A dog named Elvis, who was chained by his owner for 19 years, has been rescued by a compassionate animal lover and taken to a shelter where he is receiving care and support.
Elvis was found in a horrific state of neglect and abuse, barely able to walk or breathe.
He was emaciated, weak, and covered in wounds and parasites. He had unkempt fur and no hope.
His rescuer, who works at a shelter called Takis Shelter non profit organization, was shocked and heartbroken when he saw Elvis’s condition.
He confronted the owner and asked him why he treated Elvis so cruelly.
The owner said that he got Elvis as a puppy in April 2004, and that he never let him go free except for a few times when he escaped from the chain. He showed no remorse or guilt for what he had done to the poor dog.
The rescuer took Elvis to his shelter, where he gave him food, water, and medical attention.
He also took him to the vet to get blood tests and check his health. To his surprise, the results showed that Elvis did not have any serious diseases or infections, and that his liver and kidney were functioning well.
This gave the rescue team some hope that Elvis could recover and live a better life.
They started to help Elvis learn how to walk again, since he was used to walking in circles due to the chain.
They also gave him love, affection, and comfort, something that Elvis had never felt before. They are trying so hard to make him happy and bring him back to life.
Elvis is still in a critical condition, and he needs a lot of care and support. But he is also showing signs of improvement and resilience.
He is eating more, gaining weight, and becoming more active. He is also starting to trust people and enjoy their company. He is slowly discovering a new world of freedom and joy.
His rescuers are determined to help him as much as they can, and they hope that one day Elvis will find a loving home where he can be safe and happy.
They also hope that Elvis’s story will raise awareness about the plight of chained dogs, and inspire people to take action against animal cruelty.
