The chain around her neck was so tight that it perforated the windpipe.The vets could not believe that she was still alive.The first picture was taken a month after the beginning of cures, when the worst wounds were already healed, while the hole in the larynx is still clearly visible.Thanks to the plastic surgery performed by Dr. Luca Pastore, a member of Unisvet, Evelina is now sane and has found a home in Sweden.
On the 29th of June she was there, among other 6 or 7 big size dogs. She was small and terrified. The following day they would have killed her. “I want that one”. And in that moment, for little MIA everything changed. Since that day she’s been at one of my collaborator’s place in Bucharest. She’s scared, she doesn’t want to go out but she loves being held and she can recover from the trauma of those 13 days in the cages of the public Bucharest dogs’ home, among the screams of her a likes sentenced to death. MIA isn’t young: she’s at least 7 years old.
MIA together with her new little sister
What is the biggest dream of a person who loves dogs? Having an affectionate, sweet, cuddles loving dog: in short, a dream dog. Those who think only a wonderful puppy coming from a so called ‘good family’ can have these qualities has never experienced the love that an abandoned and mistreated dog can give, a dog who had to fight for survival every day in the Romanian streets. It’s enough to look in her eyes to understand my heart made the best choice. Even a not so young dog deserves to be happy and to lead a serene life. I made her feel what it means to be loved and she’s already thanked me a thousand times for this, in her own way. My dream has become reality – MIA, the little dog rescued by Sara at the death dogs’ home of Chiajna. A thousand thanks, Sara, for what you’ve done for MIA and for all the other lives you saved!
