Solo’s Journey from the streets of Beirut
Solo was an elusive dog, just 18 months old and a stray when he came to the attention of a group of good samaritans. They spotted him, searched for him, and then desperately tried to catch him in the streets of Ain el Remmeneh for over 3 weeks. He was finally rescued and brought into the care of BETA.
Solo is an extremely sweet dog. He’s been groomed here in Canada courtesy our friends at Pampered Paws. He’s very loving but a little disoriented at the moment. He has decided that Amy and Brent are his people, and gets vocal with a soft but attention-getting little yowl when they first leave the farm. He stops vocalizing within 20 minutes, but still wanders around for a while before putting himself to bed in a cozy corner. Like all the dogs in from Lebanon, he has a healthy appetite, and is at a great weight for his size. His curly coat is soft, and would look as cute grown out and maintained or kept in a puppy cut as you see here!
