Auto’s Story

dog-autoAuto was around 4 months old when he came to K9, back in July 2008. He was found by the TF1 junction at Las Chafiras with a collar and lead attached. You would think he was actually a lost dog but no-one came looking for him. So he has grown up in the kennels, whatever happened to him in that first 4 months has stuck, as he is very shy with new people, especially with men. He also has a problem with new dogs and will be the first to attack. Over his time at K9 he has been paired up with various kennel mates and seen them go to new homes. He loves to go walking and is very good off the lead, he never strays far from your side. Auto is a special dog and will need a very loving and caring home, can you help? With time he will grow to love you and be a very good companion. It would be best for him to be in a one dog family although with time and effort will pair with a female. We are hoping that Auto’s Story will touch the heart of someone, who will be willing to give him a chance. If you can help, please contact K9 667 638 468, or email Thanks for reading.

Auto’s story continues

This morning was very emotional for us at k9. Many tears of joy were shed. Back on the 16th of August 2008, a 4 month old puppy was brought into k9, he was found next to the autopisto, and called Auto. Over the many years he has seen many kennel partners adopted, yet no one took a second glance at Auto. He is a very shy boy and always cowered in the corner. Last summer his story went out in the papers, Keith and Sue read this and felt so sorry for him, that they decided to sponsor him and came up to meet him. As expected he cowered away from the attention. This did not deter Keith and every week he came for a visit, firstly going into the kennel and sitting with him then finally months later taking him for a walk. After moving house, they decided they wanted to do more and today Auto and Charlie have gone to live with them. Hopefully he will settle in to the new environment and enjoy many years of comfort. The moral of the story is never give up, there is a home out there somewhere for all dogs.
