Luna is already 10 years old and has had a hard life. At first, she was given up by her owner, but then she was lucky enough to be adopted by a very kind woman. Unfortunately, this woman had to return her to the shelter due to health reasons. Now, Luna is in a cage at APAD since 2021. She seems depressed, is not eating well, and is very sad. She has given up. But she is still waiting for someone to scratch her belly and give her some love. We don’t want Luna to spend her last years in the shelter…

Give Luna a chance to show you her love.

Luna prefers to be the sole princess in your home, without other animals around. She wants your love all to herself. In return, she will be a calm and undemanding companion, always loyal and ready to protect you.

Are you a Bull Terrier enthusiast with experience in handling dogs? If so, you will find great joy in Luna, and the two of you will get along splendidly. Luna will keep you company, accompany you in the garden, and your life. Come and visit Luna !!

WENDY and WALDO,  our inseparable couple, adapt very well in their foster home. Waldo has recovered very well from his operation and now we are urgently looking for a forever foster for the two of them together. A home with lots of love and a sofa. The foster now is going on a trip in March, so we are urgently looking for a new home so they don’t have to go back to a cage in the shelter. Please share with friends, family….. APAD pays all veterinary expenses.

Boby Brown is terminally ill with cancer. Our wish is that he can spend his last days in a home surrounded by affection and love. He was always well looked after, but his owner passed away. He is very good with people and loves cuddles. The vet bills are covered by APAD, food if needed too! Contact us if you can help! info@apad-apad.org

Jimmy is now 13 years old and has spent 7 of them behind bars… His owners brought him to the shelter when he was 6 years old because he had bitten the neighbour. We were not told why or what the trigger for the biting was. Now Jimmy’s greatest wish is to spend his last days in a home with a little love, warmth and security. There is nothing sadder than when a dog soul leaves this world alone in his cage. Therefore, we will not stop looking a (foster)home for Jimmy.

Not only does his handsome and friendly look remind you of a red fox, but also his intelligence and cleverness make Jimmy very capable of learning. He understands and learns quickly when you have found a way to communicate with him.
We now know that Jimmy chooses his people himself, whom he then approaches and lets himself be petted and cuddled. Jimmy needs some time to gain confidence, he doesn’t like being touched and caressed by everyone, he will bite without warning. However, if there is mutual sympathy, a bond can already start to form at the first encounter. Once you have found access to his heart, Jimmy is a loyal and affectionate dog.
As a senior dog, he is of course house-trained and goes for walks on a loose leash, which he then thoroughly enjoys. He does not want to be petted by strangers, random people on the street and he would prefer to have his person all to himself. Jimmy can’t be trusted around children, small dogs and cats, children might want to touch him without asking and other small creatures he thinks are prey.
In the house, Jimmy is a quiet roommate who likes to find a cosy place to doze off, or from time to time checks the house to make sure everything is okay.
Who would like to give our Jimmy a few more beautiful years and give him the love he deserves? We would love to hear from you!
August 2021: JIMMY ADOPTED!!!!
