Alba and her sister, Blanka were found in an olive grove next door to our partner shelter with their mum Clara who was fiercely protecting her babies. Thankfully, the family of three were taken in to the care of our amazing partner, who helped nurture the young pups and gave them a safe place to await their forever homes.

Alba is a very happy and playful pup! Although she has an energetic side, she is the most relaxed of her family and much prefers the company of humans to that of her mum and sister. Whilst they are often zooming around, Alba would much rather sneak away in search of a tummy rub from her foster carer! Alba is a very affectionate girl at heart, we think she will love bonding with a family of her own and will also relish some peace and quiet, where she won’t have to worry about Blanka interrupting her precious cuddle time!

Alba will have plenty to learn in her new home and given that the world is a very exciting place for a small pup, she can sometimes become distracted during her training sessions, however she does have a few more manners than her sister! Thankfully, Alba’s love of treats (her favourites are apples and bananas!) should be a handy training tool and she is much more patient than Blanka when waiting her turn for a treat, but be careful where they are kept, as Alba has an eagle eye for finding an extra snack when no ones looking!

We would love to find Alba an active home where she has plenty of opportunities to go on exciting adventures where she can let off all her steam. She will also be happy as the only dog in her new home or somewhere with a resident dog, that is calm and relaxed around energetic puppies. Alba can be unsure of dogs that are much bigger than her at first, but with plenty of encouragement she soon makes friends.

Alba hasn’t had any socialisation with cats or children so we will be watching how her puppy personality develops and considering homes on a case by case basis.

Please note, that due to on-going travel restrictions and transport logistics, we currently do not have a transport date in place for dogs travelling from Lesvos. As a result, it may take us longer to reply to applications, thank you for your patience, and rest assured we’ll be in touch to discuss your interest in Alba as soon as possible!
