We often see stray dogs on city streets. Some look frightening. They are very hungry, cold, sick, skinny and have fleas to feed.
Some passers-by bring them something to eat. Others simply grieve over them. But few people are able to take the unfortunate ones home with them.
And it is very good that there are people ready to take in a stray dog, treat it and change its life in a drastic way.
A boy was walking home one day. He saw a dog at the edge of the road that was so bad it was impossible to look at it without crying.
It was very thin, its fur was almost completely shaved off, and it was all dirty and gaunt and wild. In a word, a terrible sight.
Nevertheless, he approached the poor living creature. He saw that the dog was terrified of people.
And the man was already determined to take the dog back. He wanted to give him back both his good health and his normal appearance.
But the dog was extremely frightened. She had never before seen her being cared for.
With the dog, the young man went to the vet clinic. There he was told what kind of care he needed, what kind of food he needed and how to take care of him in general.
It took a lot of effort. And a lot of money too. But thanks to this, the dog began to ‘come to life’, turning into a beautiful animal.
The owner was especially pleased that the dog became accustomed to him and was no longer afraid of him. Then good health changes followed. Finally a new coat started to grow.
After a while there was no trace of this former «bogeyman» left. He became a handsome dog. He’s healthy, happy, full of energy and content. He has a new home, a wonderful owner and many friends.
