April Roundup!

With the end of lockdown drawing closer for the UK, the engines are starting again but in Romania, things remained as busy as ever this month. Here is some of our main news from April, if you missed from our facebook page:

- 6 days ago Gea picked up a poor pup who had been dumped. What can go through people's heads to just dump a pup, when you're all he's ever known? This boy has been left in the village for us to find. Someone said he's been wandering for a couple of days. People tend to leave dogs for us near to the village shop, which the team drive past daily.

He's safe now, receiving decent meals and some tlc. He's 4/5 months old.

- At the beginning of April we told you about the dumped puppies. Well another seven pups were found and came into our care. They were nursing from their dead mum, thank goodness someone kind in the village phoned us up...

They are safe and thriving so far - playing, eating, sleeping and pooping.

- You may remember Alex from our facebook page. Well look at the change in this boy, he is walking so well now. He is so playful too.He was dragging his back legs after being found at the side of the road. We think he was beaten and kicked so severely.

- And what about Django? Remember this boy? It's starting to get a little warmer in Romania after a long winter. Django will soon be able to feel the sun on his back. He was callously dumped with both eyes lost due to infection. Understandably he his wary of people but he just loves Ion.

- And finally Reuben. You might recall what an awful state this boy was in at first.

He was a walking open wound just like Hope. He's turned into a bit of a fatty! Just a little. His favourite thing is lolling in the grass with his cat friends.

- Rhu, in UK foster, Aberdeenshire 10 months. Some UK news, sadly the lovely Rhu came back to us at the beginning of the month and is for foster or adoption in Aberdeenshire. She is thriving where she is but needs a home where she can have more attention. She has limited opportunity just now to move forwards with new sights and sounds due to the remote location of her foster home. Her manners with her human carers and her dog family are impeccable but this is not to say she wouldn't be prone to a bit of guarding in a new environment. Applicants would need to be dog savvy to not let this arise again.

Rhu needs:

A country home, at least one other calm, friendly and active dog for confidence and leadership to continue to build on her training and self confidence, adopters with rescue experience an active home where she can enjoy new experiences in a positive way at her own pace
