Rescuers with DAR Animal Rescue in Greece received photos of a dog wondering the streets and they knew they needed to help.
The dog, who they named Sapphire, had been reportedly living on the streets for just a few days before the photos were sent in, but it was clear he’d been neglected for much longer than that.
Based on the fact that Sapphire had been wearing a collar when he was found, along with rope tied to his neck, the rescuers believe he’d been tied up and abandoned when he got sick.
The poor pup was starving and desperately searching for food when help arrived.
Ermioni with DAR Animal Rescue immediately gained Sapphire’s trust and gently picked him up and drove him straight to the veterinarian’s office.
Once at the vet’s office, Sapphire finally got some much-needed food and medical care. They found that he was suffering from three different Mediterranean diseases! Treatment would take months, but he should make a full recovery.
The 2-year-old dog may have had a rough past, but his future is only getting better from here.
Over time, Ermioni and her team hope to help Sapphire put on some weight, overcome his diseases, and soak up all the love he deserves!
