I am trying to write but tears filled my eyes .. this poor dog (4.8 kg!!!!) lived at the streets in a village of Karditsa and had a completely broken jaw… a jaw that was hanging !!!! Many eyes have seen her, some hands has fed her
(She couldn’t eat she tried to lie down and lick with her tongue at the side …) and no one helped this dog!!!! .. only one person, we thank him so so much, informed us immediately when he saw her. Can’t fit in my mind the pain that passed and passes this tiny dog .. 15 days without normal food and without even to be able to close her mouth … In the photographs you can see clearly the roots of the back tooth , are literally uprooted! The entire denture is in the air, and uprooted without anesthesia .. Can you even imagine that????? Kick .. we feel sure that it was made by kicking .. From human? horse? Bear? God knows .. The injury is enormous, will do surgery and May God help so everything will well .. May God give to Mara and us courage … We are all literally crashed …
Please share and help us with the veterinary costs, it will be quite large …”
Mara will need additional surgeries, but you can help her through donations, or even adopt her.
