A nice Samaritan found a folded up blanket on the street. Pulling it up, he realized that a dying dog was inside.
The animal, who would later be called Harris, had just been abandoned following severe cruelty .
Urgently brought to Stray Rescue in Saint Louis (SR), his injuries were treated by medical staff and he was provided intravenous fluids and pain killers. The volunteers sat next to him, hoping for any reaction to the stimulation. It was entirely fine to wait for a signal.
When the mending process wasn’t proceeding as planned, a shelter volunteer decided to lie down next to him, so that he could feel his presence.
Every day, Harris impresses everyone with fresh advancements. It seemed dubious that he could succeed. He hoped for an improvement, but each stride ahead astonished his human acquaintances. Eventually he recovered , till he ran!
Harris continues to fill the rescuers with pride. He is full of enthusiasm, and now, also of self-confidence. He is still healing, but no one believes that he will make a full recovery and find the right match for good.
