Matteo is a medium to large 2 year old male Cross-Breed. He was brought to the UK recently by a private adopter.

Unfortunately they were ill prepared for a dog direct from a Romanian shelter and did not have the experience needed to help him adapt. After escaping their garden he was trapped by a trapping time and the adopter didn’t feel that they could take him back and keep him safe.

Since arrival in our experienced foster home Matteo has already displayed what a cracking dog he is. He is now lead trained, toilet trained and accustomed to being in a home environment.

Matteo is very affectionate to those he knows and trusts and a real cuddler. He enjoys the company of other dogs and will need a confident dog in his new home. He is starting to really enjoy his walks now but still lacks confidence if people or cars pass by so his new family will need to help him gain experience and overcome those fears.

Matteo fostered Norwich Norfolk.

Fences and gates must be 5ft min & secure.

Please note that it is Safe Rescue policy that all dogs adopted from us must wear a slip lead to be walked for the duration of their lives. Too many dogs are lost from slipping out of collars and harnesses and many of our dogs are timid due to past ill treatment and likely to panic whilst out and about. It is absolutely okay to use these things additionally to slip leads but not instead of. We also request that extendable retractable leads are never used on our dogs. If you are opposed to slip leads, please do not enquire about our dogs as this is not negotiable. Thank you for understanding. All dogs have to be collected and a crate must be used.

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.
