When Daisy, the hunting dog, was no longer of use to her proprietor, she was abandoned and left to fend for herself. She hardly made it through on scraps of food in a dangerous part of town.
Daisy was heartlessly tied to a tree by a resident who saw her as a “nuisance” in the area. She was left there for more than 24 hours prior to somebody calling “DAR Animal Rescue” for assistance. By the time rescuer Ermioni arrived, Daisy was incoherent from fear, hunger, and loneliness.
When Ermioni approached Daisy, she was so petrified that she believed she was about to be hurt, even though not a single other person had actually come forward to assist her.
As Ermioni moved closer to the dog, Daisy’s eyes grew larger in worry. When Erminoni finally caught hold of Daisy, she realized that the animal was terrified. She could feel its heart pounding quickly and did her best to hug and comfort it.
Ermioni quickly freed Daisy from the ropes and picked her up. She was horrified by just how the residents around her just stared, not appearing to care about Daisy at all. They provided Ermioni with unusual appearances, but nobody bothered to ask if Daisy was okay.
Sadly, Daisy’s health was not in good condition when she went to the veterinarian. She had low blood pressure, high white cells, and diarrhea because of the current trauma. However, thanks to treatment, Daisy became healthy once again rapidly and had the ability to begin fresh in the shelter within a couple of days.
Though Daisy was better physically, the emotional damage she endured still manifested itself around others. She was shy and scared of both humans and animals alike. When she saw various other dogs playing, it only served to remind her of just how lost she felt. It would certainly be a very long time before I mentally healed completely.
The workers were very patient with Daisy, letting her heal gradually and at her own speed. As time passed, she became less fearful and even began wagging her tail faintly. Eventually, she recognized that she was risk-free, enjoyed herself, and embraced her second chance at life enthusiastically!
She now resides in her forever home, relaxed and content in a way only a German canine could recognize. She loves spending time with her family and doggie siblings, flaunting how happy she is through her beautiful smiles. If the people of the neighborhood where she was tied up years ago could see how serenely pleased she is currently, perhaps they would become more empathetic to stray animals in the future.
