A – As most of the dogs are found abandoned it is highly unlikely you would ever know the full history of the dog.

A – Dogs in Romania are often abused by children too.  Often it is about what a dog can cope with.   Puppies mouth and nip – it is their way of communicating.  All too often this behaviour is described as being aggressive and has lead to dogs being placed in emergency foster, again letting the dog down.

A – All our dogs are Mixed breeds.  We often do not know the breed of a dogs parents.

A – In short the answer is no!  Pups are often found with no parents to give us an indication.  If mother is present we can only go on her size – the father may have been small terrier size or likewise could have been Great Dane size.  We simply can make a guess.  Size is also open to interpretation.  What one person may call medium, another may call small and another person may say large.  If size is important to you, you may be better looking at a rescue closer to home where you can meet the dog beforehand.


A – The dogs travel via a professional transporter.  The journey takes around 2 days although sometimes they do face delays.



A – Many of the dogs live outside and have never been in a home before.  You need to be aware of this and be prepared to give your dog patience and the training they need.  We will of course be there to support you.



A – A home check is the next stage of a successful application.  It is where we find out more about you and make sure you are fully prepared to take on the responsibility of a Romanian rescue dog.  We currently do the Home checks via video call due to the current Covid situation.  Your Adoption coordinator will be able to give you more details regarding this
