Another case of animal cruelty - this is the case of a galga which was found by a girl in the middle of the street in terrible condition. The girl, who is a student, took the dog to the Vet despite not having enough money to pay the treatment...the Vet said she is covered in injuries probably because she has been used for sparring - bait for dog fighting. She has been bitten everywhere...broken teeth...anemia...skin Leishmania...an eye in very bad state, torn part of the ear...etc. etc. The galga has been named Yuki.
Here is an Internet translation.
We called her Yuki, which means courage. No chip, or strength. And yes much, much pain, immense sadness and clinging to life. She is about 3 years old and black. This greyhound is alive at this time thanks to the opportunity to have crossed her a good person who, without thinking of anything else, has picked her up in this terrible state.
She has had to suffer the unspeakable wounds everywhere. A vet said they could have used to whip fighting dogs, is terrified and very weak, bites on legs and face. (Probably has fracture). Also broken teeth. Possible leishmania, looking at the skin. She has a anaem and is starved.These pictures pierce the soul.
Lidia (the rescuer has sought early medical care but can not physically bear the costs that will be generated. Yuki has spent the weekend at home on special food. Bills will be scanned for transparency of costs. Hopefully Yuki will recover and eventually be ready for fostering and adoption. She is in Murcia.

She is in a foster home where she is attended by her foster mum who is a nurse and gives her the injections as well as all the attention she needs. She is in a normal home with a nurse who can attend her day and night and where she is warm.
She is ok although very weak, with more nurses than in a hospital, all friends of the girl who rescued her. Today she is at the vet, to check properly all the wounds and start with the proper treatment. She has eaten and drunk which is really, really good but until she no longer has infection, nothing can be done to the wounds.
Tomorrow she will have checked the ears and the left eye (they fear she might lose it), and blood samples and x-rays, there might be a possible bone broken and she´s got broken teeth. First she has to get well before she can face any surgery. The leishmania is only in the skin what is great. Until she recovers nothing can be done properly. The vet thinks she was used for sparring
(The story is on facebook and I have been following it. The above is a mixture of the updates as they were posted. There are also photos of the vet invoices so far, so rest assured this is a genuine appeal)
