Their Rescue Story:
Their mother dog belonged to a man and another 15 dogs were taken from him as well. He’s feeding the dogs once a week because otherwise “they become lazy and they’re not helpful with the sheep”�. None of the dogs he owns have a dog house or access to water and food.
Tora (the puppies mum) who is a female, was mistaken by the man to be male and he kept her on a very short chain, without access to water or food at all. Around 2.5 months ago, she gave birth to 6 puppies and then he went to the guardian of the site to ask for a bag to drown the puppies and he wanted to hang the mum!!
The location is 500m from Pata Râr.
Their Mum weighs around 18-20KG, but we suspect they will be bigger than this.
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.
SIZING OF DOGS:
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
Xlarge- 35+ large breed experience required
