The shocking case of a dog abused and ignored by his owner for 7 years. After 7 years in prison without seeing the light of day, he was found by rescuers. They were horrified by the puppy’s condition and after shearing him, his fur weighed 16 kg. The puppy looks totally different now. Lazarus is an 8-year-old puppy and all his life he lived in torment, until a moment when luck smiled on him. Since he was little, he was imprisoned in a barn for 7 years without knowing what the world outside his space was like.
The poor animal was fed by the former owner through a slit 2-3 times a month and had not seen the light of day even once. It is a miracle that he lived so many years and did not die of hunger or loneliness. After so many years of nightmare, the owner’s neighbors learned of the torment to which the poor dog was subjected and decided to call for help to save him. They turned to an animal rescue organization.
It was very difficult for them to enter the barn and make the owner understand that the puppy’s place is not there. Although he ignored him all these years, the owner claimed that he was attached to the puppy only that he had health problems and could not move too well to reach the puppy more often or leave him free. When the volunteers of the organization arrived at the place where the puppy was, they were really shocked and realized that the owner was lying. Lazarus was extremely dirty and the fur on him was huge.
The volunteers cut his hair and were surprised that Lazarus’ fur weighed no less than 16 kilograms. Behind the huge fur he was wearing was actually a very weak and scared puppy. When it was finally brought to light from the place where a nightmare lived, people were surprised by the appearance of the small animal.
The contact with life beyond the wall was difficult for Lazarus because he was barely moving and everything was foreign to him. The first steps taken on the grass by the dog were made with fear because he did not know what he was walking on. It took months for Lazarus to integrate and get used to a world so different from his own, but still the real world he should have lived in from the beginning.
Now he has been adopted by a loving family who treats him like a member of the family and although he has moments when he is afraid, he has managed to overcome his traumas and gain confidence in the new family.
