Ciuf is living with a foster carer in Wisbech while she waits to find a new home after being rescued along with 40 other dogs as part of a mission by UK registered charity Paws2Rescue.

Alison Standbridge of the charity, said: “We have 15 teams members in the UK, Germany and USA and many more foster carers.

“We help Romanian dogs have a better life and help a lucky few to find loving homes in the UK. We raise money and send desperately needed food, beds and treats over to Romania to our shelters where we strive to care for as many dogs as we can.

“The EU allows each member country to manage their own stray animal population. Sadly the answer in Romania is to inhumanely capture and kill any dog not on private property - including pets who are allowed out of their yards to play.

“Life in Romania for any dog is a living hell - begging for food, they are tortured, beaten and abused daily.”

Ciuf is a year old shepherd cross who was rescued six months ago after her mum was captured and killed.

“Ciuf was skin and bone, and had no way of finding food. One month ago, Paws2Rescue brought her to the UK to an amazing foster family in Wisbech to teach her how to live inside a home, and how to be a dog in the UK.

“Ciuf is gentle and intelligent, great with humans and other dogs, she is a very loving girl. With Mother’s Day coming up we really would love for Ciuf to find her forever mum.”
