D.O.G. Success Stories – IRENE

Irene started life as a street dog before being rescued, cared for and adored by a dog-loving couple. When her wonderful owner passed away, Irene had nowhere to go. This was heartbreaking and it took some time for her to heal emotionally, but soon after she arrived at us, she had the chance to move to a foster home and that helped her open up again.
Not long after Irene returned from her first foster family, the lovely Vania and her family visited us, with the prospect of fostering a dog. As most family, they started with inquiring about smaller dogs and puppies or young ones. But when Vania’s husband took Irene out for a walk, they had a connection that made them change their minds and they offered to foster Irene.
As Irene is an old dog, we could not even dream of her adoption at that point. But earlier this year Vania told us they were seriously considering adopting Irene – we discussed all questions that can arise from adopting and older dog, and we knew straight away that Irene has found the absolute dream family.
We are so grateful to everyone who helped her along this journey and we hope this will encourage others to also consider adopting a senior dog.
