Puppies can’t stop hugging ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇʀs after being ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇᴅ from ᴛʜᴇ sʟᴀᴜɢʜᴛᴇʀʜᴏᴜsᴇ
The story below is about a ᴘᴏᴏʀ dog named Sweety, who was sᴀᴠᴇᴅ from ᴛʜᴇ sʟᴀᴜɢʜᴛᴇʀʜᴏᴜsᴇ by Michael Chour, the founder of ᴀɴ ᴏʀɢᴀɴɪᴢᴀᴛɪᴏɴ ᴛʜᴀᴛ sᴀᴠᴇs ᴅᴏɢs ꜰʀᴏᴍ ᴛʜᴇ Asɪᴀɴ ᴍᴇᴀᴛ ᴛʀᴀᴅᴇ, who really changed her life. Sweety is a ᴍɪsᴇʀᴀʙʟᴇ dog who daily awaits her ꜰᴀᴛᴇ in the back corner, when she is sᴀᴠᴇᴅ by this hero. Chour negotiated with the abattoir owner to release seventeen dogs including Sweety.
Michael Chour, founder of The Sound of Animals, sᴀᴠᴇᴅ Sweety just before she was slaughtered by convincing her owner to turn her over. He is visiting a dog meat farm in Phnom Penh, Cᴀᴍʙᴏᴅɪᴀ, to save as many dogs as possible. Sweety was crouched in a cage, sᴄᴀʀᴇᴅ of the people around him when he came to get her. “She was still sᴄᴀʀᴇᴅ when I stepped out of the cage, and she was staring at the butcher,” Chour said. “However, when I turned my back on him, she pushed herself against me and buried her head underneath me.”
Dogs have a way of knowing who they can trust to protect them from ʜᴀʀᴍ, and Sweety did not hesitate to lean in against Chour as soon as he picked her up. She placed her head under his chin, and she refused to let go of him. Even when Chour sought medical attention for Sweety at a local ᴠᴇᴛᴇʀɪɴᴀʀʏ ᴄʟɪɴɪᴄ, Sanie sought the comfort of Michael. Chour believes Sanie had a family before being ᴋɪᴅɴᴀᴘᴘᴇᴅ and sᴏʟᴅ for meat by ᴛʜɪᴇᴠᴇs. But he knows she’s at ease now. “She knows I sᴀᴠᴇᴅ her and she feels my love,” Chour explained. “Dogs are intelligent and understand what is going on.”Chour believes that Sanie once had a happy, loving home and was unfortunately sᴛᴏʟᴇɴ away. She may have been sᴏʟᴅ to ᴛʜᴇ ᴍᴇᴀᴛ ꜰᴀʀᴍ for cash. While she has had a ᴛᴇʀʀɪꜰʏɪɴɢ time recently, she is now safe and secure in Chour’s care. Chour hopes to help her recover from her ordeal in a loving environment before finding a new permanent home for her.
