Newlyweds Aliki and Walter from Canada were on their honeymoon in Greece when they came across an atrocity they never anticipated: a dog eaten alive by parasites with only weeks to live. He was a homeless man who lived in a small community and was just skin and bones. When the dog approached the driver’s window as they drove down the street, it was clear he wanted help! When the couple first noticed him, he was very much curled up and extremely worried, possibly due to previous mistreatment by strangers.

When the couple first saw him, he cowered a lot and was very scared, likely due to his previous experiences with people who hadn’t been “particularly nice” to him. Despite his awful condition, however, his little tail that he kept between his legs was wagging happily. He was happy to find people who were kind enough to pay attention to him.

The couple, inspired by Greek Animal Rescue and Diasozo, decided to help this unfortunate and lonely pup. Both men knew they couldn’t leave him behind and said there was something about him that compelled them to help him.

Rescuers pulled him off the street and gave him a can of food which he ate in a few bites. He was then taken to the clinic, where he received treatment for scabies and an examination for intestinal parasites.

Vets believed that if he lived on the streets any longer, he would be dead within weeks. But luckily he was saved just in time and was on the road to recovery.
