    Weʼve raised £675 to bring Doggo the German Shepherd to the UK

    Funded on Sunday, 24th September 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    This is Doggo, the German Shepherd, who Greek Animal Rescue are asking to raise £750 to treat and bring home to the UK from Larissa.

    Doggo followed a group of volunteers working at a refugee camp in the area home in the early hours of the morning, limping, but still wanting love, and not remotely nervous of people.

    He sat outside their gate in a ball, giving the occasional whimper, and eventually they gave in and let him into their courtyard. He was well behaved, cuddly, and curled up on the blanket put outside the front door. In the morning he was taken to a vet and it was found he was chipped and had been in the shelter, but was not adopted and was released.

    He had a fracture in his leg that wasn't properly treated so now doesn't weight bear on it (as you can see in the video) and is clearly uncomfortable. Despite this, he is an absolute sweetheart. We believe Doggo has lived in a house before as has good

    manners, waits to go to the bathroom until he's on the street, and he absolutely loves snuggles and is happy to meet every new person he comes across.

    Winter on the streets of Larissa is no place for a friendly, lame dog, to live, and Doggo's chances will be slim. Any donation will help GAR raise the funds needed to treat, vaccinate, house and fly him home to a new life in the UK - thank you again for your support.

      There is some great news, and some bad news on Doggo. The great news is that he now has the offer of a UK FOSTER home, where he can be safe and very well looked after until his permanent family are found, which is brilliant. However, the costs of treating him and boarding him until he can be flown to the UK have come in higher than hoped, so I am appealing once again for your help to raise an additional £250 to secure Doggo's future. The gorgeous ladies who found him have put together this video of him so you can see how adorable he is! x
