Against All Odds
Seville is in Andalusia, with a culture of extreme cruelty to animals.
In what was probably a dispute amongst gypsies they burned down a horse carriage. There were two dogs who were tied up but managed to bite through their ropes and escape. Ronda, a small dog was also tied to the caravan but unable to escape and suffered burns to half her body. The horse had been knifed many times. According to a witness this happened FIVE days before the animals were found by animal rescuers! Ronda is in a very serious condition at a clinic but sadly the horse had to be put down.
UPDATE: I was delighted to hear a few days ago that Ronda continues to improve. How she has come through what she has suffered I have no idea! And how delightful is it to see her looking happy?! She has gained 2 kilos in weight and her sedatives are being decreased little by little. Her character is now showing through and she is very happy and funny.
Ronda, you're an amazing little girl!
