Daisy, an obedient hunting dog, was left to fend for herself after her owner deemed her unusable. The poor pup struggled to survive on meager scraps of food in a rough neighborhood.
Daisy had been callously bound to a tree by a local resident who considered her a “bother” in the region. Daisy had been left there for over 24 hours before someone called “DAR Animal Rescue” for assistance. When rescuer Ermioni arrived, Daisy was disoriented from fright, hunger, and isolation.
Daisy was so fearful when Ermioni approached her that she felt she was about to be harmed even though no one else had come to help her. As Ermioni neared the dog, Daisy’s eyes widened with anxiety. When Erminoni eventually got hold of Daisy, she realized the animal was panicking. She could feel its heart pounding fast and did everything she could to embrace and comfort it.
Ermioni rapidly released Daisy from the ropes and took her in her arms. She was appalled at how the locals around her just stared, not showing any concern for Daisy. They gave Ermioni strange looks, but no one bothered to inquire about Daisy’s well-being.
Regrettably, Daisy’s physical condition was not in good shape when she visited the veterinarian. Her blood pressure was low, white cells were high, and she had diarrhea due to the current trauma. Fortunately, with the proper treatment, Daisy recovered quickly and was able to start fresh at the shelter within a few days.
Although Daisy was physically better, the emotional scars she endured still haunted her around other beings. She was timid and frightened of both humans and animals. When she saw other dogs playing, it only reminded her of how lost she felt. It would take a long time for Daisy to fully recover mentally.
The shelter staff was very understanding of Daisy’s situation, allowing her to heal gradually and at her own pace. With time, she became less afraid and even started wagging her tail faintly. Eventually, she realized that she was safe, enjoyed herself, and enthusiastically embraced her second chance at life!
She has finally found her permanent abode and is now at ease. As a German dog, she knows how to appreciate contentment in the best way possible. She enjoys bonding with her family and furry companions, and her gorgeous grins are a testament to how happy she is. If only those who witnessed her being tied up in the neighborhood could see her peaceful state now, they might develop more compassion towards stray animals in the coming days.
