Sabby is a smallish Cross-Breed of around five years old fostered in Norwich. Sabby’s story is a difficult one to read but its important that the story is told for anyone to begin to understand what she has been through. If you consider that cruelty and suffering of dogs as a whole in Romania is commonplace imagine how bad a case of cruelty has to be there to make the TV news! Yet her story was televised and the vet that saved her interviewed and even in such a country perhaps a spark of sympathy was lit.
Sabby was found in a town in Romania that is renowned for the poor treatment of street animals. She had a horrific injury around her hips/back where some psycho had tried to slice her in half with a sword. The injury was open and down to the bone and her recovery took many months. The pain she must have endured prior to being rescued and given pain relief cannot even be imagined and the fact that she could emerge from this ordeal with any trust at all in humans is nothing short of miraculous.
Two years on and Sabby is at last ready for a new home. Without a doubt her new family will have to be patient and understanding as she will always live with the ghosts from that fateful day. She is very weary of men and may always be and who on earth could blame her. With women she just takes a couple of days to get used to them and is then an affectionate little lap dog. She mixes well with other dogs and commonly uses dogs she knows well as her pillow!
Sabby is now enjoying her walks and starting to enjoy the world around her. She will always bear the physical and mental scars of the cowardly act that made her hit the headlines but she is still a sweet and loving little girl who can have a bright and happy future.
