Our pets rely on us to take care of them. While they bring us so much joy, they need us to provide stability. It is our job to comfort them, take them for medical care, and make sure they are well-fed and happy. Sadly, not all dog owners understand this concept. When the dog in this story became a nuisance to his owner, he was dumped on the street.

The dog sat alone waiting for someone to notice him. So many people had passed him by and didn’t care enough to help. He was riddled with mange and had lost most of his fur. He was so malnourished that sitting up straight was a challenge. He was weak and disoriented.

A kind woman finally saw the dog and called a local rescuer who saves animals in her spare time. The rescuer raced over. She picked the dog up and put him inside a box in her car. She wanted to keep him nice and warm. Then, they drove straight to the vet.

The vet diagnosed the dog with mange as well as anemia. They were confident he’d get much better soon so long as he received adequate care. The local rescuer vowed to give him medicated baths, frequent high-calorie meals, and medications to address his other issues.

It took a little while but with diligence and lots of love, the former “street dog” that was unwanted, and left on the roadside like garbage, made a full recovery. Wait until you see what he looks like now– in the video below! His fur grew back in, thick and shiny. He’s so happy now!

This story is proof that there’s no such thing as a broken dog. Every animal deserves love. And giving up on your pet is NEVER okay! We are so grateful for every animal rescuer out there. Their jobs are tremendously hard. Let’s share this story in their honor!
