Eve the street dog


Mario came to the land after being the victim of violent attack where he was left badly beaten and with a broken leg. Kind locals tried their best to care for him and called Happy Doggo for help. Mario went to the big hospital on the mainland to have his leg fixed. He's now walking well again but will likely always have a bit of a limp.

Mario is a very cheery, lively and inquisitive dog. He loves to be involved in whatever is going on and doesn’t want to miss any of the action.

Mario gets on well with all the dogs at the land and with his friendly and outgoing nature, we think he'd fit in in any environment. He's now keen to find his own humans as soon as possible and a home in Thailand would be ideal!

Billy came to the land after we received an emergency rescue call about him. He had been beaten and slashed on the head with a knife. Billy had swelling on his brain, PTSD, and a loss of vision and went to an animal hospital on the mainland twice to receive specialist treatment.

Billy has now regained his sight, his brain swelling is gone, and he has recovered from PTSD. He will have another check-up at the animal hospital before he travels. He's a lovely boy who gets on well with all the other dogs and humans and loves gentle walks and cuddles.

Billy is looking for his own quiet home where he will receive lots of love. A home with a fenced garden would be ideal.

Billy has some ongoing medication which he needs to be given daily until October and will require annual eye check-ups.

Eve the street dog


Sandy is a young puppy who didn't have an easy start in life. He was abandoned on a beach all alone, and wouldn't have survived much longer without his mother.

After calls from worried locals who had spotted him, followed by a challenging rescue, Sandy is now safe and settling into life at the land. He is a sweet and inquisitive puppy who is gaining confidence, making friends and learning to play.

Sandy will be 7 months old when he is able to travel so he is looking for a home that can offer a suitable lifestyle for a young dog. He has long legs and large paws so we think he might end up being a big boy!

Sex: Male
Approximate Age: 3 months

Toffee the street dog


Toffee (formerly Special) came to the land after contracting two separate cases of blood parasites. She was very ill, dangerously thin, and in danger of not surviving on the streets.

Since recovering, Toffee has blossomed into an extremely active, intelligent, and playful dog.

Toffee has now found her forever home in Edinburgh, Scotand and is looking forward to a beautiful life full of hills and beaches.

Sex: Female
Approximate Age: 18 Months

Eve the street dog


Eve came to the land with a huge burn wound on her left hip and hind leg, after someone threw boiling oil and water over her. She was also suffering from blood parasites. She has since made a great recovery.

Eve has found a beautiful home in the UK with a couple who have plenty of time to help her settle into her surroundings and take her on adventures.

Sorry, no dogs available at the moment.

Hank - Thailand Only

Hank is a loveable, friendly, and calm middle-aged guy. He was previously owned, but his family decided to surrender him because of the costs associated with keeping him.

Hank gets along well with all humans, including kids, but he could accidentally knock them over. He's friendly with other dogs, but would enjoy a home where he's the only dog. He walks well (but slowly) on leash, loves to run, and is pretty good with all basic training. Because of his size, he would be best suited to an experienced owner.
Sex: Male
Approximate Age: 5-6 years
Weight: 29kg

Nicole Kidman

Nicole Kidman was dumped at a busy pier towards the end of Covid. She tried to integrate herself into a few different packs but she was never successful and regularly got attacked by the other dogs. She eventually gave up and has spent the last year living by herself and trying to survive.

She is a very gentle and submissive dog, who has always loved human attention. She greets everyone she meets with a wagging tail and would love nothing more than to spend her days with a quiet family who will teach her that the world isn't as scary as she thinks.

Sex: Female
Approximate Age: 2-3 years
Weight: 11kg

Kate Moss

Kate Moss is still just a puppy, but she has been through so much already. Found dumped with her sister Sophie at an abandoned construction site, we rescued her in very difficult circumstances. Unfortunately, only weeks later she contracted Parvo and very nearly didn't make it.

Kate Moss is very nervous and distrustful of humans, but she is slowly learning that ear scratches are nice, especially if they come with food. She is more reserved than her sister Sophie, and will likely always be a timid dog. Building up her confidence and trust will take time, so a very gentle and patient home is key.

Sex: Female
Approximate Age: 5 Months


Tommy was hit by a car at a young age, and suffered a broken hip and femur. After an operation and a few months of recovery, he has regained almost full mobility, although he'll always have slightly limited physical abilities so he may not be the best long-distance running partner.

Tommy is a very energetic and playful dog and he's full of puppy energy. He genuinely wants to be friends with everyone he meets and is up for anything. He would do well in almost any environment, provided he gets the proper training and socialization early on.

Sex: Male
Approximate Age: 9 Months
Weight: 13.4kg


Sophie is still just a puppy, but she has been through so much already. Found dumped with her sister at an abandoned construction site, we rescued her in very difficult circumstances. Unfortunately, only weeks later she contracted Parvo and very nearly didn't make it.

Sophie is still very nervous, but she is showing signs of curiosity and getting braver every day! She's very interested in other dogs, and will likely be a great companion to another dog. With her inquisitive nature, we think she will blossom into quite an outgoing and social dog one day! 

Sex: Female
Approximate Age: 5 Months

The Minogue Sisters

Dannii and her sister Kylie Minogue have spent the last 3 years living at a busy pier. They never fully integrated into any pack, and they have historically been wary of humans and other dogs.

Since coming to live at the shelter, they have become very attached and affectionate towards humans. They are exuberant and playful dogs who are very tightly bonded to one another. We would love to find a home for these two sisters together and think they would thrive in an active house, ideally with a large fenced yard to play in.

Sex: Female
Approximate Age: 2-3 years
Weight: 10kg, 12kg


Stitch was hit by two cars as a young puppy and he suffered broken hips, a shattered hip socket, and a broken femur. After an extensive operation and months of targeted rehabilitation, he is now able to walk again.

Stitch is a very energetic, affectionate, and loving dog. He gets along well with most other dogs, but is showing some signs of resource guarding and can get jealous when he doesn't get all the attention. As a typical "teenager" he would be best suited to a home with an experienced dog owner who can teach him proper boundaries and socialization.

Sex: Male
Approximate Age: 1 year
Weight: 13kg

Help a dog get to their forever home

All of our dogs traveling overseas need a dedicated flight volunteer to escort them home. If you're flying from Thailand to Europe or the United States, you could help a deserving dog get home.

Meet some of our Happy Doggos

Here are just a few of the dogs that we've helped, whose lives and stories have captivated people all over the world. It's these dogs that make us do the work we do.


If one dog could change the world, it's Tina. Rescued after a lifetime of mistreatment, Tina was the sweetest and most loving dog you could ever meet.

Her life with us was too short, but her memory and legacy will live on in Tina's Hospital.


The first ever Happy Doggo to be adopted, Hope came to us after being slashed by a machete and shot with a nail gun.

She had completely shut down. But with a lot of love and patience, Hope is now living an incredible life in the UK.


Whacker (or King Whacker) was found with a gaping wound to his head. Someone had hit him with a pick-axe, and they were a few milimetres away from killing him.

He's now enjoying life in Glasgow with his little brother Cooper.

Some of our most commonly asked questions about adopting a dog from Thailand.

How much does it cost to adopt a dog from Thailand?

There are a lot of factors that go into calculating the final adoption price, but for the EU, UK, and US the cost is typically from USD $1,800 - $3,000. If you are selected to adopt one of our dogs, we will take a $500 deposit up front to cover the cost of food and required vaccinations.

How long does the adoption process take?

From the time we receive an adoption deposit, you can expect it to take 12 weeks until the dog is ready to travel. This is because there are mandatory minimum waiting times between a dog's vaccinations and required antibody testing.

What kind of training do your dogs have?

This really depends on the dog and their unique background, but we do not do any behavioural or lifestyle training. You can expect most of our dogs to be able to walk comfortably on leash, but you will likely need to work on house/potty training and basic obedience.

How do you choose who gets to adopt?

We do our best to match every dog to the best household for their specific requirements. We thoroughly review every application and interview all prospective new parents, and at the end of the day we might match potential adopters with a different dog than they originally applied for.
