Petra; The dog who once turned to stone was afraid of human touch, but now demands belly rubs

A 5 years old dog was so sick that she literally turned to stone and when the rescue organization came to take him off from the streets of Athens, Greece; the dog made it impossible to approach her.  The rescue organization was only made aware of this dog’s plight after a woman posted a photo of this poor dog on Facebook.

The dog was so scared of humans that she would run away at the mere sight of them but rescuers were finally able to get her.

Her rescuers later named her Petra, which means “Stone” in the Greek language. The dog needed treatment for many health problems like raging mange and infection of body swarmed with bugs.

Save a Greek Stray shelter’s Valia Orfanidou told media that, “I don’t think that she had ever been touch by a human before in her life. I strongly believe, no one ever came close to her. I tried to pet her before she even enjoyed it. She did not understand as to what petting truly was. However, after a couple of months, she started asking for it and now she like any other dog demands and loves a good belly rub.”

Now Petra is healthy and ready to receive all the love in the world. She is also waiting to find her forever home.
