D.O.G. Success Stories – GRACE

Grace arrived at the shelter a few years ago when his rescuer found her tied to a tree in the outskirts of Mtskheta. Shocked by the tortured, severely emaciated and sick state of Grace, he took her straight to the vet.
After the vet visit Grace was brought to us to recover. It took her a long time to heal, not only from her injuries but also from the abuses that she suffered before being rescued.
Grace was always very affectionate with humans that surrounded her, radiating love to all our volunteers. The years passed, but sadly, nobody paid attention to her. We were very excited when she had a chance to move to a foster home – first to Alina then to Brian – which enabled her to learn how to adjust to a home environment and helped us to get to know her character better. She behaved perfectly in the home and on walks in the city, she was the ideal dog from the get go, without much need to learn anything, so we knew she was ready for a forever family then. When the foster period was over, Grace got back to the shelter right on time to meet Rob, who visited us with the intention of adopting a dog for his family in the US.
Well, that first greet and meet couldn’t have gone better! After discussing it with his family back in the States, it was decided: Rob and his family would adopt Grace!
Earlier this year, Rob and his wife travelled to Georgia to spend more time with Grace and then flew home with her.
We are happy to report that Grace is doing great and the whole family adores her (well, convincing the cat is still taking some time).
Grace finally got all the love that she so deserves.

Grace is gorgeous and sweet-and a welcome addition to our family of (now) 3 rescue dogs. We got together Sunday and it was a riot watching them together. When Gracie learns Georgia the cat can be her friend too, all will be calm and happy.

She looks like my rescue dog Hunter! I hope he will get lucky one day! Amazing story!!!

Go be happy, Grace!

D.O.G. Success Stories – KORRA

Donut – now Korra – safely arrived in the US with her adoptive family and getting adjusted to the hard life of living on a massive land, frolicking around with her doggie pals and cuddling up with her human mom and dad.

She started off as a street dog in a little village near Tbilisi. She was abandoned there with her mum, Roxy in the most cruel way. After they had been faithfully guarding the building site and land of their owner for many months, once the holiday home was ready and it was time for the fence to come up, the owners decided to leave the dogs outside of the fence, and they were never let in again to their own home.

Roxy and Donut still stayed on the same street, not wanting to go far from the home they once had. They were playing with and guarding all the neighbourhood children, and receiving food scraps from those around them that felt sorry for the way they were literally and metaphorically left in the cold.

We posted about them earlier this year, but were a little sceptical whether they would be able to find a home as they are both very large. However, our amazing volunteers, Aimee and Dylan decided to meet Donut/Korra and then to adopt her.
Despite moving homes, despite the extreme difficulties that travelling back to the US with 3 dogs (they already had two other rescue pups) meant, they have never given up on any of them, and Korra is now the happiest of pups!

Hi. Do you have small pups that are apartment friendly (ground floor with lots of space)? A friend living in austria, with glorious mountains of Vorarlberg and working from home wants a puppy she can adopt. She has an apartment in Georgia and will be back soon. Must be small as she travels a lot and wants a dog she and her husband can take with them everywhere.

Amazing well done you guys. Such an awesome thing you are doing. The world needs more of you 💪😊🐾🐶

🥺🥰 Was Korra’s mom adopted along with him? 🥺💕

Amazing

That’s amazing!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Beautiful pups!
