A pet rescue organization called Howl Of A Dog met a stray puppy in a Romanian town when they sought him out for a sterilization day.
The dog noticed these people coming, so he voluntarily approached them and decided to call him Remy. He ran to the rescuers, wagging his tail and seeking attention.
This lovely dog cannot ignore the presence of volunteers who came to help.
They immediately noticed that the young dog had a nose scar. According to Howl Of A Dog, the muzzle burn was the result of cruel superstition among the people of this town.
Apparently, they believe that if they do this on a dog’s nose by putting a red-hot iron on it, they would avoid suffering from distemper.
Remy’s nose injury is the result of an outrageous belief in some villages in Romania.
What an outrageous belief! Despite the terrible thing about this situation, Remy seemed to have successfully survived this abuse, and many others that seem to be quite common in the locality.
The special thing Remy has always been with his rescuers and his successful rehab is documented in this video.
Most dogs in rural areas of Romania are considered to guard dogs or protective “tools”. For some reason the first responders were unaware, Remy’s family ignored him and let him defend himself, effectively turning him into a stray dog.
Then Remy roamed the city and slept outside a small grocery store, where a friendly merchant fed him every day.
Remy received veterinary care as well as love and food.
As this care was not enough to keep the animal well, the volunteers set out to find a home for the dog.
Despite Remy’s friendly disposition, the rescue could not find anyone in the village to adopt him.
Every day Howl Of A Dog was in town, Remy ran to them happily, greeting them.
It’s like waiting for someone. It’s as if, for the first time in his life, someone is noticing and would take him home.
It was hard for rescuers to understand how anyone had denied such a special and loving dog a second chance.
Instead of leaving the sweet dog on the streets, they decided to take it with them. Remy has been fortunately placed in a temporary home until the time comes for him to enjoy a family that decides to keep him forever.
Now Remy is a very different dog who lives happily in her foster home!
A little love and the necessary attention were the perfect ingredients for this little one, who never failed to trust, to receive a ticket to happiness.
