Hunting dogs are often mistreated. We don’t understand why their owners view them in such a way since all they want to do is please their masters. Moira is a hunting dog that lived an unfair life. When she became ill and couldn’t hunt, her owner brought her to the vet to be euthanized. She wasn’t worth it to her owner to even try to get her treatment.
The veterinarian had seen this countless times. He picked up the phone and called a local hero. Takis is known for rescuing dogs in Greece that no one wants. He also picks up abandoned dogs and dogs that had been abused. He got in his car and drove over to see Moira.
As soon as they met, and locked eyes for just a moment, Takis knew that this dog was meant to be with him. Moira was sick and scared. It broke the rescuer’s heart! Takis told the vet that he would take her back to his shelter and work to get her better. She was completely shut down and refused to even come out from a corner. But Takis had seen this before and was ready to help her.
Moira needed her health to be addressed first but Takis also needed to make her feel safe. He couldn’t imagine what she had been through to make her shut down like this. She was petrified of people. Takis started slowly. First by trying to pet her, slowly and steadily. Once she accepted him a bit, he put her on a leash to show her the grounds. She just darted beneath a car and refused to come out.
