The Starving Frightened Dog Wags Her Tail For The Very First Time

The Starving Frightened Dog Wags Her Tail For The Very First Time

When the rescuers from Howl Of A Dog, an animal rescue organization, met a starving dog named Mina for the first time, they were heartbroken to see the condition she was in.

The pup was so underweight that she could barely stand on her paws. She also had patches of missing fur.

Mina was frightened, and the rescuers knew that she she didn’t trust them. They were determined to help her turn her life around and become the dog she was always meant to be.

They immediately rushed her to the veterinary clinic. The pup tried to eat any object she saw, and the rescuers had no other choice but to put a muzzle on her face during her medical checkup. It was for her own safety.

The vet informed the rescuers that the doggo was infested with mange and that she also had an intestinal infection.

After she received the necessary medication, Mina was taken to a shelter where she started her road to recovery. Her caregivers fed her and added supplements to her food.

Mina was traumatized and she was trembling with fear whenever they tried to stroke her. Her rescuers’ hearts broke to see her so scared. Her tail never wagged. 

Mina’s caregivers cuddled her while she was sleeping, wishing their love could erase everything she had been through.

They pampered her with excellent care and bathed her with special shampoo. Soon, the doggo looked much better. Her eyes radiated with hope and gratitude.

Gradually, Mina became more cheerful. After realizing how deeply her rescuers care about her, Mina began trusting them and letting herself enjoy their cuddles.

She loved belly rubs the most. Her human friends rejoiced at seeing that her condition was improving more and more. She turned into the sweetest pooch.

Mina doubled her weight and she was full of energy. The adorable canine looked like a totally different pup. She was running and playing with the other rescue dogs, Harper and Bandit. 

Her rescuers were over the moon when they saw the wonderful pup wag her tail for the first time. Mina became a real dog who enjoyed life.
