Dog Found Living in Sewer Drain Looking for a Miracle

Save a Greek Stray was notified about a very sick stray dog, living in a sewer drain somewhere in teh outskirts of Athens. He was feral and aggressive, and he had never been around people before in his life. However, Save a Greek Stray refused to give up on him.

They caught the dog with the help of a tranquilizer and got him back to town to treat him, but that is only the beginning of his journey.

The rescuers then named the dog Monty. He suffered from an old fracture in his hind leg, leishmaniasis, mange and his body was covered in ticks and fleas. He made a full recovery, but remained untamed for too long.

Since arriving at the shelter Monty keeps to his kennel. He’s suspicious, feral and lonely. Everyone who has tried to rehabilitate him has failed – volunteers, trainers, everyone. His distrust towards people runs deep and he seems to hate everyone.

When Alexandros, his trainer started working with him, they weren’t sure what to expect. But he did manage to finally get Monty out of that kennel.

Life in the shelter will not help Monty progress much more. He might get a bit better, but basically this is it for him. That is, unless someone opens their home and is up to the challenge of helping Monty become a companion dog.

His rescuers are hoping that the impossible is possible. After all they’ve seen miracles before. Hopefully miracles will also happen to Monty. Hopefully he will find a loving forever home soon.

The work of organizations like Save a Greek Stray is essential in providing these animals with the care and attention they need. Catching a feral animal with a tranquilizer is a difficult and risky process, but the fact that Save a Greek Stray refused to give up on this dog is a testament to their dedication and compassion.

Treating the dog is just the beginning of his journey, as he will need ongoing care and support to overcome the trauma he has experienced. It’s heartening to know that there are organizations like Save a Greek Stray that are committed to helping animals in need, and that there are people who are willing to go above and beyond to make a difference in the lives of these animals.

Overall, the story of the dog found living in a sewer drain is a reminder of the challenges faced by stray animals and the importance of organizations and individuals who are dedicated to their welfare. It’s heartening to know that there are people who are willing to step up and make a difference, even in the face of seemingly insurmountable obstacles.
