Sick or wounded dogs have always been a strong reason to make our hearts fill with sorrow. However, many people see a dog in need and pass it by just to leave it there, helpless, desperate and in a dangerous environment where terrible things can happen.
A dog in Mexico City was in such a horrible shape that rescuers were shocked when they first saw him. However, miracles still happen and the short life that everybody expected him to live got better, longer and healthier.
The cute dog was not only homeless, starved and weak but also fully covered in cancerous tumors. His whole body had turned into a mass of tumors while his eyes were just too sad to look at. Everybody understood that this animal required some serious help.
His situation was so heartbreaking that the chances doctors gave him were too weak. Nevertheless, and without being able to tell whether or not the cancer had spread so much that treatment was a lost cause, trying to help him became the rescuers’ number one priority.
Professional help, though, is not the only thing animals in need require. Love is the best treatment and, thank God, the stray dog was lucky enough to find it. Dalia, an animal rights activist, came across this amazing dog at the center and decided that she had to share the doggy’s story on the Internet.
She named him Boby.
The stray dog which was not stray anymore was examined by vets who estimated that he was roughly two years old and the chances remained weak. Because of its aggressive character, Boby’s cancer had to be fought with chemotherapy.
After eight sessions, the cancer was still aggressive and the fact that he had been starving for so long was not helping.
But Something Happened!
To everyone’s amazement, Boby started making a great, speedy recovery! His scars were now covered by a new, shiny coat and the chemotherapy combined with the love Dalia gave him helped him become a healthy dog!
His skin and health were not the only parts of Boby that were getting better. His mood and energy evolved and he quickly became a fun doggy. As an “online celebrity,” and thanks to Dalia, Boby found a new home at a glance.
Today he is happier than ever and his new foster family has another great dog he can hang out with. The shelter was sad to see him go and Dalia still misses him but his new environment is really supportive.
