Les was found on the streets of Sarajevo with chain-marks scars around his neck, and his behaviour indicates he was badly abused. He’s a gorgeous dog, outgoing and very healthy and friendly. But, he can get aggressive if he thinks you are going to pick him up.
Arijana, who rescued him, says: “For a new environment maybe he will be little aggressive but soon he will be real guard the place of residence and people who live there, and he does not like to play with people too much, he has a limit for play and he will tell you when you must stop. With me he is just a regular dog, but for new faces he is little aggressive, not much, he must see who you are and what you want.”
I have no doubt that with the right care and handling Les will turn out to be a perfect dog. He’s obedient in traffic on a lead, gets on well with female dogs and puppies.
Our group, AWAB, Animal Welfare Activists for Bosnia, have a transport from Bosnia to the UK, set for June. Les deserves to be on this transport and on his way to a forever home. The transport can do drop-offs enroute.
Please contact us if you feel you are the right home for lovely Les: firstname.lastname@example.org
There are still several rescued dogs who haven’t had anyone ask about them, or offer them home, and Les is amongst these. You can find the full list on the AWAB website Please note that some of the dogs listed have foster homes but we are still hoping to find forever homes for them; and one or two are awaiting a home-check. But Nova, Bubi, Mama Puppy and Les have not had any enquiries and they are beautiful dogs.

Another way to help these dogs is to sponsor a place on the transport for a dog. The cost is about £245 or 300 euros. If you think you could help, please contact us at email@example.com.
This would provide a dog with a safe and caring home environment (far superior to that of a Bosnian pension) as well as providing the dog with house-training, human/animal contact and getting the dog used to a new domestic environment.
Fostering would also offer the opportunity of the dog finding a forever home locally!
Through fundraising, we would provide both the food and pet insurance (including public liability) for the dog while it’s in the foster home. In addition AWAB would continue to collaborate with the fosterer to promote the adoption of the dog.

Funds are needed not only to help individual rescues and to help us keep safe the 20 rescued dogs we are sponsoring but also to continue our advocacy work in Bosnia, uncovering the truth about what is happening there.

This site is dedicated to Vučko. Read his story and don’t let him have suffered and died in vain. Please help the stray dogs and cats in Bosnia-Herzegovina. The situation there is utterly dire, Vučko is but one amongst many horrifically abused animals. Go here to find out how to help them. Money is needed for food, medicine and foster housing. Even just one dollar or one euro will help.
