Back in 2015, a woman in Athens, Greece spotted a dog whose face had completely hardened due to mange. Her condition would later earn her the name “Petra”, which is Greek for “stone”.
The woman who found her snapped a picture and posted it to Facebook in hopes someone would see it and help end the dog’s suffering. It worked. Petra’s timid nature made it difficult for volunteers to get a hold of her, but they were persistent. She was then brought to the Save a Greek Stray animal shelter where was treated for virtually everything.
Today, no one would recognise the happy dog who volunteers believe never interacted with humans until they found her. Read her inspiring transformation story as a great reminder that there is still some good in the world.
