Jumbo′s Story

My name is Jumbo and sadly my story is so common in Cyprus…


My mom and dad's owner thought it was fine not to spay them and let them have puppies every few months... Well, one of these puppies was me... When I was about 2 months old, my parent’s owner gave me to her friend and I lived with him for 2 years, until my very own person decided he didn't want me anymore and contacted 2nd Chance Dogs to surrender me. He told them that he was now allergic to me. He insisted it was the organization's duty to take me in! Unfortunately, at that time they had no space and this freaked him out, even though they calmly explained to him that the center was overflowing. After 2 weeks he contacted them again, giving a different name, and said that he found a “stray dog” and insisted that they came to get me, as he wanted so badly to get rid of me... They explained to him again that they could not take me in, due to lack of space ...So the very next day he put me in his very expensive car and, after making sure there was no-one around, he tied me outside the 2nd Chance Dogs center. He abandoned me there in the heat and left…the man I considered my family for 2 whole years! Luckily for me, a volunteer found me just before I got heatstroke. Fortunately, everything was recorded on closed circuit surveillance and now they will pursue legal action against him.

I am now in the 2nd Chance sanctuary where I have already made friends and have people around me who love me!
