History : Lassi, Lisa and Lou came to the shelter after their owner passed away and the family was unable to care for the dogs. The three of them lived in a shed like hunting dogs and are therefore not used to living with people. They are very shy around strangers. Lou was lucky enough to go to a foster home after an injury, where little by little she gets more confident, she is learning things, among them the most important, to enjoy the company of people.
All animals available for adoption have a microchip and passport. They have been tested for common diseases (Leishmania for dogs, FeLV and FIP for cats). Adult animals are fully vaccinated and castrated.
* Until complete adaptation, adult supervision with small children is essential.
** This means we have tested the dog with cats in the shelter and has shown no reactive behaviour, but this does not guarantee 100% compatibility with cats. Therefore, we always advise that cats and dogs are together only under surveillance.
