Hello, I am SPECKLES. It’s probably not hard to guess how I got my name. 😉 But something that is spotless is my reputation here at the shelter. My caretakers only have nice things to say about me.
Everybody loves my calm and gentle personality, both people and dogs. And of course I also love them all just as much. (I’m not a big fan of cats or other small animals though.) Nobody can believe that there was no-one looking for such a sweet girl like me when I was wandering around alone on the streets.
If I had to choose one thing that I love the most, it would be cuddles. I’m a real cuddle bunny! And I’m also proud of the fact that I am a wonderful family dog. If I could only get one wish granted, it would be finding loving human friends who also offer me a forever home.
Something else you need to know about me is that I was also bitten by a sandfly and got leishmania for which I received treatment and it is now dormant and under control. Leishmania is controllable and NOT life shortening if monitored correctly, I do need to take inexpensive medication to make sure that the disease stays dormant and under control. My rescuers are very knowledgeable on this leishmania disease which is not transmittable and they tell me not to worry at all because with blood tests twice a year to monitor treatment, I will live a long and happy life! A life that I would love to spend in a forever home with sweet human friends.
