    This is so sad, like in this latest days an elderly female dog has being wondering in the neighborhood.

    She looks very different from the common feral dogs, since this one looks like she had an owner that perhaps got bored of her and kicked her out of the house.

    She is wearing a collar and appears to have at least 10 years old, and she seems to be a GSD/boxer mix or a malinois/boxer mix.

    She looks similar to this dog but wit less cheeks http://www.flickr.com/photos/anda74/3794296404/in/photostream/

    Some of the people from here are feeding her, including us, we called he "Coco" because she is always wondering near a fast food restaurant called "coco baleadas"


    It's so depresing... since we don't have shelters that is what people do when they get tired of their pets, they: A) give the pet to someone for free B) dump the pet to the street.

    Is so sad, the poor thing is so gentle she looks to be so confused in why her owner did that to her, she follows people and appears to even obey some commands, it doesn't appear like had any litters, I doubt she is spayed since no one does that here,

    So we guess, the owner most lickely got a new adorable puppy and got rid of her.

    How come humans can be so horrible? she has such sweet eyes that reminds me of Oso our first dog, who has a GSD/husky mix.

    Is so hearthbreaking, it would be nice if we could adopt her but unfurtunlly here in this country we have a hard financial situation , and we don't have an idea if she has some kind of disease, also it could be risky since we have already a tiny toy dog like Pompadour, and a cousin of mine lost a a poodle/peke mix that was mauled by their own rottweiler.

    So what we could at least do is to give her food for now.

    Maybe provide her some shelter from the weather and attention? So sad . . . I don't think I could leave her like that, but I'm used to keeping dogs separated.

    Yes is so depresing, I updated my post wit a pic of a dog that looks similar to her.

    For now, we are feeding her, my parents are sad too but I guess they are afraid she might attack Pompadour, so they don't agree on letting her go in the yard or house.

    I'm trying to talk to my father if he agree in taking her to his farm that is out of the city, he have like 4 dogs there (mutts) maybe if we know how the behaviour (sp?) of this dog is he could agree on taking her.

    That sounds like it would be a lovely and kind thing to do for her. I hope he does :)

    Awww, I would have a hard time not taking her in! She's definitely a SharPei mix, doesn't look that old to me.

    That pic is just one I googled for using as an example :), the dog that is wondering here has grey on all her face, that dog on the pic look very similar to her, but she only have wrinkles in her forehead.

    The poor thing, she is so confused, today we saw a girl from the houses that are nearby that was giving her water and she was trying to put a leash on her, the dog walked away and looked very shy around her.


    I hope he agrees :( I'm not an expert on this, but for members who have experience wit shelter or negleted dogs how do they do to get a dog's trust? she seems gentle but she is very shy.

    Well in the weekend we looked to feed her she wasn't anyware to be seen, so we asked a guard that is near the area were she was staying and he told us that a person took her to his home, that it appears this person also fed her and is pretty sure it wasn't the owner who dumped her.

    So I hope the person who picked her takes care of her like she deserves :) , my mom told us that she saw the dog early in the morning (6 am) the same day that the person took her, and she cake in the front of our house to sniff and was like searching for something, maybe it was a way to say "goodby thanks for helping me in this difficult lonely days"
