This is George who along with his sisters, Tania and Sasha, is in a foster home in Crete waiting for travel arrangements to the Uk to be finalised.
Their poor mum is a stray in a rural area, she keeps giving birth to at least 3 pups per litter. Local rescuers have tried for nearly 2 years to c match her, so they can neuter her to prevent her constant stream of babies. They manage to catch most of her babies and find them homes but the cycle really needs to end for everyones well being. Especially the mums. But until that time, the rescuers continue to help her offspring.
George and siblings are the latest pups and now old enough to travel we would love for them to find happy lives in the UK.
George is a happy active pup who is sociable with dogs and can live with cats. He is fully vaccinated and microchipped, but is still too young to be neutered so adopters will be asked to commit to doing this as soon as he is old enough.
George has had the benefit of time in a home environment, but his new family will still need to be prepared for the work of introducing a pup to living in a family home - basic training, toileting, walking on and off lead, getting used to noises.
The decision to adopt a puppy should not be taken lightly - we have had puppies returned as people have not been fully prepared for the hard work that can come. If you invest time and energy into the advice we give you, George will adapt and become a rounded dog. But please do not underestimate this can mean a few weeks of hard work.
Please only apply if you are 100% committed to the hard work a puppy can bring, broken sleep, toilet training, socialisation, boundaries. The first week is very important and with the right boundaries and guidance George will easily adjust and make a lovely addition to any home but adopters need to be fully prepared.
IF YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO ADOPT ON ARRIVAL PLEASE DO NOT APPLY AS YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE A REPLY.
