This friendly old abandoned dog has made headlines in Colombia where he is the country’s most rejected potential pet.
Nine year-old Capellan has been viewed by 538 people in the capital Bogota, but has still not found a new home.
So in a bid to re-house him with a loving family, animal rescue workers have launched a dedicated campaign.
He was part of a pack of dogs living abandoned on the streets and as a result has had little contact with people.
Capellan has been treated by the District Institute for Protection and Animal Welfare organisation for a severe skin infection that left him bald and experts have had to help him integrate with humans.
Video footage shows Capellan looking fit and healthy as he is petted by an animal rescue worker.
Fabian Salazar, adoptions coordinator for the institute, said: “When he arrived to the institute, he did not have any kind of hair. Fortunately, the emergency vet group could treat him. It was not easy but he has recovered enough skin.”
The dog is described as a “quiet animal, good to live with any family” and “honest, [and] loving… he loves sharing and playing with other animals”.
However, despite the glowing references, the nine year-old has not been adopted, despite participating in 15 adoption events.
At the weekend, Capellan appeared an adoption event in Bogota, but still failed to prompt any interested from potential owners.
But the institute is still hopeful of finding a new family to give him love and company and has launched a special campaign to re-house him.
