Pilino is a 2.5 year young Mix-breed, boy (Born Nov/2017) He arrived at Scooby on November/13/2017; From Vitigudino (Salamanca)
Pilino arrived at the shelter just as a few weeks young puppy…with his mummy PINA( adopted) and his brothers (all adopted) PILINO had to stay behind……
He is a sweet boy but scared of people, he expresses himself by barking …
Social with the other dogs. He is the son of Pina (adopted)
Pilino spend his whole life in the shelter…it would be so much better being in a calm loving Home, where he could feel safe and loved.

Update June/17/2019  from Ana Merino:    ” I´m making this post with not much hope,  but still making it…PILINO arrived 1 year and 7 months ago when he was not even 1 month old. His mummy Pina and his brothers and sisters left long time ago. But nobody wants PILINO… PILINO is scared of people.He comes close to us and even eats from our hands but touch him is almost imposible…If you watch the video you will see his first intention is run away;once he “surrenders” he is terrified when you try to touch him(he may even try to bite you) but after a while he relaxes a bit and allows your contact. It is obvious that PILINO needs a family not only with patience and a big garden but also with experience with traumatized dogs. Apart from this PILINO is very sociable and loves being with his doggy friends ; very curious and active; happy in his own way. In Scooby I have learned that you must never surrender; that miracles exist. So I make this post…

Part I ( sept/29/2019 ): You may ask what this ” Well, it’s something that we’ve been wanting to do for a long time, and it’s great news for us to finally be able to start as there are many months of work and effort behind it.
Surely many of you are aware of the large number of dogs that we have with difficulties to get adopted. Mainly dogs that find it hard to build a relationship with people; ones that barely had any human contact or if they did, it’s been negative. This logically makes their adoption very difficult. The project got its name from one of these dogs, called Pilino ( the one in the first picture) He arrived very young and although he has improved since and aren’t so afraid, he still cannot easily go into someone’s house.
After thinking hard on the subject we decided to free up two patios to create a very large new one where we will build small enclosures.
The plan is to house one unsociable dog in each, together with one that’s sociable and with whom they get along so as to make it easier to approach them and work on their rehabilitation, and because living with a friendly dog ​​will help them progress as well.
We are currently starting with the work and we wanted you to get to know this project because we’re going to need volunteers who could commit to help with it. It’s a very important task as this may be the only way out of the shelter for many animals. Those willing to help us in this mission will receive training from an expert.

Part II : Do you remember the Pilino project? A new project to help the fearful dogs in the shelter?
As we continue working, the new yards are being built, and as soon as the first ones are finished we will move the first dogs to help them in their rehabilitation ☀️ We need doghouses for this project; We are looking for people who know and want to help us build them,(materials if we have) and also people who want to donate any house they might have and no longer use.
If any of those are true in your case, get in touch with us through Facebook.
If you’re interested please contact us through the following email: voluntarioscooby@gmail.com
We will keep you informed on the progress of this project on (Protectora y Santuario Scooby – Home | Facebook )

Part III ( Oct/18/2019 ) : 3,2,1 … NOW! Start Pilot Operation!
In previous episodes or post, we told you that we were launching a project to recover dogs with fear.
Our idea was to make smaller yards to get closer to these dogs and socialize them.
Well … the yards are almost finished, and we are already working on the booths.
Last Sunday, Pablo, an excellent trainer, gave us some guidelines, to a group of volunteers and workers, to be able to work more effectively with these dogs. Operation iPilino is underway .
If you want to be a participant and help those dogs who have the most difficulties… please get in touch with us : supervisorrefugio@scoobymedina.org
