Unfortunately, her new home has fallen through. Lucy won’t be able to join our trip unless she has an alternative new home to go to.
Rebecca from the charity tells us how she found Lucy, and what she’s like.
“I saw her on the streets for some weeks. When I first called her she came running. She jumped into my car as soon as I opened the door, and laid down on the back seat. I took her to my office where she ate and slept for a few hours.
I drove her to stay at a kennels, where she gets on with everyone and all the other dogs. She’s clever and so easy going, she’s allowed in the kennel owner’s house. She gets on with everyone and all the other dogs.
I have lots of cats at the office and she just ignored them all. She’s very obedient — just aristocratic. The kennel owner and I would keep her if we could. For the kennel owner to say that, after seeing so many dogs, really says something. We want a home for her indoors with a family, where she’ll be loved and cared for as a gracious pet.”
Stella, originally from Greece, is a Heinz 57 type of dog, with generous helpings of Collie and German Shepherd. Around three years old, she’s in good health, microchipped, vaccinated and neutered. As far as anyone can tell, she has been deaf since birth.
Stella is a very energetic girl, good with people and also with other dogs once she has got to know them. Her energy levels probably mean she’s not suitable for a home with young children, cats or other dogs. She’s clean in the house and sleeps soundly in her crate at night.
If you — or someone you know — might be able to offer Stella a home, please contact Conrad.
Gaston, aged around five or six, was found three and a half years ago in Athens central park, having been attacked by other dogs. He was taken to the Filozoikos Shelter who have looked after him ever since.
Although docile, intelligent and trainable, he’s a strong dog (25 kilos) who needs lots of exercise to release his energy, but the sheer number of dogs at the shelter means he doesn’t always get as many walks as he needs.
He would be an ideal companion for people with an active lifestyle and no other pets — he definitely doesn’t like cats. He also has a slight phobia about men he doesn’t know.
The shelter is looking for a foster home for him and a person who would be willing to coach him.
