Nero (known as Negro at the shelter) ~ Galgo/Lab Mix

Arriving in Canada November 2017

 

Currently one of the longest residents at the Scooby shelter, Negro (Nero) has been overlooked for over 4 years. He is 1 of 4 lucky dogs chosen to be part of the Iberia Airlines & Scooby partnership where he gets to fly for free. We have a foster family ready to take Negro when he arrives, but he is also available for adoption now.

More about Negro (Nero)

Age: February 4, 2012
Arrived at shelter: October 1, 2013
Sex: male/neutered
Breed: We believe Negro (Nero) is  a Galgo/Labrador or mastin mix.

Negro (Nero) is a social, balance male who gets along well both male and female dogs.  He has been tested with cats and did well.  you can view the cat test video here.
He is also pretty good on a leash, which is amazing since a year ago, he hated his collar and the leash was 100% a no go! But look at him here… completely outfitted and ready to go for a walk. We think he would have probably walked straight to Canada when this video was made. He is READY! Nero on a leash.

My name is Negro at the shelter but my foster mom has already chosen a new name for me. Something with meaning and not just about my colour.  My new name is Nero. I arrived at Scooby on October 1, 2013. My birthday is February 4, 2012… so I was only a year old. I didn’t want to grow up in a shelter, but I did and you know what, I am still a really good dog.”

Nero is noble, reserved, loyal, sensible.  He makes himself unnoticed and watches you from a distance until he is sure you are a friend. We prefer not to think, not to know what(or who) made him so suspicious. But he is brave and clever and although not an pushy dog he likes and loves people. When you visit his paddock he doesn’t  jump on you but you can be sure he is happy to see you, the happiest in his paddock.

He looks at you waggling his tail and when you are “free” he comes slowly and gives you a shy kiss. He feels relaxed near the people he knows. He loves playing with toys. He is well-mannered and knows “Sit!”. He is good with other dogs; being with his friends gives him security. Nero finally trusts people again so he now needs someone who also trusts him and who will give him a proper loving home.

CUBA ~ fostered in Sask. Canada

Cuba is a Scooby galgo being fostered in Regina, Saskatchewan. Her adoption fee is $500 + any transportation cost depending on where her final home is.
If you wish to apply to adopt Cuba, please complete the adoption application found here.

Here is a note from her foster dad Garson Hunter

Cuba was found abandoned in rural Spain, where she was caught and brought to the Scooby Medina Residencia. She has been fostered in Canada the past 10 months and is completely house trained and used to living in an urban household environment where she lives with three other Galgos. Approximately 5 years of age, she is spayed, microchipped, has a EU passport and up to date on her shots. She’s great on walks, good with male and female dogs and with meeting new people. It’s doubtful that she is cat safe. Cuba can be left indoors for long periods of time and would do best with another dog companion.

Photos coming soon.
