If you’ve been complaining about your months-long stay inside your house due to home quarantine, it is nothing — really, really nothing — compared to a dog who endured more than a decade, being chained, neglected, and unloved.
Let that sink in.
An uploader with a username ‘jipiper84’ has documented the fantastic progress of a dog who has experienced a long time of being unloved, until finding a family that would show him much-needed love.
Here is the dog’s inspiring story:
It all started when the man who uploaded the video can’t help but notice a particular dog in his community whom he hasn’t seen detached from his chain for the past three years that the uploader is living in the community.
According to him, every time the dog sees him passing by, the dog never fails to bark at him, giving him the impression that the dog isn’t friendly at all. But he was totally curious about the dog, that one day, he decided to visit the dog to see him up close.
When he visited him beside his fence, as expected, the dog barked and barked at him, so he waited until the dog stopped and finally approached and comforted him, saying that he is there to help him. The dog was reluctant at first, but after a few moments of talking to the dog to comfort him, the furry fellow finally walked towards him.
Even with his excitement to touch the dog, the uploader was still cautious because since this was their first meeting, he fears that the dog might suddenly bite him. But after he touched the dog’s head, ears, and fur to tell him that he was a friend, the dog loved the affection and stayed calm throughout their interaction.
The uploader continued to do this for several weeks, giving (and even showering) the dog the love, care, and attention he badly needs.
The dog whom the uploader named Rusty Diamond was far from being a healthy dog. When he met him, he quickly noticed several serious physical conditions that the dog is enduring. His filthy coat, fleas, and exposed flesh in the ears all need immediate medication so that Rusty can be healthy just like any normal dog.
No one might know it, but Rusty Diamond might ask that question for many years since he has been chained inside a fence for 15 long years. But the uploader, having developed a strong bond with the dog, is determined to show him the world beyond the fence and let him experience life without a leash.
When he saw the lady who turns out to be the dog’s owner, he told her that the poor dog needs medications. He reminded her that leaving a dog in a situation like what Rusty Diamond is suffering is considered animal cruelty. Without giving any serious attention to what he just have said, the lady just laughed. She said (as if boasting) that the dog was chained and remained in that condition for 15 years.
He then persuaded the owner to take the dog with him, and the lady thought about it for several minutes, and finally, she agreed. The lady warned him that the dog might suddenly bite him when she handed the dog over him, but with the bond that he has developed with Rusty Diamond, he is confident that the dog won’t do it.
In fact, the dog was more than delighted to come with him, and the uploader, too, was too delighted to show Rusty Diamond the vast world behind his fence. Now that Rusty is in a better place, the 15 years he had suffered inside a fence would soon be nothing but a distant memory now that he is in a loving family.
