Unfortunately, Lexie saw her sister killed and was then rescued and saved. In Romania Lexie needed to go to kennels which she hated. She lived for the visits of her rescuer Dana and cried when she went away.

After being adopted in the UK, this beautiful girl travelled for 3 days from Romania to her forever home – only to be handed back after 10hrs! I don’t think she was small enough or pretty enough….?

At just a baby when she was handed back, she needed to spend 3 nights in kennels which must have been terrifying for her again while we tried to find her a place of safety and arrange transport for her.

We were able to find an urgent foster where she has been assessed for the past 3 weeks. Given that Lexie would have been really traumatised by so many unfortunate moves, not once was she aggressive or snappy to the foster or her family or her dogs or the kennel staff.

Lexie may be small, but she has the heart of an ox, the spirit of a lion and the soul to forgive. She arrived at her foster home really scared but was never aggressive in any way. Apart from a small amount of anxiety initially, Lexie settled very well.

She sleeps all night in a crate (door open). She is fully housetrained – toilets outside! She walks beautifully on a lead and is learning what the outside world is like. – plods and doesn’t pull at all. Currently lives with 4 dogs with no concerns at all, so can live with a resident dog. Quite a lazy puppy, loves to be cuddled and LOVES human company as well.

Lexie can be left for up to 2 hrs at the moment although this is still work in progress. Ideally, someone who is home for large parts of the day would be best for Lexie. She is NOT cat tested although the foster says she does not have a have a high prey drive at all.

Lexie is still a baby so is not neutered. She is fully vaccinated and has all of her paperwork and passport.

All of our dogs come from Romania and have spent time with our Romanian rescuer either in their home or in suitable kennels until adopted. As we are a small rescue we have only a few dogs in foster in the UK, most are direct adoptions from Romania to the UK.

We offer support throughout the whole process as well as after the dog has arrived which is the most important time of all.

We do not adopt to families with resident children under the age of 7yrs. and try where possible to cat test out dogs. Please note, all our dogs have comprehensive blood works as well as being fully vaccinated/microchipped and registered to the new owner.

We also neutered/spayed responsibly and provide full post adoption support. Home check/application form apply as well as telephone/video call.
