Man’s Best Friend definitely got his nickname for good reason and that’s why it’s so heartbreaking when people can’t treat dogs with such love, dignity, and respect. A sad example of this comes all the way from Iran, where heroes came to the rescue of a dog on the brink of death.
Thankfully, the amazing organization Sezar Sanctuary was able to rescue the dog just in time. The poor thing had been tied up with rope around his neck and was nearly strangled to death. The rope cut off the circulation of blood and oxygen to his brain and his head became filled with fluid, as his body suffered from severe infections.
He was abandoned and alone on the streets, but when the heroes arrived to finally help him, they refused to give up on him and named him Delavar, which is the perfect name because it means courageous in Persian.
Although it wasn’t easy and took a very long time, Delavar eventually started to recover from the traumatic near-death experience and began to thrive. The three videos below show the progression of this brave dog’s journey back to health and to his forever home.
