It is sad to see that many people still believe that the old saying that dogs go away to lick their wounds should be applied on practical terms, meaning that their pets do not need (or deserve) any kind of veterinary attention. if they cure by themselves, all the better; if they die trying, well after all they are animals, are not they?
They also think that old animals, with their fragile healths, are a load and therefore the best thing to do is to abandon them as soon as they become sick. Let's hope that Fate will pay them back in the same currency, when they grow old and fragile and their loving children, having learned from their example, stow them away in the cheapest asylum they can find, never to visit them again.
Preciosa's leg is beyond repair, but she manages pretty well to walk, being altoghether a very healthy dog who now awaits for a family that will compensate her injuries with loads of affection.
