It was outside this gate guarded by two concrete dogs, where an emaciated black dog that looked hours away from expiring made a last ditch effort to find help. Luckily for this dog, the house belongs to a family of kind-hearted animal lovers.
A visit at Villa Paraiso gives a better picture of how Avery and his family love their dogs. New arrivals are greeted by a cacophony of barks and wagging tails from dogs that have a free run of the house.
“I have always been a dog lover. So is my family,” said Filipino-Irish Avery while letting Raven sit on his lap.

“She is now quite chubby,” said Avery with a smile. “But she is our sweetest dog.”
