Even if our focus is on using neutering campaigns to break the cycle of more and more unwanted baby animals and even if life on the street is not bad per se for every dog, we want those who are healthy and who show good behavior in themselves convey a "home forever".

We never know what happened to the dogs ourselves, for this reason it is difficult for us to say anything about the character or behavior of the animal. The foster home in which they live and our local animal rights activists tell us the characteristics of the animal to the best of their knowledge. However, the behavior of the animal depends on the person and his environment / change, so that the animal can develop undesirable characteristics, which, however, also subside with the acclimatization period.

It is very important to us that in the event of persistently undesirable behavior, a suitable dog trainer or a dog school will look for a solution so that the dog is not given up again if problems arise!

It has to be clear to you that an animal welfare dog needs a lot of patience and the animal really has to get the chance to arrive and gain confidence again. After all, it was torn from a familiar environment; may have had a very bad time; was beaten, tortured or, even after a long family membership, just put out on the street and left to fend for himself.

If the animal has a health problem that we know about, we will of course indicate this. Of course, it can still happen that the animal gets sick. This is mostly due to stress due to the long transport trip. Later there is the changeover to new food and getting used to in the new home.

Saving an animal welfare dog, i.e. saving a life, also means that you have to be aware and be prepared for anything!

Most dogs have lived on the street before and had to fight to survive. Often they don't know more than the street and the shelter and have never been in contact with children or cats before.

The dogs are not house trained, often cannot walk on a leash and are afraid of situations or things that are quite common for us or other dogs.

If they have never been in an apartment before, the changeover to limited space and no real options for them is extremely large - as they have been used to acting and acting independently. They go through such a big change in the first weeks and months, they may feel like little aliens in our living room.

Many dogs have lived in shortages on the street and also in the shelter for a long time and have a big topic with resource defense. They see things either immediately or after some time as their own and defend this because they don't want to lose it anymore! Punishing them for it wouldn't be the right way, they don't mean it badly. One day they were just the poorest dogs of all.


But the good thing is, they are all topics that can be changed and improved if you choose the right methods. No matter how hopeless. It does not matter how old.

By the way, we can only estimate the age of the dogs.

You know with great certainty that you don't know what breed is in an animal welfare dog or how big it will be. Since we do not know which mixtures have paired, there can be a hunting instinct in every dog, even if one did not want a hunting dog at all.

Our dogs are (if possible) neutered, chipped and dewormed. They receive their basic immunization, which is also common in Germany, a valid rabies vaccination and are tested for the so-called travel diseases before leaving the country. You should repeat this test again after a while. It can happen that even if we have every dog checked to our best conscience before leaving, parasites could not be completely combated. We therefore ask you to see the vet again as soon as the animal has settled in at home.

We have permission from the Berlin Veterinary Authority in accordance with Section 11 of the Animal Welfare Act.

For the legal import of our dogs to Germany, we observe the European and federal regulations. You are traveling with your EU pet passport and the TRACES certificate, which is issued by an official veterinarian in the country of origin.

TRACES (Trade Control and Expert System) is a veterinary information system for international trade, especially within Europe, through which the transport is registered. The transport costs € 110.00, this amount must be paid in cash on the day of collection.


The collection takes place at a meeting point near the new home. It may well be that you have to take a little longer car journey to hug the new family member.

Unfortunately, animal welfare does not only live from compassion - our daily work is associated with high costs such as veterinary bills, medication, vaccinations, food, water, accommodation, etc.

The nominal fee for a dog is therefore € 400.00. Everything that is left of the nominal fee will benefit our other dogs.

If you decide on a dog from abroad despite everything, you will experience a lot, some things will certainly be exhausting, but you will always have a very special dog by your side who will give you a lot in return!
