Temperament: lively, friendly, sometimes a bit insecure in new situation and with new people, but she very soon is ok; a bit more at ease with women than with men initially, but has gotten very used to men during her time in foster and is ok with visitors and workmen etc and is generally ok with both now, loves the outdoors and being with her people, Milly can be left on her own and is not destructive.

Child friendly: Milly was friendly with all the children she met who were 10+, she could unintentionally hurt a young child just by being lively and playful. Milly is currently living with a teenager in her foster home.

Dog friendly: yes

Cat friendly: not known, but with the right introduction to a cat who is used to dogs Milly would most likely be ok as she is ok with so many other animals already

Other animals: got used to goats and sheep in her current foster home

Behaviour/Training needs: her foster family is teaching her basic commands, lead training and is working on her recall. there may still some socializing to be done as prior to being in her foster home she has not experienced the outside world, but in general Milly has come a long way and is a super dog now. Please have a look at her latest video compilation of recent progress. She is now a super-duper doggy

Location: home fostered in Cornwall

Ideal Home: semi rural or rural would be great and ideally providing good space. The garden needs to be very secure and not too small. Most important though are the people Milly will be sharing her life with. They need to be active, have lots of time to give to Milly and be sympathetic to her needs, as well as kind and patient to let her adjust after leaving her current foster home. She would do really well with a playful and balanced dog as a role model and for company.

Hello my name is MILLY-MOO and this is my story.


My story starts on the streets in Bosnia. I was an abandoned stray pup fighting for survial and at high risk of being poisoned, shot or ending up in a kill shelter, because many people do not like strays like me around here. Bojan, the Bark Ark rescue shelter owner was on a call out to collect some other street dogs and found me too. So he wanted to assure that I am safe too. I was only little then. They put me in the Bark Ark foster shelter where I grew up, cared for by a lovely lady called Rada. Unfortunately during lockdown spay/neuter was not possible and I became pregnant by accident. When it was discovered after lockdown I needed an emergency sterilisation and my puppies were aborted. This is a standard way of dealing with pregnancies here as more puppies are an absolute no-no. I came through my surgery very well and was now looking forward to starting my new life in a faraway land called England where Paws2Freedom had promised to take care of me. For the first time in my life I will be truly wanted and hopefully someone will love me enough to give me my very own forever home. Can you imagine how this felt?

Because I grew up in a shelter I have not seen anything much of life until I arrived in the UK not so long ago. Nor did I have any contact with men until my transport day came. My limited past made me very fearful of any new situations and also men. I prefer women and men scare me a bit if I am really honest. I will need someone really sympathetic who understands me, talks gently to me and is patient until I gain trust. It will happen, I promise. When I arrived I spent a few weeks at Paws2Freedom where I started gaining trust with Mark which helped me a lot. I tried to attach myself to Susan, but by Mark becoming my main carer I learnt that men are ok too. I am now also fine with both men in my foster home and any visitors. 

Once I find my bearings and settled in a bit, I am an energetic playful dog who is very agile. I will need a very secure garden  with high fences.


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. They show me after my spaying surgery in Bosnia and in the shelter where I lived which was a safe place away from the big main shelter, as well as photos here at Paws2Freedom and in home foster. There are a couple of  little videos too where you can see how fast and fun I can be and in my foster home where I meet some of the animals.  

If you would like to support me and dogs like me a bit I would be ever so grateful. Your donation will help so much and every penny counts. Rescuing dogs like me 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, Milly-Moo ♥
