A rescue team in Crete received a call about a small pup living in a dirt lot. Some neighbors made a makeshift dog home for him but it was not appropriate for any dog, especially this little boy. A puppy that wasn’t also six weeks old.
When rescuers lastly met the little guy, they later called Georgie, they were in awe. He was tinier than expected. He came by to say ‘hello’ and when the rescuer picked him up, it was discovered that he was missing an entire paw. Living in the dirt lot had not been just risky, but could have caused a bad infection. Fortunately they saved Georgie when they did. Why no one took him inside their home is a wonder to us all.
Georgie was immediately taken to the shelter where he met friendly and gentle cats and canines. He finally got a good meal and a good night’s sleep. He really did not have to fall asleep to the sounds of loud traffic. Or worry about receiving his next meal or dish of water.
Quickly, a man met Georgie and fell head over paws for him. He adopted him and gave him a beautiful home with all the love Georgie can ever want.
Georgie even received a prosthetic paw! He’s complete grown now and very pleased. He will never ever before have to stress over staying in a dirt lot once again!
Please, if you see an animal in distress, don’t leave him alone outside. If you can not take him in on your own, call around until you locate someone that can take care of him until help arrives.
