Unfortunately, and even with efforts of animal lovers to spread awareness, we still see cases of animal abuse. Every day we hear lots of heartbreaking stories about dogs that are abused and subjected to difficult situations that leave their physical and psychological health at huge risk. However, it is always heartwarming to hear that some people are willing to put their own lives and interest on the line in order to save an animal that is in need, no matter how much effort is needed.

And because of these rescues, we get to see the most amazing things taking place, and it proves to us that all dogs just need a bit of kindness to make them give their full potential of love.
And you’re about to meet one of those amazing dogs.

In this video you will see Catcher, a German Shepherd that has been subjected to a painful injury. For reasons still unknown, Catcher’s face and snout has burned off, leaving his skin pealing away.

When the founder of A Purposeful Rescue, Hillary Rosen, heard of Catcher’s case, she decided that she had to take him in.

But when Rosen met Catcher, she was surprised to see the psychological state of the brave dog. Despite his horrible injury, Catcher is a very cheerful dog, who likes to play and almost never stops wagging his tail – even through vet appointments!

At first, they were worried that Catcher couldn’t see because of the burns on his face, but the vet confirmed that his vision is fine. Catcher has undergone surgery to remove an ulcer in his eyes, and is now recovering in a foster home. And through it all, he has remained a strong, happy dog.
