He was found traumatised and having difficulty breathing after he crawled into a brick-built hollow to protect himself when the wildfires began.

Animal rescue volunteer, Artemis K. was in the area searching with others when she came across the fragile pooch and lured him out with dog food…
Although it did take her a couple of hours to convince him to leave his shelter.
“I saw there was something like an [outdoor] oven, and I figured if anything were alive, it would be in there.

It’s so sad because we haven’t been able to find an owner – unfortunately, the owner may have died in the fire. I am soon heading back to Mati to look for more animals that might have survived,” Artemis said.

Diana Topali, who is offering Loukoumaki foster care says, “even its eyelashes are burnt, I wonder how this dog survived.”
Despite appearing weak, the dog extraordinarily was said to be in good health.
