A family spent many years with a sweet dog named Athena, who was found on the outskirts of Saratov in Russia.
She loves them and is very happy, but suddenly they decide that they are moving and they will not take her with them . Athena was a fluffy old woman and the work was so terrible that her life was in great danger, the neighbors of this place found her in the middle of nowhere .
Athena was held by a chain that weighed several meters.
The poor animal was barely able to move and was unable to find water or food, she looked very sick and sad, she was so weak that she could n’t resist the chain to move her small head. me.
Not only was her physical health at risk: Athena was also very depressed and couldn’t understand why her family had left her there.
“You can see on his face that he felt too much pain,” lamented a user on the networks.
For many days, the sweet little dog did nothing but wait for someone to take pity on her. Eventually, her story reached the ears of Laurica Nagel, a local rescue worker. She immediately went to Athena and gained her trust by giving her some bitch.
Athena lived on the food that the carriers gave her.
The dog was exhausted and as soon as she arrived at the vet they confirmed how delicate her situation was, she was dehydrated and hungry . She also had a lot of fleas and ticks so she would need a couple of baths and attention, however what sweet Athena needed most was love.
Athena had lost sight in one of her eyes.
Laurica was afraid that it would not be easy to get a new home for the dog, many families refuse to give older puppies a chance, but she was not willing to give up, she took care of Athena with a lot of love and made her story known. A few weeks later they had already found a perfect family for her .
“I don’t understand how there are people capable of doing such terrible things. It’s a relief to know that this dog managed to get a happy ending ,” said one netizen.
Now, sweet Athena has a wonderful home and also has several dog brothers to play with and spend the whole day doing mischief. She received the second chance that she so deserved.
Don’t hesitate to adopt an older puppy. We may spend less time with them but they will give us so much love that we will remember them for the rest of our lives.
