In rural Romania, volunteers from the Howl of a Dog organization organized a sterilization day. The dog was waiting for them every day in the same place.
Excited, he greeted them every morning with his bright eyes and his tail wagging happily. The dog they called “Remy” had traces of his difficult life on his body.
The animal was marked with burning iron on its muzzle, according to the beliefs of rural Romania it improves its immune system and prevents distemper, this superstitious practice is unfortunately common in the region.
Stray dog waits to be rescued
The dog was missing much of the ear, and in the village, no one knew how to respond to the volunteer about what had happened to the poor animal, and he saw no point in helping him find a home.
The volunteers of the shelter consider that the lack of interest of the inhabitants of the city for the dog could be due to the fact that in these rural areas, the dogs are considered as working tools, for them a friendly dog like Rémy is considered as useless.
A woman who runs a grocery store fed him and let him sleep outside her store, but she never saw the intention of providing a home for the sweet animal.
Remy, who had already learned to be ignored by the townspeople, couldn’t hide his enthusiasm for receiving the affection of the volunteers who visited his town, so every morning he waited to greet them.
The volunteers discovered and determined that Remy had no one and decided to take him with them to the shelter. There, Remy was vaccinated, sterilized and most precious of all, for the first time in his life he received love and attention.
You can see the volunteer with Rémy in this video:
When he was found recovered, Rémy was put up for adoption. Howl of a Dog posted on Facebook to announce that the dog has found a home and is now happy with his new family.
If you would like to learn more about the adoption process, Howl of a Dog also offers international adoptions, you can find out on their website.
