River is being fostered on main land Greece but Sue Deeth can arrange for him to travel to you in much the same way as she does her own rescues…

River has a very sad story. He was found on the mainland of Greece in a river (hence his name) inside a sack. River’s neck was bound with rope and his back feet tied together with wire. He had many cuts especially on his face and was of course totally traumatised. He was found a year ago by a lovely lady who has cared for him since and brought him back to health, sadly she is unable to keep him herself, as she rescues many pups and dogs on mainland Greece. So she has asked us┬áto help to find him the best home.

River is approximately 3 years old, 67cm high from shoulder to floor, weighs 36 kilos
He looks like a Mountain dog mixed with a Retriever or Labrador. His head is like a Mountain dog but his body smaller like a Retriever! He has the most beautiful thick bear like creamy white coat. He has the character of a Labrador.

River loves female dogs but is not so good with the boys but he is great with cats! Obviously not suitable for families with young children. River is wonderful with those people he knows and has gained their trust, but he may take a while to settle. He needs an experienced dog parent who can help him to blossom into the boy he should be. He loves to go for walks and is good on a lead. River enjoys the car and he is house trained too. His foster mummy says ‘he needs a little bit of time to trust humans. When he trusts them he is a sweetheart, he never stops kissing me, but he needs a person to have time to devote to him’

River is a healthy dog, he has had all his vaccinations, blood tested clear and been sterilized. He is ready to travel to his special home.

He lives on the mainland still so Sue has not personally met him, but is happy to put you in touch with the rescue group that have helped him…
