We were horrified when Luke came home one day and showed us pictures he had taken of a dog with an extremely matted coat. He had been unable to approach the dog as it was growling and went off in the other direction. We went out several times a day to try and find him. Weeks later, Tony and the boys did find him but the dog hid under a van. At any approach he would growl and threaten them. He did seem less threatened by females and after days of me patiently sitting on the road trying to coax him with food, we were able to catch him and bring him home. Matty was extremely aggressive and untrusting. It was quite a struggle to get his coat clipped. The poor dog was in so much pain as his legs were all matted together and all his claws were over grown. Matty decided that he likes and trusts two human beings but anyone else, he will bite. Even family members that he sees every day, cannot touch him. We since found out that he spent 6 months at the isolator (shelter) in Smolian before somehow finding himself on the streets of Rudozem. I visited the isolator and was shown the “cell” where Matty was kept. It was a small concrete pen with nothing at all to lie on. The pens are hosed down with cold water with the dogs still in them. The dogs do not get out and are fed on bones and if they are lucky they get a stock cube in some water. Matty was castrated whilst at the isolator. It is little wonder that he doesn’t trust people as we have heard reports of the dogs being castrated whilst still awake. To this day we do not know how he survived his time at the isolator, we are just glad that he did and that he is safe and loved for the rest of his days. www.streetdogrescue.com
