Branching out.

We have some fabulous news for all our supporters and Romanian dogs fans.
Love Underdogs have teamed up with our German partners BMT and from the 1st of October we will be funding together the running costs of a fabulous shelter and sanctuary in Osnabruck Germany. This shelter will be entirely dedicated to welcome dogs from the Victory shelter in Brasov.
This shelter is owned by a trust who has allowed us and BMT the use of the facilities. It has space for 60 to 80 dogs and about 200 cats. Love Underdogs is solely focusing on dogs whilst BMT will be taking care of the cats. The operation however will be managed by BMT and the CEO Karsten Pflucker is personally overlooking this fabulous project. The manager Judith also has great experience with Romanian dogs.
Some of you may recall that our own Bubbles already moved there (he is doing fabulous by the way!) and when BMT asked us if we were interested in participating in the project in order to help more dogs from Brasov, we were over the moon, as it fitted perfectly with our expansion plan.
We estimate that this project will allow around 200 dogs per year to be placed in Germany from Brasov Romania.
The second and very important advantage of the project is that we will be able to send some of our own underdogs, who have been with us a long time and are still without a family. It means that they will have access to much bigger accommodations, and get a fresh start somewhere new. We hope that BMT’s reputation and their gravitas in Germany will attract families for our dogs who are so wonderful but have not found a family in the UK despite so many appeals and so much exposure.
We will announce tomorrow night the first 5 dogs who will be going to Germany in October, should nobody offer them a home between now and then. We sincerely hope that some families will want to come forward for them before October, so we will give everyone a month’s notice. We would not want anyone to be disappointed after all!
The shelter will have by the end of the year (still under construction in parts) 12 sanctuary houses with attached gardens and 11 large adoption suites, indoor and outdoor, which can take around 5 dogs each. All dogs will be up for adoption but our long termers will occupy the larger accommodations with garden as they may take a little longer to have families.
We will announce transports from Brasov Romania to Germany on social media so you can follow the activity in Osnabruck on here too and for our German followers, you can share these wonderful dogs too
BMT Germany:

Starting at the top is one of the housing blocks followed by a typical play area and finally inside a kennel. I wouldn’t mind living there. 😀

It has now been decided who will be the five dogs to make the move to Germany as they have not had any luck in the UK. All five dogs have been featured on here, some of them multiple times.  Should anyone decide to adopt them before the October transport that would be great.
And finally, Marley.
These are all wonderful dogs but have just not attracted any interest here? I am sure they will do well in Germany. 🙂
I am particularly sad that Bumble didn’t get a home here, I have been tempted by him for ages but he has been assessed as needing to be an only pet.
Good luck to them all.

About Mick C Gorman

Slightly damaged old bloke who is plodding on with more than a little help from a great wife. I have been married for 36 years and have 2 grown up children. I did the usual thing and replaced children with dogs when the nest became empty, best thing I ever did (apart from getting married of course). Life has taken a few interesting turns so far but this Epilepsy thing beats the lot! I love lots of things but in the past have never really stuck with them long enough to be good at them, I am trying harder to be better at a few things rather than okay at loads of things. There is still plenty of time. :-D
