 Ones, she was someone’s dog! 
Luna was chained and abuse while being strapped to a chain. She couldn’t escape to defend herself. Luna was trapped by the brutality, from a humans hand. She was going to die anyway, since she have a heart failure and they didn’t give her any medications. 

Luna is a gorgeous German Shepard only 2 years old.

She was “rescued” to one of the horrible shelters, locked into a cage. One volunteer couldn’t bear to see this beautiful dog dying inside that cage. Despite being neglected and abused Luna is so full out of love and gratefulness. Flavia the volunteer asked if we AWL could help her if she fostered Luna.
You see, Luna is probably not going to have long time left here on Earth. The shelter veterinarian said, maybe 6 months.
AWL wants to help with the sponsoring of medicine/food and I would love if we could sponsor a second opinion of her heart issue. Think if?

Luna needs food and special medicine. Our veterinarian would cost 100 euro to hire a heart specialist. Medicine 150 euro/

Luna deserves a life like she has now, with a lot of love, dog friends, free in a garden and medication.

Please help us help Luna to have the best time in her life. She so deserves it.

It started with a very strange feeling inside my heart, like my mind also would explode. Tears flooded along my check, I couldn’t stop!
 I read the sentences over and over, again like I would hope to find a thread that would tell me she still was alive. I had never met her personally, this gorgeous English setter that I saw on pictures.  Her story caught my attention and heart, as well as many others in AWL. We got pictures and we were all amazed away by her beauty and shyness.
The pictures off her made me just want to scoop her up and hold her in my arms. I couldn’t understand why, it was only a picture I had in front of me. 
We volunteers  laughed when volunteer Lori posted the picture of the same dog as I on our AWL conversation wall, asking if we could please take care of this sweet girl. Martina our English setter expert and I planned what room this beautiful dog would have. We laughed even more, since I was sitting in another conversation communicating with the lady that had rescued the dog that we would love to help her finding the dog Carolina a home.
Even the name made us smile.

Carolina’s story was not unique, this happen with many dogs in her breed. It was the same with the greyhounds in Spain or Britain.
No value when not achieving his or her purpose anymore, no one even spends a bullet on a breed like that.
Carolina was rescued from a hard life. As an abandon hunting dog, she had no more value and was left for the unknown to finish her life.
The dog was spotted in a rainy day, from a car window. Behind the wheel sat a lady who couldn’t take her eyes away from the dog. It was like she could feel that something was wrong with the dog. 
A white longhaired dog with some golden beige spots, a beautiful female English setter was tangled up in bushes she
couldn’t move. It was pouring down and cold. The dog had probably been tangled up and getting splashed by passing cars and not had the possibility to get out of the way. The lady stopped and helped the female dog lose from the bushes. 
The dog ran away glad for its freedom, but the ladies could not forget this beautiful dog, even from their short meeting.
The next day the lady drove to the place again. The whole evening before she couldn’t stop thinking about this white beauty, and it was the first thought on her mind when she woke up. The lady drove to the same place again to see if she could find her.  To her pleasant surprise the dog was there!
The dog was filthy and hungry but thankful for the food that was given to her.
The lady took her under her wings and told her she could come with her home.
Carolina followed the lady and let her be bathed, let the children curiously say hello to her. The next day she  went to the veterinarian for check up. They found a scare on her belly and realized someone had spayed her earlier.

A couple of days later she became more and more tired, and didn’t want to walk all those steps up to the third floor. Carolina only wanted to sleep. One vet said she was old! 
But my English setter expert Martina said, eight years is not an age for that kind of breed.
Suddenly she got diarrhea and peed on herself. Carolina preferred to sleep out on the porch (and that was not normal for her) like showing the family she wanted peace and quiet. The last steps down she fell, stumbled down. She didn’t want to get up, her breathing became heavier and heavier. She was being carried up to their apartment. An appointment with the veterinarian on base was being done and they could come in the afternoon.
I wrote to the lady to stay strong, something internal was not doing well in Carolinas body.
Carolina got a seizure! The neighbor heard the lady’s scream for help and rushed in. They drove quickly to the veterinarian, were Carolina died. They made an ultrasound/x ray and discovered either a surgical sponge or metal suture left inside her abdomen after an earlier surgery by someone we don’t know of.
It had now adhered itself to her colon. Her entire abdomen was full of infections.
Her life couldn’t be saved!

The lady stayed by her side holding her paw while the euthanasia injection was given.
The lady wrote to me, “I was with her as they gave her the injection and I hope she wasn’t in any pain. Thank you for trying to help find her a home. The guilt I feel now is unbelievable. Poor sweet girl”
Only three months of a family life did Carolina get to know. We all are in shock to find out about this brutal surgery someone have made in the past.
She was not spayed, only one ovary had been removed.
This story is not having a happy ending. Hopefully this story can show us many things, from brutality and ignorance to kindness and love.
Carolina died knowing she was loved by many and not forgotten like trash caught in thorn bushes at a rainy day.
Run free dear Carolina, healthy and strong. I hope you can forgive us for being such a destroying selfish kind. Let the sun shine on your story, and hopefully it will touch many more hearts in this world.
That’s Amore!





 Mr. President Before and After.

He is looking for a new office…..
He is an amazing little man, and I’d really like to see him find his perfect family. This is his story. About six months ago I noticed that a shaggy black dog was helping the gate guards at the entrance to Carney park Italy. He could always be seen laying near the guard shack. I nearly never went to Carney Park without seeing him. The guards affectionately named him “Mr. President”. About two months ago, I noticed his absence and asked the guards where he had gone. They didn’t know. I heard comments from other park goers about seeing him in the park with an injury and limp. About two weeks later he was again at the gate, this time with two separate sets of stitches for either a mauling or a brush with an automobile. It was very very cold and rainy and he was shivering uncontrollably in the weather, and the wounds were open to infection. I took him home. At the time, he could not navigate up or down the single stair required to get to the grass to pee. He immediately went to sleep and slept for what seemed like days. After about a week, I noticed that he was moving better up and down stairs, had a nice strong appetite, and his expression in the face looked happier. I got him a haircut, vaccinations, deworming, neutering (with your help- thank you AWL) and began looking for a home for him. He did a home trial with a woman who was interested in him, but she decided to return him to me. Since then, he has fattened up, had another clipping (He looks like a full bred wire hair daschund!) and become a big personality in our house. He gets along with cats, dogs, and little boys (I have two), and has excellent manners in the home. He has never had an accident, rarely barks, and always greets you with a wagging tail and a little daschund dance. He is between 5-7 years old according to Dr. Longo. He has some grey in the face– but I think he has some great and happy years to spend with a family that is ready to love him.



 UP FOR ADOPTION VIA AWL Gracie is a medium sized dog she weighs about 30 lbs. She is about 2 and a half years old. Gracie is up to date on all her shots and she is spayed. She is great with kids and very playful. Gracie is crate trained and house trained. Right now is Gracie  in a foster home and she loves to run but unfortunately the family dont have the space ( apartment) She isn’t real keen on stray cats but have been introduced — lately– to cats while she was on a leash and she didnt mind. 

She will come with her crate, toys and food. Gracie was rescued from a family that had her in a kennel most of her life/muzzeled. 

She still is not arfaid of her kennel and is not the average “Naples” dog she is easy to train and sweet.
