Imagine being so hungry that you can’t even remember what it was like to eat a meal. Your stomach beyond emptiness, your body breaking. For this dog, finding food was almost impossible. And the thinner he got, the weaker he became. With advanced malnutrition, their organs began to fail. He didn’t have the strength to do much, and every bone in his body could be seen through his skin.
He walked in the mud because being on any hard surface hurt him. Finally, by God’s grace, good-hearted people saw the dog and wanted to help. He walked over to them, practically begging to be saved. The dog, thin and afraid, was not used to the kindness that cringed as they tried to touch him.
Besides starving, he had scabies and was losing his hair. He had sores on his body and his skin was getting scaly and sore.
He was not only afraid of being touched, he was too pained to feel any contact. His new friends knew he didn’t have much time to live if they didn’t intervene. They picked him up carefully and took him to the nearest clinic.
He was scared, but his rescuers believed he was relieved too. Dogs are smart, and he is no exception. He realized that he was finally safe.
Finally, the emaciated dog ate a large meal. Knowing that their body might not respond well to so much food, they fed it slowly several times a day. Too much food too fast would make him very sick.
One of the kind strangers decided to adopt him permanently.
Your new father has given you daily showers using medicated shampoo to treat your scabies. He also shaved all the hair so that he could treat the infected wounds properly. He is already much better.
The dog has a way to go, but now he has a house and will never go hungry again. He even likes to be touched. He also gained weight constantly! Thanks to the kindness of animal lovers, this dog will have a happy life.
