Puppy Abandoned For Being “Different” Is Now The Happiest Boy

About a month ago, during one of the rainiest days Athens has ever seen, Stevie was found freezing in the middle of a park, in a suburb of Athens, Greece. He looks like a Pekingese – a very badly bred Pekingese to be exact.

Abandoned – Just Another Emaciated Pointer

Abandoned, emaciated and sick. Just another Greek  hunting dog, just another Greek tragedy. This could be the entire post actually – for someone familiar with the situation in Greece, there’s not much more that needs to be said.

Blind, skinny and abandoned on the streets (!)… He was found on May 2015 in southern suburb of Athens, Greece. Can you imagine being blind and having to figure out how to find food and shelter? How to survive on the streets, when all you see is darkness?

Fallen Angel – Brief Story Of A Troubled Dog

I can’t even begin to describe what Kallie means to me. Looking back at my “history” as a rescuer, Kallie was always there, my first foster dog really. I had already fostered my own dog, Apollo, before I decided to adopt him, and Izi, my puppy.

Puppy Abandoned For Being Born Different Is Now The Happiest Boy

Puppy mills, pet stores and backyard breeders are very good at one thing: providing ignorant people with sick dogs. The puppy you buy for a bargain price will probably have you spend a fortune to vet bills for many years to come – if you have enough decency that is.

Dying from the inside, this is what is happening to Sam right now. While he patiently waits, day after day, in the clinic’s infirmary, for that  inexplicable torture to be over, his own body is attacking him,  destroying  all that is left of the healthy tissues and bones.

15 Gorgeous Puppies Rescued From The Streets

15  meaning “I met these 15 and can post about them – there are hundreds like them abandoned every day” I’m not sure we understand what rescuing this kind of beauty  right from the street actually means. These 15 were not just found on the street. They were born, considered trash, and abandoned in garbage bins, on the side of the road or in the middle of nowhere, so that they’d starve and die.

Stray Dog Hit By Car Was Dragging His Shattered Legs For Weeks

Stray dogs are living in an ongoing game of Russian roulette. Every day they spin the revolver’s cylinder and pull the trigger. If they are lucky, they get a non-loaded chamber and they make it one more day. But since there is always a bullet in the cylinder, every day they spin it, is one day closer to getting the loaded chamber and being hit by a car, poisoned, abused or hit by illness.

Dog Recovered From Severe Injuries Can Now Finally Run

In October 4, 2016, in a suburb of Athens, Greece, Joy was hit by a car and left there, on the side of the road, to suffer in agony and pain, until the SPAZ rescuers got to her. It’s hard to tell if she was recently abandoned or just lost, but nobody has come forward to claim her so far, and I don’t think anyone ever will.
