The dog’s life was changed after being ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇᴅ. In mid-February, tire Rᴇᴘᴀɪʀ workers Ozimar Queiroz and Lindomar Queiroz were surprised when they arrived early to work at the tire Rᴇᴘᴀɪʀ shop located on Estrada do Belmont, Pᴏʀᴛᴏ Vᴇʟʜᴏ. This was due to an ᴀʙᴀɴᴅᴏɴᴇᴅ dog on the side of the road. The dog was ᴛʜɪɴ, had ᴏᴘᴇɴ ᴘᴀᴡs, and was ᴜɴᴀʙʟᴇ to walk.
When Ozimar, also known as Galego, learned about the dog’s ᴘʀᴇᴅɪᴄᴀᴍᴇɴᴛ, he found the conscious decision to care for the dog until he could find a family to adopt him. However, 20 days have passed and the dog still ᴅᴏᴇsɴ’ᴛ have a permanent home. He said:” They ᴛʜʀᴇᴡ him in front of the shop. We arrived in the morning and he was there. We felt sorry for him, we put him here and feeding him, but the ᴘᴏᴏʀ ᴛʜɪɴg is in this situation there. He ᴅᴏᴇsɴ’ᴛ walk because his two front ʟᴇɢs are ᴛᴜʀɴᴇᴅ ʙᴀᴄᴋ .”
The dog was affectionately named Seal, as it ᴄᴀɴɴᴏᴛ move because it has both ᴘᴀᴡs ᴏᴘᴇɴ. The tire mechanics move him around a few times during the day, but the dog eventually ends up ᴅʀᴀɢɢɪɴɢ ʜɪᴍsᴇʟꜰ ɪɴ ᴛʜᴇ ᴍᴜᴅ to interact with the only animal company available, a sᴛʀᴀʏ cat that walks around the tire shop. The dog is docile and in need of ᴠᴇᴛᴇʀɪɴᴀʀʏ ᴄᴀʀᴇ, but he ᴄᴀɴɴᴏᴛ afford it. Lindomar Queiroz said:” Because of his ᴀᴘᴘᴇᴀʀᴀɴᴄᴇ, we call him a seal. He was very ᴛʜɪɴ when we ᴄᴀᴜɢʜᴛ him, but he’s already getting fat because we’re feeding him. He’s ꜰɪʟᴛʜʏ from the rain, but we don’t care here.”
The post about the ᴀʙᴀɴᴅᴏɴᴇᴅ dog on social networks, immediately received a lot of attention, and has already been adopted by a couple Michele from Porto Velho. Michele said:” It was love at first sɪɢʜᴛ. His condition ᴛᴏᴜᴄʜᴇᴅ me a lot. Already ʜᴇʟᴘʟᴇss, she becomes even more so because she is so docile and loving. I fell in love with him. I love him. I’m at a ʟᴏss for words. I love him, very much. Mother’s feeling. The tire Rᴇᴘᴀɪʀ workers who discovered the pit bull on the road cared for him for nearly three weeks, providing him with food and water. They named him ‘Foca’ at first, but I took him in and I want ᴘᴇʀᴍᴀɴᴇɴᴛʟʏ changed his name.”
