Stray dogs in Greece have seen it all – and with them, so have we. Every time a new case of animal cruelty becomes public, we are all like “ok, this is a first”, and then another case appears, and another and another, until you are more like “oh, again?”.
After Spear, the cat found in a sewer drain, punctured with a fishing spear, the case of a dog that suffered similar cruelty in the island of Crete – bigger game, different dimensions for the weapon – left us all…ehmm… you know.
I am not sure what that thing they penetrated her skull with is. Poseidon’s trident? Some kind of fishing gear? Who cares. Apparently Jenny was annoying – simply because she was breathing on the street I guess – so they decided to get rid of her in that original way.
Apart from the attempted murder, Jenny also suffered the loss of her newborn puppies – probably the same way many stray and pet bitches do. You could tell from the milk in her breasts that she had just given birth, but no puppies were anywhere to be found, so they probably died of asphyxiation in a plastic bag somewhere deep inside a garbage bin.
Jenny recovered from her injuries, and she recovered from humanity too. Today she is under the care of SCARS and she is looking for her forever home. She deserves her happy ending, just as her abuser deserves (please finish the sentence for me).
If you don’t know anything about Jenny’s past, the first thing that comes to mind when you meet her is: “look at that happy, sweet girl!” You see, nothing about her reminds her past. She is social, loving , sweet and tender. She plays with the other dogs like a puppy, she comes to you for cuddles and she keeps wagging her tail and loving life.
Impressive huh? After all she has been through. You know I think that the stray dogs that suffer so much, don’t end up being tender and sweet because of what happened to them. It’s not that torture made them become softer. They were soft, kind and friendly to begin with.
They are the kind of strays that wag their tails and come to you for cuddles, and one day they simply end up at the hands of the wrong people. The fact that they are friendly makes them more accessible and easy to catch, torture and kill. They are being punished for loving humans, how sick is that?
Anyway, Jenny is now safe, and from now on, we are making sure that the people she approaches for love, will be offering only that: love. She is looking for her forever home, so if you wish to adopt her you can email the charity at: firstname.lastname@example.org or message their facebook page.
