The heroic folks at Howl Of A Dog found Maya on a roadside parking lot, miles away from the city. It was one of the hottest days of the summer, and Maya could barely move — she just lay there on her side, weak, helpless and thirsty. The scorching minutes counted down her fate. But the second her savior held out a kind hand, it was clear Maya wanted to live, and that she had a heart of gold.
As a stray dog, every day was a struggle for survival — but now she’s discovering a brand new world. Maya was so puzzled when she was given toys for the first time; she didn’t know what to do with them! “And then such a joy to see the sparkle in her eyes when she started to play…” the staff says.
Since her rescue, Maya has begun to experience playing, running, and socializing with other animals. She’s getting more confident and joyful every day, she loves to be around people and most of of all, she loves to be cuddled.
At Howl Of A Dog, many of the dogs they rescue are ones that would otherwise have very few chances of surviving by themselves on the streets and would be usually scheduled for euthanasia in kill-shelters from Romania. Being unfairly considered “less-adoptable” because they are old, blind, abused, traumatized or injured, these dogs wait for a home much longer than the average adoptable pet does, sometimes even years.
