Story, Personality, Others:
Relya was found on the street. She had a big tumor on her back leg and was very skinny (see the last photo in the slideshow). Probably her owner had her like this, let the tumor grow, and one day decided to abandon her so as not to have to spend any money in a vet on the dog. Many people think that dogs should not generate any costs.
She was delivered to a local municipal pound who maintained her like she was, with the tumor on her leg. Afterwards the municipal pound dispatched her to the private shelter, without even vaccinating her and like this let others worry about the leg with the tumor and the cost of the operation.
And in the shelter she was indeed operated. Because there people care…. She was also sterilised. The surgery went well, Relya recovered nicely and even after the surgery she put on weight, which was great to notice. She is like a different dog now.
Relya is very sweet and extremely gentle. She is a bit shy at the first contact, but still very gentle, and she likes attention and cuddles. She walks well on the leash. She is good with all other dogs. There is no doubt that this dog lived in a home all her life but the shelters are full of old dogs in her situation, this is the reality.
What happens all the time is that people get rid of their old dogs when they are old and off they go to get new puppies.
