I think this blog entry is the most difficult I’ve had to write, so many emotions are involved. Robyn Wire pulled out a lot from we humans, our honesty and miseries to name a few emotions. She reunited people and she got people to break up with each other. She brought out positive words and thoughts, she brought out negative talk.

It still hurts, I still look into her former room and wait for her to look at me with those big, curious, scared and wild eyes. She was desperate for her freedom and we “saved” her from her freedom when she tried to escape.

We were afraid of letting her back in the wilderness with only three legs, afraid she wouldn’t survive. Ironic now!

Some wanted her to be put down to sleep, we got horrified at the thought.
Ironic now!

You can read her story from earlier blogs.

As you know, she stayed at the hospice were we were many who loved and cared for her. Every day we sat in her room with her. Lynn brought a fan so she could be cooler. Pio was the first one to take her on a leash, walking her out. It was magic to see her, and how she trusted us volunteers.

She destroyed a whole room, so eager to get out. The balcony door was so eaten and chewed that the windows were falling out, our bookcase totally destroyed and the door — she ate her through a double door. Pio had safe-proofed the whole yard, likewise had Patty. High steel fence surrounded the garden, and she did fine with the other clients. We were five shifts during the days, and during the night they were all locked in their rooms. She was amazing on three legs, better than those with four legs. She jumped up on 1 meter high walls, tried to jump from balconies, climbed fences from a big pen she was locked in (It’s in the middle of the yard).

Plans were made for her. A special handicapped harness was ordered for her back in the States by her special sponsor, Craig.

Tammy (she and her husband originally found her in the woods) contacted Best Friend org in the States, Ms Jill asking them to save Robyn at their Sanctuary for animals with special needs.

But on this recent day we lost Robyn in a tragic accident. Still I can see it, still I can smell. It was (is) a big shock, and still I see her when I close my eyes. Finally she got her freedom. Martina, Pio and I buried her in my yard. It was a painful education what brought out the truth in many of we humans.

You never know if you are doing the right thing, until you have the future in your hands. Maybe that’s Amore.

RIP Robyn Wire, you were a true fighter.



Our Craig from Los Angeles did it again, he is our AWL Guardian Angel. He donated money for Robyn’s surgery/amputation. Thank you so much, you are our hero.

Also Lena Lilier donated to “Sweet Robyn” so we could go back to Dr Damiani for a health check afterwards.

Himmelska Hundar Milla and Kate donated also for Robyn, AWL were able to buy painkiller.
AWL Sweden sent AWL International, donations from different members in Sweden, and from donation jars in HH cafe’

But Robyn has destroyed a whole room and we have no money to cover those expense. We were promised donations for her, but these persons decided later on not to donate when they heard that Robyn’s surgery was covered. Please we need help.

Ulla Linders sent donation to buy dog food for Adrianna’s shelter which we did (see preview blog)

Mille Grazie Sandri Federica soldi donatzione. That’s Amore.



Rob was out hiking with 5 of his dogs this morning as he does every weekend, and Stewart one of their dogs, was barking at something in some bushes and would not leave. Rob usually ignores them when they bark but Stewart was very insistent. Rob went over to investigate and it was this dog with its leg twisted behind it stuck in a trap.

Rob came home and got his wife Tammy and they hiked back up with wire cutters, towels and a crate to carry her. Tammy got under the brush and held her (she was strangely calm as though she was giving up on life) while Rob cut away at the wire that was holding her to the ground. They gently put her in the crate and walked back home.

Tammy called AWL whho promised to stepp in and help. Tammy called and Dr Damiani rushed into his clinic on his day off (Sunday) HeDr Damiani had a difficult time getting the wire trap off her leg – it was very thick wire and very tight around her bone. He has never seen a trap like this before and it made Tammy think of how many other animals may be out there slowly dying.

AWL named her Robyn after her rescue team (Rob) She will stay at Dr Damiani and undergo steralization and Dr Damiani found she also has hernia. She will have to have her right lower leg amputated. When she can she will get her health back at rehab/hospice (AWL)

It will cost around 500 Euros to pay her vet bills and bring her back to health. We will do our best, but we need your help now! Please go to and make a donation—any donation you can make will help us save Robyn! But we need your help NOW! Please share this with your friends!”
