As recalled by Shazreen, the oddly-hued dog was “in tears” as he kept looking for food in a littered plastic bag. Apparently, some miscreants had brutally attacked the poor dog with poisonous green paint. The toxic fumes in the paint made the dog dizzy and sick.

Local animal bodies were outraged when they learned about this issue through Shazreen’s viral post. A volunteer immediately rescued the dog and gave him a cleansing bath. Thankfully, the dog wasn’t fatally exposed to the paint. However, this incident proves that the other homeless dogs in the area are still at risk.
