Comm 9Ramos is a lovely dog who has been staying at the refuge since August, 2015.  For a short while before that he had been living on the streets around Golf del Sur with two small dog friends.

Ramos says “ It was scary and lonely then and we were often hungry. Some kind people took us to K9 and my small chums found their forever homes quickly. Not me, though – it’s because I’m a bigger dog, you see.

I  quite like it at the refuge – my people are very good to me and it is much better than being on the street. I have a best friend and room mate called Mandy who I get on really well with. We have great fun together. Specially when we are out walking and exploring with our voluntarios. They tell me I am one of their favourites. All I know is I love being with them.

While that’s all good, nothing beats having your own cosy home and loving family, though. That’s what I really, really want most of all. I’m a friendly guy, very affectionate and docile, and I love people and also other dogs. I like to have lots of space so a nice garden would be good.  I am very well behaved. In fact, Mandy and I stay in the yard overnight while our chums are in their kennels. That’s because we are trusted to be good and to look after things. Do you have a special place in your home and heart for me? In return, I promise to be a loyal and loving companion.”
