Kiara Ijzendoorn and her family were on holiday in Crete, Greece. When they were driving around they spotted an injured dog lying in the middle of the road. The dog was barely able to move because he has broken spine.
‘His leg was totally paralyzed. He had a big bump on his back that was his broken spine’, said Ijzendoorn.
It turned out that the dog had been living with that condition for a long time. He was staying in a nearby barn, all by himself and completely neglected.
Ijzendoorn has visited the dog in the barn, several times. Despite he was injured, the dog was always very happy to see her. Ijzendoorn fell in love with him and decided to take him home. While she was in Greece, she took him to a vet where was determined that the dog had most likely been abused. The new owner named the dog Fos, which means ‘shining’ in Greek.
Kiara and her family flew back to Holland and took their new friend with them. Now, he is doing so much better and is recovering fast. Today, Fos is shining with happiness.
