Again about Negro: can someone adopt him?

Friday, September 28th, 2007

NegroNegro is a spayed stray dog who was able to survive for the 5 last years with the support of many, in the streets of Parikia. He must be the most known stray of Parikia.
He suffers from Leishmania, which is causing to him eczemas. He is under veterinary care and receives adequate therapy.
Because the municipality doesn’t want him any more to go around as a stray, it is urgent to find for him a place where he could be temporary properly kept or, ideally, someone who can adopt him.
With the proper care, Negro could eventually recover completely and become best company for his new master.

Little Chica lost on main road

Monday, September 24th, 2007

0-chica.jpg  Biggie saw this little female of only 35cm following a group of backpackers on the main road between Delfini and Germanika on Sunday afternoon. The same evening, AC, an animal lover, found her obviously distressed and lost around the same area. She called Barbara and Biggie (BarBigs) and asked if she could bring the female to Barbaras home, which has been serving as a temporary shelter for abandonned, lost and wounded animals for the past years. Even though the number of dogs and therefore the amount of work is overwhelming, they accepted to take in the dog. She is about 1 year old and well fed, a friendly litte female.

Fidelias Operation

Sunday, September 23rd, 2007

0-hpim4649.jpg  0-fidelia.jpg   Fidelia had an operation on her front leg in Munich yesterday. It was a difficult operation and it cost 900€. The vet in Munich said it was necessary because the two vets that saw her in Paros failed to stabilize the fractured bone (see crooked leg in photo 1) in time. Please note that the expenses for this operation will not be carried by PAWS but by Private Donors. The first one, Irene, an animal lover from Kloten, Switzerland, has donated 120€, which will be used towards this cause. We thank her!

(Un)lucky Day

Saturday, September 22nd, 2007

0-dsc00520.jpg   0-canella.jpg Should we call this a lucky or unlucky day? Some friends and owners of a Parosdog, which they adopted 2 years ago, came to visit and to help with the dog-walking. When they got to the main road, they found a dog tied to a bush. The grown female is a Munsterlander and we guess that nobody lost her…

Little Lucky

Saturday, September 22nd, 2007

0-dsc00564.jpg 0-hpim4737.jpg 0-dsc00566.jpg Lucky is a fortunately not so unfortunate little puppy so far. Somebody tied her up in a plastic bag and threw her in the garbage bin some time on Thursday. Thursday night around 10 p.m. two tourists from GB found her and took her out of the bag and laid her next to the garbage, according to them. Today (Saturday), when they passed by the same garbage bin, the puppy was still there and still alive. Seems incredible. And if it is true, she owes her life mainly to the fact that the temperature was moderate all day yesterday and today. She arrived at BarBigs around noon and has been drinking from the bottle. More news to come. See the other dogs greeting her (nice little snack?) in photo 1 when she came home…

Naoussa News

The shy female from Naoussa is accepting the firs contacts. She is mostly resting and seems utterly exhausted. The male we brought home is a beautiful specimen, did anybody lose him? His leg and his face are being treated and the wounds look a bit better now.

Big Job in Naoussa

Friday, September 21st, 2007

0-calypso1.jpg 0-hpim4703.jpg  We got a phone call by a German woman currently staying at Hotel Calypso in Naoussa (Kirsten is holding the beige male in the second photo). She informed us that there was a female without a collar around the beach who was on heat and who was being followed for 48 hours now by several large males who were fighting among themselves. Hotel guests could not sleep at night and families were afraid for their children in the day time on the beach. We went to look for her/them and spent a large part of the afternoon there, trying to catch the shy female, without success. We had tied up most of the males (is it a surprise, that one of the large males we had met only recently was here again today?) We did take the only male without a collar home with us, because he has a deep wound on his leg. With the female, we were not successful the first time and came back later in the afternoon, after taking care of the animals at home. Our friends from Germany, Claudia and Uli, helped. It is a strange situation: you want to catch a shy dog, but you are afraid it will bite you. Your hand wants to grab the dog but then again it hesitates because fear controls it. And if you grab, you have to be in the right place, be firm and never let go. Uli was the bravest and he got her just before nightfall. The pictures show the situation on the beach in the afternoon, some of the tied up males, the female just before and after we got her finally. More news about her to come.
