I was around 11 years old when I went on a walk one day and noticed a dog wandering around the streets. I started following him, and after a long chase finally caught him and my parents took him to an animal shelter. However, the owner didn't reclaim the dog within a certain period of time, so my family adopted Turre. He was maybe 1 or 2 years old back then. He was a lot of trouble.. He ran away whenever he got the chance, so many times we went looking for him around the town. I guess the problem was in the previous home and lack of training. It wasn't nice taking him for a walk, because he pulled the leash all the time and went too close to people and their dogs. Sometimes he tried standing up against people. When Turre ran away he went to see children, so he was a nice dog in that sense. The dog was never trained so well, and in the end there was no one to take care of him.
