The Dog Story Behind The Dress: VALENTINA

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 …


We found Valentina at the Romanian shelter under terrible conditions. Her skin was fully infected and she had already lost most of her fur. The bad hygiene situation in her kennel made everything even worse. We immediately grabbed the little girl and brought her to a clinic where they took good care of her for a few days. Out of the clinic she directly moved to Germany where her foster family looked after her carefully. After a few weeks, Valentinas skin healed and her fur grew all back. She soon got adopted and is now enjoying her life with her family and has hopefully forgotten everything about her sad and hard past.

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.
