I grew up with dogs and always loved animals. When I met Noëlle and Tobi, I fast became part of Citydogs4Streetdogs-Team and every year I spend a lot of time helping where I can. If helping at the charity event Animal Christmas, setting up Dog Rose or collect donations for humans and animals in Romania. You can always count on my support.

I love having dogs in my life. Helping them and making them happy is essential to me.
I fell in love with the vision of the Dog Rose instantly when Anja introduced me to it. I am proud to be a part of an action-driven organization and its positive impact on the lives of so many dogs and people as well. As a dog lover and creative, I will do my best to communicate the philosophy of the Dog Rose to as many people as I can.
Being inspired by the Dog Rose vision of educating humans, especially children on how to help animals and eventually stop the cruelty towards them I invite you to join the Dog Rose workshops.
Everything you do or not do makes a difference.

I was allowed to pick up my first dog from the shelter at the age of 21 and have had dogs ever since. I have been giving dog bite prevention courses at schools and kindergartens for 12 years (https://www.hundebisspraevention.ch/). Also better known as "Prevent a bite". I was really happy when I passed the strict exam with Mogli two years ago, although many voices were very skeptical whether a Romanian stray dog was suitable for this work. But he does it great!
