Rescuers were devastated to find an injured pit bull on a mattress in an abandoned house. Although they didn’t get the ending they would have liked, they will never forget what they experienced.
There are stories, like the one about the little dog you will learn about below, that are a real mystery and are never solved. This little animal had no name and they don’t know how he got to the place where he was found. They only knew that he needed someone who truly loved him.
When Stray Rescue of St. Louis entered a recently abandoned house, they went upstairs and saw a pit bull, alone and resting on an old mattress. An experienced rescuer named Donna was the first to approach the dog.
The rescuers knew the puppy was in an abandoned house when they saw the silhouette through the windows.
They thought they saw something through the broken glass of a window, so they decided to go inside and it was a good hunch. They found the little dog there, lying peacefully enjoying some sunshine. It took them a couple of minutes for the animal to approach them gently.
It was evident that the animal was not well. It looked very sore, so they resolved to take it immediately to receive the necessary veterinary attention. The bad news was just around the corner.
This heartbreaking scene really broke the rescuers’ hearts.
At all times, the unnamed little dog remained very close to his heroes. He looked tired, as if the illness that afflicted him had been with him for a long time. It was evident that now he only cared about receiving a little affection.
The veterinarian determined that there was nothing to be done. The little dog had suffered for a long time from a prolapse that had compromised his existence. Now all that was left for him to do was to know the love and generosity of people in his last days of life.
Although the news shocked his rescuers, the little dog did not miss the opportunity to lick their faces, as if that simple gesture was the purest thanks a person could receive.
In every minute of breath that remained in this doggy’s life, he received the love of his benefactors.
Those responsible for the pit bull did not give up, but the prognosis remained just as grim. There was only one thing to do: to love this noble little animal as never before, until his last breath, and so they did.
They would have given anything to give this loving dog a second chance, but unfortunately they were too late. That’s why, when it comes to an animal in a state of neglect, every minute counts, because you never know what you’re really fighting against.
We are very sad to know that this little dog could not tell a better story, but at least our hearts are relieved to know that he did not leave this world without knowing what it was like to receive the affection and attention of a generous person.
His terrible illness did not prevent him from demonstrating his deep gratitude.
For his heroes, it was undoubtedly one of the most impressive rescues throughout his career saving little animals. They had never seen a puppy with such a desolate fate due to human carelessness, and at the same time so much love from a helpless creature that only knew evil and ingratitude. But they really went out of their way to make him cross the rainbow with the good taste that not all humans are monsters.
Please don’t forget to help every vulnerable animal, either by intervening directly, or by reporting them to the authorities. Every second counts and could save a defenseless life.
