Uk / Romania: Special Appeal to Find a New Forever, Permanent Loving Home for ‘Fluffy’, a DISABLED Dog Currently Living A Poor Life in Romania. Can You Help ?


Dear all,

Below is an extract from an email from Chrissy who is based in London and who is involved with bringing Romanian dogs over to the Uk and other countries in Europe and the rest of the world for re-homing.

Chrissy also regularly takes out food and bedding to 3 shelters in Romania.

We ask animal contacts everywhere who have a special contacts list of their own to please send out information about ‘Fluffy’, the dog shown below.

Additionally, if you are prepared to give some or all of your e mail contacts to Chrissy, then that would be very welcome.  This is effectively so that the information of any dogs which require re homing in the future can be sent out en masse to all of the new contacts.

Chrissy can be e mailed directly at

The following is a special appeal to help find a new home outside of Romania for ‘Fluffy’, who is a disabled dog. 

 Please read the following from Chrissy for further information.

 Note that ‘Rommies’ is the term used for dogs which are Romanian.

” Things hectic here as usual. Trying to balance the day job and the rescue side of things.  Had 2 more Rommies arrive yesterday and more in February.  Starting a schools educational program out there in a few weeks, will take place in Romania’s 2nd largest city.

Have an urgent case of a disabled dog called Fluffy, photos attached. 

He’s in a shelter in a remote part of Romania, he’s paralysed following being hit by a car which is very common out there. He’s about 4 years old and other than his obvious disability and the fact he’s missing an eye he’s in good health. 

We’ve rehomed about 10 or so disabled dogs in the past to Germany, the US, even as far as Alaska! 

We desperately need him out of that shelter as he’s dragging himself along in the dirt.  We can’t bring him here (to the Uk) as he has no passport, but he could go to a home elsewhere in Europe within weeks (as less strict entry laws) either into a forever home or foster home. 

If you have any contacts in Europe please let me know.  They’d need to be aware of what’s involved in taking on a disabled dog (i.e. we’d get him a mobility cart and they’d have to use nappies on him) but we could advise all this and put them in touch with others that have disabled pets. 

They live a fairly normal life thereafter!   “

Please crosspost this to the moon and back !

Thanks – SAV.





Germany: 28/01/11 – German ‘Fox Week’ – Latest Pics, Links and Even A Message From Jesus.

We have a saying about fur here in England:

“It may take the skins of many dumb animals to make one fur coat;


The following is from the most nortorious of the German hunters’ forums

This is the same forum where the photos of the shot cubs and vixens are posted – see pictures directly below:

Some current pictures from the same forum are shown below – for fox week 2011 and winter 2010 / 2011.

Here is a translated write up from one of the articles which was posted on the forum:

“Right, yesterday afternoon we arrested fox No. 20 and 21, two dogs.

Despite drizzle and “den weather“ the two artificial dens were empty, and the two of them lay in the brambles with the vixen.

Basko chased all three out within 3 minutes. Sadly the vixen (of all things!!) escaped, because our mate gloriously missed. Oh well, shit happens.

At least we managed to slay the other two.

The second one made it back to the hedge, but could go no further from there (ass shot apart) and turned to face the dog.

I go into the brambles and see the fox dead (eyes rolled back in the head, motionless) lying under the brambles – Basko grabs him by the throat and shakes him (I praise him). I leave to get the rose shears to cut fox and dog out. And all of a sudden the commotion starts afresh, and my dog wails terribly; my mate has a look and what does he see ?

This fucking beast only pretended to be dead when I came to look at it, and when I left he went for the jugular of the unsuspecting dog and had his fangs sunk into Basko’s.

My mate then stood on his throat and he let go, and we slew him. But imagine: he really lay there for a good minute or longer like dead !

What a terrific feat !”
