Stray Dog with Embedded Wire Around His Leg Gets the Help He Needs

When DAR Animal Rescue was alerted about a large stray dog with a wire embedded in its front leg, they knew they were facing a challenging situation. The alert came from a local group dedicated to caring for the town’s street animals, emphasizing the urgent need for medical intervention.

“Catching him was no easy task, he was in pain, afraid, and suffering,” wrote Ermioni of DAR Animal Rescue on YouTube. Despite the difficulties, a devoted team of rescuers rallied and sprung into action.

The stray dog, who they named “Samson,” had fallen into a dry canal and required the strength of ten people to lift him out. Upon arrival at the vet, the severity of Samson’s injury became painfully clear.

The wire, which was an illegal snare typically used for capturing wild pigs in Greece, had cut deep into Samson’s leg. This steel wire was tightly bound around his leg, and removing it was a challenging process. Regrettably, the damage was so severe that amputation was the only option. Samson, however, showed incredible resilience and made a full recovery. After healing, he was returned to his neighborhood to reunite with his fellow stray friends.

“Today, Samson is neutered, healthy, and happy, even as a stray,” the team shared. “We will, of course, always keep an eye on him.” Moreover, there are people in his area who ensure the well-being of stray animals like Samson.

Not all stray dogs in Greece are suitable for shelters or considered adoptable. However, with the vigilant care of local animal lovers and the dedicated team at DAR Animal Rescue, Samson will be well-looked after. Witnessing his spirits rise upon reuniting with his pack is truly an uplifting sight.
