After A Horrific Injury, This Sweet Dog Is On The Road To Recovery

A Good Samaritan and animal rescue volunteer have come to the aid of a sweet, young pup known as Mara, who was found by a local with a dislocated jaw in an extremely malnourished condition. Believed to have been ignored by the community of Karditsa, Greece, for 15 days, Mara’s jaw was at a complete right angle to her face, leaving her in excruciating pain and unable to eat or drink.

This gentle dog was left wounded and starving for 15 days before anyone took notice of her. When someone notified the rescue center ‘Diasozo’, they found Mara howling in pain with her jaw dangling off her face. She could not close her mouth and could not even take a drink of water. The stray was believed to have been kicked with great force in the face, causing these horrific injuries.

Mara was rushed to a vet, who upon seeing the state of her jaw, immediately took her into surgery. The blunt force trauma to the dog’s face caused a dislocation and multiple breakages within her jaw. Thankfully, the surgeon was able to repair most of the damage, leaving Mara whole again.

Although Mara has to wear a splint and cone to ensure her injuries healed, the pup is said to be in very high spirits, enjoying the love and attention of volunteers and her rescuers. Mara has also progressed onto liquid foods, with her jaw growing stronger every day.

Thanks to the incredible work of veterinarians and the volunteers at ‘Diasozo’, stray and injured dogs like Mara are given a second chance at life and finding their ‘forever home’. With the number of stray animals in Greece on the rise and animal abuse an all too familiar narrative, it is imperative that people are aware of the many injured or starving animals out there, and do whatever they can to help them.
