At all costs, many of us strive to protect the innocent among us. Seeing an innocent creature injured or abandoned causes all of our hearts to ache. For one little puppy, the kindness of a stranger with compassion was the only thing that saved his life.
When our good samaritan found the little pup, it was obvious it was in dire straits.
While physical injuries are one thing, emotional ones are another. With the right amount of care and medical attention, pups (and humans) can recover from some incredible things. Emotional trauma, however, is harder to get rid of.
From the looks of it, the little dog had experienced plenty of both.
When the dog was taken to a local rescue group in Brazil, they could finally get a good look at him. Naming him Sardinha, the story of the abandoned puppy was made clear. Sardinha had a home at one point.
Sardinha was abandoned when his owners found he had gotten sick.
When Sardinha got sick one day, his owners didn’t care for him as he needed. Instead of getting the pup the care he deserved, they decided it would be better to abandon him and throw off the responsibility of an innocent life.
When his parents left him to fend for himself, his situation only got worse.
Understandably, Sardinha’s situation only worsened when he was thrown out. When his rescuer found him, he had scabies, works, and an eye infection. Even worse than his physical ailments, however, was his spirit.
Sardinha had taken responsibility for his condition.
Shame is a powerful feeling. When the little dog was brought it, shame was written all over him. While we don’t know if he was abused physically, he showed extreme signs of shame. The poor little dog probably thought it was all his fault that he got sick and thrown out!
Slowly, they made progress with him.
After a bit of treatment, the team had their first breakthrough with the pup. While one of the team members was working on him, he lifted his eyes and made eye-contact for the first time!
Medical care is important, but Sardinha needed someone to love him.
A local woman who loves dogs decided to call the shelter and see if any dogs needed any help. After calling, she learned about Sardinha and her little heart went out to him. Making her decision, she was able to get permission to foster the little guy!
Soon, the timid and injured dog was playing as a puppy should.
A puppy who doesn’t play just isn’t right! After a few days of some much needed TLC, little Sardinha was outside playing with toys and his new friends. Even better than that, a family noticed the little dog playing and asked if he was looking for a forever home. Within a few days, he was officially adopted by a family that loved him! Sometimes all it takes is a kind person to save the life of an innocent animal.
