Despite everything she has gone through she truly is an adorable girl, with no aggression in her whatsoever. She is nervous of new people at first but once she has been given a little time and realises she isn't going to be hurt she jumps in there with so much love and affection, lots of kisses and a very obvious desire to have human contact. Her age, breed and size mean that she is full of energy and she has an amazing zest for life, and so will need an active family with room for her to play outside. Lilly is very nervous of very large dogs and would be better suited to a home where she is the only 4 legged member of the family.
Things looked up for this lovely family when a local rescue found them and took them to safety. They were covered in fleas and ticks which were treated straight away and for once they knew warmth and what it was like to have a full belly. Sadly though 3 of the pups were just too weak to survive and Greg lost some of his siblings. Just him, his sister Dharma and their mother survived.
Through the love, treatment and care they given at the shelter Greg, Dharma and Sabina slowly gained weight and strength. The mental impact of their life experiences took a little longer though. But, with time, patience and love the volunteers soon gained their trust and their wonderful personalities began to shine through. Every day they grew in strength and character .. and they began to show all the love they had to give, and all the mischief they had inside them !!
At the beginning of February Greg and his sister Dharma came to the safety of the UK. Their mother had found a forever home and now it was time for them to come to safety. The volunteers at the kennels in Vukavar had saved their lives but life is still hard there with so many dogs sharing kennel space and food. And so, they arrived at the kennels in Stafford.
During their time there they have flourished and shown what wonderful souls they are. Both were nervous at first and it took a little time for them to become confident around all their new friends but once they did their true selves shone through. Greg is very playful and really does like to play 'puppy' style, with all the zest for life and cheekiness that it brings with it. He is full of energy and will definitely need a home where he can let off a lot of steam. But, there is also the gentle and loving side of him who likes nothing better than fusses and cuddles.
