We had seen Nikos at the public pound of Sparta, outside the barbed wire. He was tied up in the distance, and from afar he looked dead.

Of the 44 dogs we got from there by prosecutor's order, Nick looked the sickest. However, all his tests showed nothing, apart from a dog that had been left to die of simple starvation. He arrived one step before death literally, but began to recover and from day one he had an appetite for food.

He has gained back his strength, but he remains skinny. He is a large, imposing dog, that deserves only respect, and his recovery is a huge relief for us. He is currently only available for virtual adoption only.
