Living dead, desperate and alone, Pablo is an Epaniel Bretton who was found in terrible condition and was taken in by Save a Greek Stray. His comeback surprised everyone and it is just one more proof of the strength and the will to live that every rescue dog has.
When the rescuers first spotted him, they actually thought he was dead, but he was not.
Pablo, as the charity named him was found in terrible condition in the beach of a small town, about 150 kilometers north of Athens, Greece. Exhausted, sick and starving, he was laying under a boat and could barely breathe. A living dead, who had found a quiet spot where to lie down and just die. When the rescuers first spotted him, they actually thought he was dead, but he was not.
His blood test results were disappointing
He was taken to the Save a Greek Stray shelter, was examined, blood tested and given the proper care. His blood test results were disappointing. Pablo had lost his strength, leishmaniasis (a disease cause by infected sandflies) had exhausted him, and he had lost his appetite. But the rescuers did not give up on him. Pablo started eating, he gained weight and well, here he is today.
The Reason For His Condition
Oh well, first of all he a hound. Hunting dogs in Greece suffer greatly. They are never given proper care by their owners and are abandoned per hundreds every year. Rescuing a healthy hunting dog in Greece is so rare, that when it happens we are all pretty amazed. Why didn’t anyone help him earlier? Because this is the way things work here. Most people will walk by a dog or cat in need. If the animal is spotted in time by someone willing to do something, it gets a chance. Had Pablo not been spotted by the right people at the right time, he would have died under that boat the same day.
Today Pablo is a happy, healthy dog. Full of energy, playful and loving life, he lives in the Save a Greek Stray shelter and has nothing to do with the living dead the rescuers pulled from underneath that boat a few weeks earlier.

Pablo is looking for a forever home, and he deserves one. Like all SGS rescue dogs, he is neutered and will be given to a family that will treat him as a loving and loyal companion, not as a hunting tool.
