Oct 2010 — In July 2010, the dog we now call Vressí (which means “hey you”) fell into the hands of a goatherd who is known for neglecting his animals. Vressi was originally owned by another local shepherd who used him to drive cattle, but this shepherd died unexpectedly in the summer and the dog was inherited by the goatherd. Thus Vressi had to adjust to living on a chain all day, all alone, hardly noticed by the passing traffic. During the high season, tourists would stop at the sight of the poor dog and share with him something to eat or drink. Vressi welcomes the daily visits from a volunteer. He has been wormed and vaccinated and is currently under the watchful eye of the local animal society.
