Some hikers were enjoying a walk in the woods when they stumbled upon an emaciated brown dog. Getting closer, they realized this wasn’t a lost pet, but rather an abused dog that was in desperate need of their help.
Thankfully, they had mercy for the dog and took him to some people nearby. The people agreed to help the pup that was starving and in terrible shape. The dog could barely stand to eat and needed immediate veterinary care. But when the kindhearted people took him to the vet, they received terrible news. The sweet dog had a cerebellar injury from impact, his teeth had been filed down very short, he had bites marks all over his body, and he was severely anemic.
They were told the dog would never move normally again, never mind walk. Despite all his injuries, they wanted to give him a chance to recover as best as he could. So, they worked with the vet to provide him with the best care they could and began to feed his malnourished body with the hopes of making him stronger.
They cried many tears for the dog they named called Taco. His recovery was slow, but they never gave up, even when the vet said he’d never walk again. They made him a special harness to help him and every day, nursed him along as best they could. Ever so slowly and after several months, they decided to take Taco from the vet and enrich his life as best they could and let him experience life. They took him on a beach vacation where he played in the sand as best as he was able.
The special dog went from near death to walking on the beach with people who loved him. Even though he would never fully recover, Taco had a life worth living, and people who would help him do it. Their kindness and generosity to the dog who suffered so much pain is heartwarming. They refused to give up on him and in return, he did the best he could and returned their love. It is truly a miracle that Taco is alive.
We hope his story warms your heart as much as it does ours. The sweet dog never gave up and his new people never gave up on him. All because of the kindness of strangers, he is alive today. Please share his survival story with your friends.
