Rescue of a sad dog

This is the story of Dora. Not much is known about her history, a part from the fact that she was a stray homeless dog captured and taken to the city pound. The look in her eyes betrayed her sadness.

When she was rescued by Howl of a dog, a non profit animal rescue organization located in Romania, she was traumatized, underweight and had some skin problems that required medical attention.

She was deprived of human affection and proper medical care and her journey to emotional recovery was a slow but eventually a happy ending one.

In het first week at the shelter, her tail was tucked between her legs almost all the time and she walked with her head lowered. Starting with the second week, she began to feel more comfortable and even wagged her tail, timidly, for the first time. Week after week her behavior started to improve.

Being offered proper care and much love, Dora has now become a normal dog, enjoying every cuddle and attention she receives.

She’s estimated to be around 3 years old, medium sized, weighing now 19 kg (42 pounds). She has been spayed, fully vaccinated, microchipped and she’s ready to go to her own loving home.

Dora is in in Romania, but she can be adopted abroad (more info here). If you’d like to make Dora a part of your family and offer her all the love and the care she deserves you can contact the rescue center here.
