Xena was found tangled in barbed wire, in December by a young boy. She was kept in the city centre of stray dog care for a week where she was spayed, then returned to the boys family until a foster home was found. 2 days later she caught parvovirus and was brought to the vet in a coma. She was kept there until our contact took in Lesvos took her in, she was in a terrible way and weighed only 4.8kg.
She has now had her paralysed leg amputated and gets on just fine with three legs.
Xena is a sweet dog who originally did not know how to be affectionate with people. Xena used to hide when strangers came to the shelter but now she greets them at the door! She now loves a cuddle and regularly puts her paw on you asking to be stroked. She loves people, plays with other dogs and has made so much progress since first being rescued.
She’s not too keen on loud noises or heavy traffic but her foster mum is trying to socialise her more with this. She loves a ride in the car and a good walk.
She would be suited to a home in a fairly rural area. If you are interested in rehoming her, please get in touch.
