A helpless puppy was found tied to a bench in Mexico, unable to move. He had no food and no water, but he was too terrified to let anyone approach him. The only explanation of his heartbreaking past was a note in Spanish, which seemed to be written by a child.
This poor puppy thought his life was coming to an end that day, but animal rescuers refused to give up on him. They helped show him how amazing life can be by giving him unlimited love and affection. Now, he’s getting ready for his second chance at life.
Show Some Kindness
Marcela Goldberg with Mascotas Coyoacan received a call about the lonely puppy. She and fellow rescuer Azul Galindo rushed to save the dog. Many kind strangers had stopped to give the dog some basic needs like food and water, but the scared pup growled whenever anyone got too close. Sadly, this sight wasn’t a surprise to Goldberg. She had witnessed many dogs get left behind amid the stress of the pandemic.
The dog still refused to let volunteers touch him, but Goldberg was able to get close enough to look at the handwritten note, which was held down by a rock. The tear-jerking message explained why the dog was so fearful of humans.
“Hi, please adopt me: Max. Please, I ask you to adopt this dog and take good care of him,” the letter read. “Leaving my dog here hurts a lot, but I made the decision because my relatives abused him and it was painful to see him in that situation. So if you read this and you feel moved, please adopt him and look after him. If not, please leave the letter here so another person can read it and adopt him. Thanks.”
After cutting the dog’s chain off, he calmed down a bit. He was still scared, but he eventually let Goldberg pet him once they were away from the bench. Thus, it was the beginning of a new chapter for him.
A New Leash on Life
Once the puppy started using a regular leash instead of a chain, he slowly began to warm up to humans. They also changed his name from Max to Boston so he wouldn’t have to think about his unfortunate past.
7-month-old Boston is slowly learning to trust humans again. His rescuers have noticed him becoming more playful, affectionate, and happy as the days go on. He’s almost ready to find a forever family who will show him what true love is like.
“He is sweet, very affectionate, he loves to give kisses and play with the ball that the vet gave him,” said Goldberg.
Now, the organization is going through adoption applications to find the perfect home for Boston. They will ensure that his next home is a place where he will feel safe for the rest of his life. After all, he truly deserves it after everything he has been through.
