Introducing Ollie, a homeless canine saved in Greece that adores every individual he encounters. The juvenile dog resided with a group of strays near the coast in a Greek town when Valia, from the Orphan Pet organization, first spotted him. He hurried towards her with a wide smile on his face and his tail wagging excitedly.
Valia had been capturing footage of the pack, but Ollie immediately caught her attention. Her presumption was that Ollie had been abandoned recently, and she could perceive that he was content to have found the company of dogs but was still adjusting to living among them. She noticed “the birth of a stray.”
Ollie was at a critical juncture in his life, where his fate could have gone in either direction. Valia stated that it’s during that decisive moment when dogs are most vulnerable. For Ollie, he still had faith in the benevolence of people and perceived every unfamiliar person as a “potential friend.”
He became attached to Valia, but she had already made up her mind to save him. Naturally, a dog as charming as Ollie was adopted. “Yes, it was difficult to say goodbye to him, but there are millions of homeless dogs in Greece and…you know the rest,” Valia stated. Ollie now resides in the Netherlands, bringing happiness to the individuals in his life there. And, without a doubt, to strangers as well.
