This dog had been living in an abandoned lot for several months. He was sick and struggling to survive.
Gideon was found with deep lacerations around his neck.
It’s uncertain whether or not Gideon’s former owners were physically abusive, but it was obvious that he suffered neglect and deep emotional abuse.
Even though the dog knew he needed help and was terribly ill, he had a hard time trusting his rescuers.
He was literally trembling with fear at the sight of people.
Then, something amazing happened. Watch the video to see how all of this unfolded…
Not only did Gideon’s body began to heal, but his spirit did as well. Instead of quaking in fear when he saw humans, he began to realize they could be a source of love and comfort. The love and hope within him blossomed, shining through.
The Animal Wellness Foundation generously paid for Gideon’s medical care, which was more than $4,000. Please support them and help them rescue the pups they come across like Gideon.
