When an animal is not looked after, it really shows, and every day rescuers find more and more animals that are homeless and mistreated.
Rescuers in Chicago got a shock when they came across a border collie wandering around a deserted railroad. The pup was on its own and looking rather worse for wear.
The dog had clearly been abandoned by his owner and could barely walk when they found him; his fur was so matted that they couldn’t even tell the gender at the time. There was so much dirt, faeces, urine, twigs etc. matted into the fur that it was impossible to identify any anatomy.
“It took shaving the pup’s bottom down to be able to figure out if we were dealing with a male or female dog.
Well, it turned out that the poor pooch was a male and the rescuers named him Freight, after the frightful ordeal he had been through. But it wasn’t over there…
Once they got rid of the excess fur they realised that he was suffering from a number of conditions, such internal parasites including heart worm. But thankfully they were able to treat the conditions, and once he’d made a full recovery, they put him up for adoption.
It didn’t take long for this beautiful, rehabilitated pooch to get adopted. Just a few days later, a couple turned up to the shelter and fell in love with Freight, immediately taking him to his forever home.
They are so in love with Freight and just couldn’t bear parting with him. By the look of Freight’s adoption photo, he couldn’t be prouder or happier.
What a wonderful happy ending! If you enjoyed this heartwarming story, leave your comments in the section below and share it with your friends. 🐝
