Jessie’s story is one of abandonment and fighting for survival on the streets of Derventa, a city in Bosnia. Bojan from the Bark Ark Shelter was called to ‘clean up’ the streets from this unsightly street dog. If he had not gone to take her, Jessie’s fate would have been a very cruel one and she would not have survived. This poor kind soul who doesn’t mean any harm to anyone. A street dog who did not choose to be born into this life. An innocent victim of people’s failures, disagreements and lack of compassion. A sadly all too typical story in the Balkans where street dogs at best get fed by some kind people, but are mainly regarded as a nuisance. So Bojan caught Jessie with kindness and took her to his shelter. At least here she had a chance of being spotted and picked. She would have food and was safe. And this is exactly what happened for this darling girl. We saw Jessie’s sweet face and our hearts just melted.


Jessie will come to us here at Paws2Freedom over the coming weeks/months once logistics and resources allow. She will be looking for her very own forever home here in our area of Cornwall/Devon.


Thank you so much for reading this lovely girl’s story. If you are interested in this girl please keep an eye on our page/website for updates in the coming weeks.


If in the meantime you would like to help Jessie with your support, she would welcome your kind donation and love.


With love, gratitude & paws from Jessie and P2F.
