Daisy the hunting dog was abandoned and left to fend for herself when her owner decided she was no longer useful. She eked out a meager existence in a dangerous area of the city on leftover food.
Daisy was heartlessly tied to a tree by a local who thought she was a “nuisance” in the neighborhood. Before someone called “DAR Animal Rescue” for assistance, she had been abandoned there for more than 24 hours. Daisy was incoherent from fear, hunger, and loneliness when rescuer Ermioni showed up.
Daisy was so terrified that she believed she was about to be hurt when Ermioni approached her, despite the fact that no one else had stepped forward to assist her.
Daisy’s eyes widened in terror as Ermioni drew nearer to the dog. Erminoni finally managed to get a hold of Daisy, and she was clearly terrified. She tried her best to give it a hug and comfort it because she could feel its heart racing.
Daisy was quickly untied from the ropes and picked up by Ermioni. She was appalled by the neighbors’ blank stares and their apparent lack of concern for Daisy. Nobody bothered to inquire as to Daisy’s well-being, but they all gave Ermioni strange looks.
Daisy visited the vet, but her health was not in the best of shape. Because of the recent trauma, she had low blood pressure, high white blood cells, and diarrhea. Daisy was able to restart her life in the shelter within a few days after receiving treatment, which allowed her to quickly regain her health.
Daisy’s physical health had improved, but the emotional harm she had suffered was still visible to others. She was reticent and reserved around both people and animals. She only served to be reminded of how lost she felt when she observed other dogs playing. Emotionally, it would take a long time to fully recover.
Daisy was treated with extreme patience by the staff, who allowed her to recover gradually and at her own rate. She began to lose her fear as time went on and even began to wag her tail a little. She eventually came to terms with the fact that she was safe and loved, and she eagerly embraced her second chance at life!
She is now in her forever home, relaxed and content as only a German dog can be. She enjoys spending time with her family and doggie siblings, and her beautiful smiles show how happy she is. If the people in the neighborhood where she was imprisoned years ago could see how content she is now, perhaps they would be more sympathetic to stray animals in the future.
