The Dog Story Behind The Dress: LISA
We have mentioned before that all our dresses are named after dogs that we rescued from Romania. We would like to share some of their stories with you...
Lisa was abandoned on the Romanian streets as a small puppy together with her brothers and sisters. The group got caught by dog hunters and put into the public shelter of Bucov (Romania) where they grew up. Not knowing what love, a home or even fresh water is, most of Lisas siblings died during their first months of life. But Lisa and her sister Mona made it. The two dogs were living in a small kennel together with twenty-five other dogs and managed to grow up under devastating living conditions. However, Lisa wasn’t as strong as Mona, didn’t grow as tall as her and was attacked by other dogs in her kennel over and over again.
Up to now it is very difficult for Jenny to know that she was unable to rescue Lisa. This wonderful dog was unable to find out that there is more in life than fear, hunger, cold and dirt. Lisa will remain in our hearts forever – but unfortunately hundreds of nameless dogs/animals are dying out there on their own day by day.
