Today we went out of town in our quest for urchins, but never arrived at our finding place.
Twenty kilometers out of Marmaris, laying in the middle of the road, was this dog who some soulless driver had hit.
Cars went around him but nobody stopped.
Of course, we did and took him back to our vet who did some first help, and than to another vet who has x-rays. He will operate on him today, his hind leg is badly broken.
It is a young male border collie mix. It had a nylon cord tyed terribly tigthly around his neck. Maybe he was bound somewhere and broke free, or maybe somebody threw him out a car, because there were no houses in the vicinity.
We tried to get the interest the Association for the Protection of animals, but they wouldn't hear of it.
We will get a very high vet bill. If you can help a bit with it, we would be really greatful. He will also need a home in a few days. He is the sweetest thing, wagging his tail despite his pain.
He is terribly smelly right now, but will clean up beautifully.
If you can miss a few dollars, it would help us greatly to pay his bill, please if you can miss a bit paypal it to us through our email: star-of-the-east(at)hotmail(dot)com
We will go back later today to see how everything went and to pay the expenses.
