Hello my name is EMMIE and this is my story.


I started my life on the streets where I was born the daughter to Pepper, my mum. During the time where I was growing up I never left my mum's protection and this is how I survived. We begged for food and tried to find shelter and were not always greeted with kindness. There was a really lovely nurse who took care of us and gave us food when she could. We really trusted her. I had learned not to be too trusting unless to a person we knew. Life as a stray is very hard and one day someone complained about us and Bojan from the Bark Ark rescue shelter was called out to 'clean us off the streets'. It was a very risky situation and we may have not lived if this caring man hadn't come to our rescue. He showed us to Paws2Freedom that very day and they did not hesitate to help us. So we are now eagerly awaiting pet travel so we can start our new lives in England. My mum is already reserved for adoption, but I am still waiting for find my very own loving forever home. I never had the chance to feel truly safe and relaxed and I dream of growing up having fun like other dogs. 


If you would like to apply for giving me my forever home, please complete an application form as a first step. But please bear in mind that I am advertized on other sites too and I hope that you understand that there may be more than one application to my name by the time you have completed yours for me. 

Please enjoy my photos and videos below. They show me when I was a stray, in the busy shelter and at Bojan's place after I got spayed. 

If you would like to support me a bit I would be ever so grateful. Your donation will help so much and every penny counts. This is a big rescue mission for such a small charity and we can't do it without you. If you could mark your kind giving with ‘Bosnian Dogs’ your funds will be put towards my costs or that of another dog like me. 

Thank you so much from my hopeful little heart and fluffy paws ~ Love, Emmie ♥
