A 4-month-old puppy was found under a bridge, sick and hopelessly clinging to life. But thanks to a Good Samaritan, she’s now thriving and looking for her forever home.
When a passerby saw the small puppy under the bridge in Greece, they didn’t have the heart to leave her. She had visible skin issues and looked helpless and hopeless. So, they called DAR Animal Rescue to help.
When rescuers with DAR Animal Rescue arrived, they found the little dog under the bridge where they were told she’d be. They scooped her up and immediately took her to a veterinary clinic to be evaluated.
Sadly, the little pup, who was estimated to be 4-months-old, was suffering from several health issues including demodex, a bacterial infection, and malnutrition.

The rescue said the little dog, who they named Tia, had skin “hard as stone” on her face, and the rest of her body was “hairless, red, and hot.”
Needless to say, she had to remain at the vet’s office for a while for treatment and monitoring. They worked tirelessly to get Tia to a stable condition, and after a while, they succeeded.
Her rescuers were able to take her from the vet to the shelter, where she could continue treatment for her skin issues.
It took a couple of months, but she eventually looked and acted like a brand new dog!
The fur on her face grew in beautifully and her coat flourished. She seemed happy, joyful and full of life.
Now, the last thing she needs is a loving family to call her own.
