Sara – 7-8 year old female Border Collie Cross

Most of the dogs in Romania are either dumped on the streets, dumped in public shelters which are horrendous places, born on the streets having to fend for themselves and face all kinds of dangers. Starvation being the biggest, beatings, torture, being hit by cars or even killed for money. The streets are a cruel cruel place especially winter time. Some also suffer horrendous cruelty from so called animal loving owners and the lucky ones are taken to private shelters where they are looked after until homes can be found for them.

This is Sara taken to the Radauti shelter by the dog catchers, not known if she has had a family before. If she has had a home the shelter will be a huge shock to her system, it is cold horrid place especially winter time as there is no heating, and they have very little funds and resources. The staff have very limited time at the shelter and strive to do the best they can for these dogs but they need more, more love and affection. Sara will be sharing a pen with at least 50 other dogs, so fights do break out at meal times and the weaker ones get what is left if any.

Sara is a friendly girl and gets on well with people and older children, she is not so good with very young children, so children no younger than 7 would be advised. Sara like to be the top dog over the rest of the females she is in with, so either a home where she is the sole dog or with a submissive dog, Sara is food aggressive so needs to be fed seperately from other dogs, this is probably due to either fending for herself for so long or being in the shelter. Sara is a lovely girl that needs a loving family and she will give love in return. She is vaccinated to legal requirements for transport, dewormed, deflead, spayed, chipped and has EU passport.
