Dying Dog Found On Street Is Completely Transformed In Two Months

This sick dog was found by Indian organization Animal Aid Unlimited. It was suffering from mange, and clearly had had no human contact in a long time. They brought him to their shelter and tried to interest him in some food.

“He was so exhausted and inward.”

Animal Aid Unlimited hooked the dog up to an IV and treated his infections, and within ten days, his skin was healed. But the real transformation took place in the following weeks. When we finally see the dog again, two months later, he’s happy and fully healed!

More info: animalaidunlimited.com | Facebook (h/t: thedodo)

This dog had mange and was starving and dehydrated

He was found on the side of the road in Udaipur, India

At first, he was afraid of human touch

But with gentle care and treatment he started to get better

After two months of intensive treatment his skin had healed and he was happy

Animal Aid Unlimited helped him get over his anxiety

The end result: a healthy dog, eager to live life!

You can watch his story in the video below:

We ARE their voices. This story is inspiring beyond words. Please adopt shelter dogs.

Agree. I always encourage people to adopt. Adopted dogs/cats are the best. So many people want to have a certain breed they don't care. My cousin for example. He just went out & bought 2 dogs for a couple of thousands. Sad.

Oh my...I would adopt this dog soooooo fast. Blessings to the people and the animals, each and every one.

Always amazes me at the depth of human depravity and then to see the wonderful instances of human kindness. All of us and India in particular, should take note of their own Mahatma Gandhi who stated, " The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated."

I feel for animals so much more than Humans. The animals need human kindness. Please give it to them.

You feel for animals more than your own race? Why so much self hatred? HUMANS are the ones who saved this poor animal.

All my critters: 5 dogs, 3 cats, a parrot, (and a husband) are all rescues. But it is particularly gratifying to learn that a country such as India has people who understand the need to rescue, carry through and heal those animals they are able to care for. The horrendous condition of this dog, and how he healed in just a few months is a tale I wish for ALL stray, sick and injured dogs, cats, horses, animals all over the world. We as humans have the ability to cure the ills of the world. If only that were reality! And for this dog, I will hope he finds a loving, forever home!

I think in India they have no respect for animals except those cows. It is animals cruelty and inhumane to allow this poor creature to be treated so badly.

Humans aren't treated that much better in India/Pakistan/China... more than a billion of anything, it kinda loses its value
