Raya Needs a Home

About Raya

My Name is… Raya

I am… Approximately 14 months of age

I am… Female

I am from… Italy (Due to arrive January 2020)

Can I be rehomed with other dogs? Under Assessment

Can I be rehomed with cats? No

Can I be rehomed with children? Older, over 10 years.


Raya is currently in a rescue in Italy, but is waiting to be taken in by SSR. Sometimes, SSR take in dogs from Italy to assist a rescue over there as we feel that the dogs will have a better chance of finding a loving forever home.

This is Raya. She is a lovely young girl and has a sweet nature.

Unfortunately, Raya has been subject to an unbelievable amount of cruelty almost every Day of her life, she was found almost starved to death and has had her ears cut off. Despite this, it has not affected her loving and affectionate character.

Raya has not show any aggression towards other dogs, she is around 14 months old and is currently being looked after by a vet, but she is steadily getting healthier and happier.

Raya would love to end her hard journey with finding a forever home of her own, please complete an application form from our website if you are interested in adopting her.


As Raya is in Italy and we know little about her, we are looking for a pet free foster home for her to move into when she arrives.
