The animal was rescued by a family holidaying in the Andalucia town
The vets worked to make the dog comfortable but unfortunately, he did not have a microchip so his owners haven’t been located. Given the seriousness of the abuse, Galgos del Sur was called in, and he is now receiving pain relief and several daily medications to treat the extensive burns. This week, the dog is due to undergo surgery and the association has indicated that his recovery will be a long one.
The president of Galgos del Sur, Patricia Almansa, has condemned the abuse and lamented the fact that cases such as this are becoming more commonplace. She has appealed to both the central government and local councils to take a tougher stance against this kind of animal cruelty.
