The shy chap

Rossi has no med. cost and is completely 
healthy as far as we know.

Hi, I am Rossi. 

I had what you would call a difficult start. In 2017 my sister and I were found as small puppies rather lost on the streets of Crete. Our Mama was gone. But we were very lucky and taken to a foster home. So after the initial bad beginning, we learnt what a home can be like. 

When we got a little older and had all the necessary vaccines - you need those otherwise a shelter can be dangerous place for little puppies - we moved into the shelter.

So, we are well cared for now.

My problem is...I am a bit shy. I am not traumatized or something. I just need a little bit of time. I like to build a little trust first but then when I am comfortable I can be like I am:

a very nice dog, getting along with children and other dogs. Cats and other animals need to be tested because I have no memory I ever met them - so if you want to know ask the friendly people here.

Well, I am waiting now for a message from you. That you are interested in me. I can offer you kisses and lots of fun, free exercise outside, probably you'll meet new people because of me...so one big adventure!
