Stray Dog Who Chases After Woman On Beach Turns Out To Be A Treasure In Disguise
Valia Orfanidou used to witness solitary animals roaming the streets of Athens, in Greece. Since there are many, the lady always selects to save those who need help: the ill, famished or unwell.
However, in August 2017 a puppy that witnessed a stray dog walking on the beach. Nothing about him looked particularly amiss, or that he required assistance in any way. But he felt vulnerable to him, so he decided to do something for the small animal.
The small dog lay onto its back and let Orfanidou massage its tummy. He had no one to care for him in the world, yet he still had a lot of love to share. She was desperate for attention,” Orfanidou told The Dodo.
Looking at the puppy, he realized that it was a female. She for days she watched her play alone in the sand and pursue all the automobiles and people who went through the location. She was desperate for attention. “I couldn’t sleep for two days, trying to find a way to remove her off that beach as quickly as possible ,” Orfanidou added.
Until one day, he couldn’t take it anymore and placed her in his car. Along the way, she decided to call her Blue, alluding to the water that accompanied her the first months of her existence. And although she found someone to save her, the dog herself needed a permanent home.
Just at that moment, a family in the Netherlands suffered the loss of one of their puppies. The Folkerts fell in love with Blue and due to the Second Chance Animal Rescue Society (SCARS), the adoption was made possible.
Orfanidou had some chats with Folkerts to see whether Blue would be a match for the family, which includes her other dog and a few of cats as well. A week later, with the support of Animal Association International (AAI), Blue was already on her way to the Netherlands.
And things went well from the beginning. “Rincewind, who was with us, quickly fell in love with her. That was incredibly lovely and she was very welcome. She and Rincewind are closest friends,” stated Karin Folkerts.
Blue trained to be a therapy dog, and began visiting a nursing home. People lighted up when they saw her.
