Do you remember Natividad, the dog starved to death for art in 2008? This is about to happen again, not in Costa Rica but in Romania, and not in the name of art but because these dogs don't bring an income.
15 km away from Baia Mare, in Northern Romania, a house had been put up for sale. In the meantime, its owners moved in an apartment, leaving 6 Rottweilers behind iron bars. The dogs, between 6 months and 3 years old, were meant to bring an extra income to the family. But it didn't happen as it was expected, so in this context no dogs sale means no money which means no food for the dogs.
What makes them different from other abandoned dogs is the fact that they are still closed in iron cages, not being able to search for food or be fed by someone else. The owners pass by two times a week, showing the house to potential buyers. These are the only times when the dogs get small portions of food and water, meant to keep them alive. And every time the owners pass by, one adult dog or the 3 puppies are freed from their cages for the next few days.
The photos are taken from inside a neighbor's yard, the only place where one could get in to feed the "lucky" dog freed from its cage.
The owners were suggested to give away the dogs but they refused, saying they invested a lot in them and the dogs are only for sale. But obviously, no one is buying them because they are underweight and they aren't anymore small pups.
This is not only an awareness message, but also a call for help. There must be a way to take these dogs out of that property and there surely are some loving families who could take care of them.
If anyone can help, please get in touch.
