Good dog owners usually bring their four-legged companions straight to the vet the minute they realize something is wrong. Stray dogs, on the other hand, are often left to suffer from their condition for months or even years before being rescued and treated.
So when a stray dog in Greece started developing a tumor in her neck, she was forced to live with it for months without treatment. And by the time rescuers did find her, the tumor had grown so large that she was in constant pain and it made it impossible for her to even lift her head up.
The poor stray named Agnes wandered the streets of Karditsa, Greece for six months looking for help. However, while a few showed her kindness and fed her, many other tried to chase her away with sticks or shooting her with guns. Thankfully, a kind villager spotted Agnes and reached out to the Greek Animal Rescue, who rushed over to rescue her.
The 7-year-old was initially afraid of the rescue team, but once she realized they only wanted to help, she happily went with them to the vet, who performed immediate surgery to remove the four-pound tumor. After the surgery, Agnes’ posture immediately improved and she couldn’t stop smiling.
Agnes stayed in the rescue’s care for three more months to recover from additional surgeries to heal from gunshot wounds and remove other tumors in her chest. However, when she was finally healthy, she was adopted by a loving family in England.
Watch the entire video below to see Agnes’ incredible transformation.
