Every day in the United States, animals are beaten, neglected, or forced to struggle for survival. Left in unsanitary conditions with no food or water, they have little hope as they live out their days without the compassion they deserve. Some are found and rescued, given the chance to experience how great life and humans can be; one of them was Duke. It is easy to understand why dogs that end up in the shelters usually get vicious to other dogs and humans, after fighting for food in the street, abused by people in the streets; they feel that they have to protect themselves. This video is about the story of adoption for an abused and abandoned dog called Duke. There are some very horrible people in the world who have no compassion for animals at all.
They abuse animals, neglect them, abandon them, and leave them to die. It makes us wonder how these people could bear seeing a poor soul suffer. Duke has lived chained for the last 5 years and was left to die, by the time Duke was rescued, he weighed half of what he should be; he was only 9 kilos, he was on the brink of death as he had been left without food and water and was so exhausted that he could barely lift the weight of the chain. Thankfully, there are still some kindhearted people in the world. Volunteers from the Ilioupolis Animal Welfare Union in Greece rescued him, where he was also treated for dirofilaria, or roundworms. Watch his amazing transformation and what a little love and care can do to heal a broken soul. Duke is now the happiest dog you’ll ever see.
He’s doubled in weight; he’s extremely playful and he’s a healthy dog who loves everyone! Now Duke has been adopted into a loving forever home. Watching him roll around like a little goofball in the grass makes my heart fill up with such joy!
