This Puppy Was Being Eaten Alive By Ticks – They Couldn’t Believe Their Eyes

When a volunteer for Orphan Pet Greece saw this puppy walking around an urban area of Athens, he was shocked.

The dog had clearly been wandering the streets alone for a very long time. Not only did she have a wire embedded around her tail, but her body was covered in thousands of nasty ticks. Her head and ears were encrusted with them.

The tick colony drained her blood to the point where she needed a transfusion.

After her recovery, the team decided to name the sweet pup Blossom. You’ll be pleased to hear Blossom has already found her loving forever home (and she is finally free of ticks).
