No words can describe the suffering of an animal discarded into a kill shelter, having left only moments to live.
Severely emaciated and with her weakened body all covered in fleas and ticks Theia was waiting for her end in one of Romania’s public pounds. She weighted only 13 kg (and now she weights 26) and was so fragile that we were afraid even to touch her.
After 2 months of intensive medical care she blossomed into a wonderful dog, extremely loving and affectionate, friendly and kind, obedient, well-balanced and grateful, a pure joy to everyone.
She has been with us every day since we rescued her, we watched her as she recovered day by day, as she learnt to live again, as she rediscovered the joy of running, of playing with other dogs, as she snuggled happy in her bed. It’s been now 8 months since we saved Theia, she has become a part of our family and we cannot imagine life without her. We rescued her and she rescued us.
There are millions of dogs like Theia waiting for a chance in shelters from all over the world. Sadly, many of them never get to know the love of a forever family.
Please consider adopting a shelter dog: he will give you in exchange his loyalty, unconditional love and infinite gratefulness for being his savior.
