This sweet little dog has suffered so much. I hope she gets her second chance and that the karma bus is aiming for her torturer.

Thanks Echo,
This has really upset me, I can't believe a human being can do such a cruel act and still gets the to be called "human" by an apparently uncaring society. No laws to protect animals from cruelty? Where the heck are these people? - still in the Stone Age, I gather. I'm praying for that animal, may she heal well and only see the humane side of human beings for the rest of her leg-less life.

I am so glad that Mima has a new wonderful caretaker that she so deserves! I hope between the petition and the media exposure of this horrible animal abuse-it will help to change Bulgaria's animal abuse laws. I also hope that the abuse that Mima suffered comes back times 10 to her abuser. I hope Mima's life is pain free and full of love! Mima's big sad eyes just break my heart!

Such good news for Mima. It looks like she will have prosthetics so that she can one day walk again and has a loving new home and they are not going to put her down.

The world has really fallen in love Mima and her terrible tragedy will hopfully help introduce animal protection laws in Bulgaria.

And it looks like I'm finally going to have to open a PayPal account so that I may donate for Mima. Ever little bit helps.

Thank you Echo for getting this into a news story for this important creature so WAY IMPORTANT!!!

Thank you Charles for the forward, but I did sign this petition awhile back and went to check #'s 11,846 I think, not sure...

Way important people please take a peek and have to go down the page at site to sign the petition is you have not done so.

This just totally hurts my heart that MAN can be so cruel and heartless! Appalling!!!

Dear Mimi may you have a person that gives you a ton of love and kisses and be treasured for the special animal that you are.

Noted with tears!!!

what a coward to do such a horrible thing to an innocent pup he can thank god that he is not my neighbour,he would never do any thing like that again,for the simple reason that he would not be able to.

This has really made me believe in Easter Miracles!!! This story actually made me sick!!! This poor little girl needs a safe and loving home and I can just see how many people would take her. Beautiful brave little girl.
Hey Mike - I'm with you!!! This sicko would find out just how many people have an "axe to grind" - what poetic justice that would be!!!

Mima is in my thoughts and prayers! She is such a sweetheart! I am so glad she has such a wonderful lady to take care of her now! I had already signed the petition, I checked and made sure. I want to donate but I don't know exactly how to do it....??? TY, Echo...please keep us updated!

I am profoundly relieved to read that sweet, innocent Mima is now living with another human - well away from the murderously dangerous neighbour of her original human guardian, I hope!

I hope that the sadist who did this to a dear, innocent, helpless animal finds himself pounced upon one dark night, by a hooded gang determined to dispense "rough justice". I am aware that revenge, hatred and anger is "the wrong" response, but praying for these torturers, sadists and abusers just does not achieve anything positive! Most of them just go on to commit other similar, or even worse, crimes! It seems to me that "sending light" to people like this scum is just a waste of time and effort. Any thoughts on this, anyone?

Thanks Echo!!! And thanks to all who have helped and donated. I'm hoping to get an estimate from Violeta, Mima's new mom on approx. cost of all her treatment very soon. By then I'll adjust the ChipIn with a target amount and we'll be networking it full forced. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!!! xxxx

Does anyone know whatever happened to the a'hole who did this to Mima? Can anyone report how she is doing now, if she had surgery to get new legs or what?

I see the total collected was over 8200 dollars, BUT there was question about it going to Mima's caretaker and whether she was authorized . . . That was last year. Does anyone know anything more?
