A typical Greek hound, abandoned when sick with leishmaniasis on the streets, she was rescued by ZEIL back in 2014. Continue reading Rejected By Everyone, This Dog Finally Found Someone Who Loved Her For Who She Is
There is little to none we can do about dogs being returned. Basically, for me it’s about getting back the dog as soon as possible, because the last thing we want is to have them stay where they are not wanted. Continue reading Rescuer’s Reply To The Family Who Returned Adopted Dog
Love bites, love bleeds. 😛 Apart from the not so funny ways you can get hurt by your dog (bites etc ), there are always the funny, silly ways. After the first shock, the pain and the anger, you probably laugh (or at least you should – it is very unfair to punish a dog for hurting you accidentally) and let your friends make fun of you.

Arnie was spotted by E. in a gas station on the highway, about 65 kilometers from Athens, Greece. A calm, silent giant, looking at you with those huge, green eyes, but not approaching, thin, neglected and with a dermatological disease that made him scratch unstoppably.

Dog adoption can go from perfect to very bad. The worst thing is not having the dog just returned, but also changed. Unfortunately some dogs come back to us unrecognizable, and since the temporary owners will never be frank about what really happened, we only have the dog’s behavior to guide us through what went wrong.

I lived in that pink bubble for some years, until 2016 gave me a slap on the face and forced me into an “adulthood” I wasn’t ready for. Continue reading Rescue Dogs That Crossed The Rainbow Bridge In 2016
Dog friendship is something real – well, friendship is what we call it, for them it might be something more complicated (or less complicated), but dogs seem to make best friends with other dogs. Continue reading Dog Friendship – Do Our Best Friends Have Canine Best Friends?
Handicap animals are not to be pitted. They can’t survive on their own out on the streets, but can have a happy life in a home. Melinos survived, against all odds, and lived his nine lives to the fullest. He deserved to be remembered, and the video above is dedicated to his memory. Continue reading Handicap Cat Dies After Living His Nine Lives To The Fullest
Fostering is everything when it comes to dog rescue. There are things that can be accomplished in a shelter, but some issues – mainly behavioral ones – can only be resolved in a good foster home. Fostering is not just about temporarily placing an animal in a home, because there is no space available elsewhere, it is mainly about preparing a dog for his forever home, and if it is done properly, it can be life saving.
