Caramel story

(Visitor thoughts) When I arrived the dogs were all barking but after a few moments, they stopped…and that was one of the most beautiful silence… I looked around – dogs everywhere- small, white, brown, or black. I didn’t know in front of which kennel to stop at first. And there he was: a tiny white/caramel angel handing his paw.

Caramel story

(Visitor thoughts) When I arrived the dogs were all barking but after a few moments, they stopped…and that was one of the most beautiful silence… I looked around – dogs everywhere- small, white, brown, or black. I didn’t know in front of which kennel to stop at first. And there he was: a tiny white/caramel angel handing his paw.

(Dog thoughts) I knew someone is coming. I learn to distinguish a different sound from all the noise. It’s easy, after a while, to hear a different voice or sense a different smell. We (dogs) all try to find the right spot, the right angle inside the kennel to see better what’s happening.

(Visitor) Come on, pretty – don’t be shy…

(Dog thoughts) She just stopped in front of my kennel and I freeze. What I am going to do now? What if she will leave, too?

(Visitor) Why are you shacking, treasure?

(Dog thoughts) Is she going to notice me? Does she actually look at me, what shall I do now?

The pee – the spots you see now – oh, I am so embarrassed, it’s not what you think… I can be house trained, I know how to behave but right now, I am nervous and a bit scared because your eyes follow all my moves and without even really knowing it, I waited for this moment all my life …

(Visitor) Can you please open this gate and give me that gorgeous boy to hold, yes – that one that staring at me…

(Dog thoughts) Oh, I might soon find out what a real hug means!

Adopt a dog from the shelter!

This dialogue will make a whole new sense for you when you will visit our dog center and meet our dogs.
