A dog has been found in an outdoor oven outside a house in Mati, a sea side town in Greece, where it took refuge to escape being killed by the wild fire that devastated that area couple of weeks ago.
The dog is now recovering in a new home after viral video shows moments it was recovered by animal rescue volunteer.
The 4-year-old poodle mix was found hiding in an outdoor oven outside of a home that was destroyed by the fire, which razed the seaside town of Mati on July 23.
A video recorded by animal rescue volunteer Artemis Kyriakopoulou captured the moment she found the dog hiding in an outdoor oven.
The dog, dubbed Loukoumakis by its foster caretaker, is believed to have been on its own for a while prior to the fire. Veterinarians said the canine appears to have signs of previous abuse.
The Dog’s Voice rescue group, which had been caring for Loukoumakis, said a woman with experience caring for former stray animals is expected to sign adoption papers for the canine on Thursday.
