D.O.G. Success Stories – BAKU / LISI

This incredibly cute pup has been through so much, but eventually landed at best possible place – her forever home!

Little Baku was found in Bakuriani by a concerned visitor. As her resucer lives in Tbilisi and had no place to keep Baku – who had several serious leg injuries -, but she could not leave Baku to her fate, so she contacted us immediately for advice.
We agreed that we would try to find a solution if she could bring her to the Agricultural Veterinary clinic.
So tiny Baku was checked-in to the clinic the next day. And with that her luck changed. Although she still had some very difficult obstacles to tackle, but she was on the right track. She was safe, and it seemed her leg injury could be fixed completely with a surgery. Everything was set for the operation, but her body could not handle the anaesthesia, so the surgery had to be stopped. This means that her leg will never be the same as it was before the trauma that caused the injury.
But she is active, she uses the injured leg, and she makes the maximum out of her situation. She has always been positive, friendly and outgoing.
We soon found her a foster family, the lovely Rhona and her partner came forward to offer her a temporary place while she was healing.
And not long after it became obvious that the temporary place would turn into little Baku’s (now Lisi) forever home!

D.O.G. Success Stories – Lottie / Saffron
Lottie and her 4 sisters were dumped in a village close to Tbilisi 2 years ago. A wonderful family was caring for all of them during the summer months and DOG helped with their vaccination and sterilization. As the weather turned cold and snowy and it became difficult to access the forest where they were living, they had no chance to survive unless we provide a place for them in the shelter. Two of the sisters – Coco and Latte – have travelled to New York with the help of the extraordinary Meleena, as we could not take in all four of the pups.
Sandy, Lottie’s twin but in white, soon followed the sisters and after a few twists and turns also found herself at Meleena.
Lottie, this sweet natured, smart girl remained at the shelter, waiting and waiting for her dream family that somehow did not want to turn up.

Until this summer when a couple contacted us, expressing their interest in adopting a dog.
Soon Lottie went for a trial period to them. We usually prefer to leave time for the potential adopters to make a decision. However, Lottie was one of those lucky cases where it was clear from the beginning that she was the right match and her lovely new mum contacted us straight after the minimum 2 weeks, informing is that they wanted to make the adoptiom formal.
We visited them and we could not wish a better home and family for Lottie!

Bona was living a relatively safe life in Kutaisi, neutered, vaccinated and tagged by the local municipality. However, as a gentle and timid dog, she could not establish herself as a dominant member of the pack that she lived with, so her struggle for food and other resources was continuous. While she was not in direct danger, she was painfully thin when she was spotted by a kind tourist, Renida, who decided that she would help Bona, no matter what.
Renida contacted us and asked our help. We agreed to provide a place for Bona
As she was far from Tbilisi, we were not very hopeful about finding a quick transport option for her, but she was lucky again – a couple who adopted a dog from us was just planning their visit to Georgia, arriving at Kutaisi airport and they immediately offered to look for Bona and transported her to our shelter from Kutaisi.
When Bona arrived at us, we were expecting her to stay only for a few months and then fly to Renida. But just as she got ready to travel, all international flights to and from Georgia were banned, and Bona was again in an uncertain situation. But one thing never changed even during these uncertain times – Renida’s commitment to this wonderful dog.
And now, 10 months after Bona first met her rescuer, they finally got reunited thanks to a wonderful flight volunteer who managed to get Bona to Riga a few weeks ago!
