When rescuers in Turkey finally got to Pascal the puppy, he was so stiff that he looked like a statue. But he wasn’t frozen with fear; a group of cruel kids tried to drown the harmless, famished pup in glue before dragging him through the mud.

They then left Pascal there to die as the glue became harder and harder, hindering his movement. He was losing blood supply to one of his ears, since the glue was hardened so tightly onto his skin. He was also having trouble breathing and wouldn’t have survived much longer if it weren’t for rescuers.

As soon as they got him back to He’ART of Rescue’s clinic, they began shaving off all of the matted fur that was glued together. Unfortunately, the glue managed to soak through all of his fur, so they had no choice but to shave him down to his skin. His skin was extremely damaged from the chemicals from the glue, so they gave him medicated baths to help relieve the pain.

Thankfully, his skin infection and emaciated little body were the worst of his problems. He was an otherwise very healthy normal puppy. Now it was time for little Pascal to heal.

Since Pascal was completely traumatized by these kids, he was hesitant about trusting people. But as time went on, he understood that not everyone was there to hurt him. Staff showered him with love, and he finally began to heal from the inside out.

As he began to heal, so did his body. His fur started to grow back, and he looked like a completely different dog. Once he was healthy enough, the vet discharged him and he went to live with a foster.

Soon after, he was adopted by a loving family in Spain! He now has a new doggy sibling and is enjoying his new life!
