The adoption process

All adoptions are subject to a homecheck.  This will be carried out by an experienced home-checker who will visit your home at a mutually convenient time to go through a series of questions to ensure that your lifestyle and home environment are suitable for the dog you wish to adopt. 


If the homecheck is successful, you will be asked to pay the adoption fee of £250 to reserve your new furry friend.  £175 of this covers the transport fee (see below) and £75 goes towards the cost of vaccinations and the EU Pet Passport.  For your security and peace of mind, we generally ask for the adoption fee to be paid through Paypal, however we are able to accept other forms of payment should you prefer.  Receipts will be provided.


All dogs are vaccinated, microchipped, wormed & flea treated before travelling.  Each dog comes with their own EU Pet Passport & an Export Certificate is generated for TRACES (a system for tracking the movement of animals and products of animal origin from both outside of, and within, the European Union).  


We use a company called A2B Pet Transport to bring our dogs to the UK.  A2B Pet Transport are fully DEFRA (Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs) approved.  Their vans are heated, ventilated and air conditioned to ensure the animals travel as comfortably as possible.


The dogs leave Romania on a Day 1 and arrive in the UK on Day 3.  The TRACES scheme dictates that after entry into the UK, the dogs have to stay at their approved kennels (in Essex) for 48 hours whilst they, and their paperwork, is checked. 


The dogs are released in the morning of Day 4 and can either be be collected directly from the TRACES kennels or from Leicestershire or Oxfordshire, to which A2B Pet Transport provide free onward transport.  Specific dates of the transport runs will be provided when you enquire/reserve a dog.
