Aida - female sharplaninac mix, 7 months old - In foster in UK

Aida is just 7 months old and yet she has suffered more hardships than any dog deserves. Aida and 6 siblings were born on the streets to a feral mother who, being quite young could not look after them  very well and living on scraps of food her milk wasn’t very filling so her pups spent every day feeling the pains of hunger.  Every day they would hear the sounds of dogs fighting for food and water, and their mother would do the best she could to guide them away from any trouble. They soon learnt to avoid people as well, after seeing other dogs beaten, kicked and murdered by local people who just didn’t want them around.

One day their luck changed when a lovely lady gathered them up from the streets and took them into her shelter. Their mother was so terrified and yet she allowed the lady to put her in her car along with her pups. The pups seemed to accept her more, nervous but not terrified and either realising she was a good person or, resigned to their fate they went along with no great trouble.

The mother and pups were given a small amount of food often, to try to build them up slowly but they were in a very poor physical state and sadly 2 of them died, leaving Aida and 4 siblings. They needed a lot of treatment to clear them of the fleas and ticks that had irritated them for so long and with love and care they slowly started to trust. 

Sadly though the need for treatment over such a length of time has gone against them as although extremely beautiful they are no longer young puppies and certainly in their country this limited the number of people interested. 2 siblings have now found homes in their country but for Aida, Mozart and Beethoven it seemed that foster in the UK would be their best chance of finding the forever homes they so need and deserve.

Aida has a wonderful character, loves to play, sweet and kind but most of all she loves to be around people and to be cuddled! She is 19 kg and is 57cm long and will make life complete for anyone who decides to give her a good home and lots of love!
