😭Imagine being ill, curled on a doorstep of a supermarket, people passing you by even skipping you. You are cold, sick, week, can't move, can't eat. You just want to sleep and let go. It's almost every day's sight in countries where dogs are being severely neglected by their owners and the whole society.
In front of the supermarket, a poorly looking dog was lying on a doorstep, in apathy, with a high fever and no strength to move from there.
Our friend, despite being flooded with dogs in need, couldn't walk away. She put him in a car and drove him to the vet.
After the physical exam, the vet said he was severely anemic, his gums, ears, and conjuctivas were pale to yellowish and he had a high fever.
The tests made showed babesiosis, a tick-borne disease that is successfully treated with medications if therapy is conducted in time. He also mentioned that if he had spent any day longer there, he wouldn't have made it . He had spent 2 weeks at the vet being constantly monitored and well looked for and finally started perking up and eating well so they gave him a release.
Lale came to his foster home, met many dogs and became friends with his savior who is now his foster carer.
Now this adorable boy after everything he's been through needs a loving carrying home!
Things you should know about LALE:
2 years old
Currently placed in a foster home which he shares with other dogs. The accommodation is designed for dogs only so he spends time in a crate during the night and during the day he roams through the house and goes in the garden
not cat tested but there shouldn't be any issues with how good natured he is
not accustomed to an indoor life and not toilet trained as he spends a lot of time outside - so this is something his family will have to show him. He is still very young and should pick it up quickly!
Very nice with dogs he spends time with but also with newcomers. He isn't too playful though and prefers to spend time with people or on his own, doing his sniffs and runs in the garden,
He isn't fearful of people but is somewhat shy and takes him a bit of time to overcome that and start approaching for cuddles. Lale is calm and docile, very sweet natured and a real goody. So far he's shown a moderate activity level
Hasn't been in contact with children. Due to his submissiveness and goodness we believe he could be every child's best friend. However we'd love dog savvy children and respectful towards animals
Doesn't walk on a lead and has never had a proper walk - so some guidance and patience is needed!
healthy, fully vaccinated and castrated
