Ollie and Nellie rescued from Bosnia

Two beautiful fourteen month year old girls – Ollie and Nellie were rescued from a puppy farm in Bosnia where they lived their life in a transport box.

The volunteers at the refuge did what they could, but Ollie and Nellie needed a home environment in order to thrive. They were so traumatised, their body language said it all. When we saw the girls plight, there was no hesitation in bringing them to the UK to start a new life.

Pointers In Need agreed to help and within a month they both arrived safely at their fosterer’s home. The two girls endured a long journey from Bosnia, first travelling into Hungary and then on to the UK. They were so tired and exhausted, their fosterer had to carry them in to the garden.

Little by little and with the help of the fosterer’s other Pointers, Ollie and Nellie started to settle down.

Both girls were luck enough to find their forever homes. A happy ending for the girls!
