An update from Albania, land of the street dogs! When Fabian and I first arrived in Albania and realized the cruelty shown to street dogs, we wanted to leave. I didn't want to have anything to do with an country so ignorant to animals.
“We are not vets and our shelter is not ready yet. He needs special treatment. Here is the number for a vet in Durres. But if the leg is broken is little we can do in Albania. There is no vet who can do a good job. They just take money and after surgery the situation might be worse.”
This is Dash. He is a happy six month old puppy living on the beach in Albania. A beach life sounds great, but Albania is very unkind to stray dogs. He eats food from the dumpsters and struggles to find fresh water during the hot summer days.
