Malou (Lou)

Age: 2 years

Gender: Female

Size: Medium

Location: Bognor Regis. Sussex

HISTORY: Malou and her sibling Lotus were rescued from a canal as tiny pups by pound staff, they lived in at the pound for some months before we were able to move them to our shelter before finally being moved into one of our Serbian foster home.

IDEAL HOME: Malou has grown in confidence in her foster home and could be rehomed with a home with a resident dog already in place or do just as well as the only dog. We would be looking for a home that is willing to put in the training that a young dog requires. We would not be looking to rehome Malou into a busy city or town, a home that could offer quieter walks for her to relax into would be ideal.

CHILDREN: Due to her initial shy nature children aged 12 years+.

OTHER DOGS: Malou could be in a home with another dogs, with slow introductions we feel this would work well, she is a playful girl so having a dog who was happy to play and bound about would be beneficial but she could also go to a home as the only dog. The home must be prepared to give her as long as she needs to feel comfortable in her surroundings.

CATS: Malou hasn't shown any negativity towards cats. With slow introductions we feel this wouldn’t be a problem for her.

HEALTH: Malou had a health check before leaving Serbia. She comes in at around 20 Kg. She is fully vaccinated, microchipped, flea, wormed and neutered.

FOSTER: Malou is in foster in the Bognor Regis area. A few words from her UK foster family “Malou, who we call Lou, is getting used to her new environment inside and out on walks. She's crate trained, travels well in the car, great with other dogs. She is walking better on her harness and lead; toilet trained and sleeps through at night."

CRITERIA: We adopt our dogs to an area in England within a 3-hour drive of Cobham in Surrey. If the home has a garden, it must be secure and have at least 6 ft boundaries.

If you feel you can offer the right home and you match our criteria, please complete our pre adoption form here: and press SEND.

Home check and £400 adoption fee applies plus £25 for the safety harness that we insist all of our dogs are walked on until absolutely settled in their new home.

All of our dogs come with a pet passport, are vet checked before departing and arrive via a DEFRA registered transportation vehicle.

Serbia’s forgotten paws has been operating for over 10 years and has rehomed over 1,200 in the UK.

We offer full support and rescue back up (RBU) for the lifetime of all of our dogs.
