There are millions of stray dogs in the world each year. Living their lives in the streets is never easy for them. They have to fight for food and water, get thrown at by terrified humans, and they get hit by cars that would sometimes make them end up injured or dead.
Jasmine was a stray dog in Greece. She lived there for almost all of her life. However, her life was put to risk when she got hit by a car and never received medication.
The bout left her with an injured leg and incontinence. Jasmine wobbled in the streets for months before someone called the shelter and reported. She was afraid to approach them at first, but with love and compassion, she finally gave in.
After a series of treatments, she bloomed and became the shelter’s happy dog. However, no one wanted to adopt Jasmine. She watched as her furry friends come and go for two years.
As the months passed by quickly, Jasmine’s demeanor changed when her also three-legged friend Scarlet found a loving home in a person named Gina. She is not that happy dog they once knew. Yet, Gina always knew she would come back for the poor dog.
After one and a half years of waiting, Gina came back and adopted him as well! The rescuer brought Jasmine to her home, where she’ll live with Scarlet, another dog, and a cat.
The rescuers always knew Jasmine as a happy dog, but they never saw her face lit up like that.
Gina is one of a kind. She doesn’t care how her dogs look or how Jasmine needs a diaper wherever she goes and causes unwanted attention from strangers.
She said, “Jasmine may not be able to control her body, but she does control her soul, and she has [the] soul of an angel. And after I adopted her, I kept apologizing to her [on] behalf of the human race.”
