The scenes of the transformation of an absolutely sad and depressed puppy into one that does not stop wagging its tail are touching millions of hearts.
The drama of abandonment and neglect we do not wish it to anyone. But even worse to those beings full of innocence and kindness such as dogs, who have done nothing to deserve so much indolence and cruelty from humans.
Walt is a 1 year old Jack-A-Bee puppy (Jack Russell and Beagle mix), who is the most convincing example that all furry dogs deserve a second chance in life.
When he came into the hands of his current owner, Kelly Fitzsimons, after being rescued by the Irish animal organization, Wicklow Animal Welfare, he was in a truly heartbreaking emotional state.
Doggies like Walt definitely need not have suffered so much. It really tugs at our heartstrings to see that even though caring humans like Kelly open the doors of their home to them, their psychological recovery still has a long way to go.
When this broken down and broken doggie was loaded into the car to be taken to his new home, his little face spoke volumes about the profound ordeal he had been through and which continues to haunt him completely.
The little dog was terribly frightened and devastated.
Walt looked incredibly sad, terrified, and discouraged on that journey to his salvation. And although Kelly hoped that the little dog would soon change his face, it was far from easy.
Even though she was trying her best, something told her that she still couldn’t trust humans.
What was wrong with her was that she had never experienced what a cuddle meant, much less a house to call home.
Just taking that first step through the door was overwhelming because he didn’t know if someone would hurt him…and he didn’t know if they would.
However, with great patience and above all a huge dose of love, a month later Kelly began to see a true miracle and didn’t hesitate to record the process to share in a TikTok video.
Understandably, it had gone viral in just a few hours reaching almost 2 million reproductions.
“Now everyone says hello to Walt. We adopted him just under a month ago. Disappointed by humans, he came in so broken and scared, he still is, but he has earned our trust over the last 4 weeks and is such a happy pup here with us,” Kelly wrote on Instagram.
“We still have a long way to go with him, but he is an absolute sweetheart. You can almost feel his appreciation for us, and we adore him,” she added.
“From being very scared, not knowing what a warm home feels like, not knowing human love, sitting staring at the wall for hours, he went from wagging his tail, trusting humans, finding comfort and a best friend. Welcome home, Walt,” can be read next to the video that thrills millions.
The scenes he shared really strike a chord with everyone on the networks.
The help of another rescued puppy in the home was crucial for Walt to start gaining confidence in his new parents.
Now his owner can’t believe he’s even learned to respond to commands, and he’s about as loving and intelligent as they come.
Walt can’t even believe that he can be so happy next to a human.
He is living everything he ever deserved since he was a puppy, and he truly tastes happiness.
A little dog who suffered so much deserved such a happy ending. His story is a reminder of the wonder of second chances – Walt more than deserved it!
