You're responsible for what you have tamed. Many years ago, people domesticated dogs and cats because they believed it would bring them benefits along with good mood. They learned to take responsibility for pets, but over the years, many have forgotten about it. Unfortunately, it’s quite common to meet stray dogs on the streets, understanding they must have definitely once lived in a family. The animals patiently wait for the owners, not understanding the cruelty to the “faithful and devoted friend.” What drags people to abandon their pets in such a heartless way?

Our story for today concerns the ability to take responsibility where other people have failed to do so; about selfless help that our world lacks so much.
This dog was abandoned at the gas station by its cruel owners. As a true friend, the Russian Spaniel humbly waited for 3 weeks for his family to return for him. Apparently, he was afraid to move somewhere not to miss the happy reunion. But no one came to pick up this curly cutie.
After learning the truth about what happened, the heroine of our story, Elena, decided to act. First, she fed the pet. The canine turned out to be very friendly and eager to communicate with the woman. Then Elena decided to take him home to rehabilitate. The dog had severe problems with ticks – the new family removed about 40 of them along his body! Such negligence could have been lethal if not for the timely help. After visiting a vet, the family found out that the dog also suffered from dehydration and indigestion.
The Spaniel became really happy when he heard the word home at the gas station. He knew very well what it meant. Elena doesn’t mind a newly acquired pet, but she already has 2 dogs and a cat at home who aren’t quite ready to share their territory with a new guest. The family named the animal Loki. He is in desperate need of a new home. His recovery is going very well, and he seems to be very friendly to people. He shows them much more love than people once showed him.
What should you do when taking a dog from the streets home?
- If it doesn’t behave aggressively, bathe it first.
- Don’t feed it too much – it could have been without food for a long time, so its stomach may find it hard to cope with such amount at first.
- Take the dog to a vet.
- Don’t shout – it must learn to trust you.
- Keep a calm atmosphere in the house while the dog tries to adapt to the general environment.
- Don’t hit or scold it, even if it may be wrong somewhere.
- Buy some toys and a sleeping place to make the animal feel your care.
- If you already have animals in the house, the new dog will urgently need its personal sleeping place, highlighting its territory.
Don’t be neglectful to such cases. Become the savior and protector if you see they desperately need it! Stay alert.
