Bo for senior dogs

We can say that after being adopted, Bo is living like a celebrity star, enjoying long walks in the Swiss mountains and relaxation time in the jacuzzi. He even climbs alone the house stairs, after his mother carries him (1/3 of her entire weight) in her arms, a few times every day, to build his trust. In Switzerland, Bo has also a gang to share the “dog moments” with.

Bo for senior dogs

We can say that after being adopted, Bo is living like a celebrity star, enjoying long walks in the Swiss mountains and relaxation time in the jacuzzi. He even climbs alone the house stairs, after his mother carries him (1/3 of her entire weight) in her arms, a few times every day, to build his trust. In Switzerland, Bo has also a gang to share the “dog moments” with.

Before being adopted, Bo’s life was hard. It always takes human actions and efforts to change a homeless dog’s life. We don’t know how many more Christmas Holidays Bo will enjoy, we hope for plenty.

Bo was nominated #roldadogs ambassador for 2019 and in Switzerland, he is the sunshine in Lolita’s life, but today, Bo is on a mission to help his furry friends remain in the shelter in Romania.

For the 2019 Christmas campaign, ROLDA selected 7 senior dogs to fundraise for winter costs for the shelter and food for hungry, homeless dogs. No matter which of these 7 dogs you sponsor, the donations are shared with all the others.

Senior Lulu is one of the oldest #roldadogs, but he wasn’t selected for a simple reason: we didn’t think he will make it another winter. One morning, Senior Lulu didn’t come to the door to greet our caretakers because he hardly could stand up and move his back legs. We rushed to the clinic and with adequate treatment, Senior Lulu is back on his feet.

Senior dogs like Senior Lulu can suffer unexpected medical problems which require special attention and which add up to the vet’s total bill. We don’t know what the next Christmas will look like for our giant Senior Lulu but this one should be joyful and free from pain.

Senior Lulu just got sponsored by Nicole, from Switzerland. More supporters will enable us to keep him and the other 300 senior dogs from the ROLDA shelter safe this wintertime.

For dogs like Senior Lulu, Bo takes seriously his ambassador role and aims with your help, to make his furry friends’ lives better in Romania.

Update:

Bo is a senior #roldadog adopted by Lolita in Switzerland.
