Olaf is a handsome, medium sized, smooth coated, tan chap , who is calm and happy around other dogs and cats.
Olaf was brought to a dog shelter in Spain, when he was 8 months old. His family abandoned him because they thought his scabies could spread to their pure bred hunting dogs or even their children. Olaf healed nicely in a few months and grew up at the shelter, the only home he’s known.
He’s a favourite amongst volunteers for his loving temperament: he has a very sociable, submissive personality. He is happy and calm when meeting any dog, cat or person. He’s not shy at all, he always approaches other dogs to play or people visiting him to get some affection – he is very affectionate indeed. He’s a smart and obedient boy, he loves human company and with dogs he’s so calm and submissive that he’s been picked on by more dominant dogs many times.

For Rescue Dogs coming from overseas
This adoption fee is a contribution towards the costs of rescuing the dog including
– microchip, pet passport, vaccines, tests for South European diseases, neutering (IF OLD ENOUGH), parasite treatment and transport to the UK.
We can not home dogs from overseas to people who work full time or long hours, unless some sort of doggy day care is offered. They need someone at home a lot of the day, they are not used to being alone for long periods. A dog walker for an hour out of the day is not enough.
Leaving dogs a long time on their own means they are highly likely to develop separation anxiety which is distressing for them and everyone in their new home.
