Stray Dog Victim Of Children’s Cruelty – Romeo’s Story

Romeo was one of the millions of strays in Greece that was unlucky enough to stumble upon some of the worst of us humans. He was spotted by a rescuer in the town of Nafplion, while he was being dragged from a rope around his neck by three Roma Gypsy kids.


The embedded wire in his neck had already made him lose is voice, and the injuries were so bad, that Romeo risked dying from the damage that was done to his esophagus and trachea. He went through a 6 hour operation and a long recovery, and today he is a happy, healthy boy. He is in the care of one of the best rescuers I know, and is gaining back his trust in people.

When you call him, you can see that he wants to come to you, but is too afraid to approach on his own. The amazing thing is that his best friend is Giorgos, a 17 year old Roma boy, that helps Linda with her rescue dogs.


So, this is Romeo’s story. He reminds us a lot of Oliver – apart from the size and color, the look in his eyes and his discreet manners bring back memories of one of our most beloved rescues. Romeo is about 18 months old and ready for his forever home. If you wish to adopt him, please contact Linda at: [email protected]
