Pino - Pinnochio is a large island dog . Pino was running wild in the fields and beaches along Pinneys Estate until he was trapped and brought to the world Vets spay-neuter clinic in mid March. So unsure of how he had ended up in a cage, the poor dog was petrified rigid as he waited at the clinic. He would not move and was as if made of wood, hence his name.
After the surgery, we made the decision to bring him back into the CARE Shelter for Rehabilitation. Pino is doing very well, still unsure of humans, as before we met, it is likely his only interaction with humans were being yelled at or things flying through the air towards him. He is slowly coming around. Not sure yet with many people, but happy in the big recreation pen with 5 friends to help him be a dog and gradually learn to trust humans.
Habit:: Tends to go hide behind a bush when you enter the pen, is timid but making great progress. No longer 'wooden' but fluid and graceful as he runs. Needs anexperienced and calm guardian to contuinue his rehabilitation. which of course CARE will continue our work with him to build his confidence.
