We are unable to fully assess our dogs before they travel to the UK. This means that we usually have very little information on their personalities and what type of home they would suit best. Therefore, we do not adopt dogs direct from Romania. However, you can foster a dog with a view of adoption. This means that the dog can settle in during the foster period and we can make sure that they are a suitable match for your household without already committing to adoption. We usually recommend that you foster the dog for at least four weeks before making the decision of whether you would like to adopt the dog. You can foster-to-adopt a dog from anywhere in mainland UK. Unfortunately, we are unable to transport dogs to UK islands or Northern Ireland.
Generally, this process works very well; however, if you feel that the dog isn’t the right fit for your household during the fostering period, then we can transfer the dog over to our partner rescue where they will assess the dog and find them a suitable home. However, we expect all foster-to-adopters to work through any behavioural issues that you come across as we aim for the dogs to be adopted through this process.
The adoption fee for an adult dog is £250; however, our less-mobile, older dogs (8+), or those with health issues, have an adoption fee of £150.
