Connie, Happy, Tony and Bliss
Sejla became worried about dogs on her neighbours land, when she realised that they were permanently chained up outside. They were constantly barking, and when she went to investigate she found three dogs with little shelter, no food and empty water bowls. As her neighbour was unfriendly she took food and water to them over a number of days, under the cover of darkness, finding her way with a torch over rough land.
The neighbour finally agreed that Sejla could take two of the dogs if she paid for them. She was able to raise enough money from supporters to take the two oldest, more vulnerable dogs, which she did. These are Connie and Happy. Happy is quite elderly and was very undernourished when he was rescued. He now looks a totally different dog.
Sejla then set about trying to get the youngest dog away from the neighbour and he finally agreed to let him go at a price. Sejla again raised enough money to pay for his release and took him to the Shelter. This dog is Tony. The much smaller fourth dog was at that time living in the house with the family.
The three rescued dogs were immediately taken to the vets, given the necessary medical care, and fed nutritious food to build them up. They now live happily at the Shelter and are available for sponsorship or adoption.
After a few months, Sejla was walking near the Shelter when she realised that the small dog that had been living in the house was now permanently shut in the neighbour’s chicken shed. She could see that she had matted hair and, as a Pekingese, badly needed grooming. She asked the neighbour to release her to the Shelter, and again raised the funds to pay for her. This dog is Bliss. She is now groomed and looking wonderful, and has been offered a permanent home in Slovenia.
