Catching up with Old Friends – Sonia in France

We just love catching up with old friends from Aanifeira!  From time we bring updates of animals adopted in other countries (read here for more) and Sonia was one of these special cases being almost blind and incontinent when she was adopted by Betty from France.

Betty has done miracles with Sonia who had lived for most of her life in the darkness of the central corridor of Aanifeira’s pavilion (now demolished) for many years never fearing other dogs or humans who passed by her.

Betty keeps us posted on a regular basis regarding Sonia’s health issues and the latest news is that she is fine, no longer incontinent (her medication has had to be increased) and that has become a little more active.   Betty also reports that she makes it clear when she wants to drink water by giving a special squeek “hello I want some water”!

More about Sonia’s adoption can be read here.  Thank you Betty for giving an old podengo this wonderful chance in her life!
