Dogs and Puppies in City Park and Frida

A double post today.

First the dogs in City Park, Sarajevo. Jelena Paunović was notified as there are two puppies there in a very unsafe place.

They are living in a disused drain:


Sadly this is not at all uncommon: there are 11,000 + strays on the streets of Sarajevo. There are two adult dogs with them, one is certainly the mother.

More photographs of the puppies and the adult dogs in the slideshow below.

UPDATE November 27: I have been told that the mother dog is not the mother of these two puppies. That these two puppies have no mother….
UPDATE December 22: The two puppies were rescued and have found forever homes in Slovenia!

The costs for a puppy in pension are about 2 euros a day (about $2.60) depending where they go. An adult dog is 3-4 euros a day. Jelena has put a call out for fosters, but this is rare to never in Bosnia, only the animal welfare activists foster and they are full to the brim with dogs and cats rescued. If you can help save these dogs, please help:

Then there is Frida

Frida is another stray puppy. Found yesterday after a car accident. Jelena Paunović brought her immediately to the vet. Something is wrong with her hind legs…..in the slideshow below you will see a copy of the x-ray taken.

I don’t yet know the prognosis but will let you know. Funds are needed for her vet care and for her to stay in pension.

Update: December 24, 2012
I’m sad to say that Frida died yesterday of distemper. R.I.P. Little one.

    • Dena — right now it’s a financial issue. To get them off the streets and into ‘pension’ costs money – 80 – 120 Euros a month. Unless a local foster is found, but this is very very rare, unfortunately.
