Stray Dog With Severe Eye Injury Is Now Looking For A Family To Love Him

Stray dogs can range from typical mix breed average looking ones to tiny, cute fluffy babies, that make you wonder “how is it possible that no one took him from the streets earlier?”. The streets of rural Greece are  filled with small treasures like Danny, who was rescued last month.

Danny – as the charity named him – was found on the streets of Karditsa, a town in central Greece. He had suffered a severe eye injury, and was hiding in a corner, bleeding. Maybe it was an accident, maybe it was done deliberately (more possible than you can imagine). Danny was spotted by a volunteer of the local charity and was taken to the vet immediately.

He had to undergo surgery, as his eye was completely destroyed. He is a healthy dog, which means that he did have a family somewhere out there – stray dogs usually come with a disease they have contracted from fleas, ticks etc. However, no one has come forward to claim him, so Danny is available for adoption.

He weighs about 10 kilos, and is a very calm and polite dog, who gets along with people and other dogs. He walks perfect on a lead and he appears to be young.

Rescuing little dogs like Danny from the streets is so weird. There are so many out there, young, tiny, fluffy, cute babies, abandoned on the streets to survive on their own. And to think that right now, people around the world are buying a “Danny” from their local pet store makes you feel that the world we live in is ridiculously irrational.
