All our dogs are behaviour tested by experts to ensure they are of sound character and suitable for rehoming, all are for many weeks or months in our care BEFORE rehoming so we have a better idea of their state of health and character and all are tested for the main possible diseases sometimes spread by ticks and sand flies in warmer climates like Greece.
All dogs are fully innoculated, regularly wormed and regularly treated to prevent any external parasites.
Booboo is a small mixed breed, 10 years old with medium length hair. She was found temporarily paralysed after her old owner brought her to the vet asking for her to be put to sleep. After asking the owner, we were able to get her to agree to let us help her.
After 2 months of intense exercises she is now able to walk and run almost perfectly; it was a very slow process with her living in one spot for a month with very minimal movement to her legs and body.
Nobody knows what happened to Booboo; we have heard several scenarios from the different vets. Maybe she was hit, maybe run over. She has some trauma to her back hips and shoulder, maybe a potential sprain or break in the shoulder and dislocated pelvis. She is slightly clicky in the shoulder and this can be worse with cold weather. We have been told to expect some arthritis in this shoulder and also the hips. There was most probably damage to some nerves, too. Boo has only a few teeth left; however this doesn’t affect her. They were cleaned by the vet a couple of weeks ago along with two teeth removed.
Boo is good with cats, dogs and children; however, at night time or when she is resting, she enjoys her own space and can snap at other dogs if they come too close. This is not dangerous, it's just a warning to back off. She can be left alone she is very well behaved in the house and toilet trained. She is good on a lead and travels well in the car.
She is fully vaccinated and tested negative for both ehrlichia and leishmania.
We are looking for a new home for my recently deceased parents’ dog. Milu is a golden retriever/border collie mongrel, 11 years old, male, neutered, 45 kg and 70 cm shoulder height. He is healthy, vaccinated, chipped and has all necessary papers. Milu is easy-care, well-adapted and calm. He is very obedient and can be taken anywhere. In restaurants he lies under the table and does not beg. He has no hunting instinct, is only mildly interested in other dogs and does not like cats very much. Milu likes children and is also suitable for older people. He is quite happy in a car. He loves spending time outside in the garden but can also live well in an apartment. He does not smell and has an easy-care coat. Milu is a loyal and faithful companion, whose presence radiates peace and relaxation. Milu is not used to being alone; he howls and barks. This is the main reason why we cannot accept him in our family, where the children are at school and the parents are at work. Milu would prefer to be with his owner all day long but can certainly be taken for a walk from time to time by another person: he is uncomplicated and likes company.
