TERRY - Croatia - 11 months old small mixed breed male on death row.

Terry is small boy who may not have much time left as his death date should be 19.07.14.  Stray and abandoned dogs in Croatia are often brutally treated and abused.  A life on the streets is a miserable existence with the danger of starvation, being run down by cars (frequently deliberately), violence at the hands of people or other dogs and and suffering due to disease and lack of treatment but the dog who is picked up and taken to the pound has only 60 days and then by Croatian law they must be killed. 

However, we are fortunate that the pound vet (who is also the manager) works with our network of animal rescuers. The try to find homes for all the pound dogs, whether in Croatia, Germany, Holland or the UK. 

A local volunteer group comes and walk the dogs on a Saturday afternoon. This is the only time of the week the dogs can leave the pens and there can be long periods when the walks are not possible and due to the ratio of dogs to volunteers some will not get exercised at all.

Can you offer Terry a home? He is small size (about knee high) and gets on with other dogs.
