There’s also a bigger problem here with street dogs that officials seem to try and hide. Poisoning of street dogs to cleanse the streets. I have talked to several people about this problem and it’s horrific. Dogs are being poisoned with battery acid by local authority’s to ‘clean’ the streets of dogs before the busy tourist season starts. Locals wake up to dogs dying slowly on the streets or in the case of the capital of Tirana, there are pits hidden from the public of dead street dogs. It’s horrific. The thought that Oreo could have been one of those dogs makes me sick. Who could do such an inhuman thing?

Yes, you read that right. Here’s the story of how I ‘accidentally’ adopted a street dog in one of my favourite places in the world.

As I read the description of Oreo my heart melted. Kornelia described him as a very sweet, energetic dog that only wanted some love. Kornelia and her husband Arbër run a dog coaching business in the capital of Tirana and they said Oreo used to wait for them at the same corner every day and walk with them. All he really wanted was the attention and love that all dogs deserve, but being a street dog in Albania, they are not always treated with love.

Unfortunately, a lot of Albanians are scared of dogs so when I walk him a lot of people give him a wide berth, scream and even cross the road to avoid him. A lot of them have been brought up to not trust dogs and to be honest, dogs are not treated well here.

Now Oreo and I live happily in Saranda together. He has been living with me since March so he’s totally comfortable with me and his new surroundings now. He is not a huge fan of the beach, just very confused about waves and why they are coming after him. He’s fond of children, very gentle with them and always waves his tail when he sees them.
