Two puppies who were saved from a rubbish tip after being found ‘half dead’ are looking to start a new life in the UK- and they have delightful foodie names.

16-week-old Jaffa and Oreo were found in critical condition along with their mother and siblings, hiding in a dump in Romania before Flori's Friend Rescue stepped in to rescue them.

Their mum has since happily been rehomed but the pups are currently housed at the EU shelter and will be travelling to the UK on September 23 for a chance at rehabilitation, and a life with a loving family.

A spokesperson for the organisation told TeamDogs the inspiration for their unusual names was directly linked to their appearance.

“Because Jaffa is so orange he looks like a Jaffa cake, and Oreo is black and white and super sweet in his personality so we went for Oreo.”

Flori’s Friend Rescue is a Canterbury-based charity that looks to rehome stray and abused dogs across Europe and the UK.

On their website they claim to operate a strictly no-kill policy, instead choosing to “work with both disabled dogs and those with behavioural problems, to allow them to enjoy their life just like any other dog.

“This often means taking the ones that other charities will not touch and working with them, no matter how long it takes, to give them a second chance to lead a happy and fulfilled life.”

Jaffa is described as a ‘bundle of love’ who should reach medium size when he is fully grown.

The rescue said: “Jaffa is an active puppy that just wants to play, be fussed and do general puppy stuff.

“He is full of beans and spirit and would make someone a very lucky adopter.”

Oreo is the smaller of the two, and is estimated only to reach about 10kg when he reaches adulthood. 

He is a ‘healthy boy who enjoys the company of other dogs’

Both puppies will require basic training, as well as time and patience to adjust to life as a companion animal as they have never been in a home before.

Because of their young age, both can also be rehomed to families with children over the age of six, and other animals.

Since the rescue first posted about the two puppies, their Facebook page has been flooded with comments from well-wishers.

Sharon Forgan said: “Oh gorgeous boys, I hope you find a truly loving forever home.”

Jo Maskell added: “Looks like Jaffa likes the camera! God bless and all a wonderful loving happy home.”
