The dogs background
The dogs found in Dog Rescue Romania's dog fence are usually a true "street product" with ancestry from generations of dogs that they have also lived on the street. The majority of Dog Rescue Romania's dogs have been found or captured by either friendly Romanians or by the fence's staff and veterinarians. The dogs come either from somewhere out in the community or from them municipal deathbeds. Dogs that are considered particularly suitable for adoption are offered a place in the fence as well as those dogs that are deemed to be difficult to survive on their own in the community. A few of Dog Rescue Romania's dogs have previously had an owner who for some reason tired them and either handed them to the fence or simply threw them out on the street.
During the time that Dog Rescue Romania's dogs live in the fence, they are cared for by dog caretakers and veterinarians as the fence also has its own large clinic located in the middle of Bucharest.
The last veterinary inspection takes place the day before the flight to Sweden when the dog is also unmasked against the dwarf bandworm and other worms. Mediterranean diseases such as leishmania and heartworm are very rare in the area around the hedgerows as the climate here is temperate with cold winters, which disadvantages the insects that spread the diseases. To be on the safe side, DogRescue has nevertheless chosen to have all dogs tested for these diseases before leaving for Sweden.
Your dog has been selected and evaluated by both veterinarians, fence staff and most often together with a dogRescue representative. DogRescue regularly visits the hens and can continuously monitor the individual dogs' mental development and physical health status. As we work very closely with our Romanian colleagues, we also receive supplementary reports and updates regarding our dogs as soon as any change occurs.
