THREE months have gone by since Jordi Rios adopted Moises, the dog that arrived in Mijas still jammed in the front of the lorry that hit him near Sevilla.
Rios, a Mijas policeman who was on patrol and followed events over his radio when the dog was found, decided to adopt Moises instantly and has been overwhelmed by the help received ever since.
The accident, and subsequent 150-kilometre journey, left the eight-year-old with bumps and bruises and a front leg fractured in various places.
Two operations followed, and a number of casts and metal pins were needed to try and reset the leg, which Rios says is still not completely healed.
Yet the kind-hearted policeman and his new pet have not had to fight alone as help has come from near and far.
Moises’s story was shared more than 12,800 times on Facebook, bringing in donations not only from friends, family and colleagues but also from strangers and even Royal Canin dog food brand, which donated food specially formulated to strengthen joints to try and help.
Two vets from Torremolinos also got in touch, and are currently providing treatment in an attempt to help Moises finally recover from his ordeal.
