Dimis weighs only 5-6 kilos. Instead of being spoilt in a home of his own, he was simply one of the unlucky ones and was born on the streets. He was hit by a car in a village of central Greece and was just left there, on the side of the road, to die a slow, painful death.
People here in Greece are so weird. It’s not always that they don’t care. Sometimes they look like they do. Sometimes you hear stories about how they came across a sick dog and how sad they were. And after the sadness they experienced (it’s all about them), comes a full stop, and the story ends there.

It’s as if they dοn’t realize that there are actually other options, apart from just feeling sorry for the dogs. I mean, putting it in the car and driving to a vet clinic is like suggesting them to take a trip to Mars or something. Anyway.
So Dimis strayed there, on the side of the road, desperate, alone, dehydrated and in pain for who knows how long. Until the local charity was called. The volunteers of the area try their best to help as many animals in need as possible, in a place where indifference thrives.
Paralysis is a volunteer’s worst fear. Rehoming a handicapped dog is not easy, nor is finding a proper foster home, for a dog that needs to be cleaned many times per day, to have its dippers changed and maybe it’s bladder emptied manually.
Dimis was broken in half. He weighs only 5,7 kilos and had an acetabular fracture and a fracture of the femoral head of a concave side. He was operated last week and his surgery went very well.
Although the rescuers feared he might be left paralyzed, Dimis will probably make a full recovery, and he will be able to walk again. For now, he is recovering in his foster home and, well, that face of his says more than I could ever say about him.
