Cleo is a beautiful, gentle four-year-old crossbreed weighing around 20 kilos. She was adopted from Puglia by Laura and her husband as a companion for their other adopted dog, Juno acquired from a dog shelter in Pisa where they used to live. They tried their best to manage the two dogs, but Juno was very dominant and Cleo increasingly anxious and withdrawn. She was also very upset by traffic and the general hustle and bustle of city life.
Laura was also pregnant and they were worried Juno may attack Cleo and the baby might get caught in the middle. That is why, with broken hearts, when they relocated to London last year they decided to find Cleo a new home. They placed her with a dog behaviourist in the countryside in Tuscany and Cleo came on leaps and bounds, regained her confidence and played happily with the lady’s other five dogs.
Now the behaviourist has to move to the north of Italy and can’t take Cleo. This means that this lovely little dog may well end up in the canile or be dumped in a field and consigned to guard dog duties.
Laura and her husband are devastated at this news and have reached out to me to see if I can help find Cleo the loving country home she deserves.
The deadline is the end of March.
Cleo is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, has a pet passport and gets on well with other dogs and with children. She has not had any experience of cats. She is currently in Pontedera about half an hour from Pisa, but it may be possible to arrange transport to another part of Italy if the right caring owner is found.
