Their Rescue Story:

In the early hours of Saturday morning (22.01.22), Carmen had 5 puppies dumped on her doorstep ��
Carmen’s son, at 7am in the morning opened the gate to get his car out and when he was about to close the gates he heard puppies… he shouted to his fiance in the car, she got out and used the flashlight on her phone, and there they were inside a transporter crate, they rushed them inside the house.
Inside were 5 girls, riddled with fleas�.
We are completely full, but we can’t leave them! Who else would help them? They would die if we didn’t take them in.

They are now living at Ioana’s pit stop & receiving their vaccinations �

At Sirius Animal Rescue:

At Sirius we have 2 ‘pit stops’ in Romania, one in Capusu- Ruxi lives here on site, and one in Berindu, Ioana lives here on site.
Some dogs have to go into a foster home within Romania for their vaccination period as we can’t take unvaccinated dogs due to the high risk of parvo.
At each site there is between 50-100 dogs, all living freely together on our secure land, they eat, sleep and play together. All our dogs are dog friendly unless otherwise stated, our dogs can also be cat tested on request if not already tested.
Our dogs mainly live outdoors, sometimes coming into the house, so ALL basic training needs to be trained once adopted.
We try to socialise our dogs with humans as much as possible by carrying out volunteer days where families with children come to interact with them. Most of our dogs have never lived in a home environment,we try to prepare them as much as we can for this.
Adopting a rescue dog can be hard, it requires a lot of time, effort, patience and most importantly dedication to not give up and to help them overcome any issues that they may have.


Please be aware that weights of dogs are approximated and it is possible for them to grow bigger or smaller than their given approximate weight. It is very rare that we know parents of the puppies and they are mostly underweight when rescued.
We try to give an estimate to the best of our knowledge given their current size/age, but it is almost impossible to give an accurate estimate, please make sure you are aware and prepared for this before adoption.
Here are the size guidelines we use:
XSmall- upto 10KG
Small- 11-15KG
Medium- 16-25KG
Large- 26-35KG
Xlarge- 35+ large breed experience required

  1. Hello
    I’ve been looking for a small rescue dog & I just saw Betsy….Is she still available, I’m in the u.k. ( London) I now live alone with front & back secure garden, I’m nearly 50 years old & always had dogs ( mostly rescue dogs ) I’m home all day everyday & have plenty off time & patience to put into settling/ training my new furbaby,
    Our family dog who was 16 years old a staffy called Cassie passed away last year & a few months before that I lost my husband off 29 years so the last 18months I’ve been grieving & I’ve since moved into my now home so I can have my own garden. But I don’t have a dog to enjoy it with & bcs I do have so much time on my hands I would love to immerse myself into helping rescued dogs, from fostering to having my own personal dog & when I do get a dog I’d still want to foster, the area I now live in has so much green spaces from nature reserves to royal parks…Richmond & Bushy park are very close & I have hanworth common within a 5 minute walk so many great places for dogs to explore & enjoy & I’m now ready to welcome a new furbaby / companion in my life & I can give a loving, safe forever home to a dog needing one.
