A tiny puppy lived in an old broken crate on a vacant lot, trying to hide behind the broken wood from the weather. Passersby noticed the little puppy, saw that he could not walk, but thought it was due to poor health. In reality, everything turned out to be much simpler. The puppy simply had to be washed, because the movements were restricted by the hair sticking together from the dirt and tar.
It was impossible to look at what the baby was eating without tears. In the absence of human care and normal food, the puppy began to eat the bark of nearby trees and the crate in which he lived. It was so until indifferent people saw the little guy and took him in. The puppy was named Rusik and the volunteers spent the first week cleaning the dirt off of him. Even groomers after a couple of attempts to clean the puppy’s fur recognized their defeat. The puppy was given to the care of one of the volunteers, and he confessed that he liked the baby from the first minute. Rusik was very calm, friendly and intelligent. The puppy did not cause any problems, if it were not for health problems. Eating wood took a toll on his body and the veterinarians took a long time to select his treatment and appropriate diet.
Over time, the situation seemed to get better, and the dog even found a new family. The new owners immediately treated Rusik as a member of the family, cherished and nurtured him, giving him tenderness, care, and love in an attempt to compensate for the difficult life on the street.
Unfortunately, the past was in no hurry to let Rusik go to a new life. Over time, it turned out that the dog could not clean his bowels properly. Each attempt to go to the toilet became a real torture of pain for Rusik. The new family did not give up on their beloved pet.
Rusik was shown to all the veterinarians in the city, and he also visited the most famous private veterinary clinic. It was there that they were able to discover the cause of the problem — a deformed pelvis. The puppy must have been badly beaten before he even got on the street, which led to the development of irreversible changes in the course of pelvic bone formation.
Rusik’s new family is not giving up and is looking for ways to solve the problem and money for treatment, because this little guy could still turn out well.
