Update 9.1.2024:
The Bear. Joni.
Joni was brought to us a few years back by the police department.
A farm was raided in Platanias by the police where they found carcasses of dead farm animals along with live animals, domesticated animals on chains in their waste and rot everywhere.
Joni was there with her daughter Maria, whom we also have.
Joni is a quiet animal, somewhat timid and cautious if she does not know you.
God only knows what her eyes have seen.
She is an impressive animal, 35+kilo but she is low maintenance. She does not ask for much. She is a senior and only requires food and a cushy bed.
She does not have an aggressive bone in her body although her looks and her size intimidate.
Consider this majestic creature.
She will definitely be a conversation piece for sure! No one can not meet her and not have a comment to say.
Adopt our Joni today.
Update 23.08.2023:
Joni, our real life teddy bear.
Joni was confiscated with her daughter, Maria, by police from a farm in Platanias where they found extremely bad conditions. There were dead corpses next to live animals. There were mounds of feces throughout the space and there was Joni, evidence showing she had been there for years, tied and severely neglected.
Joni has been with us far too many years already.
She is a very big girl, over 40kg. She is getting older and although she is quite comfortable with us (this is her lounging in her doghouse) a personal home would be best.
Her disposition is quiet, reserved and she is very low energy.
She loves her rubs.
Joni is a beautiful soul who had seen so much yet retains her kindness.
Consider her today!
Update 2.8.2022:


Joni is slowly feeling better.


Joni is big, fluffy teddy bear. She´s shy with strangers, but does little happy dances for people she loves what´s the cutes thing on earth to watch. She barks to strangers at the fence, but has never ever shown any kind of aggression to any person or any other dog.
She´s great with other dogs, males and females a like.
She´ll need short but regular exercise to loose some weight.
His story:
Joni and Maria are two animals which were confiscated from a hell hole of a farm where other animals were confiscated as well.
