One cold winter’s day, Maylea Ankrom noticed some crying noises coming from one of her old neighbours homes. The neighbours had moved away around two months before so Maylea decided to investigate the wimpering sound and she couldn’t believe what she was about to see.
When Maylea made her way into the house it became apparent that her old neighbours had done the unthinkable! They had moved house and left their poor fur baby alone in the home. The house was freezing cold and covered in the dogs faeces and her heart was broken when she saw the little guy led in the corner of their sofa, shivering and alone.
Maylea had to pass piles of faeces to get to the dog, who was trapped inside the house
When she approached the dog she saw he was in a bad way, with patches of fur missing and his skin looking sore, so she knew she had to do something to help him. Piglet was taken to the vets and was diagnosed with a yeast infection and other skin problems which required several medications every day to treat.
Piglet was a fighter though, and over the coming weeks Maylea nurtured him back to good health, giving him lots of love and cuddles and reintroducing a healthy diet.
Piglet is well on the way to recover thanks to Maylea and her kind heart
Maylea knew that it was going to be a long road to recovery for Piglet so she decided to video his journey to recovery for others to see how this brave boy never gave up. He’s become a smash hit on social media but it’s not all been plain sailing for Piglet.
Piglet has been suffering from intense anxiety which often causes him to become aggressive when he is nervous. The brave pooch is trying his hardest though and because of his rise to fame, his followers have raised nearly $4000 dollars so that Maylea can get him the help he needs to live a normal happy life. What a blessing Maylea has been for Piglet, she never gave up on him and it’s clear to see that his health has drastically improved!
Thank you for your kind heart Maylea, we appreciate everything you have done for Piglet, and hope that in the near future he can live with you without any fear or anxiety. If you’d like to follow Piglet’s journey you can find him at @pigletandcrew on TikTok
