Kelly Lecoutre did not expect to discover such a scene on November 2, when she was riding with friends in the middle of the vineyards and fields in Vauvert. Suddenly, in the grass, a shapeless black female dog and abandoned. “She was curled up and cadaverous with both her ears cut off“says the young woman, owner of the Del Reyes stable. Kelly immediately gets off her horse and once the stupor has passed, she takes charge of the dog. “We carried her to the stable and then we took her by car to the vet in Gallargues-le-Montueux.” she clarifies.
“I was hated. To get there, you really have to have a big worry. The owner probably cut off his ears to prevent us from finding his trace. Because the animal must have had a microchip .” – Kelly Lecoutre
A dog finally saved
Arrived at the veterinarian, the dog is examined, treated, then followed for 24 hours. Finally, she is out of danger. “She still needs to regain her strength.“says Kelly. Since then, the dog has found a foster family. A nickname has even been given to her.”We named her Hope“. Hope, like hope in English. Quite a symbol.
