Aliki and Walter, a couple from Canada who were on their honeymoon in Greece, stumbled upon a heartbreaking sight that they never anticipated. They witnessed a stray dog being consumed alive by parasites, with only a few weeks left to live. The dog was living on the streets of a small town and was suffering from extreme malnourishment and emaciation.
As they were driving down the street, the dog approached their car window, seeking help. It was clear that the dog was traumatized and fearful, likely due to past mistreatment by strangers. Aliki and Walter knew that they had to do something to assist the helpless animal.
Upon being discovered by the couple, he visibly trembled and displayed signs of fear, possibly due to past negative experiences with unkind humans. Nonetheless, his little tail, which he tucked between his hind legs, managed to wag joyfully. It was evident that he was overjoyed to have finally encountered individuals who were kind enough to pay him some attention, despite his unfavorable circumstances.
After being influenced by the efforts of Greek Animal Rescue and Diasozo, the duo made a decision to lend a helping hand to this dejected and isolated dog. They acknowledged that they couldn’t just leave him behind and felt a strong inclination to provide aid.
After being found on the streets, he was provided shelter and given a can of food, which he finished in just a few bites. Following that, he was taken to a clinic where he received treatment for mange and underwent an examination for intestinal parasites.
According to the animal experts, the helpless creature stood no chance of survival if he had not been rescued from the streets. Fortunately, he was rescued in the nick of time and was gradually recuperating from his ordeal.
Nelson’s recovery process took around five months, where he received therapy and care. His hair grew back completely, and he looked like a new dog altogether. The changes that had taken place in him were incredible, not just physically but also emotionally. Nelson regained his trust in people, and he was overjoyed, constantly wagging his tail and grinning.
After his complete recovery, he headed to Canada to meet the wonderful people who saved his life. They were amazed by the positive change in him and welcomed him with open arms. It’s incredible to see how far Nelson, the gorgeous pup, has come thanks to these kind-hearted newlyweds!
