Laika’s is, unfortunately, a story like many others. “Taken as a puppy as a gift for children and kept at home until she is grown up. After the children’s whim was over, it was simply “arranging” it elsewhere. “Elsewhere, in his case, was in the countryside, in the Bari area, on land owned by the family. So, from one day to the next, it was found under a tree, with a chain around her neck.
“Laika found herself outdoors, with a tree to house her and without the possibility of moving, being tied to the chain in an unfenced property. It was only untied when the owner went to the countryside to cultivate the land. So one bad day went away, reached the road and was run over ».
She survived the accident with a broken leg in several places, of which she still bears the marks and a slight lameness. “There is a lot of money to treat her, so the sterilization was unfortunately postponed and Laika, always and only on the chain, gave birth to six puppies, of which only two survived: the other four were killed in front of her eyes by wild animals and their torn bodies were found in the field ». An endless pain for this little dog who had to watch helplessly in the death of the puppies, unable to defend them.
Laika lived like this for eight long years outdoors. Then last September the owners sold the land and she was moved to a kennel. To offer him a new life is the Fuori di coda association of Bari, which is looking for a family for her that can offer him the love he needs.
She weighs 15 kilos, has a low Leishmaniasis index and even though she is in Puglia she is ready to travel to her dream home. To offer you this possibility you can write to 349/5807931 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
