This handsome lad is a tan and white Boxer youngster, with lovely markings. We think hes a mix due to his two tone colours but he is identical to a full breed Boxer. He stands at 60 cms. Ajax has had a bad life so far being chained up in dirty surroundings and isolated. When first found, he was a lovable young dog and very excitable to be getting company and some cuddles. Poor boy is now starting to become a little protective of his food and bed when approached. This is something that the rescue are working on now but he will need a patient owner and someone who is prepared to reassure him and train him.
Breed : Boxer cross
Age : 15 months
History -Ajax is in Spain, as a puppy he lived in a house up to age 8 or 9 months, then was chained up permanently outside a house at the end of a village with little shelter, no bed, not always fed or watered and amongst his own faeces which were only removed approx every 2 weeks.
First spotted by one of the rescue volunteers in about July 2017, they would feed him some days and give him treats, bones etc to occupy him. He was never walked by his owner, who also barely visited him. This was reported to the Police and then he was moved by the owner to an enclosure where he was out of pubic view.
Poor Ajax could not see out, just looking at 4 walls, no bed and no toys and no visits. He was still there at the 1st March and was still chained up, but he has just been released to the rescue after pressure from the Police.
Ajax now needs properly assessing and he needs to get used to people and other dogs, although he was always OK with the volunteers 2 female dogs when they went to visit him.
Poor boy doesn’t bark, and was only heard twice in the 6 months he was chained up.
He is to be tested with cats
More assessments will be posted as he progresses.
The photos attached are when he was first found chained up.

For Dogs coming from Spain and Portugal
This adoption fee is a contribution towards the costs of rescuing the dog- microchip, passport, vaccines, tests for S European diseases, neutering , parasite treatment and transport to the UK.
We can not home dogs from Spain or Portugal to people who work, even part time. They need someone at home all day, they are not used to being alone, so even a couple of hours broken with a dog walker will be too much for them to cope with. They are highly likely to develop separation anxiety which is distressing for them and everyone in their new home.
Adoption Fee : £245 – to be paid direct to the Spanish rescue to cover travel costs via UK bank account
