Puppy Flung off Bridge in Sarajevo, Bosnia

12092513_1720431424857520_1562241327_nThis is Precious. Two days ago, her rescuer, Fahrudin Caki Bravo, told us:

12112346_1721474034753259_1876745766829301075_nThis innocent soul is only 4 months old, but she has already had a horrible destiny so far… Some monster from Sarajevo threw her of a bridge, 7-8 meters high. She weighs only 5 kilos… The police was informed as this action was witnessed but the monster ran off and nobody could find him or this baby. Finally a lady found the puppy crawling down the street, in the middle of the pouring rain… Many people just walked by her while she was dragging the back of her body down the wet concrete. She was brought to the vet and received first aid and they also did an X-ray… She has a complicated back injury… Please help me save her. Her debt at the moment is 105e for boarding and 30e for the X-ray. She will also need Rimadil and diapers…. I`m so disgusted by all this that I don`t know what to write anymore….

The bridge….

The vet in Sarajevo told Caki that she needs an MRI which is not available in Bosnia. He drove her to Split, where she received a full examination.

In Caki’s car, on the way to getting help….

The kind vet refused to charge, saying this was her contribution to the dogs of Sarajevo. However, the sad news is that Precious has a spinal injury which needs immediate operation, which can be done in Zagreb. Caki is driving her to Zagreb, and she’ll be operated on tomorrow. The cost for the operation will be around 700 or 800 euros.

If you can help, we have set up a YouCaring:

10310114_679331748768764_2399252418801957405_nCaki was one of the people helping the most in the terrible floods of 2014, spending his days saving lives. When the dog killers descended on Sarajevo to ‘clean the streets’ in anticipation of the Popes visit he spent hours trying to find his local furry friends. The strays he had loved, fed and cared for over months or years, many lives were lost but he was there to coax the lucky ones out from their hiding places.

He has 39 rescues in pension and struggles terribly to raise the funds necessary to keep them safe off the streets and away from the dog catchers. Precious’s additional costs will break him.  We are hoping people will step up and help – every amount makes a difference, no matter how small. Every euro makes a difference.
