A lady was recently driving her car up through the mountains to return to the village where she lived when she thought she saw something moving in the bushes on the side of the road in Greece The kind woman got out, walked through the high grass, and saw a tiny puppy trembling all alone in the bushes. No one else was around, and the little guy was scared and without anyone to care for him.

Nearby the woman found the body of a dead pup, likely the fearful puppy’s brother. She called DAR Animal Rescue, and when they arrived on the scene they saw a very dangerous area with no houses around near endless fields. The rescuers looked all around and had a hard time finding the puppy, but after a long while, he appeared. He was sick, skinny, and confused as to what was happening. No one knew how he got there or what happened to him.

They immediately drove him to a veterinarian where he was diagnosed with skin problems, had diarrhea, and was vomiting. He remained in the hospital a few days, was taken into DAR Animal Rescue, but got sick again. His saviors refused to give up on him, and they knew he just needed more professional care at the veterinary hospital. After a few more weeks, he turned around and grew into a happy, healthy dog.
