La China starb eine Woche nach dem Fotoshooting. Sie war eine liebenswürdige, aber sehr verängstigte Hündin, die ihren Schlafplatz nicht mal zum Essen verliess.

Enfermera is pictured at the Famproa dogs shelter in Los Teques, Venezuela August 18, 2016. Enfermera (Nurse) was given that name because she was rescued by a nurse outside of a hospital. "She suffered a stroke and although she never recovered completely, she is a very good guard dog. She lives outside of the shelter and when someone approaches, she starts barking," said Maria Silva who takes care of dogs at the shelter.

Enfermera (Krankenschwester) wurde vor einem Spital gefunden. Sie erlitt einen Schlaganfall, von dem sie sich nie ganz erholte. Trotzdem ist sie ein guter Wachhund geblieben und bellt, wenn Gefahr naht.

Cachorron is pictured at the Famproa dogs shelter in Los Teques, Venezuela August 18, 2016. Cachorron (Big puppy) was given his name because he never matured and behaves as if he were still a puppy. "He does not like to leave the area where he sleeps. Even if the door was left open, he would not go out in the street. On one occasion a family wanted to adopt him, but it was impossible to make him walk out of the shelter," said Maria Silva who takes care of dogs at the shelter.

Cachorron (Grosses Welpen) will nicht erwachsen werden und bleibt stets in seinem Käfig. Eine Familie hätte ihn gerne adoptiert, doch er wollte einfach nicht mitgehen.

Nazareth is pictured at the Famproa dogs shelter in Los Teques, Venezuela August 16, 2016. "She is both independent and feisty. She barks at all dogs and has a bad temper. When it is mealtime, no one can be near her," said Maria Silva who takes care of dogs at the shelter. REUTERS/Carlos Garcia Rawlins SEARCH "DOG LIFE" FOR THIS STORY.

Nazareth ist sehr unabhängig und oft schlecht gelaunt. Sie bellt alle Hunde an und lässt niemanden zu nahe an sich heran.

Gusaniao is pictured at the Famproa dogs shelter in Los Teques, Venezuela August 18, 2016. Gusaniao (wormy) was left almost dead in a box outside the shelter a week before being photographed.

Gusaniao (wurmig) wurde von Würmern zerfressen in einer Box ausgesetzt. Nach einer Woche Intensivpflege begann er zu essen und ist jetzt wieder gesund.

Mama is pictured at the Famproa dogs shelter in Los Teques, Venezuela August 18, 2016. Mama (mother) was given that name because she was left in front of the shelter with her puppies. "All of them were taken for adoption but nobody wanted to take her. Mama is old and almost blind so she does not leave the place where she sleeps and does not share with any other dogs," said Maria Silva who takes care of dogs at the shelter.

Mama wurde zusammen mit ihrem Nachwuchs vor dem Hundeheim ausgesetzt. Alle ihre Kinder konnten platziert werden, doch sie selber fand kein neues Zuhause. Mama ist sehr alt und fast blind und verlässt ihren Schlafplatz kaum noch.

Atro is pictured at the Famproa dogs shelter in Los Teques, Venezuela August 18, 2016. Atro was given his name for Atropelledo (run over). "A few years ago someone left him outside the shelter after he was hit by a car. He underwent several surgeries to try to save his leg, but it was not possible. Since then he has been very lonely, he does not like to interact with other dogs," said Maria Silva who takes care of dogs at the shelter.

Atro (von Atropelledo) wurde von einem Auto angefahren. Trotz aufwendigen Operationen konnte sein Bein nicht gerettet werden. Seither ist er sehr einsam und spielt praktisch nie mit anderen Hunden.

Pichurra is pictured at the Famproa dogs shelter in Los Teques, Venezuela August 18, 2016. Pichurra is very old and has been at the shelter for a long time. "She is extremely calm, never fights with anyone, nor does she bark. In fact, at mealtimes the volunteers have to be very alert, because if any other dog steals her food she would not complain," said Maria Silva who takes care of dogs at the shelter.

Pichurra ist sehr alt und seit Jahren im Heim. Sie ist extrem ruhig, streitet sich nie – und nicht mal, wenn andere Hunde ihr Essen klauen, beklagt sie sich.

Cucurucha is pictured at the Famproa dogs shelter in Los Teques, Venezuela August 16, 2016. She has never been given up for adoption because she is very nervous. When someone approaches, she begins to whine and react immediately. She never fights with anyone, but she likes stealing food from the other dogs," said Maria Silva who takes care of dogs at the shelter. REUTERS/Carlos Garcia Rawlins SEARCH "DOG LIFE" FOR THIS STORY.

Cucurucha ist eine sehr nervöse Hündin. Wenn sich jemand nähert, beginnt sie sofort zu jaulen. In Kämpfe ist sie nie verwickelt, aber sie klaut anderen Hunden das Fressen.

Carita is pictured at the Famproa dogs shelter in Los Teques, Venezuela August 18, 2016. "She arrived at the shelter almost dead and completely covered with scabies, to the point that her face bled. Carita is very aggressive, attacks any dog who is close and during fights has killed several. So now she has to live locked in a kennel," said Maria Silva who takes care of dogs at the shelter.

Als Carita ins Hundeheim kam, litt sie unter Räude, einer Milbenerkrankung, und wäre fast gestorben. Carita ist sehr aggressiv und hat schon mehrere andere Hunde im Kampf getötet. Deswegen muss sie in einem zugesperrten Zwinger hausen.

Paton is pictured at the Famproa dogs shelter in Los Teques, Venezuela August 18, 2016. Paton (big foot), has been given that name because his legs are very long making him a little clumsy when he walks. "Everyone who comes to the shelter, falls in love with him because he is extremely loving, always happy and wants to play. He always wants to be near people," said Maria Silva who takes care of dogs at the shelter. REUTERS/Carlos Garcia Rawlins SEARCH "DOG LIFE" FOR THIS STORY.

Paton (Grossfuss) hat sehr lange Beine und wirkt deshalb etwas ungelenk. Alle im Heim lieben ihn. Er ist immer glücklich, in Spiellaune und mag Menschen.
