Day 093 - Destine

"Destine is the newest addition to our shelter. The poor boy came to us with quite horrific injuries. His rescuer found him wandering at a pasar malam (night market) and decided to take him in. Pardon the pun, but Destine is evidence of the dog-eat-dog world out there and the difficulties the weaker stray dogs face in struggling to
live. Destine is currently still trying to adapt to our shelter. He allows you to pet him but he remains distant. We are fervently hoping that with time, care and proper nutrition, Destine will recover and learn to adjust to shelter life. If the shelter is going to be his destiny, we hope to make it as comfortable as possible. Would you like to lend him a helping hand?" - Quoted from Gentle Paws' PDF file about the shelter's dogs.

Took this picture during the house-warming/opening of Gentle Paws. =) Destine was very calm and didn't like to join the others in rough play. Still very shy
