A video by Animal Diaries which started making the rounds last week tells the story of Falco, an abandoned Maltese dog stuck at Animal Welfare for the last 4 years. Falco is hoping to find a loving home, just in time for the Christmas season.
A pitbull-mastiff mix, Falco might look like a tough nut to crack, but is actually a gentle beast. At nearly seven years old, Falco has spent over half of his life in pens. A couple of years after growing up to be the dog he is today, he was abandoned by his first family and found by Animal Welfare in a poor state. After some time in the pens, he was adopted by another family… only to be later found again, abandoned and in a poor state.
An energetic dog with a lot of love to give, Falco is a very friendly dog… something which definitely comes out in the just over two-minute video.
“He deserves to be with a family this Christmas,” Animal Diaries’ Maria D’Amato said. “He doesn’t deserve to be stuck on a roof or tied.”
The video has already been viewed 8,700 times, with more than 300 people sharing Falco’s story. People are already commenting asking whether he’s good with other dogs and cats, so here’s hoping that this year will be Falco’s lucky Christmas!
