Puppy Eric passed from pillar to post finds his loving home

Young rescue puppy Eric has seen nothing but change in his few short months.

Ever since birth he has been passed from pillar to post until he came on to the radar of Animal Friends of Turkey.

AFOT first became aware of him after he was dumped in the shelter by a family that was no longer prepared to care for him.

We took him out of there and put him temporarily in kennels while we looked to find him a foster home where he could be looked after better.

We were fortunate enough to find a lovely lady who took him into her home in Izmir and he was happy there for a while.

Unfortunately her circumstances changed meaning she could no longer keep him so she helped us find another foster home in Dalyan. This is where he is now and for now he appears to have some stability.

Gorgeous rescue puppy Eric looks small but is medium in size

Since then we have been working on preparing him for his transport to the UK and we are delighted that he now looks set to start a new life with a new family.

Eric is around nine months old and is totally gorgeous.

He looks very small in these photographs but in reality he is a medium sized dog.

He is a little bit naughty as you might expect from a young puppy and he can get a little bit over excited at times. He has since been neutered and has since calmed down a little.

He is already house trained but he will benefit from being with owners who can give him a guiding hand through training, love and patient care.

He is fine with other dogs as well as cats, and is also very good with children.

Eric will be ready to travel to the UK to his new home in around July of this year when he will be around 11 months old.

Eric is a mischievous and lovable young puppy

One look at Eric is enough to melt anyone’s heart and we are hoping that there is someone out there with the time and love in their hearts to offer him a home.
