Rescue Me ID: 17-12-08-00256Rosa (female)

Beagle Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Rosa appeared near some houses in the Greek countryside, most likely abandoned because she did not perform as a hunter (very common in Greece). A woman living at one of the houses tied her up for fear she would bother their chickens and be shot by her husband. Since I live in that area, I went to check for a microchip (by law all dogs in Greece are required to be chipped, but it rarely happens). She had no chip, and was being kept constantly tied. I arranged for sterilisation and after for a foster home. She is a lovely dog, now accustomed to living in a house. For adoption in the UK, the passport and transport fee will need to be paid ... (Read More)by the adopting person. I have no affiliation with a shelter or charity and I cannot pay these fees. I simply want to help Rosa find a good home. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-10-28-00037MuTchee (female)

Doberman Pinscher    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected 

    A fine young DoberWoman is looking for her human. She is almost two years old, living in Athens, Greece, ready to start new life in a loving family. Today she is a lovely, spontaneous and energetic young 'doberwoman', who still needs a lot of work, but is ready for adoption. We rescued her almost a year ago in our neighborhood. She was kept on the balcony and roof, sometimes allowed to run free around. She was getting dangerous - harassing people and attacking cats. She is a very lightweight variety of doberman, tall, swift and gracious, almost flying. That means she needs a lot of space and at least an hour of running per day. She can be ... (Read More)walked free, unless there are temptations around (think cats...) After neutering she is less dominant than before, but if you want to be her human, you must be ready to give her a lot of time and love. Being mostly abandoned in her childhood, she now hates staying alone, at home or tied on the street. And she complains pretty loudly if it happens. She nicely goes along with other dogs, but smaller animals are no-go. Does not pay attention to birds, though. She is extremely friendly to all humans, including children. She has strong protective instinct, especially for kids. And she cuddles passionately. She is intelligent and loves learning new things. However, left without stimulation, she starts looking for entertainment herself. The ideal place for her would be a house with a large fenced garden, with one of two other big-ish dogs and somebody around most of the time. Regular activity (teaching her new behaviors, running, agility training) and company of others will make her happy. You will earn a magnificent dog beauty, warm-hearted and always ready to protect you and your family, whatever happens. But you have not only to love and understand her, but also to be strong enough personality to set limits for her. Quirks, peculiarities, work to be done: -- She is afraid of water: puddles, water splashed on the floor etc. She doesn't panic, but she refuses to go (which can be overrun, though). -- She adamantly tries to hunt cats. Our local cats are hardcore street muggers and they stand their ground, but any house kitten may have a serious problem. -- She obeys 'sit' command, at least for a while, but the rest of typical training is still to be done. In our circumstances we could not give her enough exercise, so the excess energy made more training impossible. -- She is quite a chewer. Absolutely needs some robust toys, her favorite being all kind of balls, also on a rope, pieces of heavy-duty gardening hose and plastic bottles. We think she may love motorbike tire hanging on a (steel) rope. What we managed to do: -- She is healthy, spayed and vaccinated. In good shape: 25 kG, ~64 cm high. -- She has chip implant and corresponding 'pet passport' with blank space for her new 'owner'. -- After short transition period she accepts new people as her leaders. -- And she got as much love as she needed to start recovering from the past and to become a happy (if a bit a handful) dog. Now, the rest is up to you... The text with more of her pictures: (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-10-13-00012Morley (male)

Lab Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Morley was found abandoned by his mother or previous owner when he was less than 2 months old. Since then, he has been an absolute joy, but I can only provide a temporary home. He is very loving and high energy, so he would be a great dog for a family. He is up to date on vaccinations and worming medication as well as flea/tick medication. He is also house-trained. All health records available. He also comes with a crate that is IATA certified for air travel.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Dog in Greece
    Dogs can make good pets in Greece if they match your IifestyIe. Dogs have a reputation for being "man's best friend" for excellent reasons. Dogs are wonderful companions. Many breeds, in addition to being affectionate, devoted members of the family, are useful working dogs and guardians. Most dogs form tight bonds with their humans, and need to be cared for like the valuable family members they are. But sadly, some owners do not live up to the responsibility and involvement it takes to properly care for a dog throughout its life. Dogs can become the victims of neglect or active abuse. Some dogs receive tender, attentive care from their owners, but no longer have a home after their owner passes away or experiences a major life event that makes him unable to keep his dog. There are many more dogs than there are homes for dogs, and dogs that are not spayed or neutered can accidentally produce large numbers of puppies, exacerbating overpopulation. For this reason, three to four million dogs, many of them perfectly healthy and wonderful animals, are euthanized in the U.S. each year.

    Many people get excited about owning a new dog, decide to get a puppy, and then pick one out at a pet shop or visit a breeder with a new litter. However, there are so many wonderful, friendly dogs in need of adoption, including puppies and purebreds. Some of these dogs might even be a better fit for a family than a new puppy; for instance, some adult dogs in need of adoption are already housebroken and obedience trained. Adoption is typically much less expensive than purchasing a dog. People who adopt dogs find the experience extremely rewarding, bond very closely with their dogs, and have the added satisfaction of knowing that one less animal has to be euthanized. If your family is ready for a canine companion, please consider adopting a dog!

lnteresting Dog Trivia Greece Fact Sheet
    All dogs, even cute little lap dogs, are ultimately descended from domesticated wolves. There are hundreds of dog breeds with extremely varied characteristics and sizes, from the tiniest teacup Chihuahua to the hugest Mastiff, but all of these breeds make up just one species Canis lupus familiaris and can theoretically breed with one another (although there can be practical and health related constraints.) Dogs are red-green colorblind.
