, loyalty and fun times!
Please consider going to the APASA Javea Dog Kennel and meet Suzy or some of the many other lovely dogs waiting for a new home with a family to love!
