Wounded Old Dog Wedged Himself Into A Corner To Block Out The Painful World

Age is not a factor when it comes to love. The same is true when it comes to animal rescue and the compassion that’s involved. Just because a dog is old, he shouldn’t be left to die.

Especially in such an unimaginable way. When this poor dog was found, he was lying in a corner of a yard. He was facing inward as if he was hiding from the world.

He knew, in his heart, the end was near. His injuries were extensive and painful. He just wanted it to be over.

But the rescuers with Animal Aid weren’t going to let him lay there and suffer. They were at least going to try to alleviate his pain, and then go from there.

When they saw the dog’s injuries, they were heartbroken. He had a badly injured ear and a gaping hole in his stomach. What happened to this poor boy?

He was skin and bones. When was the last time he had a decent meal? When the rescuer lifted the old dog up, he whimpered and cried.

It was such a devastating sound. But they had to move him in order to get him the help he desperately needed.

They brought him back to the Animal Aid sanctuary to have him medically evaluated. The poor boy was given pain medication and something to relax him while they assessed him.

Maggots crawled inside his wounds. The medical staff poured the powder into the wounds. This medicine would kill the maggots so they could clean out his wounds properly.

Several hours later, the maggots were dead. Now it was time to clean his wounds by cutting away the dead tissue and everything that was infected. He was still sedated so, again, he felt no pain.

After his wounds were tended to and his sedation wore off, it was time to get the dog to eat and drink. Building up his strength would be a huge part of his healing.

This old boy’s road to recovery would be paved with challenges but the caregivers at Animal Aid refused to give up.

Nearly a month later, he was still weak and struggling but his wounds were healing nicely. The medical team still had hope that the old dog would improve.

With patience, kindness, and love– the old dog was transformed! Meet the dog that was close to giving up, now named Baloo!

Baloo loves to lay in the sun and cuddle with his caregivers. He’s missing some teeth so his tongue hangs out, which everyone thinks is so darn cute! And we agree!

Baloo may not have a lot of time left. No one can be sure how long. But at least his time left is filled with sunny days.

He’s no longer suffering or alone. He’s not wedged into a dark corner. He’s surrounded by love! And when it comes to love, age is never a factor!

Lucky Elderly Man Is Greeted Every Day By A “Friend” Who Crawls Out Of The Ice:

We’ve all seen some unique and unlikely friendships over the years, but this one here may take the cake!

One day, a starving otter appeared at an elderly man’s door wanting some food. Ever since, Seppo Laamanen, 65, and Iivari the otter have been inseparable best friends.

Source: StoryTrender/YouTube

It all started when Seppo fed worms and fish to the small and malnourished otter who was clearly looking for food.

After that, the friendly animal repaid the kindness by visiting the man at his home in Punkaharju in easter Finland. This was the start of something special.

There’s no way Seppo could’ve ever imagined it’d all lead to this. This adorably unique friendship is one for the ages, and it’s something you have to see to believe.

There’s nothing like the bond between two friends regardless of the species! 🙂

10 Of The “Most Loyal” Dog Breeds On The Planet

Giving love and support to humans is something that some dogs do better than others.

While many dogs love everyone they meet and are willing to take treats or belly rubs from anyone, the pups we found are just the opposite.

These 10 dogs are some of the most loyal breeds on the planet. They are rock steady in their loyalty to their owner no matter what.

1) Akita

When the American Kennel Club (AKC) lists loyalty to describe the temperament of the Akita, you know they mean business. The beautiful double-coated working dog of Japanese ancestry is considered hardwired in protecting those she loves. They should be socialized with other dogs and people from the time they are puppies. Their silly, fun, but dignified personalities round out the loyal Akita.

2) Boxer

This working dog is smart, full of energy, and oh so loyal to their family. They get along great with kids and have an innate instinct to protect their pack. He’s a watchdog with a heart of gold who oozes dedication to his owner.

3) Skye Terrier

Known as the “small dog with the big ears,” this adorable breed hails from the Scottish Isle of Skye, hence the name. Whether you live in the city or the country, this small dog with a big personality is steadfast in snuggling, playtime, and remaining loyal to his owners.

4) Beagle

This merry hound is friendly, curious and incredibly loyal. While he doesn’t mind the occasional couch potato time, this spunky pooch is energetic and merry. A fun fact about this hound: the breed standard is for 13 inches and under and another in the 13-15 inch category. No matter how you size him, these adorable dogs just want to cling to you.

5) Shar-Pei

This wrinkly non-sporting breed is standoffish to strangers but very loyal to his owner. His ancient Chinese roots are part of the charm of the Shar-Pei. Regal, strong, and smart, if you want a BFF for life, this loose-skinned pooch may be the right choice for you.
