Rescuers were left heartbroken when they found an injured pit bull on the mattress in an abandoned house. Although they did not achieve the ending they wanted, what they experienced they will never be able to forget.
There are stories, like the one about the puppy that you will know next, that are a true mystery and never manage to be solved. This little animal had no name and they do not know how it got to the place where it was found. They just knew that he needed someone to truly love 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.
Rescuers learned that the puppy was in an abandoned house when they saw the silhouette through the windows
They seemed to have seen something through the broken glass of a window, so they decided to go in and the truth is that it was a good hunch. They found the puppy there, lying peacefully enjoying some sunshine. It took a couple of minutes for the animal to approach them gently.
It was evident that the animal was not well. He seemed very sore, so they decided to take him immediately to receive the necessary veterinary attention. The bad news was just yet to come.
This heartbreaking scene really broke rescuers’ hearts
At all times, the nameless puppy 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 clear that he only cared about receiving a little affection now.
The vet determined that there was nothing to do. The puppy had long suffered from a prolapse that had compromised its existence. Now he only had to know the love and generosity of people in his last days of life.
Although the news shocked his rescuers, the puppy did not miss the opportunity to lick their faces, as if that simple gesture was the purest gratitude that a person could receive.
In every minute of encouragement that remained in this little dog’s life, he received the love of his benefactors
Those responsible for the pit bull did not give up, but the forecasts were still just as bleak. There was only one thing to do: love this noble animal like never before, until his last breath and they did.
They would have given their all to give this loving dog a second chance, but unfortunately they had come too late. So when it comes to an abandoned animal, every minute counts, because you never know what you’re really fighting against.
It saddens us very much to know that this little dog could not tell a better story, but at least it relieves our hearts to be certain that he did not leave this world without first knowing what it was like to receive the affection and attention of a generous person.
His terrible illness did not prevent him from showing his deep appreciation
For his heroes, without a doubt, it was one of the most impressive rescues throughout his career saving animals. They had never seen a puppy with such a bleak fate because of human neglect, and at the same time so much love on the part of a defenseless creature that only knew evil and ingratitude. But they really went out of their way to make him cross the rainbow with that good taste that not all humans are monsters.
Please, do not forget to help any vulnerable animal, either by intervening directly, or by reporting to the authorities. Every second counts and they could save a defenseless life.
