Street Puppy So Emaciated He Could Not Walk Takes His First Steps To Love !

The Sparkle puppy did not have much hope of survival when neighbors reached out for Animal Aid Unlimited in India. The street puppy lay in the dust and did not move. But when they came to help him, he wagged his tail.

”When we first saw this skinny puppy it looked like he had been hit by a car, but then his neighbors told us that he had stopped eating and suddenly was unable to stand.”

Gently lifting Sparkle, rescuers took him to the hospital.

We determined by his nasal discharge, diarrhea and loss of appetite that he probably had canine distemper, a virus that can be fatal and for which there is no direct treatment. Because distemper sufferers often develop what’s called secondary pneumonia, we gave him preventive antibiotics and were so happy that he began eating within the first day.”

But Sparkle wanted more than food.

He was so sensitive that love seemed to be as important to him as food itself and we wondered if his condition could improve without it. He didn’t stand for a few days, and when he did, he seemed to be motivated by his willingness to give love. “

He uses all his strength to run to his rescuers for hugs and attention.

Sparkle’s courage is so touching to watch. And wait until you see him a few weeks after his rescue.
