The Dog Story Behind The Dress: MONA

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…

  This is one of our most precious stories, and it is about this amazing black and white mix, Mona who was abandoned on the Romanian streets as a small puppy with her brothers and sisters. After their capture they were put in the public shelter of Bucov (Romania). They grew up here, not knowing what love, a home or even fresh water was. Most of Mona's siblings died during their first few months of life. Only Mona and her sister Lisa stayed strong.

Bodenlang Animal rescue dogs

The two girls have been living in the shelter for a year and a half, when BODENLANG founder Jenny saw them and immediately decided to rescue them.

In July 2016 Mona moved in with Jenny – as a foster dog. The plan was to find the perfect family for Mona, but the plan soon had changed. This clever and curious dog stole Jenny´s heart with her special character, and it soon became clear, that she had already found the perfect home. Jenny didn't plan on keeping Mona, but it only took a few weeks for them to form a bond that will last a lifetime. She is now the number one dog ambassador for the BODENLANG Animal Rescue projects, living a happy life with Jenny. You will see a lot more of Mona on all our social media channels, as we just LOVE this smart and pretty lady!
