We've had a call to rescue this dog whose owner no longer wants him.

The dog is chained up all day to a kennel on a very isolated piece of land.

To make matters worse, the dog is sadly blind.

The owner has said that if we don't come and fetch the dog he will "definitely take him to the forest and kill him".

We obviously can't let that happen but we will need funds to look after this dog.

Initially we will place him in a pension where he can recover and settle. Then he will be taken to our shelter to mix with the other dogs.

Longer term, we hope to rehome the dog through Blind Dog Rescue UK or a similar organisation.

But first we must secure his freedom.

If you can please help us to rescue this dog, we will be eternally grateful. Donations will be used for vet treatment/check ups and his initial stay at the pension.

 

UPDATE 20/11/20

We've done what we set out to do and are pleased to announce that we have managed to rescue this blind dog from his horrible owner and now he is safely in our care and will never be tied up again.

We have named him Robin.

These are photos after his rescue. On some, you can see the rope that kept him tied up for a long period of his life.

This rescue was only made possible because of your kind help and support.

We wouldn't have let you or Robin down but we still needed your generous donations to make it happen.

Now Robin will spend some time at the pension getting used to people and other dogs before being moved to our shelter.

At the moment he is very thin and was very hungry and thirsty when we first took him. Being blind, he is very sensitive to noise and is frightened of anything loud or sudden.

We will step gently with Robin during the days and weeks ahead.

The main thing is he is free and has a brighter future. Hopefully he will be rehomed and can put his past behind him.

We still need donations to pay for his vet treatment/check ups and the cost of his stay at the pension is 2.5 euros a day or 70 euros a month.

 

UPDATE 20/11/20

This is blind dog Robin's first day at the Pension after his successful rescue the other night.

In the daylight, you can see the beautiful colours of his coat and his lovely face.

Who would believe this same dog was tied up for years with little or no human contact.

Robin will stay at the pension for a few weeks at least to settle and to socialise with other dogs and humans.

Thank you again to everyone who has made this day happen !!!

This is the first day of the rest of Robin's life !!!

The cost of his stay at the pension is 2.5 euros a day or 70 euros a month.
