Introducing Fabianne, luckily for her she was found by some volunteers, under a small bridge under the Andalucia motorway, on top of an old mattress.
This particular day it was pouring with rain and she was soaking wet.
At first they thought she was a puppy, but it turns out she is approximately 6 years of age, and weighing only 11kg.
She was in a state of hypothermia and malnourished to such an extent that she was near death.
She had no microchip, of course, but she had a tattoo of the last 4 digits of the hunter's (galguero) ID number.
She isn't the first case to be found like this, it's quite common. They are illegal hunters, so they don't put a proper identification on their dogs. The dogs live in communal shelters, so badly that they either die there or they 'throw them away', as they have with Fabianne.
At the moment we are waiting for details of where she is now being looked after.........
