Balkan Underdogs – Zule needs a new foster home by Friday

Meet our affectionate boy called  Zule, he urgently needs to find new foster quarters by this Friday ? can any one help this boy please ?

Zule2

Zule Zule - dog for  a loving adoption

  • Vaccinated,
  •  Not neutered,
  • Microchipped,
  • Approx 2 years old (Jan 2015),
  • In UK foster in Farnham – Surrey

Zule - dog for adoption

His story: He was rescued from the streets  of the Balkans by one of our lovely volunteers.

Zule arrived with his UK foster family mid January 2015 after being in Balkan kennels  for nearly a year  and has proved to be one of the most affectionate dogs they have ever met.

He loves to shower his family with kisses and cuddles all the time.  Its early days for lead training for Zule but he is enthusiastic and so it will soon pay off !

Zule would be well suited to family life but as yet has little experience with very small children and care would need to be taken for a proper introduction and handling in case Zule becomes overwhelmed.

He is small to medium in build and approximately 2 yrs old now – he is just the perfect  well behaved, happy little soul.

He was vaccinated and microchipped before travelling to the UK.

If you are interested in adopting Zule and want to know more about the process please email us at balkanunderdogs@gmail.com

Eight dogs needing sponsorship funding – March 2015

Balkan Underdogs have strived in February to rescue more dogs from yet another kill centre that has started to visit towns in the region and now even more street dogs are at risk .

The image below is of dogs who can hopefully be offered safety very soon once there is room.

Kill shelter FEb2015Our kennels are now full and we are working closely with other rescues to ensure as many dogs as possible receive help.

We rely on contributions from generous individuals to raise the funds needed  to secure their release and then to keep our dogs safe in kennels until it is their turn to go to a foster home or an adoption home.

Please sponsor me …

These are 8 of our dogs that urgently need funds to remain safe in kennels without which they are likely to be returned to the streets and to the risk of the dog catchers, cold and hunger. and risk being caught and taken to the kill centre.  Please help us prevent this even if only with a small donation on a monthly basis if you can full or  part  sponsors are kindly received.

To sponsor a dog please make a donation to our fund with one of the methods detailed below and our volunteer admin team will acknowledge receipt and if you are on facebook and join the Balkan Underdogs Community page  you will find more pictures of these dogs along with all our other dogs in our photos and albums.

For the love of Ellie

Ellie as a young pupWe’d been following Balkan Underdogs (BU) page for some time and had seen theirs and other stories of the appalling conditions for the  street dogs in the Balkans. When we made the decision to adopt a dog we were in no doubt it would be one from BU as we had previously spoken to people working with the charity and also people who had already adopted a dog through them. The desperation of the dogs and what they had been put through broke our heart, and we knew we wanted to make a difference to at least one dog’s life, adopting from here you really are saving a life, they just cannot survive there without help. We could see the hard work and kindness put in by all the people involved in the charity and we just knew we would have 100% support.

We spotted the perfect dog for us

We were looking through pictures and came across a beautiful black dog named at the time as ‘Kloi’  with a white chest and big ears and we instantly fell in love but I was sure she would have already been reserved already so I picked up the phone and excitedly messaged BU as I didn’t want to lose the chance of adopting her.

Ellie in her kennelI was soon informed that Kloi had been waiting nearly two years to be noticed, her whole life spent in kennels, those now familiar blue bars from the other side of which we first saw her face looking out, never knowing real warmth, comfort and love.  Now however, Ellie was already in the UK in kennels having been brought here just a week before we noticed her by her kind sponsor who had donated funds to keep her safe in kennels all her life. This meant that instead of the 4 – 6 week wait we had been anticipating that would allow her vaccinations, passport and travel to be arranged – it meant that Kloi could be at our door in just a few days  carefully transported by kind  BU volunteers.

Ellie ahd her siblings had only ever known kennels since being rescued as small pups

Ellie and her siblings had only ever known kennels since being rescued as young pups

They really were amazing. We were so nervous but asked loads of questions on the adopted group and got so many useful hints and tips,  everyone really wants to support each other.

We’d already decided to rename her ‘Ellie’ and she suited the name really well. When she finally arrived, we instantly loved her and she was absolutely beautiful, everything they had described.  From the outset she was so  loving, jumping into our arms and very inquisitive.

When the volunteers left we took her on a walk first,  to help get her calm before introducing her to a house which she had never seen before. She was brilliant on the lead we couldn’t believe that she didn’t pull at all. We had her bed ready, some toys, brought some nice food and treats for her to enjoy.

Introducing our home to Ellie – not the other way round…

We brought her into the house on her lead and introduced her room by room so she was not overwhelmed. She seemed to take everything in her stride. We then let her off and she had a good sniff around, suddenly in the kitchen she was stood still next to the counter and she just sprung right onto our high kitchen top, we couldn’t believe it, we checked for springs attached to her paws but none were there –  she has since learned not to do that anymore!!

The first night was difficult, she was confused and did cry a bit but we let her find her own spot and she did settle. In the morning I think she thought she just had a good dream and when she saw us and realised she hadn’t she looked so happy. And then she discovered the sofa, two months later and it’s still where she spends her days, it’s her true love. Ellie sunning on the sofa“When Ellie wakes up we can still see the disbelief in her eyes that this is life now”

Whilst sleeping she has the habit of gently grunting and getting comfy,  she sounds just like a human – but we put this down to her teenage years! A week after having her she was dreaming and suddenly her tail just started wagging like never before and it made us so happy to think what her dreams are now filled with that they had replaced the nightmares from a former life and now she always looks so content and cute  when she’s snuggled in.   Ellie and her toys

Getting over a few hurdles

We can’t deny that there were some difficult times during the first month, our biggest being her separation anxiety, she would howl when we left, we think she thought we wouldn’t come home. It was a difficult time as it broke out heart but we did persevere, we both have full-time jobs and needed her to feel ok with it.

Again we asked for support from the group, advice about the best way to go about it. A lot was about being top dog, so we looked online too and found great advice. We also found toys such as Kongs and things with our smells on to be left. When we were with her we spent a lot of time training, eating first, ensuring she followed house rules and it really worked a treat. What I can say about these dogs is they only want to please, as long as they know what you want and its clear they will try their best. It was so sweet to watch as she learnt what we needed she adapted and vice versa, we watched what she wanted from us and adapted to form a perfect little family pack. We can now leave her and she is absolutely fine. We come home to a sleepy dog, still stretching and yawning before giving us a cuddle.

Ellie on the sofaThe other slight issue was toilet training. We had read plenty of tips online and followed them step by step. It would seem to work and then the next day a lovely present in the spare room. We knew she had never had a home and this would take time so again it was just patience (even when we thought we couldn’t be) we ignored what was left in the house; unless we caught her doing it then it was a no and carried outside. We watched her 24/7 and soon learned signs she needed to go so it was outside with her until she did it and so much praise people nearby may have though we were crazy but it did the trick within 3 weeks completely house trained and if she needs to go in the night (unusual now) she will cry to let us know. She really has shown us she is a smart learner !

Life is now so much happier with Ellie in it !

Ellie in the sunshineAll the problems above paled in into insignificance compared to what she brings to our life and home.  We never cease to be amazed at what a wonderful  dog she really is, in her first month she was toilet trained, knew every house rule, sit, give paw, wait, up, down and trained recall to the whistle. Truly intelligent and so responsive. She can be a lazy so and so, spending most hours in the day on the sofa sleeping but we don’t mind that after all she has been through.

She loves being out and about on a walk, she’s such a runner, we take her up into the moors and she runs miles and miles in seconds bouncing around, so happy. Other times  we take her into the woods where she likes to chase birds (and attempt to hunt – very unsuccessfully) but she loves chasing! You can just see her smiling. She great on a walk never going too far and always coming back to check in on us. She hates water though, even rain, she starts running if she feels it falling on her, we think she thinks she can out run it! She’s even fallen in the river before, too busy chasing something and not looking where she’s going !

Ellie on the moors“Her poor face looks so sad when she’s wet, but a nice warm bed next to the radiator always cheers her up after a cold walk out”!

Ellie is brilliant at caring for others  …

There was a time that we were looking after another female dog who just couldn’t settle, Ellie kept pushing against her gently and going to her bed again and again, until the other dog settled in her bed. We could see Ellie showing her it was ok and it was amazing to watch.

Ellie at Xmas“She still looks at us like she is the lucky one, but she has no idea that we are. We didn’t know there was a hole in our hearts until she filled it, we didn’t know there was joy missing from our lives until she brought it, we didn’t know our home was incomplete until she completed it”.

If either of us are ill she won’t leave our side, she truly tries to look after us too. She’s so gentle with our Nieces and Nephews who come round, she loves children. She senses who likes dogs and who doesn’t, she will not push those that are nervous  and she is just so gentle. My Niece who is terrified of dogs  is now always telling me Ellie is her “most favourite dog who makes her brave.”

Our happy shiny future

When she first arrived although she had been cared for as much as possible  without  the care and attention of a home so  her fur was  quite thin and she was a little underweight. Now she shining, her fur black, much thicker and glossy, like silk. People are always commenting on how healthy she looks. It’s such a rewarding feeling seeing her look better each day. On walks people comment and this is absolutely true that she is the nicest natured dog they have ever come across. The list of amazing traits she has and things she does goes on and on, I don’t think people would believe us but she really is the perfect dog who has so effortlessly been placed perfectly into our life.
To watch in her eyes how much she wanted to please sometimes made us feel so sad.

“If anyone is unsure about adopting from here I would say please do. I was so nervous but after doing it I can say it’s worth it. Knowing you’ve truly saved a life. Every worry you have is normal but I’ve learned every dog is different, all the hints and tips out there but when you get them you’ll just know what to do as well. All the planning we did but it was Ellie who really did the work, trial and error with each dog, they all respond differently and learn in their own way and trust me you will have your perfect dog”.

Malinas Milestone – ready for a home of her own

Malina has just turned 2 yrs, her past is unsure but left her terrified and traumatised but in her foster home she has blossomed into a very affectionate, playful little girl, Malina deserves a patient home where she can continue to learn to trust humans again.

malina

Malina before – timid and fearful.

Malina is a Lab cross  and what had happened to her on the street  no one knows but she was terrified of everything, she was neutered and taken to a compound that housed around 70 dogs , carers very few and far between and with so many dogs craving attention , Malina went  the best part of 2 years without  much human contact and she arrived in mid Jan as a traumatised little soul, at the sight of her fosterer Denise  she would run and evacuate her bladder and bowels with sheer fear . The progress she has made is remarkable, she loves to be stroked , she adores her toys and plays like a puppy as she never had the chance before.

“she is cat friendly and loves other dogs, at night she sleeps in her bed at the side of mine and doesn’t move until the alarm goes off and then she is by my side for a cuddle”

Malina needs a home to call her own with someone who can see what a fabulous future lies ahead for them both , Malina is very clever and has learned house training and routine very quickly, please share her plea , she deserves and has waited so long for love and attention.

Freddy1Freddy’s story: He used to live in a school yard and he was lucky enough to have been fed and played with by children which he loved, but then one day he was caught by the dog catchers. His fate should have been death, but he was lucky to be rescued from the kill station thanks to our volunteers and supporters who went in on a rescue mission.

He was offered a foster home in the UK by a wonderful Suffolk based volunteer foster mum who quickly got to work to find him a perfect foster home in 2015.

Dash

2014. Dash was found wondering on the streets of the Balkans and was rescued by one of our lovely volunteers and is now safe in kennels . 2014.

 Hercules is  is around 4 to 6 years old, weighs  in at around 8 stone. Some of the photos are not very clear and are quite horrific in some cases, these were taken when we first got contacted to get him a home.  At the time of finding him we had never found a dog in a worse condition than  Hercules . One of the rescuers found him laying in a pen,  neglectfully locked in with no water with a large tumour on his head. surrounded by  his own faecal matter and urine.  immediate action was needed to get Hercules to safety in  a loving environment where he could be treated. We managed to raise funds to get his tumour removed on his head. We also think he was whipped or beaten on a regular basis as he had open lacerations on his body, these have now healed. Firstly he was boosted with injections to boost his immune system. He was meticulously cleaned of all the worms and maggots on his body. His wounds were all shaved and stitched and sanitised and he was put on a course of antibiotics. And he had the large tumour rumoved from the side of his head. He is currently in a really good pension for dogs and he is receiving lots of daily one to one care in there with an experienced dog handler. Hercules needs a quiet and loving home where there are NO children and NO male dogs, he may even benefit from being an only dog as he is an alpha male and can sometimes be a bit reactive if there is too much noise going on etc. He is a loyal dog but due to his size and breed he needs an owner who has the time and willingness to work with him and to give him the exercise he needs.

hugo

2014. Hugo is about 2 years old and was thrown out on the streets by his previous owners.  This boy has a wonderful character and is  friendly and smart.  he is great with  other dogs and children and so desperate to have a family again. ! He was found wondering the streets alone by one of our volunteers. He is not yery neutered and is short of sponsor funds for his kennel home while he waits for an adoption offer.

2014. Prissy is approx. 2 years old and has very recently been saved. She showed up in the neighbourhood, along with many other dogs, but this beautiful girl seemed to have an affinity for the area and so she stayed. This girl was in great danger every night from a vicious pack of dogs owned by the local Gipsies. Every night this vicious pack hunts, and tears apart anything they can find to eat within their territory. This girl was smart. Really smart. She knew how to stay safe.............she had such a strong will to survive. She would hide underneath the rusty old fences close to the ground so she couldn't be seen by the pack. She is incredibly bright. Many local people took pity on her and used to cuddle her and offer her some affection, but nobody wanted to take her in to safety. Her rescuer has tried her on the leash but she reacts very, very badly to it, prompting us to think that she has most probably been recently captured and abused by the dog catchers with their loops and nets. She is petrified of the leash. Because of her amazingly calm temperament, everybody loved Prissy on the street and nobody wished her any harm. Except the evil dog catchers. They arrived one day last week in the very next street to where Prissy was sheltering every day and we knew we had to get her out of there and fast. Luckily I was able to find her quickly and get her safe in the car to take her to pension. The poor, poor girl was so scared she was shaking all the way there, as she sat in my lap. Never made a single sound, just sat shaking. Thanks to the wonderfully kind Joy Cousins, Prissy is now sponsored, but this poor, poor, frightened girl would love nothing better than a warm loving home of her own where she can hopefully find her Happy Ever After. Please, please, considering fostering or adopting the wonderful Prissy. She would reward you wish such love and companionship. Please share her album. A share often helps these poor, poor, dogs to find a forever home

He is only used to people raising their hand to him  and as a result he will need somebody with lots of time and lots of patience to reassure him and help him to find his confidence again. He shows some fear with other dogs and fear with people especially men who we think are responsible for having beaten him extensively whilst on the street when he was younger. He is safe in care but he will need somebody with time and a gentle household where no loud bangs or noises or shouting will scare him. He is very very gentle, but he will take time to find his feet and confidence again. This boy is adoreable. Really loving once he gets to know you and very very intelligent. If you would like to sponsor our Boki, then please get in touch with us. He costs just £30 per month to sponsor to keep him safe in care. Better still if you feel you have the quiet, gentle household that would be perfect for this boy to find himself again, then we would more than welcome your enquiries to adopt him. Hes a beauty, but so very frightened of a lot of things. Not his fault, but with time and care this can be overcome. Please share Boki, he really is so so special. Lets hope somebody wants to love this boy forever.

2014.   This gorgeous little girl was rescued today from the cemetary. One of our wonderful rescuer on the ground went to visit the grave of a family member and during her visit she found this little girl cowering amongst the gravestones. She is only about 4 months old. She has previously clearly suffered a broken leg and it has healed completely wrongly. The leg points in the wrong direction. It has now clearly atrophied and the vet feels that the best solution would be to remove that damaged front leg. Poor little Tori will also suffer because she is a black dog. The black dogs are always the last to be adopted and the first to be abused on the streets. Little Tori urgently needs help with veterinary care for her leg amputation, urgently needs a sponsor and also a wonderful loving home for her would be amazing. She is a very very quiet, timid and gentle girl who is petrified of the sound of traffic and the cars that went whizzing past the cemetary. She gets on really well with other dogs. She is a sociable little girl but is so so young still and has clearly been abandoned or even born on the streets. She wont survive without or help. Please can you sponsor little Tori. ??? Its only £30 per month to keep this little girl safe in kennels ? If you would like to sponsor tiny little Tori please get in touch with us. Send a private message on the page here. Or better still if you would like to adopt this little girl, that would be amazing. Please share and please contact us for sponsor or adoption of Tiny Tori.

2014. Rosie is gorgeous little little girl is looking for a home and a sponsor if possible. She comes from a litter of four puppies abandoned on the streets which our rescuer saved and put into care in the yard of a local lady. The lady has agreed to keep them safe but she desperately needs sponsorship for these pups in order to feed them and ensure they stay safe and fed and cared for. Little Rosie is the chocolate puppy of the litter. She is just 8 weeks old and wouldnt be able to travel to foster or adoption until around 14 weeks of age to ensure she has her vaccinations etc, for travel. Rosie is wonderful. A playful little girl, who gets along great with her brother and sisters. the other two paler golden pups are going to be adopted locally, but Rosie and her little brother Casper (the little black fella) are both looking for homes. Rosie is very good natured, gentle, playful, placid and easy going. She will be medium sized when fully grown and we just dont know what breed she is a mix of, but she is gorgeous that much we do know. She urgently needs a sponsor at the cost of 25 euros or £20 UK pounds to keep her safe and ensure she gets good food and vet care. Without sponsor or a home these pups will die. If you would like to sponsor little Rosie then please please contact us. Heer sponsorship money can be paid via paypal to: balkanunderdogs@gmail.com remembering to mark your donation FOR ROSIE. And if you would like to adopt her, even better. This little girl wont make it through the winter living outside the ladys yard and she cant take any more dogs into her house as her landlord wont let her have animals so she is caring for them as best she can in her yard and the kennel she has there to keep them dry and warm. Please consider offering the gorgeous little Rosie a home. And please check out the album for her brother Casper, also looking for sponsor and a home. ♥ ♥ ♥ for Rosie and Casper. Please share. And do contact us if you are able to sponsor or adopt. These dogs are in desperate dire need.
