August – September 2020
We adopted two rescue dogs from Mexico: Zorra, (the black one) is only a year old but has already experienced a hard early life on the streets of Catemaco. She is fully recovered from a bad case of mange and malnutrition, and is now a happy high-energy dog. Heroe (the blond one) is a year old, having come from the streets of Tijuana and is best buddies with Zorra. He is lovely and gentle, and full of adventure.
