Any dog is the most loving and kind being that exists. It is not strange that many of these four-legged angels, seeing other furry companions in trouble, even if they do not even know them, do whatever it takes to save their lives.
That is why without fear of being wrong we can say that we really do not deserve dogs!
For that same reason, animal abandonment is perhaps one of the most evil and cowardly acts. But despite the enormous efforts of activists and animal rights activists to punish them with the harshness of the law, sadly we continue to witness how much these little souls suffer.
One day they had a family, and today they wander adrift in loneliness and helplessness.
It was the sad episode witnessed by a hunter from Luçon, in Vendée, France, when he was on his way back with his three dogs, like every Sunday, through a wooded area.
Suddenly, one of his furry ones behaved totally out of the ordinary.
The amazing dog wanted to warn you of something life or death
In this regard, the man reported:
“I came back from hunting down a road I don’t often take. When my dog barked in a very unusual way, and really desperate, I knew he had to stop me immediately.
The wily hound clearly knew another canine companion was in trouble
“When he does that, there is something,” said the hunter.
And truly, the clever little dog was not wrong. A little further, in the middle of nowhere, in the middle of the forest, was a poor dog, tied to a tree with an iron chain.
His gaze begged for mercy
“I was skinny, I had a bowl but it was empty, and I was scared of Isia, Isis and Flipper, my three dogs. He was shaking, you could tell he was scared. But he didn’t move, he was very nice, not aggressive », said Fréderic, the hunter.
The poor dog had been tied to the tree for several days, and he was very scared, so offering him help was not an easy task.
The hunter realized that the fact that it would not even allow itself to be touched meant that it had been the victim of repeated mistreatment at the hands of its previous owners.
His devastating gaze spoke of how hard life had been with him.
Poor little one! Our hearts wrinkle just thinking about what he had to suffer in the past and what he lived all those days tied up, without food, without water, as if he were a criminal.
His little eyes revealed that he had already forgiven, but his fear was much stronger.
It was then that the man, without knowing how else to help him -because getting close was impossible-, went to the Town Hall.
Specialized personnel went to the forest and took the little animal to the municipal kennel, where euthanasia would surely await it. But luckily, everything changed when volunteers from the animal organization SPA came to her rescue.
“But the person who did that doesn’t like animals,” Frédéric lamented. “We don’t do that to a dog, it just doesn’t happen.”
Now the dog is in the SPA facilities, where they are feeding him, so that he regains his weight and hydrates.
Unfortunately, his rescuer could not take care of the puppy, since he already had three. But we hope that with luck, he will find a home where they truly love him, and who take care of erasing all his past fears with dedication and patience.
It is time to remind the world of the serious responsibility that owning a pet entails.
It is much more than including them in the Christmas photo, or to tell friends that we have a dog. It is a special bond that is created when we look into his eyes and promise him that by our side everything will change, that he will never return to the streets, and above all that we will never break his little heart.
The sad case of this puppy who had the terrible luck of having the worst owners should stir consciences, let us forget that they feel, and remember EVERYTHING.
