This is Abeja (Bee in English). (My mom likes to name the dogs she likes so that they feel like they are loved and someone looks out for them.) Abeja is a little dog that lives in the streets of the Colonial Zone. The locals call these street dogs Viralatas.
Abeja is a female and lives in Parque Colon, Zona Colonial most of the time. She can also be seen wandering up and down Calle el Conde. On the Map of Colonial Zone is it number 49 and 8.
Abeja is very friendly. She loves it when my mom pets her. She puts her paws right up on my moms legs to get as close as she can. She also loves her tummy scratched. It looks like maybe she has had babies once, poor girl. She is a small – large dog (if that makes sense because she is a small sized dog but on the large end but not big enough to be considered as a medium sized dog, get it?). She as really pretty eyes that are a sort of green color. She has a scratch on her side that is almost healed. It was pretty bad when she got in but she tended to it well.
Abeja lives in the street but my mom and I both think she would make someone a very nice house dog. She is so loving and friendly. She seems to be young so I am sure she can be easily trained. She is a little bit thin but I am sure she would fill out in no time with some good food and lots of love. My mom said if she could she would bring this dog home. My mom would bring all the dogs home if she had room.

Go to the ABOUT section and there is information on how to make a donation. Make sure to state it is for The Dogs of Colonial Zone or Los perros de la Zona Colonial.
