When rescue workers found Oliver, a puppy, covered in flies lying under a car in India, their first thought was that the worst had happened.
But when they got closer to the poor guy, they were amazed to find his little heart was still beating. Animal Aid Unlimited’s rescue team wrapped him up in a blanket and carefully carried the vulnerable dog away with them.
He was so fragile and underweight that they had to take extra care with him – he clearly hadn’t eaten in a while, his skinny legs couldn’t support his weight and his temperature was dangerously low.
Caring workers warmed him up using blankets and by rubbing him, they also gave him IV fluids. Then, after an hour, an amazing journey began.
The brave little dog started to show his fighting spirit – he started looking round and was clearly determined to live.
