Chained For Life – Just Another Barrel Dog Looking For A Home

Chained for life- this is how many (too many) dogs spend their entire lives in Greece. Can you imagine being chained for 10-15 years? Never exercising, never running free, never being petted, never knowing how grass feels underneath your paws?

This is just another barrel dog, living somewhere in rural Greece. If you are wondering what a barrel dog is, well, it exactly what it sounds: a dog chained next to a barrel (or a self-made dog house) in the middle of nowhere.

this is how many dogs spend their entire lives in Greece

The Greek Law (4039/2012) clearly forbids this kind of treatment, yet many dog owners continue this horrible practice and using barrel dogs as ‘living scarecrows’ (meant to scare away the wandering herds of sheep, goats or wild animals off plantations, farms, properties.

This young dog was “discovered” by the local charity of Karditsa yesterday. He lives chained, in this cage. His bed is a dirty, rusty barrel. He has never been walked, never smelled the grass, never knew what company is. He spends the entire day alone, in the middle of nowhere.

He is a friendly, sweet boy, desperate for…everything, everything he hasn’t experienced before. He will be removed from there, but a foster home or – preferably- a permanent home is needed. Greek charities, especially the ones in rural Greece, take on more dogs than they can actually handle, and sometimes, there is literally no room for just one more.
