The Story

Romeo and Juliette are two dogs from the streets of Craiova, Romania. They are possibly siblings, and were named because they were inseparable. Several weeks ago, Romeo was caught by dog catchers and taken to the infamous kill shelter Breasta. Facing death by exceptionally cruel methods, a local woman who had fed and cared for them for the last couple of years, reserved Romeo for us, and got him out and to foster near Bucharest. Juliette however, who for the two weeks following did not eat because of her distress at the separation, eluded capture by her would be rescuers. They were afraid to use tranquiliser due to the high traffic area. Then Juliette disappeared! For a few days she could not be located, and when she did turn up, it was also in the public shelter. A mixed blessing. Juliette is now reserved for us, and will be sent to Bucharest to be reunited with Romeo. It is our pledge that they will not be separated again. We will bring them to Canada in search of a forever home together. This love story will have a happy ending! Please help with a small donation. This will help cover airfare, crates, preps and passports for both dogs.

After many months in foster, we were beginning to wonder if we would be able to find the right family for both Romeo and Juliette together. We were so desperate to keep them together, but had no interest in a bonded pair. Then we were introduced by one of our wonderful Laika adopters in New York, to an equally wonderful person in Connecticut, who was looking to open her home to either a senior, or a bonded pair, both of which are often more difficult to place. While Romeo and Juliette are not quite seniors, they are far from young dogs, so fit both categories.
The adopter fell in love with Romeo and Juliette, and has agreed to welcome them into the family. This pair who touched hearts all over with their sad story, will travel to a new life in the US. She will cover costs of getting one dog to the US, and we will fund the other. 
They've waited so long. Please help us get this deserving pair to a new life! A small donation will join with others, to give a happy ending to this love story!
