FRESCA was wandering the streets looking for food, when she was spotted by two of our rescuers as they were driving past. She looked a bit odd, very thin around her waist.  At first they thought she was very malnurished, but when they approached her, they saw she was being strangled by something around her waist. They took her to the vet who operated on her the same day. The vet said she had a plastic band tied around her very tightly and for a very long time as new skin had grown over it.
FRESCA is fully recovered now after her surgery, looks great and is healthy. She is sweet, loving and playful –  a little shy of new situations, but learns very fast. She gets along with dogs and cats, loves people and is very docile. She is in foster in the UK.

All potential adopters will have to undergo a screening and home check process. This can take between 1-10 days dependant on available volunteers to perform your home check. All volunteers for ABLDR are unpaid and do this in their spare time whilst also holding down regular daytime jobs. Please be patient whilst we complete these checks. They are set to protect not only the dog but also you, the adopter, from adopting the wrong dog for your family. If you wish to adopt one of our lovely dogs please fill in an Adoption Application and our dog co-ordinator will be in contact with you very shortly to discuss your request. We aim to contact all new adoption applications within 24 hours and certainly within 48 hours.
