When we choose to adopt a pet, we are making a lifelong commitment, and there are no exceptions to this responsibility. Unfortunately, not all dog owners seem to fully grasp this obligation. In a distressing case, the owner of a dog who had suffered significant injuries and had gone blind felt that he was no longer worthy of a home. By the time the dog was discovered, he had become severely debilitated due to prolonged starvation and dehydration.
The miserable pup was found laying in the mud, no longer “deserving” of a roof over his head. He was dehydrated, hungry, and weak. This is where the dog opted to spend his final days. He had accepted that his life was ended since the one person he genuinely loved had abandoned him.
Rescuers found in time to save him! They had to help him into their vehicle since he was too weak to stand. It was time to take this dog to the vet and get him checked out! The little youngster was extremely patient on his way over. He was afraid, but he knew these kind folks would rush to his help. He now recognized that his death didn’t have to happen so quickly.
According to the vet, the dog’s health had worsened to the point of starvation. He was anemic to the point of requiring numerous blood transfusions. While the doggie warrior was being treated, the rescuers made as many phone calls as they could. They also advertised for a foster home on Facebook. This poor guy should not have to wait any longer than necessary at the vet’s office. He had to experience what it felt like to be loved in a home!
The following afternoon, the rescuers received a call from a compassionate woman with experience caring for blind animals. She expressed her desire to offer the dog a safe haven in her home for his recovery, and it was a perfect match. After receiving a clean bill of health from the vet, the pup met his new foster mom, and it was an instant bond.
The dog, who had once resigned himself to a bleak fate, is now thriving. What’s more, he has been declared a “foster failure” because his foster mom can’t imagine a better home for him. This endearing young dog charms everyone he meets, and his blindness is no hindrance to his wonderful nature. Despite all the challenges, it’s heartening to know that this pup has found his happily ever after.
Thank you to his new mom, the rescuers, and the vet staff!
