None of the dogs that come to the shelter have a pretty story. But some of those stories are especially sad.
Mili was a hunting dog and he belonged to a family, but once he got older and just needed a quiet corner of his own, he became unnecessary, unimportant. He was seen wandering in nearby villages, searching for food. The villagers would chase him away and so he wandered for days, from village to village.
Disoriented and scared, this dog who – all of a sudden – belonged to no one was brought to the shelter and he never got used to it. Mili is about 11. We know that he used to have a home and that he lost it a year ago. Somewhere along the way he lost his trust in people too so now it will take him some time to get used to them again.
Mili arrived at the shelter a year ago. He shows his mistrust by retreating and growling, but he has never bitten anyone. He is very fond of walks and is leash-trained. He is friendly towards other dogs and very careful around people.
He is looking for people who will see a friend in need behind the suffering in his eyes and the low growl. He is one of those dogs who carry a lot of trauma and he needs people of his own now more than ever.
