Bianca, a street dog who lived on the streets of Greece for several years before she became limp due to a disease called Degenerative Myelopathy a few months ago. She was about to be saved and rehomed in record time until SPAZ, a dog rescue group, heard about her.
The Orphan Pet’s Valia Orfanidou writes:
“I’ve only known her for two weeks, but her rescue-rehoming tale is the fastest and most incredible I’ve ever heard. Her limp began months ago as a result of degenerative myelopathy, and as the months passed, she became increasingly unable to stand on her feet and began dragging the back of her body. For years, some of the people who work nearby have been looking after her.
“She had a wooden board house, she was being fed (probably overfed, which is one of the main issues when strays are cared for by a lot of people), and some people had paid for her x-rays and some for a new wheelchair. But the street was no longer a safe haven for Bianca.
“It wasn’t that easy. A dog like her cannot live in a shelter, a clinic, or somewhere else other than a home – and finding a home for a paralyzed, 7-year-old, 30-pound dog was no simple task. In reality, it seemed to be unlikely, but Bianca was extremely fortunate.” In the video below, Bianca tells her heartfelt story.
It’s heartwarming to know that Bianca will spend the remaining months of her life as happy and safe as possible!
