When DAR Animal Rescue received a call from a street animal care group about a stray dog with an embedded wire around his front leg, they knew it would be a challenging case. The situation required immediate medical attention for the poor pup.
According to Ermioni from DAR Animal Rescue, capturing “Samson” was a challenging task due to his suffering, pain, and fear. However, with the help of a determined group of rescuers, they were able to succeed. The team required 10 individuals to hoist Samson out of a dry canal where he had fallen. Upon reaching the veterinarian clinic, it became apparent that Samson’s injury was severe.
In Greece, using a trap to catch wild pigs is against the law. Unfortunately, Samson got caught in one of these traps and had a wire stuck in his leg that was difficult to remove. The wire was made of steel and wrapped tightly around his leg. As a result, Samson had to undergo the amputation of his leg. However, with proper care and treatment, he was able to recover fully. Finally, he was returned to his community where he was able to reunite with his companions.
“At present, the adorable stray who stole our hearts has been neutered, is in good health and is radiating happiness. We make sure to shower him with love and care at all times, even though he still roams free. Additionally, there are kind-hearted individuals who are stepping up to take care of other stray animals in the vicinity.”
There are a lot of stray dogs in Greece that can’t be taken to shelters or adopted. However, one lucky pup named Samson is being looked after and fed by some compassionate folks in his neighborhood as well as the team at DAR Animal Rescue. He’ll receive plenty of love and care thanks to their efforts.
It’s heartening to witness how a dog’s mood improves as he reunites with his fellow pack members upon returning home. The rescue team’s collective efforts in saving the animal’s life was truly remarkable and inspiring. A big shoutout to Ermoini and all the individuals involved in this rescue mission.
