A SAVAGE IMAGE OF ROMANIA: The dog Grivita is stronger than the person who mutilated her - she remained gentle and ready to give more LOVE.

Oh Desanka, My heart is broken over the whole situation with the dogs in Romania, and now possibly Bosnia and Herzegovina. I just want to scream. Then you see the picture of Grivita and to read her story, I raise my hands to heaven and cry out why? I have to take a deep breath and work a little harder. Thank you so much Desanka for keeping us up to date on this situation.

S & N! Awful. Romania disgusts me as a nation. I know there are caring people there trying to do their best to save the dogs. After doing a study on how their "stray children" are cared for in their society, I expect no less. Many of those orphans brought up with no empathy are likely some of the ones responsible in some way for this crisis.

???How can someone do that? It is beyond my comprehension.
I'm so glad these kind people rescued brave Grivita who... "was wagging with her tail when rescuers arrived"... }:*-(

There is no excuse for what Romania and the Romanian people have done to these poor defenseless animals. They should be treated to some of this horror and see how they like it.

Dogs like Grivita are not as uncommon as we think. There are many we don't know about.

Grivita, the best of everything that life has to offer. You are a kind gentle soul and this is what you deserve. Love and compassion. You will get it in spades.

I'm not a fan, but perhaps you could mention the September 2 mauling death of a 4-year-old boy, who was attacked by wild dogs in a city park while playing with his brother, or perhaps it's the 10,000 dog bites in the first 8 months of this year, or perhaps it's the fact that 1,000 and 1,000's of stray dogs roaming around puts not only them in danger -- but also the well-being and health of pets and people. Perhaps the 2008 law stating no healthy animal should be put to sleep is to blame. Now the shelter system that is bursting with dogs, who are starving, fighting each other and suffering from various diseases. Perhaps a donation would be more effective than indignation?

John, I didn't mention the death of a 4-year-old boy or anything else because this was GRIVITA'S STORY and I wanted to point out that the only way out is to YES TO LIFE AND NO DEATH !!!

This wave of barbarism is now drowning Romania, and human beings of all ages are being threatened, attacked, beaten and have even been killed in their attempt to protect the animals. The Declaration of Human Rights is now being severely violated in Romania!

Only a few of these crimes have reached the media:

A MAN KILLED WHILE TRYING TO PROTECT A DOG FROM SEVERE ABUSE:
http://www.ziare.com/stiri/omor/ucis-pentru-ca-a-incercat-sa-salveze-un-maidanez-1032783

A WOMAN GOT HER DOG SHOT WHILE WALKING HIM/HER: http://www.enational.ro/news/cruzime-incredibila-in-bucuresti-caine-impuscat-chiar-sub-ochii-stapanei-332774.html/

WOMAN BEATEN AND ABUSED BY DOGCATCHERS WHO STOLE HER DOG THAT SHE WALKED IN A LEASH: http://m.rtv.net/97917

A JOURNALIST ARRESTED BY THE POLICE WHEN TRYING TO SAVE DOGS FROM BEING KILLED IN BUCHAREST: http://www.dcnews.ro/2013/09/jurnalista-tvr-arestata-in-timp-ce-incerca-sa-ia-niste-caini-la-adapost/

Being aware of the connection between animal abuse and human abuse is vital in order to protect each individual and to see the greater picture of threats and how to prevent them. I hope!

Both petitions signed.
Thanks so much, Desanka, for spreading the word about the fate of stray animals! You've been doing such a great job!
Although horrified by both Grivita's injuries and the culprit's cold-heartedness, simultaneously I am so relieved and happy to see that not only has this girl survived, but she has also been given a new lease on life! May herself and her rescuers be blessed.
