Earlier this week, a post on social media about an adopted dog went viral. The post was about how a woman rescued abandoned dogs that were left behind. During the rescue operation, one of the dogs connected with the woman and showed affection. Despite being abandoned, chained, and left to die, the canine was still capable of showing affection for his rescuer. So far, the video has been shared and liked thousands of times.
“I saw abandoned dogs for days with no food, water or shelter, dying in 100+ degrees. They were tied up on two-foot chains, not able to move. I waited to see if someone would help them and I couldn’t sleep at night, so I saved them.” said the post.
“Minutes after, the one of the dogs reached for my hand multiple times wanting affection. It broke my heart that he’d been neglected and was dying and wasn’t mad at me but grateful.” explained the post, “I started to cry and again, his focus shifted from himself to now my needs. I couldn’t believe so much love came from an animal that literally just came from a situation like he was in.”
Most of the dogs were taken into an animal shelter, where they will be looking for people to adopt them and take them into their permanent homes. Although they are still abandoned, at least in the shelter, their basic needs will be met and they will be taken care of by the facility.
