The Naming Of Our Dresses: SAM

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…



Sam is one of the biggest sweethearts we ever came across. Caught on the streets by dog hunters at the ago of two, Sam lived in the public dog shelter in Bucov for one year.

Jenny met Sam during one of her visits. Sam constantly escaped from her kennel and followed Jenny no matter where she went. When there was work to do inside a kennel, Sam quietly waited outside and tried to "help" wherever she could. Every morning, Sam desperately waited for Jenny behind the main entrance. By the end of her stay, Jenny had decided to get Sam out with the next transporter. Two weeks later she welcomed her in Germany and soon found a wonderful home for this beautiful and clever dog.

There are plenty of more stories to tell… If you are willing to help, send us an email and follow us on Instagram @bodenlang  and  @bodenlang.animals . We are always looking for new homes and volunteers who would like to join us on our trips to Romania. Together with your help, we can make the living conditions of the dogs a little bit better, make sure that they get food, medical help and the chance of a loving home.
