Sadly, many hunters in Greece treat their dog hunting partners simply as tools using them when needed and tossing them aside once they have no more use for them. One particular dog was abandoned on a mountain and left tied to a tree at night so he couldn’t follow his owner back home. But his rescuer was on the way.

The ironically named “Tool” didn’t react when approached, but it wasn’t until the next day in the light that they saw how disoriented and neglected that he truly was. The loyal companion didn’t understand how or why it had come to this.

A visit to the vet revealed not only a fracture in his front leg but a microchip with all of his owner’s information. The Orphan Pet was able to contact them and found out they had given the dog up to another hunter years prior, and this person left the dog tied to a tree for someone else to find once the nine-year-old boy started limping.

But the transformation of Tool is startling. Now in a forever home with his mom, Lone, he’s adored while living the best life! “I love him so much it hurts,” she said. His full story in the video below is worth the watch, and it just goes to show that all some dogs need is a chance.
