Hello all, this is my first post on the forum!
I am in Caye Caulker for the winter, and LOVE it here. I had to leave my two fur-babies in the states as one has severe allergies. I am an absolute animal lover, and it breaks my heart to see the condition some animals are in here, as well as in Belize City. I vowed that I would help where I could, when I could.
This has now been put into action. A few weeks ago I picked up two of the saddest looking dogs I have ever seen and brought them home with me. I dealt with thousands of ticks, a serious worm infestation and extreme dehydration. With some good food, a good grooming and lots of TLC these pups are now 100% different dogs.
They are not entirely recovered yet but are well on their way. As I mentioned, I already have two dogs at home, and truly don't have the space for 4 big dogs, but I will not abandon these two now. I am going to have both neutered/spayed (a male and female) as well as all of their vaccinations, but I would love to find them a forever home here.
My best guess is that they are black lab/doberman crosses, 6-8 months old. They are almost perfectly house trained, very respectful and non-destructive inside. They do not bark or whine when left (but will let you know if someone is getting too close), and they quiet right down when you tell them to.
I am an experienced dog person, and both dogs will walk well on leashes, and know basic obedience as well as a few tricks (we already do sit, and paw!) before I let them go, so that they may be less hassle for someone. They had a pretty serious aversion to men and children when I first brought them home, but the female has come around full circle, and the male is well on his way.
These are going to be BIG dogs, and would do very well as yard dogs. They are quite attached to each other (I think they are litter mates), and I would very much love to see them stay together.
If anyone has any questions, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or reply here. I have lots of pictures, and would welcome people coming to meet them anytime. I go home in February, and would gladly keep them and work on training and condition until then if someone wanted.
