Earlier in the year, a hapless young dog was discovered in a tree on a farm in central Georgia without any food, shelter or security.
For a period of four years, this poor pup was forced to brave the elements, with no protection from the scorching sun or relentless rain. He was left feeling hungry and thirsty, with no one to tend to his needs. His appearance is quite pitiful as he weighs just 11kg, which is not enough for him to compete in his breed (Pit Bull) as he should ideally be at least 20kg. To add to his misery, he has numerous bruises that cover his body.
Thankfully, after someone lodged an anonymous complaint, the local rescue team from Cordele Animal Shelter went out in search of the dog. Once they located him, they shared his heartbreaking story on social media, accompanied by some distressing photographs.
This poor little creature is in desperate need of a new abode where he can be reunited with his long-lost companion. The helpless pup requires urgent attention and care, and the rescuer at Cordele Animal Shelter is seeking a suitable home for him. Initially dubbed “cocaine,” the puppy’s fate took a turn for the better when he was rescued and received proper care. He has now been renamed “Hero” to celebrate his courage and strength.
The puppy has undergone a significant change since moving into its new residence, thanks to its loving owner who treats it with care and attention. Unlike its previous owner, the new owner has showered the pup with affection, making a noticeable difference in its behavior. According to the adoptive mother’s Facebook post, the puppy was delighted with the small meal she gave him, and he comfortably settled into his kennel, complete with night lights and a radio.
