"We would like to introduce our lovely dog to you.
Her name is Esme and we adopted her in February 2021 when she was 5 months old.
Here she is setting off on her journey to Switzerland from Dog Rose in Romania, (at that time she was called Sprinkles)
Esme is our first dog so it has been a wonderful learning experience for us all. I describe her as a “work in progress”! and she probably thinks of us in the same terms although I suspect she has made more progress with us than we with her!
The adoption process with Caroline and Anja was very thorough and well paced so we could consider all the aspects that dog ownership might involve. They were both on hand in the first few months to support and advise us. There were many times in those first few weeks that we needed that!
She soon learnt to sit, and although toilet training took a little time, she was eager to learn new things.
We take her to dog training and she loves running around with her friends, I often think she has some whippet in her, she runs so fast!
It is hard to imagine life without her now.
"Adopting Ari was one of the best decisions we’ve ever made. She brought so much joy into our life! The Dog Rose team not only ensured our new furry family member was the best match for us, but also prepared both Ari and us to start a life together. We felt 110% supported. The Dog Rose team really cares! Even now after having Ari for almost a year, they are at our side to answer questions and share their best practices. Thank you Dog Rose for the amazing work you are doing!"
"We are so happy with our new dog Minnie from the Dog Rose shelter in Romania! Everything was handled with the utmost professionality and care. We received videos of Minnie in the shelter, had a video call with the veterinarian caring for Minnie and got lots of information about her health and well-being. We trusted the Dog Rose team 100% that we would get a healthy, loving dog that would adapt to life in Switzerland within a few weeks. Caroline from the adoption team guided us in every step to make the transition as easy as possible and her lovely daughter Angelina even came to dog-sit one evening. The whole family (including our dog Taffy) loves, loves, loves little Minnie and can’t imagine life without her. We couldn’t be happier with the Dog Rose shelter and are recommending an adoption with Dog Rose to anybody open to adopting a wonderful street dog. Thank you very much for your hard and important work with the street dogs of Romania!"
"Best shelter ever. We had such a nice impressions from how they place dogs in the right families to the shelter in Romania. They treat the dogs so well and the transport was so professionally organized.We could not be happier from our experience and we absolutely recommend getting in touch with the team if you are interested in adopting a furry family member ❤️Thank you for bringing our Mila to us . We could not imagine life without her anymore"
"Auf der Suche nach einer Wegbegleiterin, welcher eine zweite Chance braucht, stossten wir auf DogRose.
Die Kontaktaufnahme ging promt! Nach dem Ausfüllen des Formulars folgte ein Videocall, man lernte sich kennen. Die Erwartungen sowie Möglichkeiten wurden geklärt.
Ein paar Tage später folgten zuckersüsse Bilder, Videocalls und die Beschreibung warum diese eine Hundedame zu uns passen würde!
Ein paar Wochen später kam die kleine Emi, via Flugpate bei uns an. Es wurde alles organisiert und dank Anja hatten wir Understützung bei der Ankunft am Flughafen, vor Ort.
Die Ankunft- und Kennenlernphase wurde ganz eng und sehr empathisch durch Caroline begleitet. Immer und jederzeit erreichbar!
Nach nun 7 Monaten sind Emi und wir ein Herz & eine Seele. 🤎
Wir sind glücklich durch Dogrose unsere Wegbegleiterin gefunden zu haben!
Schön, dass es euch gibt und ihr den Tieren in Rumänien eine zweite Chance ermöglicht! Dankeschön ♡
Sharon, Kenan & Emi"
"Caroline und ihr Team hat uns von der ersten Kontaktaufnahme bis zur Übergabe und darüber hinaus eng begleitet. Damit gaben sie uns die Sicherheit auch als Ersthundebesitzer den Anforderungen gewachsen zu sein. Dank lückenlosen Papieren sind auch Auslandreisen kein Problem. Unser Hund Curry ist fit und Munter und bereichert unser Leben jeden Tag aufs neue."
"Dog Rose team personalised the whole adoption process to our situation (I.e. a 4 year old female dog (not neutered at that time), flat, two full time jobs and frequent travelling (with dogs). Bea’s character was taken into account and a female puppy was recommended. We had a lot of video calls to see the puppy (Lizzy) in action and discuss details. We also got support and advice before and after the adoption. Caroline and Anna shared their contacts of the vet (for neutering surgery) and dog trainer. When we had follow up questions, Caroline and Anna were available to answer them on a short notice. Overall, we really enjoyed working with the Dog Rose team and would definitely recommend adopting from their shelter. It was important for us that the team is also selective with adopters and doesn’t just want to get their dogs adopted by anyone which sadly some shelters do. It is worth mentioning that when we first brought Lizzy to the vet in Switzerland, the vet acknowledge that Lizzy was in a great condition and healthy, which means the shelter took good care of her."
"In 2020 we’ve adopted our lovely dog Mollie from Dog Rose. We are perfectly happy and love her so much. The dogs from the organisation are very good socialized, in perfect shape and the team is amazing. You can feel the dedication and the love for every animal. We recommend Dog Rose with all our heart!"
"Ich habe noch nie im Leben so ein langes Formular ausfüllen müssen, nicht einmal für die Hypothek unseres Hauses. Wir waren sehr beeindruckt und haben auf unser Adoptionsformular noch am gleichen Tag Antwort bekommen. Danach ging alles sehr schnell. Es hat alles gepasst. Wir hatten nie ein Problem mit Dima und unseren Kindern."
