In May 2019, a young and injured dog was found by a community of Roma. They contacted our Stray Animal Care team in Romania and asked for help. Our team set out on the journey immediately.
We were impressed by the response of the Roma community. Everyone was very worried and wanted assurances that Mia will receive emergency aid. They were witnesses as the dog was hit by a car, the driver just drove off, leaving the little victim bleeding and in pain.
Mia, approximate 3 months old, was obviously in agony. Her front paw was bent, open and full of blood. We could see that she was very scared, but she seemed to trust that our team was there to help.
Our team rushed back to the clinic, where she underwent emergency surgery and received antibiotics, pain killers and anti-inflammatory. Mia is a gentle and docile soul, and we hope she will get well soon. She will get further treatment including deworming and flea control, vaccinations and we will try to find a good family for her.
Until then, she stays in our partner shelter Speranta in Bucharest.
Update Feb 20 2020
Mia is an energetic, lively dog. The only moments when she is not playing is when she sleeps. Otherwise, if she could play without stopping, she would! She is extremely friendly with other dogs and challenges everyone to play. Although Mia only has three legs, when it comes to football she is always the winner!
