Dog abuse in Greece is probably hardwired into our genes – I don’t know how I can explain it any other way. Embedded wires in necks, tails and even bellies of dogs and cats is so often, that my usual reaction when seeing on of these posts is: “oh, there’s another one”
After Mara, the tiny dog that was wandering in a village of Karditsa with her jaw broken and literally handing for 15 days, the local charity “Diasozo” (Greek for rescue) rescued this poor little girl.
With embedded wire tied to her belly, and literally splitting her in two and scared to death, she was wandering in that condition for 10 days. The rescuers were looking for her for two days and they finally managed to catch her using tranquilizers, because she wouldn’t be approached.
She was not born a stray. She used to have an owner, who died and so she ended up on the streets. And this is what the streets will do to a stray dog. The wire around her was probably someone’s twisted idea of having fun – there isn’t much to do in rural Greece anyway, so I guess people are bored and come up with stuff like that to to amuse themselves…
She suffers from ehrlichia and dirofilaria, and the charity will do everything they can to turn her into a happy and healthy dog once again.
