Isumu was a dog that never experienced love. They abandoned him near a shelter, left to fend for himself on the side of the road.
He had a broad stripe and blood around his neck from the shackles that had formerly held him, and his long nails caused him anguish with every step he took. His body was covered in rabies wounds. He had a unique scent of rotten meat.
Despite all of his suffering, Isumu’s eyes still held a spark of life. He still had the potential to experience fear, humility, and hope. He prayed to God that someone would come to his help and save him from his anguish.
He was found by a volunteer in the shelter. He took Isumu to the shelter, where he received medical care and was given a comfortable bed to sleep in. Isumu is washed and cleansed of wounds. He was given food and drink. For the first time in a long time, he felt cared for and loved.
Day 10: Isumu began to recover. His wounds started to repair, and his fur began to grow back. He no longer smelt like rotten flesh, and his eyes started to glow with delight and contentment.
Day 80: Finally, a pleasant family arrived to the shelter who wanted to adopt a dog. When they saw Isumu, they immediately fell in love with him.
They could feel the power and perseverance that lurked underneath his tough appearance. They knew he was the dog for them. Isumu’s new family carried him home, where he was showered with love and devotion.
He no longer had to suffer in quiet or hope for someone to save him. He finally had a home and a family who loved him unconditionally.
