A Cork dog whose owner sadly passed away is searching for his new ‘furever’ home.
Last week CARE Rescue Cork issued an appeal on Facebook looking for a foster home for Mario, a small mixed breed dog. When Mario’s owner passed away, he was suddenly left without a home.
As a temporary solution, the neighbours took him in but Mario is unused to cohabiting with other dogs and CARE Rescue Cork are seeking to make other arrangements.
“Mario's owner has sadly passed away and Mario has no place to go. He desperately needs a foster home to mind him while he waits for a forever home," they said.
"We can't take him into our care until we have a foster. We don't know much about Mario. He doesn't seem to like dogs and can be stubborn. He is probably very confused right now after losing his human. Mario will need an experienced foster home without kids or other dogs. We know it's a big ask but if you think you can help Mario please message us. Secure garden is required.”
On Thursday, September 5, CARE Rescue Cork visited Mario and identified the breed as most likely to be a Pomeranian mix.
Speaking to The Echo, they said: “Mario is very friendly with people. He is lead trained and house trained. We are getting his vet work done next week so he will be neutered, chipped and fully vaccinated. He wants to live as an only dog. He is fine passing dogs but he can be territorial around food and his bed with other dogs.”
