Starved and sick Pit Bull partially blind was rescued too late
Starved and sick Pit Bull partially blind was rescued too late. She very sick actually. He was spotted by a woman near one of Athens. Who posted two photos of him on Facebook, begging for help.
According to her, the dog owner kept him tied 24/7, until they left for their summer vacation, and decided to let him loose. Their future plans were to put him to sleep. Once they got back, so that he wouldn’t suffer. The local charity, SPAZ, responded immediately and Spirit -as they named him, was rescued. Spirit was literally starved. He weighed about half of what a healthy Pit Bull should and he suffered from leishmaniasis.
A disease caused by infected sundfly bites that can turn out to be leathal if the dog is not treated in time. Leishmaniasis was probably one of the reasons for Spirit’s weight loss, the sores on his body and his damaged eye.
