Alice is an absolute joy to be around; she is so friendly and loves and trusts people despite her hard life prior to being rescued. She was found emaciated and chained under a lorry abandoned and left to die, her ears and tail had also been cut off but as you can see this doesn’t detract from her beauty. It is common practice in Greece to cut off dog’s ears as according to them it makes them hear better!
Once she was rescued she has spent 2 years in a Greek animal shelter with the rescuers doing their best to care for her and hundreds of other dogs.
The journey from Greece to the UK took 3 days by road, but despite this she is perfectly comfortable in the car. As soon as she arrived she has taken everything in her stride, for a dog that has never lived in doors you’d think she’d lived in a house all of her life! We were expecting to toilet train her but amazingly she hasn’t had any accidents and stands by the backdoor waiting when she needs the toilet! She is a very large dog, between a Labrador and Great Dane size which we know is against in her in finding her a home. However despite her size she is not boisterous indoors and is a big gentle giant. Alice is good on and off the lead; she is very strong on the lead but using a Halti really helps.
She is happiest when she is running free off the lead but always comes back to you. She would need an enclosed garden and be happier having an active lifestyle where she can enjoy decent walks. She is also starting to play with toys which she loves.
Alice is still looking for her forever home. She is fantastic and friendly with people and children. Also good with horses.
She just wants to nuzzle people and is so happy to meet everyone.
Alice is 4 years old, Microchipped, spayed and vaccinated.
Alice would prefer to be the only dog in a home and no cats.
