street dog, sweet dog
Two of our friends were the talk of our Managua neighborhood last year when they adopted a skinny street dog and helped her become a lovable household pet. The local neighborhood guys called her cucaracha (cockroach) and thought the couple was crazy for taking her into their home. After feeding her, getting her healthy, and patiently loving her, cucaracha was reborn as Tila. Tila is a sweet, happy, slightly shy and very friendly dog.
