My name is Atish (AKA Home Depot). I was rescued from a US Government facility in Kabul by the nowzad shelter early in 2015. The people working at the facility had been taking care of me but one day when I showed up I had what appeared to be some sort of burns on my tail and back end, the burns were very deep and painful.
I was taken to the nowzad shelter and given pain relief and antibiotics before I underwent surgery to remove most of my tail. Since then I have remained free of infection but the small part of my tail that remains will take many months to heal as there was no skin on it, it is not causing me pain but I do have to wear the collar of shame all of the time.
I was pretty shy and nervous when I first came to the clinic, sometimes when no one is watching I do play with the other dogs, I have not been tested with cats but it is felt that with careful introduction I would be fine with a cat. I spend a lot of time just chilling out and I have learned that humans are actually OK and are not going to hurt me so I do enjoy cuddles with those that I know.
I will do well in a quiet family with another dog and no very young children.
Aside from my tail I am in good health with no known health problems. I am chipped, vaccinated and neutered.
