SUNDAY, 10 JUNE 2012

ADOPTED Leo, Male, approx 2 years old, needing forever home.

Leo was one of six siblings living on the streets in a residential area of Romania. Living as strays they lived on scraps of food thrown to them, and this is how workers at a nearby factory found it possible to poison them. Luckily all six survived having been found and very quickly treated after the poisoning.

The seven yound dogs were taken into foster care and one by one they have been adopted. But Leo is still waiting. He can be very shy at first, which isn't surprising considering in the early days they had no contact with humans. However, once he gets to know you Leo is very friendly and loving and enjoys playing as well as being petted and fussed.

The people at the foster care do as much as they can but they have to share their time between many dogs. Leo desperately need that very special forever home where he can get all the love and attention he loves so much...and also deserves.

Leo, is great with people, once he gets to know them. He is also good with other dogs as he is introduced to new ones regularly at the foster placement.

He is micro chipped, fully vaccinated and de-wormed and neutered.

ADOPTED Joy - Male, approx 4 years old, Terrier cross.

Joy was wandering the streets of Romania, under constant threat of being beaten, starving and alone. In 2009 he was found lying in agony with a fracture of the back leg. The good people who found him took him to the vet and after several operations the leg was mended and Joy is now completely recovered.

Since then Joy has lived in a shelter, spending most days in  kennel. The staff have no time to soend with individual dogs so it is a very lonely existence..that has been his life for 3 years. Often Joy is sad and tired, but when the staff do have to to spend with him his eyes light up and he becomes full of life and energy.
Joy desperately needs to have a forever home where he can feel like that all the time !!

Joy loves the attention of humans, loves to be petted and played with and is very much a peoples dog. He is alright around other dogs but can be a bit dominant with them.

Nero, it is not known if he has had a family before, he was taken to the shelter from the streets by the dog catcher. Life on the streets for these dogs is very dangerous indeed, they face starvation, beatings, being ran over, tortured or even killed for money, not to mention illness and disease.

 Nero is a friendly little boy who seems to get on well with every one, including dogs, cats and children, though a family with children over the age of 7 would be advised.

He is small to medium size so he would be suitable for the smaller home. Nero just wants to be loved and have that forever family.

He will be fully vaccinated, chipped and have a pass port ready to travel.

Mosu is showing some signs of arthritis in his back legs again not helped by the fact he spent most of his life outside and in the harsh winters too, but apart from that he is a happy healthy dog.

Mosu will be fully vaccinated, neutered, chipped and pass ported ready for a new home.


MONDAY, 11 JUNE 2012

ADOPTED Prince, male approx 2 years old.Shepherd cross.

.Prince and his brother Teddy are currently being looked after by residents in a neighbourhood in Romania. They are, if you like..communal dogs. However this is no good as a long term life for them and they so desperately need a forever home. On the streets they are at risk from dog catchers who would take them to a shelter. The type of shelters they go to in this way are horrendous places where dogs are not cared for or loved..and often not even fed. For the most part these dogs are just left to die.
Prince is about 40 cm tall and he is very athletic so will need a lot of excercising. He is very very friendly to people, including children and gets on with cats and other dogs. He shows no aggression and when set upon by some stray dogs in the area preffered to run away than to fight.
Prince has never lived in a house and may take some time to adapt and so would be best with experienced owners.
Prince will be vaccinated, neutered and micro chipped by July.


ADOPTED Skinny (aka Honey) 3 to 4 yrs old mixed breed medium size female needing a forever home

Skinny has spent most of her life fending for her self in a field in all kinds of weather.
Skinny was one of the lucky ones, a lady took her in and cared for her, Skinny is a shy dog who needs time to adjust.
She gets on well with other dogs and has yet to be tested to see if she gets on with cats.

Skinny will need an experienced owner who has a lot of time and patience. Skinny has been working with an animal behaviorist because of aggression issues, she did not trust people, but is making progress, she is now no longer aggressive, which of course was due to fear, but still very shy. We advise a family that has had experience with aggressive dogs and preferably no children or at least grown up children in the household. Skinny still needs a lot of work, she needs to learn how to play, give affection and to trust, she will go to people now but is still very shy and weary, but all of this will take time. Skinny still has a tendancy to run and hide from people, and needs time to feel secure and to know she is not going to be hurt or in danger, it would be best if her new owners had a garden with high fences and take her into the garden on a leash, until she feels secure enough to know she is safe. An experienced family with skinny is a must as she is still learning to trust people. Skinny has been in foster for a few weeks now and is starting to wag her tail and take treats from the fosterers hand. she will be fully vaccinted, dewormed and defleed ready for a new home.

ADOPTED Tara 5 yr old female Doberman cross needing a forever home

Tara was taken to a shelter by the dog catcher it seems her owner no longer wanted her, so it was either the shelter or a life on the streets having to fend for her self and fight to survive.

Tara is a very obedient dog and full of affection, she adores human company and likes to be around other dogs too. Tara is a gentle giant, she loves to play and is a happy healthy dog, the thing we can not say is if she has had contact with children so we would advise children of teenage years if she is to be adopted into a family.

ADOPTED - OANA: IB OANA 3 year old female shepherd cross medium size looking for a forever home

Oana was found by the road side with injuries to her leg and was taken to the Raduati shelter by the dogs catchers. She would have most likely died if she had not have been taken there, and probably not from her injuries but from starvation or being beaten as she would have been unable to defend herself with being injured.

She has recovered well from an operation for her injuries and is now looking for a home, shelter life is not the place for her, cold, open to the elements, in a space with at least 50 other dogs and only make shift kennels to sleep in.

They think Oana may have had a family before. Considering what she has been through she is a very friendly girl, enjoys human contact and gets on with the other dogs. Oana is fine with cats and children over the age of 7.

Oana deserves the right to a loving home and a family to care for her.

ADOPTED Goldie 14 months old German Shepherd male needing a forever home

Most of the dogs in Romania are either dumped on the streets, dumped in public shelters which are horrendous places, born on the streets having to fend for themselves and face all kinds of dangers. Starvation being the biggest, beatings, torture, being hit by cars or even killed for money. The streets are a cruel cruel place especially winter time. Some also suffer horrendous cruelty from so called animal loving owners and the lucky ones are taken to private shelters where they are looked after until homes can be found for them.

This handsome young chap was found on the streets, trying to fend for himself. Goldie was skin and bone, life on the streets is not a good place to be for the more experienced dogs, let a lone a youngster. Starvation, being beaten, tortured and even killed for money.

Thankfully Goldie is now safe in kennels and thriving, he is a playful happy dog, he gets on well with other dogs and enjoys human company too.

ADOPTED Marco - 1 year old male Greyhound Cross, crushed by a car by a miracle runs and plays as any other dog. In desperate need of a forever home.

Marco was hit by the car ( more than likely on purpose which is common place in Romania) that left him with serious injuries to is rear legs. he was actually quite lucky as in fact the car drove over his entire body but by some miracle only his legs were damaged.

One of the legs had a femur fracture and the other one the hip was crushed. He was left where he lay writhing in indescribable pain until he was rescued. Marco was operated on three times.  One for the femur fracture and 2 for the hip realignment.
An angel must be watching over this lovely dog as not only was he rescued and not left to die in agony like hundreds are each year, but considering his injuries  it is incredible that with the expertise of the veterinarian and Marcos determination to not give up, he still has use of both his legs.

He plays, runs and walk with no pain, and the only real way you can see he has been injured is he walks a little differently than other non injured dogs. ( Please see videos)

However we believe this makes Marco even more special. This brave young dog has been through so very much, yet still has the courage to go on and enjoy life, and his determination to walk and not allow his abuser to have taken his independence as he did try to take his life is just inspirational.

Marco is a lovely dog, he is tolerant and friendly with the humans, dogs and cats or any other creature in this world.

Considering the cruelty this poor dog has been forced to endure, it is incredible the humbleness and tolerance of this dogs character towards others. What is very clear with Marco is he has such great joy in his heart to still be alive you can see it in everything he does.

Currently he going through doggy training to make things as easy as possible for that wonderful forever family that welcomes him into their home. He is learning how to walk on a leash and is also doing very well on the house training side of things.
With a dog like Marco, we are hoping that a family as special as he is will see him and give him that chance and a happy life just as all dogs deserve.
Marco is:
Fully vaccinated
Has his very own EU Pet Passport

If you are that amazing family and have room in your heart and home for this one very special and inspirational boy, please contact our charity as soon as possible
