A dog rescuer spotted this poor soul wandering the streets on his own. Someone had cruelly cut off his left front paw. Because he went without medical care, his entire leg became infected. It was painful and swollen. His leg was necrotic and needed immediate attention.
Nong, a kind woman, cried when she saw the poor pup. She had to call for help. Thankfully she knew of a local rescue group who could come and pick him up. The rescue group came quickly and took the dog to the vet hospital where he was scheduled for emergency surgery. Even though he was safe, he was still scared. He didn’t know who to trust.
After surgery, the doggy warrior recovered physically but his soul still needed time to heal. As days went on, his health improved as well as his spirits. It took the dog time to realize the humans that now surrounded him only had good intentions. His abuser had forever left him traumatized but with love and affection, he began to see that most humans are kindhearted.
The brave dog spent time at the vet clinic accepting his new body. He learned to walk easily on three legs and day-by-day, his entire demeanor changed. For the first time in his life, the deserving dog was happy! He had consistent meals, lots of pets, and people who only wanted to give him love!
A family had heard about his story and reached out to the rescue group and vet clinic. They wanted to give him a forever home. Before long, the pup learned what “dog life” was truly about. He now had a nice home, loving people to spoil him, and lots of toys to play with.
This story, while unique to this pup, continues to play out amongst homeless animals. Many face animal cruelty and are callously dumped. Some dogs are abused while already living on the streets. It’s a problem we cannot ignore. Let’s do our best to pray for these animals and rescuers– and always support rescue groups and shelters. Every life is worth saving!
