Rescue of a Sweet Pit Bull found abandoned on the streets in terrible condition

Pit Bulls are some of the most misunderstood dogs out there. Unfortunately, they usually end up in the hands of the wrong people, and wrong people mistreat them, abuse them and eventually abandon them or get rid of them one way or the other.

Matilda is one such dog. Valia Orfanidou, a volunteer of SCARS (the city’s dog rescue) discovered the dog on one of the busiest streets in southern Athens.

Valia at first assumed that the injuries on her body were caused by dog fighting, but a closer check showed the true reason.

“She was bleeding from everywhere, and most marks on her skin seemed like dog bites, but we were wrong. Matilda’s entire skin is suffering, and entire pieces are falling off as you pet her,” writes Valia Orfanidou.

“She suffers from a horrible itch that must have been keeping her awake for entire nights. She has exfoliating dermatitis, that is caused by leishmaniasis. Sadly, this is very typical here in Greece.”

“All those Mediterranean diseases, like leishmaniasis, ehrlichia etc are transmitted by parasites, and they can be easily prevented with a simple spot on once a year.”

“Apparently, Matilda’s owners were too frugal to provide her with spot ons and too frugal to take her to the vet and have her treated for leishmaniasis after she got sick, so they came up with the typical solution of abandoning her on the streets.”

“Seriously…What is wrong with people? Leishmaniasis can be treated, and many dogs can make a full recovery. Our vet is very optimistic that Matilda will recover very well, and she has already started her treatment.”

Matilda is now living in a foster home with three other dogs. “And she finally enjoys proper love and affection” says Valia. When she is healthy enough, Matilda will be available for adoption through SCARS.

The fact that Matilda was found on a busy street highlights the importance of awareness and education about responsible pet ownership. Too often, people acquire pets without considering the responsibility that comes with it, and they may mistreat or abandon them when they become inconvenient.

It’s inspiring to hear about the efforts of rescuers like Valia Orfanidou, who are willing to go out of their way to help animals in need. Through their compassion and dedication, they give these animals a chance at a better life and show that there is hope for even the most mistreated and abandoned dogs.
