Meet Frank, the happiest Dachshund that you’ll ever see.
It’s always nice to see when a previously mistreated animal finds a loving home and returns to their happy self, and that is exactly what happened for this 1 1/2 year old Dachshund that found his way into the lives of the Borges family.
Below is the owner’s YouTube description of the events that took place leading up to Frank’s rescue and his subsequent happiness!
“This is Frank, a 1,5 year old dog that only wanted some love and care to be happy. Now he is so happy that even when sleeping he shows it.
“I did this video to show how can one change the life a being with only love and care.
“When my wife and I spoke with the previous owner, we were sure that he would die in a few days. He was 5 months old, no vaccines and weighted only 6.6 pounds (3 kg). By the way, the ‘vet’ said that there was no need for vaccines..
“When we arrived to see him, we saw that it was even worse: as the owner had no experience in dog caring, he was locked outside in a 50 ft2 (5 m2) ceramic tiles back area, fed only with adult dog food, shedding excessively and unbearable smelly. His only friend was a torn blanket.
“We can’t be sure, but we suspect that this mistreatment lead to the worse for him: he got totally deaf. We suspect that a overlooked infection did this to him.
“When we got him, he was afraid of shadows, glimmerings, peed everything (including himself), no tail wagging and fearful. By the way, until today he runs for his life whenever he sees a broom…
“Now, see him enjoying his dream so much that he even wags his tail and realise that we saved a life, bringing him happiness, is moving.
“So please, if you can, spread the adoption idea (and this video). You too can safe a life.”
What this family did for this mistreated pet is uplifting and will hopefully serve as an encouragement to those considering pet adoption themselves.
