Hello. My name is Bold and I am a very friendly sharpei cross pup. I was rescued by Tail when I was just over a week old with my 8 other siblings. WE were abandoned in the campo. I am now 6 months old and a great age to be adopted. I weigh 13kg and am about 40cm in height and super healthy. I am very beautiful as you can see, I am confident, which is why I am called Bold, and I walk well on a harness. If you would like to come and visit me please contact Gill (Torrox) 633405560 or visit our web site for information about adoption www.tailtorrox.es If any of your friends or family are considering getting a dog or pup, please check out our refuge first. All I want is a loving home. Thank you for reading my story.
