In the depths of an ancient temple, a critically-injured puppy found shelter and appeared to be praying for help…
Rescue organization Animal Aid Unlimited of India found the injured dog there, sitting upright in the corner of the temple.
It was clear the dog was in dire need of help and rescuers reassured him that he was going to be ok.
A rescuer lifted the dog’s lifeless body and carried him to the truck where they would head back to the shelter.
The medical staff immediately tended to the dog and he was in too much pain to even resist it. He must have known his prayers had been answered.
Medical staff discovered he lost so much blood that he was very dehydrated and needed IV fluid for several days before he stabilized.
They dressed his deep wounds for four weeks and watched him grow stronger every day. They named the tiny survivor Punkin, and if you saw him now, he’s almost unrecognizable.
If it wasn’t for Animal Aid Unlimited, India, this dog would not be alive today. To learn how you can help Punkin and other dogs like him, please click here.
