Abandoned dog with disabilities left in front of tire shop

“Abandoned dog with disabilities left in front of tire shop”

In mid-February, tire repair workers Ozimar Queiroz and Lindomar Queiroz were taken aback when they arrived early to the tire repair shop on Estrada do Belmont, in the North Zone of Porto Velho. They discovered an abandoned dog by the roadside. This gentle creature was small, with open paws, and unable to walk.

Moved by the dog’s plight, Ozimar, also known as Galego, decided to care for the dog until a permanent home could be found. However, 20 days have passed, and the dog still awaits a forever family.

“They left him right in front of the shop. When we got here in the morning, there he was. We felt so sorry for him, so we brought him in and have been feeding him. But he remains in this tough spot. He can’t walk at all, as both his front legs are turned backward,” Ozimar explains.

Because of its position on the signboard, the dog was affectionately named Seal, as it cannot move due to its open paws.

The tire repairmen shift him around a few times during the day, but the dog finally ends up dragging himself in the mud to connect with the only animal company available, a stray cat that wanders about the tire shop.

Lindomar Queiroz told G1 that the dog is docile and in need of veterinary care, but he cannot afford it.

“We named him a seal, because of the way he appears. When we grabbed him, he was quite underweight, but he’s already becoming plump, since we’re feeding him. Due of the rain, he’s all muddy, but we can’t care here”, declares Lindomar.


The abandoning of the dog garnered repercussion on social networks and Foca has already been adopted by a couple from Porto Velho.

The tire repair workers who found the pit bull on the road took care of him for almost three weeks, giving him food and water. They first christened him “Foca” until Michele took him in and changed his name permanently.

“ That was love at first sight . His predicament struck me a lot. Already helpless, much more so, so docile and kind. I fell in love with him,” stated the economics student. “I love him. I have no other term. I love him, very much. Mother’s feeling.”
