These three have come a long way from rough streets and dire pounds in Romania. They now find themselves in what must be one of the world's poshest sanctuaries, Dog Tales, and after being checked out by the staff vet and behaviourists, they are ready for adoption.
Frankie and Champ both have that sweet shyness thing down to an art, where they're not so shy they're hiding but just shy enough to look endearing. Champ is the more tentative of the two but even he wanders up for snacks and quiet pats.
Frankie just has to tilt his head and everyone goes, Awww. I think he knows how to work the crowd.
Here's little Frankie giving a nose hello to Robin, a Romanian dog sponsor.
There is a chance Frankie and Champ may be getting adopted out together as a bonded pair. Please confirm with Dog Tales first as to their relationship status if you're interested in adopting.
And here's Henry, a little foggy eyed but that doesn't put the slightest damper on his joy of being able to run in big circles outside on the grass.

Now these guys are safe and almost at the end of their journey to homes of their own.
Several people were involved in bringing them to Toronto and all deserve much thanks:
Lisa (Connect-a-Pet), who was at the center of organizing this transport, Cindy (K9 Aid International) in Australia, Lynda, Jana, Janis and Jeff in the U.S. who donated their the frequent flyer points to my flight, Raluca and Madalina in Romania, and Randy (Firefighter Dog Rescue).
