The dog lies flat at the door step. He barely moves. In fact he has hardly moved at all during the last 24 hours, when the police took him out from the house, the scene of a heinous crime. His owners were murdered in their home.
Burglars had broken in, tied and suffocated with pillows the 81-year-old man and his 79-year-old sister in Elefsina, a town 50 km west from Athens. It took some days until the nephew found out that his uncle and aunt were murdered and died a painful death.
For 3-4 days the dog, probably as old as his owners, was inside the house. Grieving. Without food or water. Unable to help, unable to cope with the situation.
Now, the man’s and woman’s best friend, is grieving at the door step. Occasionally he stand up and check the house doors… But mainly he lies down and sighs…
Some animal loving neighbors tried to feed him but he hardly ate a bit. And even then, he ate, without standing on his feet.
As if the power to stand up has abandonded his body together with the loving caress of his owners.
Now the neighbors have asked the help of animal welfare societies….

unfortunately there is a dramatic increase in criminality since a couple of years. Children are deprived from mobiles and a couple of Euros, elderly of a cross hanging around their neck. Not to mention burglaries at homes. And yes, criminals don’t step back from murdiring for a couple of ‘nothings’. It’s an awful situation.
New update! The doggie has been transfered to the strays protection shelter at Koropi, Athens! Ms. Elina Mpounia has kindly provided the information! Here’s what she had to say:
Elina Mpounia Παιδια το σκυλακι βρισκεται στη Φιλοζωικη Κορωπιου, ειναι γερακος, μελαγχολικος κ ευχομαστε ολοι να βρεθει πολυ ευαισθητοποιημενη οικογενεια για να του χαρισει την αγαπη που του στερηθηκε…
Elina Mpounia Guys the dog is now at Koropi stray protection shelter, he is old, melancholic and we hope that a very sensitive family can offer him the love he has been deprived of…
Yes, Diane, Thanks for the information! I read also that several people have shown interest for him even to foster or even adopt him. He is too old and too hurt, needs a real home.
