Prepare yourselves to be emotional as you witness this beautiful story of a chained dog rescued from a life of cruelty. The person from the video rescued this dog after being chained up outside for practically his entire life.
One day, in Phoenix, Arizona, where temperatures reach 120 during summer, this guy who filmed the video saw a dog chained up at somebody’s the backyard.
For three years, he kept seeing this dog and never for once was he ever off the chain. He also never, for once, saw someone played or interacted with the pooch. Every time he saw the dog; the pup would snarl at him. He would bark, and he did not seem friendly.
On one particular day, this person sat by the fence and waited on the dog to calm down. He then talked to the dog and told him that everything would turn out fine.
The dog was reluctant at first, and the guy was also cautious so as not to get bitten. After some time, he managed to stick his hand inside the fence and pet the dog. The pup seemed to appreciate the affection he was receiving.
Be Persistent With Rescue Dogs
He came back every day since then, bringing the pooch some treats and spending some precious time with him. The dog turned out to be friendly and loved human interaction.
The dog was not taken care off; he had open wounds and visible body tumors. The person grew so very attached to the dog; it was fair enough to say that the dog felt the same towards him.
He knew that he could not leave the dog anymore in those conditions. One day, the owner came out and saw him petting the dog. This wonderful person took the opportunity to speak to the owner about the dog’s condition.
He explained to the owner that leaving a dog chained up outside day after day is animal cruelty. He also said this chained dog rescued needed immediate medical attention. The owner just laughed at him.
He insisted that he was not leaving without the dog. Although he knew that he could not adopt the dog himself, he just knew he could not leave him like that anymore. Finally, the woman agreed to hand the dog over to him.
Dog Was Chained Up For Years
He started calling him Rusty Diamond. They went out for what seemed like his first walk outside that backyard, and the dog was obviously enjoying. The guy wanted to get rid of his chain, but he just kept in on as a temporary leash.
Rusty Diamond was brought to the vet and was very well behaved. He was finally off the chain after some work. They had to cut the collar where the chain was attached. This wonderful dog was then brought for grooming. He had some sort of oil all over his coat that a degreaser was needed to wash and clean him off.
The guy who rescued him made a temporary enclosure for him to stay in until he could decide what to do with the pooch.
Fortunately, a loving adoptive family opted to give him a forever home. Rusty is definitely enjoying his new life now. He even had pet siblings to enjoy every single day with.
It would not have been possible if not for this one person who had the courage to speak up for him.
