The smallest litter of 2-3weeks of age was tossed on a hot graveyard concrete on a summer day.
It was uncertain for how many days they had been there, but the moment they heard us coming near to them, they started crying and crying.😢😭
So small and defenseless, it was such a heartache seeing them there on a scorching day with spilled water out of the plates.
They were hungry and thirsty.
Exhausted as they only could find a shade beneath the containers.
Covered in fleas.
Bloody from flea bites.

💫But these babies proved to be extremely tough and now they are finally ready to embark into a new chapter of their lives- a chapter in which they have a family!
Meet the most gentle boy in the litter, PAINT, who got his name after his beautiful colored coat,
Things you should know about Paint
around 10 months old
~Paint with his now adopted brother, Wiggles
currently is living with one of Misi's members as he had hurt his paw and went to our member's home for recovery. Before that he lived in a pen in the shelter with his siblings. What we discovered is an even lovelier nature our Paint has -he is an absolute sweetheart with the resident dogs and cats. At first he was afraid of the cats but slowly they have made good friends ( cats are dog savvy). Other dogs have thought him where to go for the toilet and in a couple of days of practice he nailed it. Paint has made himself comfortable enough to sleep with our team member, with his head on her shoulder-that's his favourite spot. She cannot praise him enough -sweet, gentle, gives a good kind of vibe. He walks her to the front door each morning when she goes for work, and welcomes her when she comes back. No, he doesn't cry when she leaves bc he knows she'll return. He isn't destructive, doesn't chew on things which is so funny how well-mannered he is. Or maybe it's because he has other things to do like play with other doggies and cats.
Paint is the tinniest puppy in the litter and the shyest one. Compared to others he has always been a bit more sensitive and would always wait before he comes to you for cuddles. So he'll need some understanding and reassurance from his future family as he'll need to travel for days to come to them. What a stress that must be! Once the time is given to him to relax and he starts approaching on his on record to you, you'll be privileged to cuddle the most gentle, chunky puppy who is always in the mood for kisses. In general. the more time someone spends with Paint, the more relaxed he gets and becomes very attached to the person.
loves kids he has met for the 1st time at our member's home, although he doesn't live with any . Even though we'd always recommend slow introductions but with his gentle & sweet character they should make best friends straight away
Loves running through the garden, restlessly exploring and playing with his siblings and other playful doggies regardless of their size.
Not used on walking on a lead so a small practice is needed although he walks off lead because he's become our team member's shadow- goes with her regularly to the river and explores there without her having to chase him because he always comes back to check on her
healthy, fully vaccinated and castrated

How do you adopt Paint?
Adoption requires a pre-adoption questionnaire, home check and an adoption contract.
You will need to pay for Paint's transportation, and pay for the paperwork to get him to you.
The costs are typically €550 in total depending on where you are located.
We used to be able to charge a little less but unfortunately, due to brexit, the costs of passports, documentation and travel have been increased by our suppliers.
