She was abandoned in the public shelter last spring. We got her out just before a free spay/neuter campaign, we spayed and the freed her on the streets of Moreni; we had absolutely no room in Happy Paws for her and we were having problems with one of our "intelligent" neighbors at that time. Marilena would go feed her every day, but she was very unhappy and refused to eat; soon, she became even thinner than before. It was obvious to us she was a dog with an owner and she would not resist alone on the streets, because she desperately needed to feel she belonged somewhere. I have no idea why the owner didn't see the obvious...he must have not cared at all about her life...she was, after all, "just a dog".
