Jara was a stray dog living on a mountain road that runs right through an area plagued by leg-hold traps and wire snares, cruel devices that lazy hunters use for catching wild animals to eat. She stepped in a trap and it slowly amputated her toes. It took us a few days to catch her, because she is very wary of strangers, and by the time we did it was too late.
Thankfully, our vet was able to save most of the foot, and if you see Jara walking around one our gardens, you’d never know she was so badly maimed. Jara is a very wary girl still. She won’t let anyone touch her yet, and always keeps her distance, even at feeding time. But we’ll make progress with her. Jara won’t get adopted anytime soon, but she’s content, she’s safe, and she’s healthy in our care. Please think about sponsoring this shy girl!
