A Dutch woman named Kiara Ijzendoorn was vacationing on Crete when she found an injured dog on the side of the road.
“His leg was totally paralyzed. He had a big bump on his back that was his broken spine,” according to Kiara.
The dog was living in a nearby barn, all alone. It was filled with garbage.
Over the next few days Ijzendoorn returned to the barn to visit and feed the injured dog, whom she named Fos, which means light in Greek.
He was such a sweet, loving dog, and Ijzendoorn knew what she had to do.
“We could not leave him.”
She took him to a vet, treated him for his injuries and arranged all the necessary paperwork to fly Fos home to Holland where he’s started his new life.
Today, Fos is still recovering from his broken spine. He’s scared of older men and some cats… But appears happy and healthy.
