Herbert – 9-10 year old male Cross-Breed

Herbert is a 9 – 10 year old crossbreed. During our visit to Romania in October, this boy struggled to the bars of the cage he was in, and laid his bony head in my hand despite being weakened by starvation. We had to save him. Herbert is in the UK now and his days of hunger are several hundred miles behind him. He has a few food issues but nothing too terrible. He is still thin but not emaciated. He has some bald patches due to an allergic reaction probably to fleas. He is a humble old man who loves everybody but will panic if he thinks someone is going to hit him, quite pitiful to see him cower and shriek whenever an arm is innocently waved around .

Herbert has been fine with my children, my cats and mostly all of the dogs though he is prepared to defend his food and his bed if he feels they are about to be taken away by another dog. Herbert is an old man now, probably between 8 and 10 years… he is a calm lad but not decrepit at all, he would still enjoy a little potter around the block I think when he has gained his weight and gotten used to wearing a lead.

We are a voluntary organisation with members from all over the world that have come together to help dogs in need, regardless of their location. To date we have helped dogs from Spain, Cyprus and Turkey but the majority of our work takes place in Romania where we have built up strong relationships with many dedicated rescuers before bringing the dogs to the UK and into foster care for rehoming.
