Smart Spike

Do you know what it means to be in the right place at the right time? Spike does! He and Vlada just happened to be waking down the same street at the same time and smart Spike understood quickly that she is someone who could help him. Spike was right! Can you see the difference in the photos below? When Vlada found him, Spike was lost, dirty, and had an inflammation in one eye. Now a month later, he is happy and healthy. This little boy will be available for adoption in February after being neutered and fully vaccinated. That is what Sochi Dogs is all about!

Flint and Stefan are Safe!

Can you imagine how Flint and Stephan felt when they were torn away from their family and left in a deserted lot? 

Today they are safe, warm, and fed. But just two weeks ago, our rescue partners found these two brothers very hungry and scared, huddled together in a cardboard to keep warm. Our amazing foster mom Lena stepped up to take them in and this weekend they had a chance to hang out with Trainer Platon, who brought some toy to share with them. When Flint and Stephan are a little bigger and fully vaccinated they'll be joining our crew at the shelter.

The look in this mom dog's eyes said everything. 

This weekend as the temperatures in Sochi are starting to drop, we found this mom dog in an empty lot trying to survive with her newborn puppies. 

When we approached her, the mom welcomed us wagging her tail. It's clear that up until a few days ago this sweet girl was living in a home but as soon as she had puppies the whole family was tossed out. 

The mom was lost and desperately looking for help. Her puppies were still too young to open their eyes and she needed to feed them and keep them warm. 

 

Mom watched carefully as we bent down to scoop them up and put them in a crate. Once we put her in the car next to them, she relaxes a bit. You could tell just how happy she was to be off the street. The entire family is with our foster partner Lena, where they are warm, fed, safe and loved. Once they are ready they'll be at the shelter and ready for adoption. Helping this family off the street has not only saved them but has also prevented countless of other dogs from being born.
