Jony has Leishmania and needs a pill per day



The adorable beauty

Hi, I am Jony 


I was found at the streets after my owner abandoned me. Maybe it was because I wasn't too good at hunting, maybe it was because I had leishmania. I don't know why really, all I know is that now there is nobody who will cuddle with me and nobody who I can give gentle kisses to.

That's about everything I want to do. I was born in 2016, so Im quite young still, but Im not super energetic. I like to stroll down the road in an easygoing pace and I love to stop and smell the flowers all around. I do love food and I love other dogs, there are so many new friends here at the shelter and I wish I could play with them all! 

But mostly I love people. I love to curl next to them, wag my tail so hard my whole body shakes and kiss them all over their face as they giggle! I promise to be a good girl, could you maybe look past my illness and give me a chance?
