Babushka is a tiny old female doggie abandoned recently in the streets of Ploiesti. I really hoped she was only lost and not disposed of like garbage, but no one came looking for her. She stays outside on scorching weather on the street where they left her. She walks to every person passing by and wags her tail. But at the end of the day, she is still there... No one came looking for her, no one took her home. The small Romanian version of Hachiko, only that we suspect she was abandoned because she got old, not because anything tragic happened to her owner. She never leaves the street, as if she had faith her owner would return for her there.

Babushka, a golden oldie abandoned by her lifelong owner

Babushka is still a happy energetic girl, despite her old age

Babushka. A tiny doggie that certainly would have deserved much, much better...


  1. Is she still on the street or in a foster home?

  2. Now she is currently in foster care, and we also had her spayed.
