No dog should suffer at the unscrupulous hands of some people, but there is a reality in between that reminds us that some human beings are insensitive and have a great capacity to hurt the most vulnerable.
This time we tell the story of a puppy that managed to avoid a tragic end, thanks to the intervention of a rescue group that responded to a call to save another abandoned puppy.
The rescue team heard the crying.
It all started when Takis Shelter, a passionate animal lover, approached a humble community. This still-unidentified, to help a puppy in terrible conditions, a few months old, wandering the streets completely disoriented begging for a gesture of love.
Fortunately, his misery came to an end thanks to the intervention of the rescuers, who were far from imagining that their rescue mission would be twofold.
The dog was completely wet and very scared.
Takis and his assistant heard the cry of a second puppy before they decided to track down where it came from. To their surprise, they found a puppy inside a huge blue barrel, he was completely scared and very wet, it had rained a lot the day before.
Whoever abandoned it had clear intentions that it would drown in the barrel. Fortunately, it had holes that allowed the water to not stagnate, giving the helpless puppy a chance to survive.
He was weak and on the verge of canine hypothermia.
However, he was very weak and in shock, and of course, he had been through so much in such a short time. Takis asked his assistant to wear gloves in case the dog attacked, understandably he struggled against his rescuer and bit off his gloves.
With great care, he managed to remove it and transfer it to the cage where the first rescued puppy was. They only had one cage and had to share, fortunately, neither puppy lunged at the other.
The two puppies were confused and very frightened.
Both dogs were transferred to the shelter. The first rescued puppy gave in more easily to the care of his rescuers, the second, on the other hand, refused to leave the corner.
From then on, his caregivers gave him words of encouragement and affection to then help alleviate his traumatized past.
The puppies were named Alpha and Zeta.
Takis and his team did not give up. They had faith that they could help the puppy and gain his trust. It took a long time, but in the end, the effort was worth it.
The abandoned puppy in the barrel trusted the humans and began to respond to every gesture of love. Surprisingly, he was also accompanied by his rescue partner, with whom he shared a blanket and they snuggled for the rest of the day.
Now, this adorable furry couple not only enjoys caring for their rescuers, but they have each other. We are so grateful to Takis and his entire team for this incredible mission.
There is still a lot to do, but we trust that every day more will join this noble cause. So please share this story in your networks and let’s continue to strive for a world free of animal abuse.
