It is saddening to know that there are plenty of people out there who keep dogs only for the sake of guarding their homes. These owners do not usually consider their dog’s feelings and they would only feed them once or twice a day, then leave them chained outside their doors. What’s worse, these poor dogs never receive the love that they deserve from their so-called owners.
With countless pups that find themselves in this ʜᴇᴀʀᴛʙʀᴇᴀᴋɪɴɢ situation, it is just impossible for the ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇ organizations to sᴀᴠᴇ them all. But at least they try! Fortunately, this adorable Fox Terrier is among those dogswho got a second chance, thanks to the efforts of some big-hearted guys.
A ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇ organization called LAI, a non-profit organization founded by Victor Larkhill with the aim of ʀᴇsᴄᴜɪɴɢ animals, provides them with appropriate treatment and temporary shelter until they are adopted. Victor Larkhill and his team received a call from someone about a dog of urgent help that was currently residing at Cartal, Spain. Immediately, they located the dog and went to that location.
The ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇ team found the poor Fox Terrier chained to a wall. The owner stopped taking care of the dog a long time ago, so she was always tied to the chain all the time. There were only machines and wheels of the tractor around her. Larkhill then asked the owners for the dog’s name, but he became angry when he heard that they had never given the dog a name.
When the people from the shelter approached the dog, they could hardly hold tears near the scene. She had a big ɢʀᴏᴡᴛʜ on the abdomen, and she always cried in ᴘᴀɪɴ when they touched her. Look at the thin dog because of malnutrition, its hair is all gray. Her living environment made her condition much worse.
Larkhill removed the chain from the wall, the dog’s wish to be free came true. Since the owner did not name the dog, the rescuers named the dog, Maria. After putting the dog in the car, the ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇ team rushed it to Valencia Sur Veterinary Hospital for a closer examination of Maria’s condition. The doctors performed an ultrasound and decided that Maria must have sᴜʀɢᴇʀʏ to remove the ᴛᴜᴍᴏʀ.
The sᴜʀɢᴇʀʏ was a success, now the dog is slowly recovering and preparing to find a nice new home. It is truly a touching story and thanks to LAI for enabling the dog to have a better life.
