It seemed fated when the AFOT Committee saw little Arya running for her life in Calis. She was scooped up and is now ready for the next exciting chapter of her life.

On a special committee trip to Turkey in April 2022, Arya was first noticed running down the streets of Calis opposite Ali’s bar on 5th April 22. AFOT was hosting a special Remembrance Day to one our dearly departed committee members and animal activists, Mollie Vann.

Spotting this brave little pup on this important day seemed like a sign. She looked so small and vulnerable being harassed by other street dogs and a search party immediately set out to look for her, sadly to no avail – she seemed to have completely disappeared!

Arya the Brave!

She was seen over the next few days in the same area by other people but it wasn’t until a lunch outing by two of our volunteers that Arya was actually found again, walking down the prom.

She was whisked straight to the vets where, despite being ravenously hungry and covered in ticks and fleas, she was in surprisingly good condition. She was estimated to be approximately 5 months old and seemed to love all of the fuss she was getting. The AFOT team was smitten.

Finally found Sanctuary!

Arya then went into quarantine at our sanctuary as she wasn’t vaccinated and then she was moved to another AFOT foster carer to be put in with another pair of pups. She immediately took to them and they play endlessly.

A little dog-fox!

Arya is like a little dog-fox, a terrier mix with a beautiful rich red coat. At 8 months (July 2022) she weighs in the region of 10kg and will only be a small dog when fully grown.

This girl is very affectionate and loves to play and runs almost as fast as a greyhound – probably the reason it took us so long to catch her! In fact she loves to run and is always on the go.

So affectionate with her foster mum.

Arya is not cat tested, but very dog friendly and will make someone a lovely pet.

Being so young she will need ongoing kind and consistent training so needs someone who can provide the time and patience to do just that. In return you will get a loving, funny girl who will keep you entertained and on your toes in typical terrier fashion.

Such a cheeky little face!

So, now it’s time to find Arya her new loving family in UK. If you think that could be you then please check out what’s involved in taking on one of our rescue dogs by clicking this link and reading our Dog Adoption Policy guidelines.
