These pics show the adorable near-blind dog that has been rescued after being left to die tied to a roadside tree without food or water.
According to local media, members of the NGO ‘Bor’s Paws’ received a report that two girls were seen tying a dog to a roadside tree in the eastern Serbian city of Bor.
The female dog was then found without food or water and was taken to a vet who diagnosed it with having cataracts and eye parasites and said it was practically blind.
The poor pooch also had a heart murmur and a body temperature of over 40 degrees, according to reports.
A ‘Bor’s Paws’ spokesperson said: “We don’t know how long she was tied there, nor do we understand how somebody could do such a thing.
“She is otherwise happy, although when we put her on a lead, she becomes very scared, starts to shake and lowers her head to the floor.
“We can only imagine what was happening to her during these two or three years of life.”
The NGO has named the dog Srecka and said that she is eating and drinking well, but is still not responding to the ongoing therapy.
Netizen ‘Nora’ commented: “The culprit deserves life in prison. Someone who does that to an angel that loves you unconditionally is not human.”
‘Aca’ said: “When the person is found, the same should be done to them.”
It is currently unclear whether the local authorities are investigating the alleged abandonment.
