Cleopatra was abandoned on the street like so many hounds.

Shegot very sick, hungry and cold. She is by nature a slim, very short coated dog, and the misery combined with her art made her a shadow of herself.

In appearance only, not character. Cleopatra never lost her character.

She never stopped wagging her tail, even when she was skeleton and about to collapse.

From her clinical picture she seemed to be dying, from her behavior and mood she seemed ready to run in the mountains.

Cleopatra is an incredibly strong dog. Strong as an organism and strong mentally. She's not afraid of anything, she's not stopped by anything, she's incredibly cheerful and incredibly sociable.

It took a long time to gain weight and look healthy, but she managed it. 

She is sociable, she is a dog with confidence and personality, very balanced and cooperative.
