I got some pictures today of when Annie was rescued in Romania. 😦
As much as her rescuers loved Annie, they have so many dogs to care for they couldn’t possibly have the time needed to rehabilitate all of them without volunteers, both in the UK and Romania. We foster so we can help in the process of moving dogs like Annie from the streets to a home.
Enjoying her nightly dried tripe.
Even sulking after her tripe has ended she still looks oddly contented. 😀
And a few of my previously posted favourites…
We don’t have magic powers or special training skills, all we have is love, patience and time (plus our secret weapons, Indy and Hamish. :-D) It has taken 3 months so far but Annie is genuinely relaxed at home and on her walks, she rarely startles and is happy to be near people just so long as they don’t acknowledge her. When her forever home comes along she will be equipped to cope with the change and will soon love her very own pet people. 🙂
If you are able to help a rescue dog in any way at all, I would say “just do it” it is very rewarding. Donations, volunteering at kennels, dog walking, fostering or adopting, all are needed the world over. If you are in England, don’t overlook Love Underdogs, they are great. 🙂
