The female dog of a couple who lived in an illegal campsite became pregnant and gave birth to puppies. When their dog stopped breastfeeding, the couple moved away with their dog, leaving the pups behind. We don’t know how many puppies there were, but an attentive animal rights activist urgently asked us for help, as the area was not fenced in and was on a busy road. We immediately set off, picked up the two remaining puppies and took them to the Place for Strays. Here they are now cherished and cared for until they have been given complete veterinary care and can move into their own forever family.


Urmel is one of the calmer puppies. He is a little shorter than Elsa and, unlike her, he doesn’t bark. He is rather dreamy, every now and then he dives into his own world and then does his own thing, but also likes to play with the other puppies or chew on everything he finds. The little darling also loves to eat. Although he also gets on ones arm to be cuddled, but you can tell that he did not have human contact from the start. He is a little more careful than our other puppies.
