The 1st Multi-Generations-House for Dogs

It is a home for the old, disabled, in need of care and partly lonely elderly dogs; where they can spend their last stage of life in a dignified environment and in a family of dogs.

From young to old, from healthy puppies up to the physically or mentally disabled four-legged friends, all are welcome to us.

In principle a placement of one of our housemates (because we live together under one roof – people & dogs) is of course always possible.

If you consider the adoption of a dog from abroad and research about it, you will inevitably repeatedly encounter terms such as ‘Mediterranean diseases’, ‘Leishmaniasis’ or ‘Ehrlichiosis’.

Protection Fee

A “protection fee” is not a purchase price” – it fulfills rather different purposes: Coverage of accrued costs and also creates a “barrier” not to get a dog thoughtlessly.
