A few months ago, the Lega Del Cane Trani rescue teams encountered one of the saddest cases they have ever encountered. A man was driving between Trani and Barletta in Italy and came across something very suspicious.
On the shoulder of the road was a broken suitcase and just inches away a dog just bone. The way the suitcase had been torn gave a clear idea of the terrible situation this furry fellow had faced.
“How is it possible that someone would do something like that to a defenseless being?”, one user lamented on the networks.
Everything seemed to indicate that they had put him inside that folder to be thrown and eliminated. Somehow he managed to get out of there, but he looked completely exhausted and drained of strength.
The man who found him called the rescue team. And they immediately took him into their care. The boy’s situation was very difficult.
He had many stomach problems. And giving him much needed treatment seemed an impossible task, since he didn’t trust any human being.
“His test results are really dramatic. There is anemia, hyperparathyroidism, liver failure, necrosis in some tissues. His fatty enteric apparatus is full of stones and foreign hides”, a spokesman for the Foundation explained.
Many would have given up on such a difficult case, but this poor furry one deserved a chance to lead a happy life.
“Those who found him and saved him are angels”, an internet user thanked.
For weeks he was extremely weak, but as the days passed he regained the strength to stand up and was able to eat on his own.
He was given the name Kei and, despite his critical health, the biggest challenge he therefore had to face was to regain his trust in humans.
“We don’t know if he is an inexperienced puppy or if his fear is due to all that he has suffered”, said one of the rescuers.
Little by little, he has allowed himself to trust a little more in humans. He seems to understand that he is getting stronger and stronger, and all thanks to the care of the vets.
It’s a relief to know that the puppy received all the help he needed after facing such a painful past.
“Whoever adopts Kei will take a dog that will have to rebuild physically and psychologically. It’s a big commitment”, said one of the rescuers.
No living being deserves to be locked up and left on his own in the middle of nowhere. Kei still has a long way to go and we, therefore, hope that he can be adopted by a wonderful family.
We raise our voices against the unfair treatment this puppy received. Those responsible for such a heinous act must pay for their actions.
