A woman decides to help him (Video)
Unfortunately it seems that, many people would really like to make their pets colorful, because they think that it would look so cute on them. One day, some activists were informed that there was a dog dyed bright red. They found the poor animal at a refugee camp with his owner in Shcimatari, Greece. They immediately realized that they had to do something. The man bought her from the sellers in Omonia for 150 euros (£135) without realizing how harmful the paint could be for the dog. The man claimed that he bought the poor dog due to the fact that he liked the color of her fur. He thought that it looked funny and unique.
Because the activists were afraid that the dog had maybe developed some respiratory problems due to the paint they demanded to take the pup with them. The activists took away the adorable dog, which was really friendly and playful and they nicknamed her “Scarlet”. After that, they took her to the vet in order to see if the paint had caused any damage to her skin and fur. After some examination, vets confirmed that the paint that had been used to dye Scarlet red, it was hair dye. Thankfully, they also said that the hair dye hadn’t have caused any harm to her fur. The activists took Scarlet for a bath in order to clean her fur from the hair dye. This was the first one of the many that would follow, but Scarlet knew that this was for her own good. She was enjoying her bath and she seemed to be really happy.
A big amount of the hair dye had come off
After the bath, a big amount of the hair dye had come off. However, Scarlet would need many more baths in order to regain the color that her fur was before the hair dye. The activists took her to a shelter where they would continue the baths and keep on taking care of that sweet little girl. It was this time that the team realized that it was time to put Scarlet up for adoption. After many baths the hair dye started to fade out and Scarlet’s fur was looking a lot better. Slowly, Scarlet regains her real color, which is a lovely white. Her new family loves her and takes good care of her. Scarlet is now a happy dog, living a good life. Watch the video, Maria Vazoura, the volunteer that found the pup decided to make the story public through social media.
As it seems, it took time for Scarlet to regain her true color but fortunately her story had a happy ending. She is now adapting into her new home and she seems to be really energetic and happy!
