Firu’s Homecoming

From WBTV: After spending 48 days recovering from massive injuries, Firu the dog is starting a new life in a new home.

Animal rescuer Samantha Hodges arranged for a limousine to pick up the dog from the Animal Hospital of East Burke in Valdese last Wednesday afternoon. Firu was at first reluctant to hop into the limo, but eventually warmed up the idea of riding like a star. The dog was turned over to animal control after being dragged behind a pickup truck while tied to a rope. The dragging tore parts of flesh away from Firu’s body and required several surgeries to heal.

Hodges adopts out most of her rescues, but she’s keeping Firu. The two have grown inseparable since Firu’s time in her care, and after seeing a few minutes of this brave dog in action, I can understand why. See two new videos below – this is what we’ve been waiting for: Firu is home and happy and loved.

  2. It’s amazing how animals can come back and nit only trust, but love and bond again after such treatment.
