Dominique: all she needs is a lot of love and a little patience

Dominique is a young dog who was found on the streets and was brought to Amalia, one of our loving Spanish foster moms. Other dogs are no problem to this little brownie but people do need to have some patience with her. She suffered badly, that's clear, you can always tell - but once you've captured her heart she will follow you wherever you go, she will become your best friend! 

In stressful situations she still gets anxious and she dares to snap, out of insecurity, but never towards her master because he is her guardian angel. Dominique needs somebody who wants to put her on the right path, who wants to give her confidence in life. Somebody who understands her and is willing to give her time. 

She is still young, not yet four, so with a little bit of patience and a gentle approach she will melt. Where there is a will, there is a way. Who wants to take care of this little girl? She will be infinitely grateful! There's more information on her page.

Why on earth is Brody still looking for his golden basket?

Just look at him? Why on earth has this dear chap still not been adopted?

You don't notice him in a big group because Brody is an inconspicuous, young black doggie...a simple chap who clearly has inherited the good Labrador gens. He is playful and gets along well with the other dogs. We noticed Brody in the killingstation and we know by experience that black dogs are not in demand here. 

We took this young dog with us as quickly as possible because his life was in danger. He's been with us for three and a half years, since he was nearly 18 months old - no fault of his own, who knows why this lovely dog has not been adopted yet. 

He is currently in a lovely foster home in the Netherlands. But three and a half years is long enough. Brody is growing up; he's looking for a forever owner, as soon as possible. This chap has a lot of potential; he will surely become a loyal, inquisitive and affectionate mate for his new owner, 

For the fan of black who wants to give Brody a new chance to find happiness... please take  look at his information and lovely videos - here

Loving, loyal and intelligent. That's Brody.

Fabienne's Dog of the Week: Albabina

Albabina, now called Donna has been staying in the Netherlands for some time now. She is incredibly sweet and is doing very well.  The foster family has since taken in a second dog and Albabina gently welcomed it and accepted it. And she also saw it leaving for its very own home, its forever home. So now, who has a home for her?  This good girl deserves it! She's looking for a boss or a family who will enjoy walking with her. She listens well and is good with other dogs and will probably get used to cats. Will you visit her? Please do. She so deserves her own home. For more information please click here. You will read about the horrible start in life she had and how she has responded to the love and care from her first forster mum in Spain, Isabeleke, and from her Belgian foster home.

Sharmi - sweet, gentle - after two years, she so deserves a forever home

The latest update for our sweet Sharmi was dated 12th May, this year, 2017. This cute Sharpei lady, currently in fostercare in Belgium, is still waiting for a nice forever home. Good food (she really likes everything), a little love and a little walk - Sharmi doesn't ask for much. She loves people a lot and can't get enough of asking for hugs from anyone crossing her path. After all those years of neglect she is so grateful with some attention. She is also as soft as a bear and can look incredibly sweet so that you give in every time :) 

Sharmi is a sensitive soul and a consistent but gentle approach is necessary. She knows the basic commands like bowl, sit, wait and paw. She has already walked in a safe place, but she is comforatble around other animals, such as cats, rabbits or horses, and so far they don't bother her. She is fine on the flexilead. She's good with other dogs, as long as they are not too active or dominant. She does not like them to come into her personal space and snuggle up to her. 

With our chihuahuas she is amazing, very soft and tolerant. The smallest ones are really fond of her and can even sleep on top of her back. With other dogs she has an attidude that's something like "you leave me alone and I'll leave you alone". She just wants do do her own thing. Therefore she needs to be placed as the only dog in the family. 

Her body is sadly showing some signs of her terrible past. In addition to some scars, she suffers from chronic ear infections. This is now under control, but her ears must be cleaned regularly. Just a little cleaner or ointment in her ears a few times a week, no more than that. As if this was not enough, she also has a thickening of her mammary gland. At the moment, this remains stable and there is no reason to be worried. 

Who will take this treasure home and gives her the care and love she deserves? It's not Sharmi's fault she was born in the wrong place. This poor unfortnate really deserves the very best home!
