Amira A heart warming tale about a beautiful podenca. Bev tells her story.
Introducing Amira who came from a Perrera. At first she was reserved by a Spanish association but she escaped the next day and lived wild in the campo for weeks. Someone managed to catch her and they wouldn't take her back so the perrera contacted me and asked if I would take her.
This Podenca is so terrified of life, of everything and to begin with we had to carry her to her water bowl and food bowl to take her outside. Her fear had frozen Amira like a statue.
To begin we gave her space and even our dogs seemed to understand she needed to be left alone. Gradually she then began to seek support in their company and we saw tiny improvements.
Amira has had a long journey in her rehabilitation and still a way to go but yesterday (14/8/13)I witnessed such a special moment. She picked up a toy and was so playful with it; for so many it's something we take for granted, for Amira a milestone.
The physical injuries and illness we can help and see it happening, the mental scars are so much harder to heal. I cannot even begin to imagine what cruelty this Podenca has suffered, to shut down and not want to engage with the world.
There is hope for Amira we see little glimpses of her personality shining through and in time she will believe that life is worth living.'
