Olga was found roaming the streets, having difficulty walking because of a severe infection around her neck area.
When she was a puppy, some cruel person tied a makeshift harness around her, using plastic and then released her on the streets. As Olga grew, she underwent excruciating pain as her skin and muscles grew around the tight plastic harness.
PAWS Shelter Veterinarian Dr. Wilford Almoro performed the surgery to remove the infected contraption.
Now, Olga's face doesn't show a trace of the misery that she once went through. The only trace left are the scars left by the plastic harness that she outgrew but even this has been covered by her lush black fur.
Olga is waiting to be adopted at the PAWS Animal Rehabilitation Center .
Everyday, PAWS rescues and rehabilitates dogs like Olga until they are ready to be put up for adoption.
