A puppy lay in a corner with no hope of surviving the critical situation it faced. His case touched the hearts of thousands of people, no animal deserves to suffer like this.
When we think of our dogs, we think of all the love we gladly give them. Every meal, every pat on the head, every moment we play with them is another opportunity to rejoice in that love .
But the dog in this story had never had the opportunity to feel loved . However, with a stroke of luck, all that was about to change.
His full story is unknown. What volunteers from the Philippine Animal Rescue Team believe, since he understood some of the people’s orders, is that he once belonged to someone .
What happened after that is a mystery. He was found in a pile of rubbish with ants crawling on his bare skin from a major skin disease. He smelled really bad from the inside out.
The poor little dog was suffering from advanced mange, he lost most of his hair and, as his skin was exposed, it hurt him to walk in the sunlight.
The poor little dog was so malnourished that he was just bones, so if he was lying on the ground, he was in a lot of pain. He felt very weak, he was tired.
He found a shady spot on a pile of rubbish and there, in that miserable spot, he waited for his time to come . However, a group of volunteers decided to change this scenario completely.
In this video you can see how two rescue volunteers from the Philippines saved the puppy from an uncertain fate:
Rescuers refused to let him go . They took him to the vet and treated him for distemper and mange. His malnutrition was also addressed. He received intravenous fluids and a high-calorie diet.
The Philippines Animal Rescue Team will do their best to keep the dog comfortable as he begins to heal. Nothing is certain for this dog , now named Chief.
It is not possible to guarantee that he will survive, what is certain is that he lived his last days full of love and all the attention that the circumstances denied him.
It is worth every effort they are making to give him a real chance to fight, despite everything he did want to change his destiny. The puppy had resigned himself because no one came to help him , he could not find a way out of his pain.
Although his condition was critical, they just had to wait for him to respond to medical treatment and above all, the love he was finally receiving.
It is always comforting to know that, no matter how bad the forecasts are, there are people who are willing to dedicate until the last moment to save the life of a little animal in distress .
For the magic to happen, it only takes a lot of love and an iron will to live on the part of the little animal and we hope that Chief has it to spare , so that he can rise above adversity and enjoy a second chance.
Stories like this inspire others to take the initiative to help other animals, no matter how dire the circumstances may seem. Luckily, this little dog found guardian angels who did their best to change his fate.
It is always worth alleviating the suffering of these innocent and vulnerable beings, in zoorprendente we will not tire of defending the rights of animals, and raising our voices to fight against unfair treatment.
