Special needs

We have some handicapped dogs for adoption at the shelter and also dogs that will need a experienced owner.

If the dog has leishmaniosis, you can find more infos on our special leishmaniosis page. Please, consider these dogs! Thank you.


The xoxDOGS are all dogs that are old and have a limited time of life left. We would so much love to show them how beautiful life can be and to give them a chance to experience life at it’s best,– a warm bed, loving hands, walks in a park, peace and quiet.

It is difficult to find homes to dogs with not that much time left. Therefore we would like to offer lifelong foster care. This means that you don’t pay any adoptionfee but you pay for their food.

To foster a xoxDog is about giving a dog a meaningful and peaceful life, about living here and now, about giving and receiving the greatest gift of all – love!

For more details about foster one of our xoxDogs and one of the special needs dogs please contact us.


Black dog syndrome or big black dog syndrome is a phenomenon in which black dogs are passed over for adoption in favor of lighter-colored animals.  (see also Wikipedia: Black Dog Syndrome).

So, please give our black dogs a chance!
