Rescue pup Eddie rescued from a cruel world but is now safe and sound and loved

Eddie and his siblings were born in an area notorious for the persecution of its street dogs. They were rescued and brought into AFOT care. Today Eddie is safe and happy with his new family in Devon. Here is his original story …

Eddie is another of the pups who came into the world as one of a litter of nine born in one of the most inhospitable areas of Turkey.

He was born in a place called Nidge which is notorious for the cruelty the residents there show to dogs born to the streets.

His mother Lady and all nine puppies were rescued and taken away from there by animal welfare volunteers.

Eddie has a wonderful temperament and a love for life

They managed to find homes for all but four of the pups and Eddie is one of those.

It was then that Animal Friends of Turkey agreed to step in to help find Eddie and his three homeless siblings a safe, loving home of their own in the UK.

The pups are all of mixed breed and he shows all the signs of being a loyal and faithful companion.

Eddie is such a friendly boy

Eddie was found a home initially in Turkey but unfortunately that has not worked out due to the fact that he chewed a carpet there. Chewing is not unusual in young dogs and is something that they can be quite quickly trained not to do.

Eddie is a large dog and about the size of a German Shepherd weighing in around 27-30kg.

Eddie loves his fuss

He is just over a year old and will be around 16 months old when he is ready to travel to the UK in the New Year.

He is happy in his foster home and gets on with all the other dogs being super dog friendly. He has also been good with the grandchildren and is cat friendly too.

Eddie has a wonderful and gentle nature and a loving, calm temperament. With the right care and training he will make a lovely pet.

Eddie travels well in the car and is also very good on the lead.

He is getting some basic training but this will need to continue when he gets to the UK.

He has really nice manners and is clearly a very intelligent dog to listens to everything that is going on around him.
