Being a dog owner is not an easy task. It’s a difficult job that requires constant effort. In return, you get the best friend you could ask for.
It’s precisely this reason why not everyone should have a dog. If people do not have the patience to care for their furry friend, they don’t need to adopt one.
In this story, we will talk about a dog who was just cruelly abandoned by his previous owners and left inside a doghouse.
Bo’s In A Horrible Condition
When Bo was first found by the Street Dog Rescue, in Oklahoma, he already had many health issues that needed addressing.
His owners had cruelly left him behind in a doghouse, and he had been alone ever since then.
Faith, who was one of the rescuers, told The Dodo: Bo was actually attacked by coyotes. He was never taken to a vet or even prior to that. He just had mange all over him.
They gave him some food, and it was clear that he hadn’t eaten anything in days. From his interactions with the rescuers, Faith knew that all he wanted was for someone to love him.
After that, he went inside his doghouse and just refused to go outside. The rescuers realized that they would have to pull him out of there.
They managed to get him out of there, only for him to crawl under his house. Faith and the crew tried to pull him out gently again, but he wouldn’t budge.
It took them roughly 45 minutes to get Bo out from under the house. Faith said: Finally, we were able to get him out. He actually ended up with the rescue, Pyr Paws and Fluffy Tails.
Bo’s Road To Happiness
On his road to recovery, Bo was taken to a veterinarian clinic in Oklahoma where he received treatment for his mange and food to help him get his weight up.
When his new mom, Patricia, saw his picture for the first time, she was shocked by his appearance. She said: He looked so terrible I didn’t even think he was a dog.
However, as time went on, Bo’s condition improved, and he began to look a lot healthier. A few months later, he was a completely changed dog.
The rescuers knew that he deserved a good owner, so Patricia felt like she was up to the task because she had also worked with rescue dogs before.
Even though he was in his new home, Bo didn’t quite get used to it right away. Patricia said: It took maybe six months for him to really realize that this was his home.
That, too, would change with time, as he would go on to become just the happiest dog who loves exploring his surroundings.
She continues by saying: I just love him and I’m very happy I got him.
It’s great that Bo got a new chance to live his life. Even though he was reserved around new people because of his abandonment, Patricia’s kindness showed him that he was safe and loved in her home.
