Less than two months ago, a young puppy crawled into an old building and made his way into a dilapidated room to hide. His instinct led the dying dog to retreat into a quiet corner, as he waited and hid, pawing at the gaping wound on top of his head spanning ear to ear, trying desperately to make the excruciating pain go away. It seems that death would have been welcome.
No one knows how long the large puppy had been suffering, but his malnourished and dehydrated body only intensified the fiery agony as the maggot infested, gaping wound grew worse by the hour. But as miracles can suddenly appear, that day in late October arrived Animal Aid Unlimited, a rescue center, hospital and sanctuary for stray street animals in Udaipur, Rajasthan, India. The moment the rescuers arrived and offered the puppy biscuits, he devoured them.
Rushed back to Animal Aid, the life-saving treatments commenced; he never showed any resistance as he was sedated to cleanse him of the maggots and start the healing process. Described as a stellar little patient, he never complained about his ongoing treatments; he just knew these humans were there to help him.
It has now been a little over two months. Watch how his pain has been replaced by pure joy. His recovery video is guaranteed to make you smile. To help Animal Aid Unlimited make more successful rescues, donations can be made here.
