KIA - small female crossbreed - Croatia

Meet little "Kia". All of her 7.5kg are utterly delightful. Of no fault of her own, Kia has ended up in a kill shelter in Croatia. She is looking for her forever home, before her 60 days in the shelter are up and she could be destroyed. Kia just wants a loving home, a bed to call her own, food and water and last but not least cuddles. Kia is under knee-high so a very good size for most households. She is good with other dogs and children and loves attention from people.

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 (often 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. 

The vet does his best with the limited resources available, local volunteers are recruited to come 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.
