❄ What makes Tourmaline special: Tourmaline has a tic in one of her hind legs, a result of her battle against Distemper in 2023

Meet Tourmaline, the lovable rescue dog ready to steal your heart and become the perfect addition to your family.

Tourmaline and her friend Ima came into our care in the Spring of 2023, after having had a safe home their whole lives. They lived in the garden of their owner's home, and weren't allowed inside, and they weren't spayed, so they continuously ended up with litters of puppies, but at least they were well fed and safe from the dangers of the streets. Although they weren't considered a full family member, they were still a lot luckier than most dogs in Turkey. However, their calm life came to an abrupt end when their owner moved to a different city and decided it was too much of a hassle to take the dogs with them. Without a single thought for how traumatising this would be for them, he called the government shelter and asked for them to be picked up and taken away. An animal lover heard about the situation and asked us for help. 

Unfortunately Tourmaline turned out to have Distemper, and as well being abandoned, she also suddenly had to fight for her life. After a long and hard battle, she pulled through, but she was left with tics in one of her hind legs.

Tourmaline is an absolute sweetheart. This sweet, easy-going girl is a calm and gentle dog who often fades into the background in the busy shelter, but who has so much love to give! Tourmaline is a loyal dog who walks perfectly on the lead and never strays far. Her quiet and unassuming nature makes her an ideal companion for those seeking a devoted furry friend.

Tourmaline gets along well with other dogs, but would prefer a calm home without the chaos of lots of other energetic dogs around her. She is a bit scared of cats, and tries to ignore them. 

Tourmaline loves people and is happiest when she gets to sit on your lap getting cuddles!


By opening your home to Tourmaline, you're not only gaining a loyal and affectionate companion, but also giving a deserving dog a second chance at a happy life. With her charming personality and easy-going demeanor, Tourmaline is ready to bring joy, laughter, and unconditional love into your home. Don't miss the opportunity to make Tourmaline a cherished member of your family!

Tourmaline is currently in Turkey and is available for adoption in the UK and the EU.
