Ricky loves affection and spending time with people, especially when that involves exercise! In the past, Ricky has had problems with his weight which is why he became such a skinny little guy. Now, though, that's a distant memory. With a loving family in the UK he's starting to beef up and enjoy a stable, permanent home. It's what every dog deserves!
Ben lived with a family until he became injured and handicapped. They didn't want to pay his vet bills, so he was then given to foster care. Thankfully, they took him to the vets where he was given treatment for his leg problems and started to make a recovery.
While he retains a limp, he can walk, run, and play again and still has a friendly, happy-go-lucky nature. Ben is now happily adopted in the UK, enjoying all the love that this little ball of fluff deserves.
Malek was found running along a dirt track in the middle of nowhere - clearly his owners had just dumped him out of their car. Luckily Sara from the shelters out there found him and took him to a foster home - he was too little and gentle for a shelter!
He's a very happy little chappie now, loving life in a Brighton town house!
Nawess is a gorgeous guy, found on the streets of Tunis with an infected paw that had to be amputated.
That doesn't stop him one bit though! Safely adopted into a loving home, Nawess now enjoys all the best bits of life with a big garden and comfy sofas.
Ava was dumped in the bin as a kitten and left to die. Heartbreakingly, it took a while for our rescuers to have the resources to take her in, but eventually she was saved. She was starving, full of fleas, and shaking with terror.
Now, Ava lives in Italy. Things couldn't be more different for her, with a loving home, good food, and a safe place to sleep every night.
Rabbane was living comfortably in Tunisia her whole life until her owner had to leave the country. Sadly, said owner was looking at putting Rabbane to sleep, instead of getting her rehomed, until our rescuers stepped in.
Luckily, we got this lovely dog a great new home. They shower her with love and she definitely returns the favour!
Cleo suffered horrid burns when living in Tunisia and had to be transported to the UK after the treatments in Tunisia failed. She received a much needed skin graft and, to everyone's joy, a brilliant home!

Marzouk was found on the streets with a leg so badly infected that it had to be amputated. After being stuck in an overcrowded shelter, he found it impossible to be adopted in Tunisia because of his leg.

Sombel's story breaks our heart a little. He was found with giant wounds all over his body after someone threw hot oil on him, scarring him for life. Afterwards he was put into an overcrowded shelter where he struggled to get enough food to eat amongst the more dominant dogs.
Thanks to everyone's hard work and donations we found a home for Sombel, and he couldn't be happier!
Meet Zaza. All adoptions are special to us, but this one was something else. Zaza was found on a construction site with her puppies and a damaged front paw.
None of that stopped her from being full of life - she literally smiles when she sees people! To our pure delight, she now lives in an amazing home in the UK.
We believe Cookie was once a house dog, but probably chucked out on the street once he got sick. He was found with severe malnutrition and with a skin disease, but with tender love and care he was nursed back to full health.

Alpha and Beta were found at just a few weeks old, left on the streets to die along with their brother. Sadly, he didn't make it. But these two made a swift recovery after being fed and loved by our wonderful rescuers.
They live in the UK with Elspeth now, bringing great joy to her life and getting up to all sorts of mischief.

BELLA AND SOUNA
This was a special adoption. Both blind from a young age, they lived in a bathroom for their first few years, after being found on the street, with only each other for company.
To our delight they found a wonderful home together after being separated for a while and now get tonnes of attention, cuddles, and toys.
Gold was found scavenging for food on the streets, lacerations around his neck and blind from diabetes. With a good diet, his wonderful rescuers managed to bring back some of his vision.

Now she has a wonderful home in the British countryside with a family that definitely won't be abandoning. Congratulations Tina!
Jack, formerly known as Shane, was saved by one of our rescuers, Sarah, as a kitten. He was a tiny, scrappy little thing when found on the street but that didn't stop him from worming his way into Sarah's heart with his affectionate and playful personality.

Layla was found on the doorstep of our volunteers, trying desperately to enter their home whenever she could. Eventually they couldn't leave her out on the street any longer, taking pity on her just before the police could come round to eradicate dogs in the area.
