There is nothing worse than watching an animal suffer, writes ilovemydogsomuch. As animal lovers, we are the ones who always stand to help, no matter the situation, but many people don’t care. This poor boy, whom they later named Kanzi, was lying helplessly on the ground in the freezing rain. He desperately needed someone to stop and help him, but no one did. Kanzi was on the verge of passing away from hypothermia. Two kind people came and were horrified that no one had helped this dog! They even thought he was already gone and wanted to cover him with a blanket to give him a proper burial. But as they approached, they saw that his chest was heaving and his eyes were moving.
Kanzi was very weak. His eyes looked very sad, as if he had given up on everything. No dog should look so depressed, but Kanzi felt useless after being ignored for so long. The rain continued to fall and he shivered for warmth. Kanzi needed affection and love as much as she needed a warm place to sleep.
Kind people brought a blanket and food and did their best to make him comfortable while they called an emergency vet. They said they had found a dog in bad condition. The vet asked them to gently pick him up and take him to the hospital.
The vet was immediately worried about Kanzi. He was covered in old wounds and had no blood count. He was suffering from kidney and liver failure. The vet explained this to him and allowed his rescuers to put him to sleep. The rescuers asked the vet if he could give Kanzi intravenous painkillers and fluids. The vet agreed.
Kanzi’s new human friends don’t know how much time he has left, but they agree to take him home anyway. They want to show him what it means to feel loved for as long as possible. Kanzi now lives with two wonderful people who found him. Most days he is tired but not in pain. His new family is trying to keep her with them for as long as possible. Kanzi is now being cuddled and we are so grateful that he was finally rescued. It’s a shame that he was ignored for so long because people focused on their own lives.
