Tom only needed food and water… even that was denied to him
We live in a permanent state of emergency. Rare is the day when we are
He has been found where most hunting dogs are found, in the fields, laying flat under a tree waiting for his time to die. His first reaction was to stand up and run away but he was too weak and he stumbled after a few steps. From that moment on he didn’t offer any resistance, he probably felt like giving up.
His blood results are horrid. Not bad, horrid. His albumin levels are, in the words of our vet, incompatible with life. Every single blood indicator is off the charts. To make it worst he has the dreaded Leishmania, one of the most feared off diseases in this part of the world. Dogs can recover, but only when caught in time and administered a costly treatment.
And then it hits me. Tom didn´t ask for any luxury, he didn´t even ask for tenderness and love as he probably never experienced any. He just needed some food and water to stay alive and live the misery he called life. Even that was denied to him.
Tom is a good dog, I look at his eyes and I tell him he´s going to be ok, and as he falls asleep I promise him we are going to fight for him, and that he will never lack of anything for as long as he lives….
Our hard work has paid off… Tom has returned from death.. he is a different dog now
Tom will never know how lucky he was to find us… here he is.. ready to go home!
Tom has an absolutely wonderful character, shy at first, but once he knows you and understands you will never hurt him he´s all love and affection. He is great with all animals… submissive, the kind of character that will never create problems. A pacifist.
Have a look… this dog has gone through hell and back and now he´s ready to go HOME!!!
Update 17 March…
Remember Tom´s condition when we found him?
It´s very difficult to put these images in words… the transformation is so unbelievable… Here he is.. the new TOM!!
For the animals
