Mandra is a wonderful gentleman who has just arrived from the shelter in Crete. Mandra was always calm and well behaved in the shelter, he would watch from a distance, never really fought for attention. Just chilled and quiet. Over the year as dogs have left we now get to see the adult dogs and those who, maybe, we have not noticed before. Mandra is one of these souls, he deserved his chance but never fought to get to the front.
We saw him and now he is in the UK we see what a special boy he is. Such a calm, loving boy, easy, clean, good on walks. Just a perfect boy.
Mandra has only known life in a shelter, so his new family will need to be prepared to allow him time to adapt and settle into UK life.

Our foster home has provided the feedback below:
Dogs name: Mandra or affectionately known as Manny - approx 5yrs
Manny has only just arrived into foster with us, but on meeting him you would think he had been here his whole life if were not for the occasional look of confusion, he is a gentle soul and has settled in so well. I’m sure he can’t quite believe his luck but there is no reason to keep in in foster he really is ready to find his forever home.
Where does Manny sleep at night?
Manny has the free run of downstairs with my own dogs and chooses to sleep in the kitchen and my two female dogs head off to the utility room. He is quite happy to be separate from them.
How is Manny with current pets?
Manny has no issue living alongside my two large female dogs he is happy to cohabit with them, he has not shown any interest in sleeping with them, playing with them or their toys as yet and is quite happy to receive treats and eat alongside them. Manny has not yet been cat tested but so far shows no signs of a high prey drive.
Is Manny clean indoors?
We have had one accident on the first night but otherwise Manny takes every opportunity to toilet outside.
Can Manny be left alone?
Manny is a well-rounded chap and certainly has no issues being left in the company of my own dogs. He has yet to be left completely on his own however he is quite confident and independent enough to take himself off to bed alone into another room or outside to lay in the sun with no need to be near people or the dogs all the time so I do not envisage there being any issues.
Is Manny out on walks?
Manny enjoys his walks alone and in the company of other dogs. He likes a good sniff, he is keen to explore and enjoy life though he doesn’t wander far from your side. He has a lovely stride with his tale up. He is aware of traffic but it does not really bother him.
How does Manny walk on the lead?
Manny is super on lead, he is enthusiastic and currently walked on a flat collar and lead and a slip lead just for security. Manny walks well at my side does not pull and will go ahead to explore on an extendable lead when allowed. My 10 year old son had no issue handling him on a walk. Once Manny has built a relationship with his new family he will be no issue off lead.
Has Manny met other dogs?
As well as living with my two, Manny is a polite boy and has passed and met several dogs out on walks as well as walked with friends and their dogs. We have had no issues whatsoever.
How is Manny with humans?
Manny is good with people and is quite delighted to see us in the morning he loves a grooming session and any affection on offer. Manny has a thick double coat so he will require brushing as part of his routine to help remove the dead hair. Manny is particularly fond of anyone visiting the fridge - especially if they emerge with ham or cheese he has discovered my sons are quite good at this!
Have you noticed Manny is afraid of any particular things?
As yet we have not found anything that Manny is really afraid of. He is a quietly confident chap and will just move out the way and back off things like the hoover if he is unsure.
Any other useful information?
Manny is a gem, a really well adjusted chap considering the struggles and stressful life he must have had up to this point. Manny is calm and gentle and now needs to be taught that a little exuberance is okay and that he can really enjoy life, I’m sure with time an a nurturing family this will come. Manny certainly isn’t shy just a little more considered with his actions initially. Manny would be happy in a family with or without another dog but it’s clear he really craves a good bond with a human companion and plenty of good walks in the countryside.
